How to Choose a HubSpot Partner

Hiring a HubSpot-certified agency is ideal for growth. However, there are thousands of partner agencies worldwide. How do you decide which one is best for you?

As cliché as it may seem, not all HubSpot agency partners are the same — which is advantageous for clients. While every HubSpot-certified partner adheres to the strictest guidelines, each one has different strengths and uses varying techniques.

Here are some factors to consider when choosing the ideal HubSpot Partner for you:


Don't presume we would recommend Hubspot partner agencies that are physically near you! Today’s technology has transformed the way agencies work. Don’t turn away an agency whose scope of work fits your requirements for location reasons.

Awards and Certifications

One of the fastest ways to learn about an agency’s strengths is by checking its distinctions. HubSpot recognizes top-performing partners through Impact Awards in many categories. You should determine which solutions you require and find a partner that can best serve your needs. For reference, here are some of our HubSpot certifications:

  • Content Marketing
  • HubSpot Solutions Partner
  • Inbound Marketing
  • Inbound Sales
  • Sales Hub Implementation
  • HubSpot Platinum Agency Partner Certification
  • Email Marketing Certification
  • Social Media Marketing Certification Course
  • Growth-Driven Design Agency Certification


No matter how great an agency appears on paper, always ask about case studies. Inbound marketing is a multifaceted discipline that works differently on varying company sizes and industries. We recommend picking an agency that has worked with a company similar to yours.

HubSpot User

Call us old-fashioned, but we would never hire a recommended HubSpot-certified agency if it doesn’t use the platform it sells. Some companies prefer using HubSpot for clients, while others developed hybrid WordPress / HubSpot websites. Some agencies have also combined all their efforts in one platform. Whichever agency you choose, make sure it has enough HubSpot Platform experience to propel your company toward growth.

Not sure how to tell what platform an agency uses? BuiltWith offers a great tool to see any website's tech stack. Here's Connection Model's Tech Stack. HubSpot should come up first.

Working Style

Due to the pandemic, some agencies nowadays perform all their tasks in-house. Conversely, other companies work remotely. We recommend picking organizations that work together, even if it's only for a few days a month. Such companies will have an easier time collaborating and developing strategies for new projects.


Advantages of Working with a HubSpot Partner

Working with a HubSpot-certified agency guarantees that you are working with a winning digital marketing team.

Working with a certified HubSpot partner in the Seattle Metro region has several advantages, including expertise assurance, trust, track record, access to inbound resources, built-in tracking, and massive savings.

Expertise Assurance

Many agencies want to achieve HubSpot Partner certification, but only the top organizations do. Agencies need to pass a series of evaluations and exhibit digital marketing expertise before becoming a partner. HubSpot classifies agencies into tiers using metrics like inbound marketing figures, revenues, retention rates, and software engagement.

A HubSpot-certified partner meets or even exceeds the criteria as one of the leading inbound experts worldwide.

Access to Inbound Resources

HubSpot teaches its partners how to use the latest inbound marketing technologies and resources available on the market. At Connection Model, we combine our expertise with the most advanced solutions to take our clients to new heights.

Built-In Tracking

HubSpot certified agencies are experts at creating trackable marketing campaigns over time. This feature ensures that marketing efforts produce maximum return on investment (ROI).

Massive Savings

Digital marketing is a multifaceted technique that aims to boost a company’s online presence. When you work with a Hubspot certified partner that decision-makers recommend, the company can advise you on different aspects of your digital marketing strategies.

Such agencies excel at website design, social media campaigns, website development, content creation, and more. They have team members who will work on all these features simultaneously, helping you save substantial amounts of time and money.

If you prefer using one platform for several inbound marketing initiatives, HubSpot is perfect for you. From lead nurturing to analytics, it can be your growth partner every step of the way.

Advantages of Inbound Marketing

Let’s face it - mass marketing techniques are a thing of the past. On average, Americans see thousands of ads per day, and they’ve become experts at ignoring disruptive marketing efforts.

Consumers nowadays prefer personalized strategies that allow them to choose what to buy, from which channel, and whether they want to see ads or not. This need gave rise to the popularity of inbound marketing.

Below are some of the advantages of using inbound marketing instead of traditional marketing methods:


Outbound campaigns typically only exist for limited time frames, but inbound ones don’t expire. Your social media posts, blogs, emails, and other collateral will be available for your audience to consume whenever they need more information about your company.

It’s advantageous to have material available for your campaigns. However, keep in mind that such strategies take time to work.


Apart from being ineffective in today’s modern world, mass marketing efforts are expensive and risky. They’re like shooting arrows in the dark and hoping to hit the ideal targets.

Instead of trying to attract massive audiences who might not be interested in your products or services, it’s better to have focused and calculated strategies. These methods enable businesses to save money and achieve higher ROI.

Higher Credibility

When you empower your ideal customers to find you organically, your brand comes across as a credible source of information for specific topics. For the modern consumer, this tactic is more reliable than a huge bus ad screaming, “Buy this now!”

Inbound marketing techniques, like creating valuable content and writing relevant blogs, attract leads without the risk of damaging brands.

Quality Leads

One of the best things about inbound marketing is that it attracts quality leads — individuals likely to purchase goods and services from a company. When it comes to digital marketing, it’s crucial to appeal to the right audiences. This distinction will allow you to minimize costs and maximize benefits.

Increased Visibility

Inbound marketing helps businesses get in front of their audiences in a natural, undisruptive way. To maximize your visibility, you should create content that can help you attract new audiences.

A Unique Approach to Guarantee Results

One of Connection Model’s distinguished characteristics is that we always start with research. We find out which strategies resonate well with our audiences before implementing them.

Subsequently, we create a customized strategy for our clients. We believe that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to digital marketing, making personalization a crucial part of success. Here are some of the business aspects we utilize high-level approaches on:

  • Market research - This step is essential for any campaign to succeed. We help clients use the latest technologies to quantify their market opportunity and visibility.

  • Author original content - We help clients develop videos, posts, and blogs that help them establish their authority on particular topics.

  • Improve engagements - We help clients provide their customers a chance to react, interact, and subscribe to their content. Engagements can drastically enhance a company’s link-building efforts.
  • Encourage social shares - Companies should make it easy for their audiences to share their remarkable content on social media pages. Doing so enables visitors to share your content with their family, friends, and peers.
