Shawn Persons

Former VP of Marketing, AEBetancourt

1 Bold Step was an excellent partner for us throughout our implementation. Our team was entirely new to HubSpot and was tasked with implementing sales & marketing hub on a tight timeline. 1 Bold Step was highly organized and helped us build a comprehensive roadmap for our implementation, customizing the process for our needs along the way. The team (Adam & Spencer) were extremely knowledgeable and responsive throughout the process helping us design the system around our business. We are very grateful we had the opportunity to work with 1 Bold Step in our HubSpot implementation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What positions will you fractionally fill for our team?

We can fill a wide range of positions like CMO, Director of Marketing, Digital Marketing Manager, Content Creator, SEO Specialist, Sales Consultant, Sales Manager, Systems Admin, and HubSpot Admin.

What is your average ROI for your clients?

For first-year clients, we expect to see a 2.5x return on marketing investment. For second and third-year clients, that average should grow between 4-6x your marketing spend.

What will the first 30 days of work look like?

In the first 30 days, we will spend a significant amount of time aligning and implementing marketing processes and systems to make sure that we don’t run into major system errors throughout the year. We will also set up reporting dashboards, and get started on your highest-priority items. You should expect to meet with us 2-4 times the first month and biweekly following.

What if we already have a strategic marketing plan?

Although we urge all of our clients to build a strategic plan with us, we are happy to get involved with what you already have and help you execute. We are an extension of your organization. Not a replacement.

But we strongly recommend having a plan that your team has helped put together. A team that gets to weigh in will also buy into the plan. And when our strategic marketing plans are aligned with the overall business strategy, making marketing efforts more strategic too.

Can I hire you just to create content?

You sure can! We develop and execute editorial calendars and content for clients across a range of industries and markets.

However, we believe everything we do has to be aligned with your organization’s strategic goals. We can create content, but we’ll recommend time up front to make sure that you’ve optimized your SEO so that the content hits the mark

How many hours a month will I need you?

Our time with your organization will be based on your company’s goals, the marketing plan, and the time needed to accomplish it. Bigger goals will take more time, but we can always dial marketing efforts up and down to fit your needs.
