It's been an exciting time for awards at HubSpot lately! Last Thursday, Chief Technology Officer and founder Dharmesh Shah accepted his award as a Mass High Tech All-Star (more on that to come!), and HubSpot is a finalist for a number of awards which will be announced in the coming weeks.
This is particularly exciting news for HubSpot, as it is one of the first awards won for the HubSpot blog. Prior to the W³ win, the Internet Marketing Blog has been honored as a 2008 Semmy Awards nominee and has consistently ranked in the top 100 marketing blogs on the AdAge Power 150 (Currently, the blog ranks as #32!).
The W³ Awards honors creative excellence on the Web and recognizes the creative and marketing professionals behind award-winning sites, videos and marketing programs. The 2009 awards competition received nearly 3,000 entries from top companies and agencies worldwide.
Previously, Twitter Grader has been honored in the 2009 Summit Marketing Effectiveness Awards, the 2009 American Business Awards, the 2009 Webby Awards and the 2008 Mashup Awards. Twitter Grader is also currently a finalist in the running for the 2009 Pixel Awards (winners to be announced in November).
I am also pleased to announce that Inbound Marketing University (IMU), HubSpot's Internet marketing retraining program, has also received an honorable mention in the marketing/promotion campaign/corporate branding category of the 2009 MarCom Awards. This is IMU's first award. For more about IMU please visit http://inboundmarketing.com/university.
