Last month, HubSpot officially unveiled version one of the HubSpot Value Added Reseller Program and the beta version of the HubSpot Service Marketplace.
Since its launch, hundreds of HubSpot customers have hired HubSpot certified partners to help them with their inbound marketing through the Service Marketplace.
But how has the Service Marketplace benefited our certified partners?
Recently several partners blogged about their thoughts on this question.
Linda Sevier from Pagetender Web Services blogged:
"As with any business during hard times, there are many factors that contribute to success or failure. A couple of factors that contributed greatly to the success of my small business are embracing inbound marketing with HubSpot and becoming a member of HubSpot's Service Network. While many of my peers struggled during 2009 and early 2010, I was getting qualified leads from HubSpot and generating leads of my own using inbound marketing."
In "HubSpot Services Network Brings Hope to Inbound Marketers", the founder of Pull Not Push, Dan Ronken, wrote:
"HubSpot created this transparent scoring system to remove the guesswork for potential customers of HubSpot Partners. It's based on relevant metrics that determine whether or not the partner is doing a good job for their clients. It's simply a numerical score from 1-100 (100 being best).
Scoring a 93, PullnotPush has been most fortunate to have gained many new clients, and we are extremely grateful for the opportunity as a small marketing agency to continue to serve and help HubSpot clients manifest the promises of inbound marketing. Thank you HubSpot Services!"
And finally, Stacie Chalmers of Inbound Marketing Solutions wrote:
"If you provide a marketing service and would like to add ‘inbound marketing' strategies to your list of services, HubSpot is your answer. This is a unique opportunity to stay up to date with the latest in web site, search engine and social media marketing. The bonus is, once you're certified you'll receive qualified leads and prospects who are looking and needing your professional marketing service. Since the directory started, I've received leads on a regular basis, all of which have converted into paying customers. It's a win/win/win situation for everyone involved."
