SPROUT Content, an inbound marketing firm founded in Pensacola, recently reached a milestone in achieving the Gold Level Agency Partner Certification from HubSpot.

That comes just six months after reaching Silver Level status last summer.

HubSpot’s tier structure is based on revenue, retention, engagement and client satisfaction. By reaching the Gold Level mark, SPROUT Content is being recognized for bringing the inbound message to the most clients as well as executing inbound marketing services to the highest standards. It also demonstrates a commitment by the content marketing agency to be innovative in the marketplace and stay up to date on industry happenings.

SPROUT Content reached the Silver Level in July 2014, so in a matter of months, the company which expanded from Pensacola to Denver, Colorado in 2013 has moved up the ranks again.

“Becoming a Gold partner is an amazing recognition we’ve worked really hard for. We started using HubSpot ourselves just three years ago, but that decision changed the course of our agency,” said SPROUT Content Co-founder Dechay Watts.

“Inbound marketing is ingrained in SPROUT Content’s collective mindset, and our team is committed to learning as the industry and the technology evolves,” said co-founder Debbie Williams. Last year, each member of the team completed a two-part HubSpot certification, including a comprehensive test on inbound marketing best practices, as well as a working knowledge of the inbound software.
