Our First Ten YearsPosted by Jeff Scholes on Apr 13, 2016
This past January, Scholes Marketing celebrated an important milestone – ten years in business. Thanks to our fantastic team, and thanks especially to our loyal customers. We’re proud and humbled that you’ve chosen Scholes Marketing for your marketing needs. We also know that choosing a marketing agency is often by word-of-mouth, and many of you have recommended us to friends and colleagues. We’re honored by your confidence in us – as well as the great reviews!
I’ve been reflecting on why we’ve been successful over the past decade. A few things stand out – some basic principles that are behind everything we do and really define what Scholes Marketing is about:
Great customer service.
Being ultra-responsive to our customers is what keeps us in business and keeps us growing. It’s about being proactive, and always looking for ways to give them a marketing engine better than anything they ever experienced. It’s about bringing the same passion to our mission that our customers bring to theirs.
Being great at what we do.
We may not be a huge agency, but we know our core strengths and bring world-class capabilities to the inbound marketing space. Whether it’s developing a total marketing strategy, building a great website, implementing a lead-generation campaign, deploying a new Salesforce instance, or simply to answer a question, customers know we’re a trusted resource they can call on when they need us.
Everyone who has joined our team over the years is still onboard. Very few agencies out there can say that. Scholes Marketing is a great place to work, but there’s a larger point: having a stable, dedicated team means better communication and collaboration, and stronger relationships with our customers. Thanks again guys!
Ahead of the curve.
One of the exciting things about inbound marketing is how this field is highly dynamic and constantly reinventing itself. With new forms of automation and marketing tools emerging constantly, our focus is on what this new technology can do for our clients.
Hubspot Platinum Partner!
Our ten-year anniversary coincides with some other exciting news. Scholes Marketing was recently named a HubSpot Platinum Partner, an elite rank that only a few dozen agencies worldwide have attained (out of thousands of certified HubSpot partners). Achieving platinum status parallels how HubSpot and Scholes Marketing have grown together. Back in 2009, we were one of the first 14 inaugural partners to be certified for the HubSpot inbound marketing system. Over the years we’ve continued to increase our HubSpot capabilities and experience, so our clients can build more leads and increase revenue.
In closing, we’re proud that we’ve been in business for ten years, and deeply grateful for the confidence our customers have shown in us. Over the years, we’ve had the good fortune to meet, work with and learn from many brilliant people. It’s been challenging, eye-opening and rewarding. Most of all, it’s been a tremendous amount of fun.
As we start our second decade, we’re very excited about what the future has in store. We look forward to working with you!
All the Best,
