HubSpot Diamond Agency Continues Strategic Hiring to Support Client Growth

IRVINE, CA (Marketwired – September 17, 2015) – SmartBug Media today announced the hiring of Bethany Jurns as a Senior Inbound Marketing Consultant. SmartBug is an Irvine-based HubSpot Diamond inbound marketing agency that helps businesses modernize their approach to marketing and sales in order to increase website traffic, capture higher quality leads and enhance brand value.

Jurns comes to SmartBug from Oracle and will play a lead role in executing inbound and content marketing strategies to help a portfolio of clients exceed their sales and marketing goals. As a North America Marketing Campaign Manager, ERP and Applications, for software giant Oracle, Jurns developed and implemented inbound and outbound strategic marketing plans.

“Bethany brings a proven track record of marketing expertise to SmartBug,” says Ryan Malone, Founder and CEO of SmartBug Media. “Her experience and creativity will be a valuable asset to our clients. We are excited to have her on board.”

Previous to her successful stint at Oracle, Jurns spent three years as a marketing specialist and manager at Advantix Solutions Group, a business management consulting firm. She is also Hubspot- and Inbound-certified.

“I’m really excited to be joining an agency where I can stretch myself professionally while making full use of my experience in creative problem-solving and inbound marketing strategy,” said Jurns. “SmartBug combines a creative approach to business with a solid, data-driven strategy that meshes really well with my philosophy of marketing and client service.”

Jurns brings an English and creative writing educational background to SmartBug. Her interests include nonfiction writing, sculpting, theater, and costume design.
