HubSpot is great, but it can be complex. The first problem is that you can’t purchase the system without an onboarding plan in place. The second issue is trying to select one.
You have two options: do it with HubSpot, or with a dedicated partner.
Now, when you decide to onboard with HubSpot when it's your first time using the software, you won’t be sure what to expect, and you won’t necessarily have on-hand support needed for implementation according to your business needs - leading to complications further down the line.
When you work with a HubSpot partner however, you get all the support you need to use HubSpot easily, and successfully.
WHY CHOOSE A HUBSPOT PARTNER?
You’re probably thinking, why not go with HubSpot themselves - isn't it easier?
Not particularly. While HubSpot are perfectly capable of getting you up and running with the software, they won’t offer you all the extras you’ll get with a partner. Here’s what you’ll get with us, compared to HubSpot’s offering.

That's why we've created a 10-week, remote onboarding programme - so businesses can get the most out of HubSpot right from the start.
“AG have integrated Hubspot's tools extremely well into our small sales & marketing team. Everything was setup expertly for us so all we have to do is stay on top of the leads that are generated, acting on the intelligence the platform provides. AG have taken on our full inbound marketing strategy and have been a pleasure to deal with from the outset. ”

Once we have your personas, it’s time to start mapping their buyer’s journey, and defining the stages of their lifecycle.
