Fluent Support: HubSpot CRM Integration

Connecting Fluent Support, a self-hosted WordPress help desk plugin, with HubSpot CRM can streamline your customer support operations and enhance your marketing efforts. This guide will walk you through the steps to integrate Fluent Support with HubSpot CRM using SureTriggers.

Why Integrate Fluent Support with HubSpot CRM?

While Fluent Support directly integrates with many tools, HubSpot CRM isn’t one of them. Before diving into the integration process, let’s explore the benefits of connecting your CRM with a Helpdesk:

Centralized Customer Data

Combining Fluent Support and HubSpot CRM ensures that all customer interactions and data are stored in one place. This centralization makes it easier to track customer history, preferences, and interactions.

Improved Customer Experience 

By integrating these platforms, support agents can access support data in the CRM, providing more personalized and efficient support.

Enhanced Marketing Efforts 

Syncing support data with HubSpot CRM allows marketing teams to segment and target customers more effectively, using insights from support interactions to inform campaigns.

Automated Workflows 

SureTriggers can automate various tasks, such as creating new CRM contacts from support tickets or updating existing records with new information, saving time and reducing manual work.

Step-by-Step Guide to HubSpot CRM integration

Before you begin the integration process, ensure that both Fluent Support and HubSpot CRM are properly set up and configured.

Step 1: Set Up Fluent Support and HubSpot CRM

Install Fluent Support 

Installing Fluent Support is as simple as searching in your WordPress dashboard or downloading it directly from the WordPress repository. Configuring means setting up a business inbox and adding agents. You can get started with solving tickets within 5 minutes.

Set Up HubSpot CRM 

If you haven’t already, sign up for a HubSpot account and set up your CRM. Customize your CRM settings, create pipelines, and add any necessary custom fields to track support-related information.

Note: If you’re planning to use HubSpot CRM for service then Fluent Support integration might not be as essential. However, if you want your customer data to remain in your control (like hosting it on your own server space), Fluent Support is the best option there is. 

Step 2: Sign Up for SureTriggers

SureTriggers is a powerful automation tool that can connect various apps and services. To start using SureTriggers, follow these steps:

Step 3: Create a New WorkFlow

With SureTriggers, you can create “triggers” that automate actions between Fluent Support and HubSpot CRM. To be more specific, SureTriggers looks for events in Fluent Support and triggers actions on the HubSpot CRM according to the triggers. 

Here’s how to create a new trigger:

Select HubSpot CRM as the Action App

Save and Test the Trigger 

Once you have configured the action, save the trigger. SureTriggers will provide an option to test the trigger to ensure it works correctly. Perform a test to verify that the data is being transferred accurately between Fluent Support and HubSpot CRM.

Step 5: Activate the HubSpot Integration

After testing the trigger and confirming that it works as expected, change status to live. SureTriggers will now automatically perform the defined actions whenever the specified trigger event occurs in Fluent Support.

Activate the Trigger 

Go to the SureTriggers dashboard and activate the trigger. Ensure that it is set to run continuously or according to your preferred schedule.

Monitor and Refine

Monitor the trigger to ensure it is working smoothly. Check the SureTriggers dashboard for any errors or issues. Refine the trigger conditions and actions as needed to optimize the integration.
