HubSpot User Group Summit (HUGS) VAR Day

September 15, 2011

PR 20/20 founder and chief executive officer, Paul Roetzer (@paulroetzer), will lead the breakfast session on building and growing an inbound marketing agency at the HubSpot User Group Summit (HUGS) 2011 VAR Day on Sept. 15, 2011 in Boston. 

In the session, Roetzer will discuss how PR 20/20 partnered with HubSpot to transform the PR agency into an inbound marketing success story, having grown from four employees to ten and increased revenue 467 percent in the past four years.

The presentation, based on his upcoming book, The Marketing Agency Blueprint (Wiley, December 2011), will include suggestions and lessons learned for agency professionals looking to build and sustain a successful firm. Key topic areas will include: services, pricing structure, technology, staffing, infrastructure, processes and purpose.

In addition to his solo talk, Roetzer will also participate on the panel, "Delivering Inbound Marketing ROI to Clients Efficiently," with Susan LaPlante-Dube (@SusanLDPMG), principal, Precision Marketing; Daniel Lynton (@dlynton), chief executive officer, LyntonWeb; and Wes Powell (@TMRDirect), president, TMR Direct.

Moderated by HubSpot inbound marketing consultant Patrick Shea (@mpatrickshea), the panel will discuss key tenets of profitable client engagements, and focus on the delivery of strategies that help agencies grow profitably by staying on time and under budget.
