“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to help so many companies take advantage of inbound marketing techniques to get found online and grow their businesses,” said Brian Halligan, HubSpot CEO and co-founder. “It’s so important for companies to understand the impact the web can have on their businesses, so we’re very committed to nurturing our customers and helping them to succeed.”
HubSpot’s continued momentum is evidenced by:
500 new customers in the last 3 months
Over 4.5 million leads generated by customers using HubSpot since its founding in 2006
Almost 100 new HubSpot employees in 2010, plus a radical new strategy to recruit top talent for software engineer positions to continue growth in 2011
“HubSpot’s dedication to customers' inbound marketing success has completely transformed my professional career,” said Marcus Sheridan, two-time HubSpot customer and partner. “I started off knowing nothing about computers, and through the use of HubSpot’s software and training, I now own two very successful businesses, one of which is a web coaching company I launched using my newfound inbound marketing knowledge and expertise.”
To increase customer engagement, over the past few months we have also assembled a network of local HubSpot User Groups (HUGs), which give HubSpot users across the globe the opportunity to gather with other local customers for the purpose of networking, learning, and sharing information and advice about inbound marketing and the HubSpot software.
“There is power in numbers,” said Dale Berkebile of Brandwise, founder of the Dallas Local HubSpot User Group who recently published a video about the group’s value. “The Dallas HUG has been meeting for a year now, and in this time we have covered a wide range of topics and been able to help every member of the group be more active in HubSpot, and more importantly, more effective in their marketing efforts.”
With HubSpot’s continued growth on top of an existing base of 4,000 customers and tens of thousands of users, the time is now for businesses to start practicing inbound marketing and taking advantage of HubSpot and customer peer groups like the local HUGs.
Tonight, we will host a HUG Meetup and Show-and-Tell at our Cambridge headquarters for local customers and friends. CEO Brian Halligan will share upcoming developments and innovations to the HubSpot platform, which ensure customers have access to the best marketing tools to improve their inbound marketing efforts. His remarks will be livestreamed at 6 PM ET on the HUG website at http://hugs.hubspot.com.
