FIRST THINGS FIRST, have you started your template migration set up with hubspot?

First and foremost, initiate the migration setup with the HubSpot team by proceeding with 'Start Setup' since the HubSpot Migration team takes 2-4 weeks to complete the template migration. Once template migration is complete, HubDo can then proceed with the blog migration. Make sure to start this at the earliest stage.
