I am setting up Hubspot. There is a set up task about replacing my site's forms with Hubspot's forms.
There are two options to choose from: embed forms on external site or use API.
I am trying to choose which option to use. One question that will help us determine it is:
- Do both options support all form functionality? I specifically want to know if progressive profiling is available through both options. But I want to know about any other functionality that may not be available with the external site option and the API option so I can make an informed decision.
Some other questions that will help aid my decision:
I want the form to be indistinguishable from the page it lives in on my external site. It needs to be styled exactly like the site. Is this available with both options?
I want the ability to easily edit (add/delete) fields in the form via Hubspot as our lead generation process evolves? Is this supported by both options?
*I have developers available to help with the integration, but they charge hourly. Can you give me a sense of how much dev work is needed to accomplish each option? Like most devs can get it done in 2 hours, some may take as much as 5, anything over 7 is weird. Cost is not the primary consideration, but something I need to know to scope the project and control costs.
