Kuno Creative Earns Highest HubSpot Partner Honors as Diamond Level Agency

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwired - Mar 12, 2015) - A long-time platinum-level partner and three-time recipient of HubSpot's Happiest Clients Award, Kuno Creative is honored and elated to claim the top spot on HubSpot's Partner Tier program hierarchy.

HubSpot ranks agencies in tiers through a combination of measurements, including inbound marketing success, monthly recurring revenue (MRR), newly acquired clients, client retention and software usage. To qualify for the Tiers Program, agencies must also be both HubSpot and Partner Certified.

"Kuno has been successful in putting together an aligned process between sales and marketing that generates a high volume of inbound leads each month," says Kuno Creative CEO Chris Knipper. "We continue to distinguish ourselves by delivering high-quality content that's well received because it's targeted to specific personas. We'll continue our growth by attracting more customers who share this same vision and want a more targeted approach."

Over the past five years, as many traditional agencies have seen their revenue sharply decline, the Kuno Creative team has leveraged inbound marketing methodologies to grow its staff by more than 250 percent and grow revenue by 350 percent. The company has worked to streamline processes and better position itself as an industry leader, with a goal of obtaining better qualified sales leads for website and inbound services. Kuno Creative attributes its rapid growth and continued successes to the following three drivers:

  • Industry Focused Marketing. The agency focuses content marketing efforts toward buyer personas in one of the company's three primary verticals: software as a service (SaaS), specialty manufacturing and healthcare.
  • Unique Culture. Kuno Creative prides itself on providing a fun, supportive and innovative environment poised to launch both clients and employees to success.
  • Continued Education. The agency ensures all team members stay ahead of marketing trends and practices by providing and encouraging new learning opportunities.

"While we continue to grow Kuno Creative's revenues, our focus for 2015 is to improve profitability," says Kuno Creative EVP John McTigue. "We have worked hard on defining all of our processes, which helps improve customer satisfaction while reducing manpower costs. We feel that this effort, along with our ability to attract best-fit customers, is improving our bottom line."

As a Diamond Level Partner, Kuno Creative is positioned to better serve its clients, present and future. The agency looks forward to taking on larger accounts, with more demanding goals, all while continuing to exceed client expectations and achieving lasting results.
