One business won’t need all of these systems. When it comes down to it you can actually use one for just about everything. HubSpot can work as a CMS, CRM, SM manager, SEO tool, email builder, form builder, event builder and more. It’s not the perfect tool for each action, but it does the job well enough for most. However, it’s comparatively expensive as a CMS so not viable for small businesses.

Ignoring Hubspot, the systems you will need to effectively run marketing are:

1. A CMS to build your website. (Most CMS platforms can and do offer all domain, hosting and security as part of the package too) – it doesn’t really matter which one, so go for the best price (probably WordPress)
2. A CRM for your data/ interactions – again, it doesn’t really matter which one, so go for the best price
3. Google Adwords for building PPC campaigns/ Google Analytics for tracking channel progress
4. An emailer/ form builder
5. Design software to create graphics
6. Office to create documents
