So, you’ve decided to launch that business and need a website that will not only be attractive but will also work smart for your inbound marketing initiatives. However, you may not be a designer and aren’t quite sure where to begin to launch your online presence. Hubspot is a great place to start. Whether you’re just in the early stages of a new business or you’re ready to give your brand a face lift, Hubspot has modern website design template options that are attractive, easy-to-use and hardworking.

It is worth mentioning that when we help a business develop a website, no matter if the development is from a template or created from scratch, we always map out the information that should be communicated on each page and the design must reinforce the company brand image. In other words, you could see two sites created by Bristol Strategy using the same template but they would look completely different. Templates are a tool. The design has to achieve the client's goals. See the recent blog about our website design journey if you want to understand our detailed process.  

Templates are available to create complete websites or just specific tools such as case studies, email campaigns, blogs, landing pages, etc. You can create as much or as little as you want based on your needs. The templates aren’t just functional either. They’re beautiful, engaging and sure to represent you with style. We’ve collected 7 Hubspot website design templates (because we focus on Hubspot due to the platform's ability to deliver results for inbound marketing programs) that we feel meet these criteria and worth a look. For those of you who are interested in building a wordpress website, please check out this link for interesting wordpress templates.
