Content Marketing Agency SmartBug Media Helps AnswerDash Increase Leads 60% Within 60 Days With HubSpot COS Website Design

Case Study Details Contextual Answer Service's Marketing Growth After Turning to SmartBug Media to Develop a Best Practices Inbound Marketing Website

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 -- SmartBug Media, a leading inbound marketing agency helping businesses increase leads, revenue and brand loyalty, today announced the results of its website design and development partnership with AnswerDash, the world's leading website contextual answer service. The case study is available at http://www.smartbugmedia.com/case-studies/hubspot-cos-website-design-case-study-answerdash.

In an effort to upgrade its marketing profile, AnswerDash, which provides companies with contextually relevant Q&A solutions on their websites, sought to optimize its own Web presence and generate new leads. The upstart turned to SmartBug Media to design and develop a new website on HubSpot's Content Optimization System (COS) to invigorate its inbound marketing strategy. The decision yielded some extraordinary results. In the 60 days after migrating to the new COS, AnswerDash experienced:

  • A 10 percent increase in Web traffic
  • A 60 percent month-over-month increase in lead growth -- a number that Matt Blythe, AnswerDash's Director of Marketing, "expects to climb as we fully leverage our new website"
  • An astonishing 55 percent increase in social media presence

"Like many early-stage companies, the focus is on proving the concept and acquiring key, high-profile customers. As a result, the website often suffers. AnswerDash was no different," says Blythe. "We knew we wanted to move to HubSpot's COS, but we didn't have the expertise to implement it. So it made sense to use one of HubSpot's top partners to help us. We'd definitely recommend SmartBug Media. They took a basic concept, layered inbound marketing best practices on it, and brought it to life. Everybody -- salespeople, marketers, customers, and prospects -- have been impressed."

"AnswerDash is solving a very pressing problem in an elegant and affordable way," said Ryan Malone, founder and CEO of SmartBug Media. "We're happy we could deliver a HubSpot COS website that contributed such immediate results."
