What is a HubSpot theme?
A theme, or website theme, includes a collection of templates, modules, global content and style settings that can be used to create a website. Think of the theme you choose as the first step in the process of building your website (in for example HubSpot their CMS). The theme forms the basis for the design of your website.
What is the difference between themes and templates?
Templates are a part of your theme. The theme you choose determines which templates you have access to. For example, there are website themes with only about 7 templates, but you also have themes with 20+ templates.
In short: with templates, you build your pages one by one. Your theme determines the overall design of your website.

Essential components of a service-based company website
Chances are you came to this blog because you are a service-based business. Also, we consider it likely that you are looking for a website theme specifically for service-based businesses like yours. Let us help you in your search.
A good first step is to determine what a good service-based website should meet. Of course, the specific requirements for this type of website are different from those for a B2C webshop such as an Amazon or a Bol.com.
In our opinion, a service-oriented website should include the following components:
- Social Proof in the form of reviews;
- Different pricing packages;
- Clear buttons to guide your visitors to the desired action;
- Show that you can be trusted as an organization (think of team photos, an address and a phone number).
On our own homepage you can see how we have incorporated some of the points mentioned above:
