What does winning an award mean?

Winning an Impact Award means recognition from HubSpot for your ability to deliver amazing client work using the inbound methodology. All winners and honorable mentions are displayed in our impact award showcase page and awards are displayed in your agency’s profile inside the HubSpot Partner Directory. Grand prize winners receive recognition on stage at our annual INBOUND event.  We’re always looking for ways to showcase your work. New for 2017,  all Impact Awards winner's work will be included in a "Best of" compilation ebook, which will be distributed through HubSpot's channels, and available for you to distribute as well.

Winning HubSpot’s Impact Award was a big deal for Quintain Marketing. When evaluating agencies, many clients think bigger is better, but this award proves that small agencies like ours can do world class work that produces real results for clients. We are incredibly honored to have our campaign recognized by HubSpot and excited about how this will position us to compete with industry leaders and grow our customer base.
