So you're using HubSpot CRM and you want to maximize its utility by integrating it with other email tools. One of the key steps in achieving this is to export your contacts from HubSpot. In this guide, we'll walk you through the methods to export your contacts so that you can use them seamlessly with other platforms.

Why Would You Want to Export Contacts from HubSpot?

  1. Data Portability: Exporting allows you to have a backup of your contacts that you can use in any other tool.
  2. Email Marketing: You can integrate these contacts with other email marketing tools to run more specialized campaigns.
  3. Analysis and Reporting: Exported data can be analyzed in spreadsheets or other analytical tools for further insights.
  4. Multi-Platform Strategy: For organizations using multiple platforms, exporting contacts is the first step to consolidate all customer data.

Method 1: Native Export from HubSpot

HubSpot itself provides an easy way to export your contacts:

Steps

  1. Navigate to Contacts: Open your HubSpot dashboard and go to the Contacts section.
  2. Select the View: Choose the particular view that has the contacts you want to export.
  3. Find the Export Option: Click on the Options button usually found at the top right of the contact list.
  4. Choose Export Format: You will be prompted to select the format in which you want to export your contacts, either CSV or Excel.
  5. Confirmation: HubSpot will send you an email with a download link for your exported file once it's ready.

Method 2: Using Skyvia's Query Tool

If you're looking for a more automated, schedule-based, or intricate data export, Skyvia's Query tool can come in handy. It offers integration with Google Sheets and Excel and requires no coding skills.

Steps

  1. Skyvia Signup: Navigate to Skyvia's HubSpot Connector and create an account.
  2. Connect Skyvia to HubSpot: You will need to authenticate and grant Skyvia permissions to access your HubSpot account.
  3. Customize Your Query: Use the Query tool to specify what data you want to export.
