- HubSpot CMS migration from WordPress
- HubSpot custom theme design

- Ongoing HubSpot development support
Profile Plan needed help migrating their website from WordPress to HubSpot. Unable to use HubSpot for the website migration, Profile Plan chose another company for the task. Soon, they realized that the developers they hired did not possess the necessary communication skills and technical know-how to complete the project.
Profile Plan started their search for a HubSpot-certified development agency partner that not only knew HubL (HubSpot’s programming language) but could also work collaboratively alongside their internal team and stay in constant communication. This is how ProfilePlan found HubBase.
A true partnership. HubBase works collaboratively with Profile Plan’s team providing ongoing HubSpot CMS support for projects ranging from new HubSpot theme rollouts to building custom calculators and creating geolocation-based online purchasing capabilities.
Launched in 2011, Profile Plan is a weight loss and nutrition program that was created using science and medical research. ProfilePlan touts itself as an extension of the doctor’s office, and offers education, meal plans, and one-on-one coaching.
Because everyone is different, Profile Plan doesn’t subscribe to a one-size-fits-all solution. Instead, they have tailored food plans that take several factors into account, including dietary needs, kidney disease, diabetes, and more. The platform also has world-class coaches dedicated to setting up customers for long-term success.
Katie Herrmann is the Director of Digital Strategy at Profile Plan. Since 2020, she has led the company’s digital marketing, search engine marketing, and email marketing strategy. Because she manages the full user experience and works to get users converted into leads, Hermann, who is also the co-founder of Cirka Performance Arts, played a pivotal role in Profile’s migration to HubSpot.
How It Started
Profile Plan needed to migrate the website from WordPress to HubSpot CMS. “We already used HubSpot CRM, and we decided to consolidate our platforms and migrate to HubSpot CMS,” says Katie Herrmann, Director of Digital Strategy at Profile Plan.
Originally, Katie hoped to use HubSpot for a website migration from WordPress, but because their website has a lot of custom functionality, HubSpot was unable to provide website migration services.
The team found a web development company to work on the migration project. However, it didn’t turn out to be as smooth as they had hoped.
Quick, quality dev work. I have really enjoyed working with the HubBase team on a variety of development projects over the last year. We use HubBase as our main website development team, and we rely on them for integration, migration, and HubSpot development work.
Not only did the HubBase developer assist Profile Plan with a smooth website migration from WordPress to HubSpot CMS, but the team started handling ongoing as-needed support with all HubSpot development-related projects.
In mid-2021, Profile Plan tasked HubBase to implement online purchasing capabilities — a function it didn’t previously have — and to build a HubSpot CMS calculator.
We wanted to build a calculator and looked at HubSpot plug-ins. We couldn’t find a solution, and ultimately, every option we reviewed wouldn’t work exactly how we needed it to. We came up with a set of criteria. We provided all of the design, and the logic behind it. How to get it to function and integrate with our system was the challenge we faced, and HubBase was able to help us solve that puzzle.
Katie knew she needed to hire a team that excelled at communication, was responsive, and could provide quick turnarounds.
I appreciate how quick HubBase is to respond via Slack and Trello.com. If you want a team that is well-versed in HubSpot, HubBase is a great partner you can rely on.
“It’s been a really good partnership for both the quality of work and the turnaround times,” Katie says. “Most of the time the work is already done before the specified deadline.”
