Posted by Darren Leishman

Press Realease - Johannesburg, South Africa – Spitfire Inbound announced that it has been named a winner in both the Grow Better: Marketing Enablement and the Website Design category in HubSpot’s Q2 2019 Impact Awards. HubSpot, a leading growth platform, uses the award to recognise members of its Agency Partner Program who go above and beyond to help their customers grow better.

Through ongoing improvements and strategic realignment, great results were achieved for both Rentokil Initial and Interwaste. Interwaste increased their leads by 139% through their website design and growth driven design approach to their website.  This was achieved through partnering with agencies XFacta and Pixel.  Rentokil Initial showed fantastic growth through using inbound marketing and HubSpot – this increased their marketing ROI by 671% in one year.

At HubSpot, we rely on our partners to help us spread the inbound message, said Katie Ng-Mak, VP of global partner strategy and operations at HubSpot. Spitfire Inbound is one such agency that has shown unwavering commitment to helping businesses grow better. On behalf of everyone at HubSpot, I congratulate Spitfire Inbound and the other Impact Award winners on these exciting achievements.

The Impact Awards are given on a quarterly basis in five categories:

  • Grow Better: Sales Enablement
  • Grow Better: Marketing Enablement
  • Grow Better: Service Enablement
  • Integrations Innovation
  • Website Design

Strategic director Alison Leishman says “We are really excited by being awarded not only one but two Impact Awards this quarter.  This is testament to not only the great team at Spitfire Inbound but also to the relationships that they have with their clients, Rentokil-Initial and Interwaste, which has led to the results they have achieved together.”

“Winning these awards is very gratifying. Our first priority is to deliver great results for our clients, the Impact awards are very focused on results and therefore align with both our clients and our priorities,” Says Darren Leishman, MD of Spitfire Inbound. “I would like to thank Interwaste and Rentokil Initial for allowing us to feature their work and for the ongoing support they afford us. The awards are as a result of our partnership with clients who are prepared to challenge convention. I am very proud of how our team did the amazing work they do every day.”

Congratulations to the Spitfire Inbound team.  You have supported our Initial business throughout its inbound marketing journey and we are grateful for the continuous growth and unbelievable ROI numbers that this project has afforded us.  With our strategy, your continued guidance and Hubspot’s capability, I am excited to see what the future holds”, Lémay Rogers, Marketing Manager: Sub Saharan Africa, Rentokil Initial

We have seen such positive feedback from our business community on the redesign of our website. It’s helped to showcase us as one of the leaders of integrated waste management solutions and build our brand in the markets in which we operate. We have seen more people contacting us from the experience of looking at our website and this is very exciting and proving the value of our investment in the digital journey,“ Kate Stubbs, Director Business Development and Marketing at Interwaste.

In addition to the quarterly awards, HubSpot also gives four annual awards that recognise partner achievements across the entire year: Global Partner of the Year, Partner of the Year, Rookie of the Year, and Customer First. All winners are recognised in the Impact Awards Hall of Fame
