What is an API integration in HubSpot?An API integration in HubSpot is a way to connect HubSpot with other software applications. This allows you to share data between the applications, automate tasks, and improve your workflow.
An API (application programming interface) is a set of rules that allow two software applications to talk to each other. When you integrate HubSpot with another application using an API, you are essentially giving the other application permission to access your HubSpot data.
There are many benefits to using API integrations in HubSpot. For example, you can:
- Automate tasks: Integrations can automate tasks that you would otherwise have to do manually. This can save you time and improve your efficiency.
- Improve accuracy: Integrations can help you ensure that your data is accurate and up-to-date. This is because the integration will automatically update your data in HubSpot whenever it changes in the other application.
- Increase productivity: Integrations can help you get more done in less time. This is because you can use the integration to automate tasks and access data from other applications without having to switch between applications.
- Improve collaboration: Integrations can help you collaborate with other team members more effectively. This is because you can share data and access information from other applications with your team members without having to send emails or create documents.
- Improve customer experience: Integrations can help you provide a better customer experience by making it easier for customers to interact with your business. For example, you can use an integration to automatically send customer support tickets to your CRM system.

- MailChimp: You can automatically add new leads to your MailChimp list from HubSpot.
