HubSpot Import Contacts

Before importing contacts into HubSpot, ensure your import file meets HubSpot's requirements. The file must be in .csv, .xlsx, or .xls format, contain only one sheet, and include a header row with column headers that correspond to HubSpot properties. The file should be UTF-8 encoded, especially if it contains foreign language characters, and adhere to the technical limits based on your HubSpot subscription.

How to Import Contacts into HubSpot

To import contacts:

  1. Prepare your import file by organizing your data. Each row should represent a contact, and each column should represent a contact property such as first name, last name, and email address.
  2. In your HubSpot account, navigate to your contacts, companies, deals, or tickets overview.
  3. Click 'Import' in the top right corner.
  4. Select 'File from computer' and follow the prompts to upload your file.
  5. Choose how to import your data, whether creating new records, updating existing ones, or both.
  6. Map your file's columns to the corresponding HubSpot properties.
  7. Review and finalize your import settings, then start the import.

HubSpot will process your import, creating new contact records or updating existing ones based on the unique identifiers in your file, such as email addresses or custom unique value properties.

HubSpot YouTube Integration

For those looking to leverage YouTube data within HubSpot, connecting your YouTube account to HubSpot allows you to analyze video performance data directly within your HubSpot dashboard. This integration is available for Marketing Hub Enterprise users. Connect your YouTube account via the 'Social' section in your HubSpot settings, following the prompts to authorize the connection.

Enhance your marketing efforts by integrating HubSpot with YouTube for seamless video performance analysis.

HubSpot Import Contacts from Excel

When importing contacts from an Excel file, ensure your file is properly formatted according to HubSpot's file requirements. This includes having a single sheet, a header row with column headers that match HubSpot properties, and ensuring the file doesn't exceed the row and size limits of your HubSpot subscription. After preparing your Excel file, follow the standard import process to upload and map your data to HubSpot.
