When looking for reviews,
we ought to always favor customer reviews
over sites from reviewers
which may be biased
One of my favourite sites for customers' reviewers for software products is G2.
When looking at Hubspot's main product segment,
the CRM market
> CRM segment
It has very good ratings from customers
and its ranked as 2nd best amongst it's peers
Salesforce is a stock I would avoid at this stage
because they are currently in a large net debt position
which is a representation of an unhealthy balance sheet.
that leaves Hubspot as the best stock in the CRM space to invest in.
> Automated Marketing Software segment
Hubspot's second main product operating in the Automated Marketing Software space
also has fantastic reviews from users.
And its voted as the best in its class
when compared to peers,
in terms of:

is from the mobile app ratings from users

making the ratings more reliable

both which are very good signs of high user satisfaction

Market Adoption rate
Next, we shall look at the market's adoption rate
for the products & services offered by the company.
Google search trend
When comparing Hubspot's Google search trend with its most renown peers in the CRM space
although Hubspot ranked 3rd in terms of search volume,
after Salesforce & Zoho
who have both been in the market much longer, hence its understandable
Its search volume by itself is growing at a high CAGR of 19%
in the past 16 years
since the company was founded in June 2006 
this is a great sign of growth
in terms of market's awareness & interest for the company.
Hubspot is also well-known for their INBOUND events
which garners interests from digital marketers & professionals alike around the world.
it's a great opportunity for Hubspot to spread their brand awareness
and product offerings.
Next thing we can look at, is the amount of site traffics to Hubspot's website.
which appears to be in a healthy increasing trend over the past 10 years.
which is aligned with the google search trend's data above.
When compared to their peers'
One of the most noticeable thing is that
Hubspot's amount of organic traffic is higher compared to the
cumulative traffic amount of the other 3 most prominent players in the CRM space
this signals Hubspot's popularity in the CRM space.
Hubspot Sales also has a healthy 19% market share
in the Sales Performance Management product segment.
and a commanding 37% in the Marketing Automation space.

Especially if the company is operating in segments which's target market are spending:
alot of their time &
