We didn’t think it could get any better at Sagefrog this time last year, but 2018 proved us wrong. For our bustling B2B agency, 2018 was a productive twelve months of priceless memories with team members new and old and countless moments of marketing genius.
We’re excited to see where 2019 leads us as a team, but before that, we want to take a minute to reflect on some of the biggest accomplishments of the year and give thanks to the skilled marketers at our company who have helped us achieve them.
See what this past year was all about for Sagefrog by reviewing our top five accomplishments of 2018.
1. Became a HubSpot Platinum Agency Partner
This May, Sagefrog earned the title of Platinum HubSpot Agency Partner to become one of only five agencies in Pennsylvania and New Jersey to attain this status and the only Platinum B2B marketing agency in the region.
This title was given to companies that proved a high level of success achieved for their clients through the inbound marketing methodology and using HubSpot’s software. Moving from Gold to Platinum marked our strong growth in the ongoing use of these tools and marketing approaches.
All Sagefrog team members hold the HubSpot Inbound Certification, but continue to receive additional certifications from HubSpot, including in business writing and conversational marketing.
And speaking of “partner,” we also took our Sagefrog Lab efforts to new heights to identify, test and perfect new platforms and technologies that will best serve our clients by adding greater efficiencies, scalability, transparency and results to our B2B brand building and integrated marketing approach. Just some of these new partnerships we formed include Databox, Sigstr and Drift.
2. Completed Our Certification as an EOS® Company
Sagefrog implemented the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS®) in 2016 and has continued to commit to all things EOS to align our team and solidify our short- and long-term direction. This year we conducted a full Organizational CheckupTM to review the status of our EOS efforts, and to complete our certification as an official EOS company. We’re proud to announce: we passed with flying colors. With the minimum requirement for EOS certification at 80%, Sagefrog earned a score of 92%!
After some brainstorming, we identified the small areas we still need to work on to reach a score of 100% and we’ll continue to improve the performance of our company in 2019.
3. Named Top Digital, Branding & Web Design Agency
We were humbled to receive numerous exciting marketing awards and accolades this year, earning recognition from Philadelphia Business Journal, HubSpot, Databox and Clutch. Our team was especially proud to appear on Philadelphia Business Journal’s Best Places to Work list. Here’s what our co-founders said about this award:
“We’re extremely proud to foster the type of culture that prioritizes the satisfaction of our team, and we’re excited to know that our employees recognize and value the culture, too. Being named to the Best Places to Work list, and as the only B2B marketing agency in our category, is humbling, and we will work hard to maintain this top status in the years to come.”
– Mark Schmukler
“Gaining recognition along with some of our clients on this year’s Best Places to Work list shows the passion we have for creating a rewarding and fulfilling environment for our team. We take seriously the strategies and tools we put in place to meet the needs of our team and grow together as experts in our field.” – Suzanne Morris
And here’s a list of the other amazing accolades we’ve earned:

4. Gave Back to Our Community Together as a Team
The Sagefrog office is home to many fun activities and celebrations throughout the years, from birthday lunches to holiday parties and Lunch n’ Learns, but one get-together that really stood out was our time volunteering for an organization in our local community. From their new home at North Penn Commons, Manna on Main Street works to end hunger in the North Penn region by “providing food, fulfilling social service and education needs, and conducting community outreach.”
In two teams of volunteers eager to give back, Sagefrog spent time taking orders, prepping and serving food and tidying up the dinner space for Manna on Main Street and their clients. It was a fun and fulfilling group volunteer experience that brought us closer together and closer to the communities we serve.
