We are delighted to have been recognised by leading global inbound software company HubSpot, with two significant accolades.
We have been ranked number 5 in the world for 2018, beating leading agencies from Australia, Singapore, China and Japan, finishing 2018 as the highest ranked APAC partner in the world. In addition the agency, which is only 18 months old, has become the first New Zealand agency to be awarded ‘Diamond Partner’ status by HubSpot.
Managing Director and Founder Ryan Watkins says that these accolades are recognition of Hype & Dexter’s unique approach to delivering results across sales, marketing and customer service automation.
“Being the first Diamond Partner here in New Zealand is something that we set as a long-term goal when we started the business, so to do it in such a short time is incredible, while ranking 5th out of all 2,700 partners globally is testament to the remarkable rate of growth we’ve enjoyed in the past year.”
Part of achieving this growth is the form of agile that has been implemented across our delivery teams, says Co-Founder Romi Dexter:
“We’ve been able to increase quantity while still improving quality across our project and retainer services. And while our client base scaling 5x, the size of the team has only had to grow 2x.”
This approach has already gained international attention and Romi was invited to Boston last September to talk to a global audience about Hype & Dexter’s application of agile methodology alongside automation.
Marketing automation is a rapidly growing industry, with global spending estimated to reach $25bn USD by 2023. Around half of New Zealand companies already use some form of marketing automation – with this only set to increase.
APAC Managing Director for HubSpot, Shahid Nizami, says that what the Hype & Dexter team have achieved in the last 18 months is nothing short of remarkable.
“We’re honoured that they chose to join the HubSpot Partner Program to help supercharge the agency’s growth. I’m incredibly proud to see them flying the flag for New Zealand, and setting the standard globally for how agencies can help their clients grow better with the inbound methodology and the HubSpot Growth Platform.”
