Doylestown, Pennsylvania: Doylestown web design and inbound marketing agency IQnection has been awarded Platinum Certified Agency Partner status by HubSpot, one of the world’s leading marketing software developers.

IQnection has achieved this status by incorporating inbound marketing strategies to attract, engage, and delight their customers. “Our agency has grown dramatically over the past few years, specifically within our inbound marketing department, and we needed a proven software solution that would allow us to continue to deliver high level of results for our customers,” says Greg Cawood, Co-Founder of IQnection. “We are so excited to achieve our HubSpot Platinum Agency Partner Certification. We see this award not as a pat on the back, but rather as an acknowledgement that inbound marketing is the most effective marketing strategy for B2B companies to utilize if they want to grow their lead funnels.”
