by on August 30, 2012

Posted by Peter Caputa on Tue, Jul 10, 2012 @ 02:56 PM

As Director of HubSpot's Partner Program for Agencies, I have the pleasure of working with lots of great marketing agencies.

In the past six months, one relatively new partner has done extremely well. Based on their  marketing and sales success in the last few months, I asked Bob Ruffolo , CEO of IMPACT Branding & Design , if I could interview him and share some of his secrets to success. In the past 6 months, his team has accomplished the following feats:

  1. Grown traffic 7x to 14,000 visits/month.
  2. Grown leads 9x to 450 leads/month.
  3. Switched the majority of his clients from one time project clients to recurring revenue retainer clients.
  4. Acquired 6 new retainer clients from inbound leads.
