You may have read Taylor’s post on how adWhite started out as a “full-service” advertising agency and transitioned into an Inbound Marketing Agency. But let’s take a quick look at the agency landscape overall.

Here are a few FAQs answered to help you understand what we eat, sleep and breathe day in and day out. As a Platinum HubSpot Agency, we are drinking the inbound marketing Kool-Aid, and so are many of our clients.
adWhite started as a "full-service" advertising agency. I had worked for two ad agencies and two direct-response agencies in Dallas. I liked the idea of running an advertising agency. Initially we focused on business-to-business clients with a particular focus on the maintenance side of commercial aviation, because that was where I personally had the most expertise. We developed logos and brochures and websites for companies that sold their products or services to commercial airlines. We then started helping them with trade shows (not only the design pieces but also the production and logistics of the trade shows). It wasn't the most fun work, but it got my foot in the door with several clients because they didn't have a marketing team, and they didn't want their sales team coordinating trade shows.

Founded by Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah in 2006, HubSpot is a developer and marketer of software products for inbound marketing and sales. It’s focus is on helping companies reach their customers by providing meaningful, timely, and relevant content. The company started off as a world-class marketing technology that provided tools for social media marketing, content management, web analytics and search engine optimization. However, as the company grew, it now also provides sales enablement tools as well as brand new roll out of “Service Hub” in 2018 that allowed the integration of customer service, sales, and marketing. Isn’t that cool?
