How to Import Contacts into HubSpot

Importing contacts is a fundamental step in setting up your HubSpot CRM. To import contacts:

  1. Prepare your import file ensuring it adheres to HubSpot's file requirements, such as being in .csv, .xlsx, or .xls format, containing a header row, and not exceeding 1000 columns.
  2. Log into your HubSpot account and navigate to your contacts, companies, deals, tickets, or products.
  3. Click on 'Import' in the upper right, then on 'Start an import'.
  4. Select 'File from computer' and follow the prompts to upload your file and map your data to HubSpot properties.

Ensure your file includes essential properties like 'First name', 'Last name', and 'Email' for contacts. HubSpot provides sample import files to guide you in setting up your file correctly.

Import Data to HubSpot

HubSpot supports importing a wide range of data, including contacts, companies, deals, and custom objects. The process involves:

  1. Preparing your import files according to HubSpot's specifications.
  2. Choosing the type of import: single object, multiple objects, or activities.
  3. Mapping your data to HubSpot's CRM fields during the import process.

It's crucial to have 'Import' permissions and understand HubSpot's data model, including objects, records, and properties. For efficient data management, consider using HubSpot's data sync for a two-way sync with other systems instead of importing.

Import LinkedIn Contacts to HubSpot

Importing LinkedIn contacts directly into HubSpot can be challenging due to privacy and data permission constraints. However, you can:

  1. Export your LinkedIn network to a CSV file via LinkedIn's 'Settings & Privacy'.
  2. Prepare the CSV file according to HubSpot's import requirements.
  3. Import the file into HubSpot, organizing these contacts into a static list for easy management.

For a more streamlined process, consider integrating HubSpot with LinkedIn to enrich and speed up multi-channel outreach.

How to Import Deals into HubSpot

Importing deals into HubSpot follows a similar process to importing contacts:

  1. Prepare your import file with necessary deal information.
  2. Use the 'Import' feature within the 'Deals' section of your HubSpot account.
  3. Map your deal data to the corresponding fields in HubSpot during the import process.

Ensure your import file includes essential deal properties such as 'Deal Name', 'Pipeline', and 'Deal Stage' for new deals, or 'Record ID' for updating existing deals.
