Understanding HubSpot Lists

Before adding contacts to a partner list, it's essential to understand the types of lists HubSpot offers:

  • Active Lists: Automatically update members based on specific criteria. Ideal for dynamic data that changes over time.
  • Static Lists: Do not automatically update after creation. Suitable for one-time email campaigns or event attendee lists.

Identifying whether your partner list is active or static will determine how you add contacts to it.

Adding Contacts to a Static List

For static lists, contacts can be added manually, through imports, or via workflows for users with Marketing Hub Professional and Enterprise accounts.

  1. Navigate to Contacts > Contacts or Contacts > Companies in your HubSpot account.
  2. Select the checkboxes next to the contacts or companies you wish to add.
  3. Click Add to static list and choose your partner list from the dropdown menu.

To add an individual contact:

  1. Go to Contacts > Contacts and click on the name of the contact.
  2. In the right panel, under List memberships, click Manage list memberships.
  3. Click Add to list, select your partner list, and then click Add.

For adding contacts from an import:

  1. Go to Contacts > Contacts and click Import.
  2. Select Add imported contacts to list from the More dropdown menu next to your import.
  3. Choose your partner list and click Add.

Using Workflows to Add Contacts to a Static List

For Marketing Hub Professional and Enterprise users, workflows can automate the process:

  1. Create a contact or company-based workflow.
  2. Set your enrollment triggers based on the desired criteria.
  3. Click the + icon and select Add to static list or Remove from static list as needed.
  4. Select your partner list from the dropdown menu and click Save.

Adding Contacts to an Active List

To add contacts to an active list, you must either:

  • Update the contact's properties to meet the list's criteria.
  • Adjust the list's criteria to include the specific contacts.

Remember, active lists dynamically update based on the criteria set, so adding contacts directly isn't necessary.
