In March 2016, Inbound Mantra became a Gold HubSpot Certified Partner.

Exactly a year back, Inbound Mantra turned silver. And this is what I had written.

Silver Partner

In one of the many emails that I receive from HubSpot; last week, there was one which congratulated all the newly tiered HubSpot partners.

And amongst all the leading inbound marketing companies that had achieved hubspot gold partners and platinum status, there was one little entry down the list that caught my attention.

Inbound Mantra was now the first HubSpot India partner to reach the Silver Tier status.

It has taken work and time.

A Gold HubSpot Certified Partner

The HubSpot certified partner tiers are established and accepted enthusiastically by the HubSpot Partner Community. The tiers are a function of managed and sold MRR (monthly recurring revenue).

  • Managed MRR - The sum of the MRR of all HubSpot accounts managed by a HubSpot Agency.
  • Sold MRR - The sum of the MRR of all HubSpot accounts sold by a HubSpot Partner in a period of 12 months.

To be gold, a HubSpot Partner has to achieve the following conditions,

  • Managed MRR - $ 6000
  • Sold MRR - $ 2100

HubSpot continuously updates the threshold MRRs, making it challenging for partners just to maintain their tiers.For more information on the tiers,  kindly click here.

What do the tiers mean for HubSpot prospects?

The tiers establish a baseline when prospects are evaluating multiple partners for HubSpot services.Are the tiers enough?Obviously no.The tiers are only a baseline. If you are a prospective HubSpot customer, I recommend that you follow a diligent process. Because a software implementation initiative will bring with it, many change management issues.Proactive hubspot partners would be glad to help you with a checklist that will help you do a diligence not just for purchasing the HubSpot Software but also for inbound marketing services.

Inbound Mantra is very excited and is looking to add value to inbound marketing in its journey to the next milestone - Platinum Gold Partners.Join in !
