Irvine-Based Inbound Marketing Agency One of Six Worldwide to Receive Prestigious Status

IRVINE, CA (Marketwired – September 17, 2015) - HubSpot, a leading inbound marketing and sales software company, has named Irvine-based inbound marketing agency, SmartBug Media, one of its six worldwide Diamond Agency Partners. The six Diamond Agency Partners lead over 3,500 global HubSpot partner agencies in setting the highest standards for inbound marketing and web design services.      

“The HubSpot Partner Tier program is designed to acknowledge those Agency Partners who have not only brought the inbound message to the most clients, but also those who executed inbound marketing services to the highest standards,” said HubSpot CEO Brian Halligan. “We congratulate SmartBug on this achievement and look forward to seeing their continued success.”

The 3,500+ HubSpot agencies are split into tiers using a combination of metrics, looking at monthly recurring revenue (MRR) acquired and managed, retention, software engagement, and actual inbound marketing success.

“Becoming a HubSpot Diamond Partner has been our goal for awhile and I couldn’t be more proud of our team and all their hard work,” said SmartBug Founder & CEO, Ryan Malone. “We’re excited about our partnership with HubSpot. This is an important milestone in communicating our value as we help clients capture higher quality leads and enhance their own brand value.”

SmartBug also recently won two 2015 Impact Awards at HubSpot’s annual INBOUND Conference in Boston last week. The agency was recognized for nine total awards, winning two categories, placing as a finalist in two more categories, and showing third place in another category. It won the HubSpot award for Best New Client Onboarding for its best in-class inbound marketing and web design services. It also won the HubSpot People’s Choice Award where it delivered an ROI of 3,558% over 6 months for life sciences company Conversant Bio.

With these awards, SmartBug Media further enhances its global reputation as a top inbound marketing agency that helps its clients achieve their marketing goals, grow traffic, prove ROI and provide top-notch customer experiences.
