Why use HubSpot to build your website?
To drive lead generation and understand the paths to conversion, it's become essential for the website to be easy to edit and connected to the rest of the business' marketing and sales activity.

The finder allows you to manage all of your folders, templates, modules and coded files in one place. It's like a search engine for all of your website documents.
You can also create new files or folders, or take any action on the file or document currently selected , such as delete, clone or rename the asset, as well as show the revision history of a particular asset.
The layout editor features a drag and drop interface, allowing for the addition of new modules anywhere on the page. Modules can be modified easily using the inspector on the right-hand side of the page or by right-clicking on the module in question.
Modules dragged and dropped onto pages can be adjusted as necessary and as all HubSpot templates are responsive, they will automatically adjust to different screen sizes.
The inspector allows you to add and edit components in a template or module. Editing capabilities are dependent on the task being performed. For example, if you are editing a component, the inspector will show all the features and options of that component. If you are editing a module, the inspector will allow you to edit and add fields to that module.
If you want to customise your website further, you’ll do it in HubSpot's Module Editor.
