Denver Agency Earns Top 6 Spot in Colorado

DENVER, August 15, 2019Local marketing agency, HIVE Digital Strategy, became one of only six agencies in Colorado to reach the Platinum level within HubSpot’s Partner Agency program.

“Five years ago when we began our HubSpot journey, honestly I didn’t think we could get to the Platinum level. It was so far away, there are so few that reach that level, and the agencies at that level were in a whole different league. Through a ton of hard work, our amazing team was able to reach one of our biggest goals and I couldn’t be more excited,” exclaimed Dustin Brackett, CEO and Founder of HIVE

HubSpot, an international inbound marketing software company, began in 2005 with a revolutionary way to use digital marketing strategies, coupled with their CRM software, to attract customers rather than chasing after them. As a digital marketing agency Brackett saw the client success potential in partnering with HubSpot to expand digital service capabilities near the inception of his agency. 

“Becoming a HubSpot Partner Agency completely transformed our agency. It changed the way we viewed marketing, how we serviced clients, and it completely changed the way that we ran our agency. We went through a complete rebrand as we dove in feet first with HubSpot and it was the best decision that we could have ever made. Our team adopted the tool right away and they have been instrumental in getting us to this elite level,” Brackett said about partnering with HubSpot. After signing on as a partner agency in 2015, it took 26 months for HIVE to reach Silver Partner status, another 13 months until they earned Gold Partner status with HubSpot, and most recently only 10 months to earn the coveted Platinum Partner level. HIVE is now one of only six Colorado agencies with this elite partner status and has been named a top Denver Digital Agency in 2018 and 2019.

HubSpot partner tiers are determined by a combination of clients who have purchased HubSpot, active clients utilizing the HubSpot tools, and retention of those clients through long-term success. HubSpot uses these levels to reward agencies that have shared the inbound methodologies as well as delivered insightful, top-notch services making their own clients successful. 

“We have a great team, but we wouldn’t be here as a Platinum HubSpot Partner Agency without our fantastic clients who allow us to partner with them to reach their marketing and sales goals month after month,” said Brackett.

 

HIVE Digital Strategy is a full-service inbound and digital marketing agency in Denver, Colorado that has earned Platinum Partner status with HubSpot as well as being named a Top Digital Agency two years running. HIVE partners with B2B, B2C, and Nonprofit clients to improve their digital strategy, execution, lead generation, and customer acquisition processes through digital marketing, digital design, marketing automation, and public relations initiatives.

While engaging agencies for a web redesign, HIVE Digital Strategy, a Denver inbound and digital marketing agency, share their Growth Driven Design philosophy for website redesign based on user data.

Recognized as one of the top digital marketing agencies in Denver, the agency has four sessions included in the panel picker that is accepting votes through May 20, 2019.

“Many startups begin with technical experts and a lean staff,” explains HIVE Founder and CEO Dustin Brackett. “Marketing is typically not the first priority in the team’s knowledge base. As a former startup ourselves, we know how steep the learning curve is and want to give back to the startup community with valuable content that a team can implement immediately.” The Denver-based agency submitted four speaking sessions to Denver Startup Week recently and all four sessions are now up for public voting consideration on the Denver Startup Week website.

Though HIVE’s speaker sessions run the gamut of sales, PR, and digital marketing topics, they submitted all talks in the Growth track of Denver Startup Week for maximum inclusivity.

Whether attendees have a marketing or sales background or not, our sessions will empower all members of a startup team with action items they can implement immediately for their company,” stated Yvonne Hall, Senior Account Manager at HIVE Digital Strategy.

The HIVE team is slated to provide tips on:

  • How videos can be used in the sales process
  • How Public Relations can increase website visits
  • How to rethink the sales funnel and plan for a new buyers journey with co-host Jacob Carlson from HubSpot
  • How to better speak to your ideal buyer with niche personas

“Sharing information and educating our community is part of who we are,” said Michael Thebeau, Business Development Manager, about why the digital agency submitted session ideas to Denver Startup Week.

Digital Agency Adds Service to Increase Clients’ Organic SEO

DENVER, April 26, 2019Local marketing agency, HIVE Digital Strategy, announced earlier this month the addition a new service for clients to increase local brand exposure as well as organic search engine optimization (SEO).

“It’s a well-known tactic to send press releases to local media to help increase earned media for a company or product,” explained Dustin Brackett, CEO and Founder of HIVE. “However, many aren’t realizing or taking advantage of the digital components a press release can offer for organic search engine optimization for their website.”

With their newest hire, HIVE gained over 20 years of integrated marketing experience including public relations. Yvonne Hall, Senior Account Manager for HIVE Digital Strategy, began pitching various public relations initiatives that could boost client exposure.

“We had been learning of Inbound PR through our relationship with HubSpot, but did not have the expertise on staff to execute those tactics,” said Brackett. Hall’s PR tactics earned one local fitness technology client a segment on KDVR’s morning show in her first month on the job and the agency realized the opportunity they now had access to.

“Positive local media exposure is always beneficial for a company,” Hall explained, “But coupling that immediate exposure with long term digital exposure is really where a company gets the most bang for their buck.” Social media helped increase ROW ViGOR’s exposure to a new audience and now the video of their appearance and press releases placed on their website help with backlinking and on page SEO in their digital mix. These types of SEO tactics have been in place at HIVE for years and is part of the Inbound Marketing initiatives that they recommend for clients.

“Whether our clients use the HubSpot software suite or not, inbound marketing tactics can be put in place to increase long term, organic effects and pull prospects to their website to learn more instead of only pushing advertising at them. Public relations fits well with this inbound methodology and will be a huge win for our clients even if those media pitches and press releases don’t garner immediate exposure in a publication,” Brackett said about the long-term aspects of the public relations services they now offer at HIVE.

As a Gold HubSpot Partner Agency, HIVE utilizes inbound methods for their clients daily and for the second year, HIVE has been included in the Top Digital Agency listing for the Denver area. Now they can provide this new service that HubSpot calls Inbound PR — the marriage of their inbound marketing methodologies with traditional public relations.

“Inbound PR is like a 1-2 marketing punch, offering clients the immediate aspects of traditional public relations and potential earned media placements as well as the long-term digital benefits including search engine optimization,” concluded Brackett.

HIVE Digital Strategy is a full-service Digital Inbound Marketing Agency in Denver, Colorado that has earned Gold partner status with HubSpot as well as being named a Top Digital Agency two years running. HIVE partners with B2B, B2C, and Nonprofit clients to improve their digital strategy, execution, lead generation, and customer acquisition processes through digital marketing, digital design, marketing automation, and public relations initiatives.
