As agencies grow, attract customers and deliver successful results for their clients, their partner status is upgraded on HubSpot's Agency Partner Tiers Programme. The tiers range from Silver right through to the elite Diamond Partners. These aren't just labels randomly handed out either, as those agencies that are higher up the tiers unlock unique resources to fuel growth even more. But what is a Diamond HubSpot Partner? Let's find out.
This programme is designed by HubSpot to acknowledge the agency partners that have executed inbound services to the highest standards possible. Each tier offers agencies within respective benefits such as increased support, and early access to the latest tools and features.
The Partner Tiers are:
Before we get into the details, we don't usually prefer to use the terms "clients" and "customers" for the people who choose to work with us, we prefer to think of them as partners. But for easy distinguishing, "partners" in this blog will refer to HubSpot partner agencies and people who work with said agencies, i.e. you, will be "clients" and "customers".
Diamond Agency Partners receive exclusive access to an annual joint planning call with a HubSpot Partner Marketer. On this call, the Diamond agency and HubSpot talk about the year ahead for the agency and their clients. This ensures the agency is 100 percent attuned to the latest inbound marketing theory and strategy... and their client are too.
Because HubSpot knows their Diamond agency partners are already helping to shape and lead the inbound marketing movement, the agency is invited to publish on the industry leading HubSpot blog.
On this call, the Diamond agency partner and HubSpot set a publishing schedule so the agency's blogs go live regularly on HubSpot and also outline any needs the agency might have for upcoming, important events, making it a truly unique perk.
The end result for an agency's clients is that not only is a leading inbound marketing agency shaping their marketing strategy, but it's directly influenced by HubSpot themselves.
Blogging is already such an important tool, so the opportunity to write blogs for HubSpot is a massive opportunity for Diamond agencies and something other agencies should aspire to achieve. So, another big perk is that Diamond agency partners can take advantage of HubSpot's popular blog and reach an even wider audience.
Each Diamond agency works with their HubSpot Partner Marketer where they think of suitable topics, write and then publish a minimum of one blog post per year on HubSpot's blog. This just highlights how much trust goes into these agencies - that HubSpot are comfortable with Diamond Partners being trusted enough to provide content on this level.
Diamond agencies are able to progress even further by taking advantage of the HubSpot Agency Growth Fund. This is done by making capital available which can be used for hiring sales, marketing and even management professionals.
So, the more resources HubSpot makes available to these agencies, the better equipped the agencies are to help you and your business grow and be in an even better position to surpass your goals and expectations.
Diamond agencies can have their events taken to the next level by requesting HubSpot Senior Marketers, Directors, VPs and the C-level Executive Team to appear at the events. By having these influencers at such events, it means you can attend the events your Diamond agency hosts and hear from or meet inbound influencers first-hand.
Along with this, agencies in this tier have been provided with brilliant guidelines on which HubSpotters could be the perfect fit to appear at events, speak and provide unique insights to make them an even bigger success. If you're attending these events, you're going to witness experts from the very top in action and providing knowledge that is unattainable at other events.
Excitement is always looming when it's INBOUND season in Boston, because of all the festivities, speakers, learning and networking going on. Diamond agencies have a bonus compared to other tiers as they're provided with six all-access tickets.
This not only makes it the perfect opportunity for Diamond Partners to bring an extra team member or two along and experience this even in order to help their client's marketing success.
Each year, Diamond Partners are gathered alongside Gold and Platinum agencies to learn, network and celebrate success in an invitation-only event. Along with learning about advanced inbound content to help clients down the line with these new, updated methods, Diamond Partners are able to get a sneak peek of upcoming HubSpot products.
This puts them one step ahead of others by getting familiar with newer products first, meaning there's less of a learning curve once these products are live.
Working alongside a Diamond Partner means you're working an agency that helps HubSpot perfect their products and make it seamless for everyone to use without any faults. By signing up to this commitment, it shows that the Diamond agency is willing to take time out to help HubSpot smooth out the edges and help shape the future of products which clients like yourself will also use.
Diamond Partners can act as influencers for other marketers by contributing marketing offers and templates to HubSpot's Marketing Resource Library after being reviewed. This is a great way to generate leads by hosting content in the go-to resource centre for marketers worldwide.
When you see an agency's work here, you know that it's undergone strict quality control. If it's considered good enough to be associated with HubSpot, then the same quality can be implemented with client work to assist with achieving goals and business growth.
Content produced by Diamond and tiered agencies can receive an extra social push by having the opportunity to submit tweets to HubSpot's social submission form. HubSpot then collates the best messages which stand out and queue them up for promotion across the cumulative social reach of other HubSpot users and agency partners which really sets these agencies apart from the rest.
Businesses need help with marketing and an agency is the first option that's considered. Here, Diamond Partners along with some other tiered partners can create a listing in HubSpot's Partner Directory to get found much easier by prospective customers. This means you can easily find the agency that's right for you.
The directory allows agencies to showcase their areas of expertise, their industry, location, the HubSpot certifications they have and past client reviews, and allow themselves to be found by a suitable working partner.
This is highly useful for clients, as you're able to filter through to find the proven agencies that consistently deliver the best results and find the perfect one for you and your needs.
When you're on your search to find the right HubSpot partner for you, finding a Diamond Partner ensures that you're working alongside one that's not only trusted by HubSpot to be in this position, but also have a track record of delivering successful results.
