HubSpot wanted to capture venture capitalists and startup founders — their preferred customers for their lesser-known HubSpot for Startups program. They created a series of Unicorn content to coincide with April 9, National Unicorn Day, but they couldn’t complete this high-priority, time-sensitive project due to bandwidth constraints. HubSpot reached out to Siege Media because they were looking for an agency that could deliver high-quality content for a one-off engagement.

Growth summary

Siege Media set out to craft an interactive, visual post than what was currently on the SERP to help HubSpot catapult above competitors. Using proprietary data from PitchBook, one of HubSpot’s partners, further helped HubSpot stand out from the crowd. To promote HubSpot for Startups, Siege added an additional feature unique to HubSpot’s post — a list of the marketing programs utilized by unicorns — connecting startups with HubSpot.

The post, The Comprehensive Unicorn Startup List for 2022, went live on National Unicorn Day with a Tweet from the HubSpot social media team and ranked on Position One two months later. To jump start outreach, the Siege Media team drafted 100 outreach email drafts for the HubStart team to send out. Siege also created a template for outreach to the partners mentioned in the post and provided the HubSpot team with outreach best practices.
