Leeds Digital Agency Ascensor Achieves Hubspot Partner Status

Digital agency Ascensor has achieved HubSpot Partner status, adding further to its digital marketing credentials.

HubSpot is a leading global provider of automated marketing tools. Their inbound marketing and sales platform helps companies to attract visitors, convert leads and close sales. They bring together a variety of functionalities, such as web analytics, search engine optimisation and website content management.

Managing Director Andrew Firth says: “Ascensor are a client and expert user of the full suite of HubSpot tools including Sales Pro, Marketing and Service Desk. Our Partner Status means that we are now certified as a licensed provider of HubSpot Solutions to our clients, and able to provide expert support for HubSpot’s sales, service and marketing automation tools.”

Andrew explains that Ascensor’s key role as a digital marketing agency is to help clients of all sizes create and build a commanding online presence. The increasing sophistication of customers’ needs, and online technology, means that larger clients look to Ascensor for the delivery of bespoke software, complex layers of technical integration and data science.

Andrew says: “Our role is to provide the expertise and insight for firms to succeed online. Alongside our comprehensive services, HubSpot provide a suite of technical tools which enable our clients to integrate their online marketing with all other aspects of their sales and customer engagement activities.”

He adds: “Being a partner allows Ascensor to showcase our complex integrations with other HubSpot partners and users. This software is so powerful, and its open API gives us the flexibility to integrate it with other third-party solutions, and of course our own software.

He adds: “Ascensor’s achievement of HubSpot Partner status is a logical step and reinforces our reputation as a successful, growing, digital agency.”

Established in 2007, Ascensor has grown rapidly in recent years, achieving turnover growth of more than 50% in 2020 and 2019. Their target for 2021 is £3.0M.

The firm recently announced their third M&A deal in a year with the acquisition of Blue Mantis assets, securing Blue Mantis’ clients, and the recruitment of six Blue Mantis employees. The acquisition of Blue Mantis brings the total headcount at Ascensor to 36 employees.

It also recently won Best Large Digital Agency of the Year in the Northern Digital Awards and achieved ISO27001 information security accreditation.
