HubSpot Certifications for Non-Marketers

We love HubSpot and most of our employees use it every single day. In my role, though, I'm mostly responsible for finance, accounting and human resources. I do engage with our clients occasionally, usually monthly when I communicate with them about invoices. Also, I participate in our weekly staff meetings and hear from our account managers on what is and isn't working for our clients.

3 Main Types of Websites: Which is Right for You?

The web we see on our screens will be always rendered the same way, with HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Even when we use different languages in the back-end like PHP, Node or Python, everything renders into the same HTML, CSS, JavaScript combo.

But with the modernization of these tools there are new ways to create websites. The most popular methods to build websites are:

  • CMS. A prebuilt set of tools that helps us to write, structure and present the content the way we want with less technical knowledge.

  • Site builders. This is a tool for people who can’t code. Users can drag and drop components and create a basic layout in hours, sometimes even minutes.
