New Kiwi Growth Accelerator

INBOUND is Launching Their 2017 Growth Accelerator for High-Performing Companies

Auckland, New Zealand, October 18th, 2016:

INBOUND is launching a growth accelerator aimed at delivering 3x more leads and potential customers to 50, $1M+ revenue companies. We are also aiming to partner with 5 leading NZ companies to offer $300,000 in scholarships to 5 lucky New Zealand business owners.

Within the last three years, we’ve witnessed a momentous shift in the digital marketing and business growth space. We’ve seen American companies boom with success using marketing automation, end-to-end customer delight campaigns, retargeting and auto-segmentation, inbound marketing and in-depth CRM that integrates with marketing efforts to make sales a breeze.

We’ve also noticed that New Zealand is doing next to none of this. As a nation, we still boast a heavy reliance on offline marketing and there’s a huge lack of data behind any strategic marketing decisions.

Imagine you’re a sales, marketing or general director. You wake up, check online, and are immediately assaulted with a stream of prospects, all carefully segmented by your software into marketing and sales qualified leads. This is currently happening overseas with companies engaging in Inbound Marketing: the art of drawing potential customers towards you, as opposed to fighting for their attention. It’s going to be a game changer here in  New Zealand,  freeing up your time and allowing you to focus on the things that really matter.

As a country, we’re barely  tracking data, and we’re not implementing any cutting edge solutions that can easily fast track a company's success. With the realisation dawning on us that there’s so much potential to improve, we’ve decided to do things a little different. We’re turning our agency into a growth accelerator.

On November 7th, we’re opening 50 spots to companies around New Zealand, that if selected, will receive 12-months of explosive growth and implementation of the world's most powerful systems and technologies.

We’re also aiming to partner with 5 leading Kiwi companies to create $300,000 in scholarships for startups, small-businesses (under $1M in revenue), and larger businesses (over $1M in revenue).

Our secret sauce is the professional implementation of the world’s leading inbound marketing software, HubSpot, which boasts average client growth of 4.10 x more visitors a month and 3.00 x more leads a month within one year. You can check out the results you might expect from HubSpot’s software alone by using their online calculator ( and HubSpot is just one small piece of the puzzle.

We’re excited to be launching such a cutting edge program and we hope to wake New Zealand up once more as one of the world’s most innovative countries - I think we just need a little reminder of what we’re capable of.
