Key Takeaways

Listen, I want you to stop for a moment and think about who the absolute biggest brand names are in your industry. The top two or three.

For me, at Agorapulse, that’s easily the major social networks themselves… Meta, LinkedIn, Twitter, and so on.

Got a couple of your own in mind? Cool.

Now think about what it might look like, and how it would benefit your business, if you were able to partner with some of those large brands.

And recall what we talked about way back in episode one, that partnership is about more than being a client and vendor. It’s about working together to create something new and innovative, like the marketing partnerships I’m working on right now with Meta and Linkedin.

So how do you go about getting the attention of one of those large brands and develop that kind of partnership?

That’s exactly what our guest today, George Thomas, is going to talk to us about.

George B. Thomas has been in sales and marketing for more than three decades, but in 2012, something changed. He started using HubSpot as a CRM and soon began partnering with them and working to help other brands improve their own sales, marketing and processes by leveraging HubSpot, one of the major brands in the MarTech space and host of Inbound, a huge event in Boston that attracts thousands of marketers..

George loves to truly come alongside other brands as a catalyst for growth, so in addition to being an expert in inbound marketing and sales, email and content marketing, and all-things-HubSpot, George brings a wealth of experience in partnerships and relationship building.

And he’s been a friend of mine for years…
