HubSpot's Content Optimization System (HubSpot COS details) is a mobile-responsive, fully-integrated website, blogging, and landing page system. Like most content management systems (WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc.) it's easy to optimize for search and fully capable of all kinds of integrations.
The platform's real value, however, is that the COS is built right on top of your marketing database.
Integrating your contact database with your website platform allows you to deeply personalize the experience for your website visitors. That personalization, provides context to your content, and is critical for converting visitors to leads, and leads to customers.
Choosing to build on the HubSpot COS makes your marketing efforts smarter and your sales cycle shorter, by allowing you to provide the right content to the right person at the right time.
Unlike many CMS's, the COS isn't free. That raises the entry to barrier for developers as well as for users. In addition to the cost (HubSpot starts at $200/month, see HubSpot pricing), HubSpot's COS certification program weeds out a lot of developers and agencies who aren't serious about excelling at the platform.
When you partner with a COS-certified development team, you know that you're working with folks who take both inbound marketing and high-quality web development seriously.
Here's the bottom line: if you're investing in a new website on the COS, it's worth it to work with a certified COS development team.
[Coincidentally, GuavaBox is COS-certified...imagine that?]
Our COS website design pricing starts at $10,000. Many of our initial projects wind up in the 15K - 30K range.
That being said, there are a lot of variables that impact pricing for a new COS website, so let's dig into the variables and a couple examples to give you a rough idea.
Major pricing variables include:
The development time for most projects is 6-12 weeks, and largely depends on your ability to get content and feedback to us in a timely fashion. Most projects are finished well within the estimated time frame that we've agreed to up-front.
