Export Data from HubSpot for Analysis and Enrichment

Exporting your contacts from HubSpot is crucial for many businesses—it serves multiple vital purposes. First off, you get a backup of your contacts so if anything goes wrong within HubSpot, you can swiftly restore your contact data without breaking a sweat.

But it's not just about playing it safe! Exporting contacts also gives you freedom of movement with your data. You're not tied down to HubSpot—you've got a copy of your contacts, ready to be used on any platform or for any purpose you see fit.

Also, if you transfer it to a robust analytical tool, you can dive deep into your data and uncover gems of information that might have stayed hidden within HubSpot's interface. 

You get customized reports and tailored analysis that help you spot trends, pinpoint customer segments, and deliver personalized experiences to your customers. 

In this blog we discuss various limitations on HubSpot export data and workarounds for them.

The exporting process is easy, but it comes with certain limitations.

Limitations of Exporting HubSpot Data 

1. Export Limits

You can only export up to 300 times in a day and do three exports at once. If you exceed these limits, you have to wait. This can slow down your work if you export data often.

2. Large File Splitting

Big exports take time and might consist of many zip files. This happens when you have lots of data, like a long list of customers. It makes managing and using the data harder.

3. Manual Exporting

You have to export data manually each time. This can be a big job, especially for businesses that need to export data often, like nonprofits with lots of donors.

4. Lost Associations

When you export data, some links between different pieces of information may get left out. This is tough for businesses that rely on those connections, like real estate companies needing to link properties and sales.

5. Manual Data Restoration

If you need to bring back data from a backup, you have to do it manually, which takes time and can cause mistakes. 

6. Tracking Changes

When you export data, it's hard to see what modifications have been made over time. This is important for businesses that need to keep accurate records, like finance firms that follow the rules.

7. Security Risks

Exported files can end up on computers that aren't secure, which can be bad for data safety, especially with sensitive information like financial records.
