Set up lead tracking externally

There are a number of cases in which you might want to use an external system, such as a shopping cart or event registration system, to capture leads for your business. You can send those leads directly to your HubSpot account using a variety of methods.

You can create a form in HubSpot and then place the embed code for that form on an external page so that the HubSpot form works on a non-Hubspot page.
