We have just released our latest HubSpot SendGrid Integration called Mail Sync! MailSync is the simplest and most cost effective way to connect Sendgrid to HubSpot. Our HubSpot app listens for email events (clicks, opens, bounces and more) and logs these to the HubSpot Contact timeline to give you full visibility over all communications heading your customers way.

Example: You have an online store sending order confirmation and invoice details via email. If these emails are sent via SendGrid you can log these events when they occur on the HubSpot contact timeline as well. 

SendGrid is great for transactional emails or using as a custom SMTP server for your emails, and you can integrate it with your website or app to handle email sending. This gives you visibility over email deliverability so you can easily triage why an email didn’t hit your customer’s inbox. You can also use these data points for segmentation in HubSpot to further power your marketing campaigns. 

Cost effective!

HubSpot’s transactional email product is quite expensive and needs development time to integrate it into your website or app.
