Turtl can be combined with Hubspot to provide insight into how each individual reader is consuming your content. To do this, you will need to first configure the Hubspot integration and then send each reader their own lead capture URL (previously known as PURL - personalised URL ) for your content.

1. Ensure HubSpot integration is configured for your account

This can be done by following our guide. If you are unsure or need help, contact support@turtl.co or click the chat icon in the bottom right.

2. Create your email in HubSpot

Use the standard HubSpot email creation tools to create your email as normal.

When you come to add a link to your Turtl Doc, click the link option and insert your Turtl Doc URL as usual, but add the following to the end of the URL
?lead[store]=hubspot&lead[id]={{ contact.hs_object_id }}

For example, the Turtl Doc URL:



https://team.turtl.co/story/turtl-times-spring-2018?lead[store]=hubspot&lead[id]={{ contact.hs_object_id }}

Important note: What if you want to add HubSpot tracking to a personalized URL, or you also want to add UTM codes to the same URL? Just follow the below structure.

The first thing added to the end of your URL needs to start with a ‘?’. Any subsequent additions need to start with a ‘&’.

A personalized URL already has an addition after the normal Doc URL. See an example below.


The HubSpot tracking will therefore need to start with a ‘&’ instead. For example:

https://team.turtl.co/story/turtl-times-spring-2018/?pid=61a1124f2aa065410cd511cd&lead[store]=hubspot&lead[id]={{ contact.hs_object_id }}

Adding UTM tags works in the same way. Say you wanted to add two UTM tags, utm_source=linkedin and utm_campaign=primary_campaign. Adding them to the non-personalized example above would become:


contact.hs_object_id }}&utm_source=linkedin&utm_campaign=primary_campaign

Or, the personalized example from above would become:

https://team.turtl.co/story/turtl-times-spring-2018/?pid=61a1124f2aa065410cd511cd&lead[store]=hubspot&lead[id]={{ contact.hs_object_id }}&utm_source=linkedin&utm_campaign=primary_campaign

4. Send your email as usual

Select your recipients and send from HubSpot as usual.

5. Check your Turtl analytics

Once your recipients have started reading your content, they will appear under Known Readers within Turtl analytics. You will also see the following which indicates how the known reader was established.

Important note: Sending out test emails via Hubspot or using the Hubspot Email Preview tool can result in 'no email / unknown' reader data appearing within Turtl analytics. This can be removed if required, just contact the support team via live chat or email support@turtl.co.
