If you've been considering investing in HubSpot's CRM for your business, you know it's a comprehensive, robust tool. If your company can implement those tools effectively, you'll definitely start to see results in the length of your sales cycle and your company's growth.
However, the HubSpot platform offers so many tools, and you might be worried that your team won't be able to learn and implement them correctly and timely. It’s a realistic concern – but that’s where a HubSpot Solutions Partner comes in.
If you know what HubSpot is, you might know a little about their HubSpot Solutions Partner Program. It's a program offered to marketing agencies who already use the HubSpot platform and are dedicated to the inbound marketing methodology.
Marketing agencies apply to be a partner, and once HubSpot accepts them, they're given additional sales and marketing training, direct account managers through HubSpot, and a collection of other HubSpot tools they can use to provide better service to their clients.
Each HubSpot Solutions Partner is ranked according to HubSpot's tier system. The higher a company's tier, the better its services and support team, and the more clients they have helped use HubSpot successfully.
To answer your question – yes. As you might already know, there are tons of different types of marketing agencies. If they use the HubSpot software and approach marketing with an inbound mindset, an agency can apply to be a HubSpot Solutions Partner. Therefore, all kinds of HubSpot Solutions Partner are available to you.
Some agencies, like Evenbound, are full-service agencies that handle inbound marketing, web design, email marketing, content marketing, paid search, social media advertising, and more.
Other agencies might focus on one specific area — they could just design websites, offer inbound marketing consulting, specialize in sales support, etc.
If you're considering choosing a HubSpot Solutions Partner, it's important to remember we're not all the same. You'll have to do a little digging and maybe even a bit of interviewing to find the right agency that fits your culture and your company's overall goals.
HubSpot has more than 2,500 partner agencies in their HubSpot Solutions Directory, so there are many options to choose from. First, you should understand precisely what a HubSpot Solutions Partner can do for you and how their services can benefit your company.
Let's talk about that. Here are 4 major benefits that come from hiring a HubSpot Solutions Partner:
This one might seem obvious, but it's important. As a HubSpot Solutions Partner, your marketing agency can help your team better use the HubSpot CRM and all of its bundled tools.
If you don't have HubSpot, a partner agency will help you onboard, teach your team about the tools, and walk each team member through the CRM step-by-step.
If your team is already using HubSpot, a partner agency will help you figure out how to optimize it. They'll look at your website analytics, talk to your sales and marketing teams, and implement new strategies to help you perform better across the entire platform.
The HubSpot CRM is an impressive tool, but it takes some work to master. Partnering with a HubSpot Solutions Partner minimizes that work and gives you a HubSpot coach who's on-call 24/7. When you're having trouble figuring out a new tool or are troubleshooting an issue in the system, your support team can fix the problem.
The benefit of using HubSpot in the first place is its catalog of impressive, powerful tools. The HubSpot CRM offers advanced analytics tracking and reporting, email tracking, blog publishing, social media publishing, and more. With all these tools and the metrics that go with them, your marketing agency can offer you a much better overall marketing service.
Hiring a HubSpot Solutions Partner is a two-for-one deal. You get the expertise of a marketing agency — their web design support, unique inbound marketing strategies, the tools they use to deliver quality inbound marketing service, and their team of experts. Plus, you benefit from all the additional tools and organization that the HubSpot CRM offers.
When you work with a full-service HubSpot Solutions Partner, you get more than just a bunch of cool tools and top-tier marketing advice. You also get sales support, which isn't something you see from every marketing agency out there.
Inbound marketing methodology relies on the idea that for the best possible results for overall company growth, your sales and marketing teams have to be aligned. So, the HubSpot CRM offers a vast suite of sales tools that work hand-in-hand with marketing tools to help you get both teams on the same page, and working towards your company's growth goals.
The HubSpot Partner Program offers partners training in both sales and marketing. That means your HubSpot Solutions Partner (if you choose a full-service agency) is trained to coach your marketing team and your sales team, too. They’ll provide tools, content offers, and training that help your sales team shorten the overall sales cycle and close on more qualified leads.
When you work with a high-qaulity Hubspot Solutions Partner, like Evenbound, you’ll experience the benefit of experienced development support on CMS. Whether you’re just getting started and using free tools, or optimizing your existing HubSpot CMS website, you’ll appreciate this feature.
A CMS is the platform that enables you to build, edit, and host your website. The best CMS is one that integrates seamlessly with your CRM, allowing you to generate leads and turn those leads into customers all in one place.
The HubSpot CMS Hub is a cloud-based content management system (CMS) for your website. With these tools, both marketers and developers alike have the tools they need to create amazing websites focused on the customer experience.
