Welcome to the Inbound Marketing Self-Assessment tool!

Our online IMA Assessment calculator is a Standardized Questionnaire shared across all Hubspot Partner Marketing Agencies. The assessment looks at your current marketing and sales practices and provides you with a Grade based on a 0 to 100% scale of how well you are doing. Your Grade is a diagnostic indicator of the marketing and sales areas you need to improve based on Hubspot recommended Best Practices.

As someone with an interest in improving your digital marketing and online sales performance or as someone interested in benchmarking yourself against your competitors, we wanted to introduce you to our new online calculator. The IMA Assessment calculator is a Self-Help Do-It-Yourself inbound marketing analysis and sales effectiveness grading tool that you take by yourself by answering a few simple "Yes" or "No" questions.

The IMA Calculator

Our previous calculator, the Website Traffic and Leads Needed Marketing Calculator, looks at your historical performance and tells you how many website Visits, Contacts and Customers you need from your website marketing and sales efforts in order to hit your Revenue Target.

The IMA Calculator works well out-of-the-box with your Hubspot Dashboard Metrics or your wordpress Google Analytics.

Using the results from the IMA Calculator in conjunction with your historical conversion rates (Leads, Contacts and Customer close rates) as well as your content performance rates (i.e. average blog and landing page read rates) the IMA calculator results helps you plan out your forward looking content plan and strategy.

The IMA Calculator is a great goal setting and content planning tool.

About the Inbound Marketing Assessment

Welcome to the Inbound Marketing Self-Assessment tool!

Our Inbound Marketing Assessment test will ask you a series of 49 standardized "yes" or "no" questions that are shared across all Hubspot Agency Partners who conduct inbound marketing assessments. You can use the score as a base line of how well you are currently performing, as a planning input, or to measure how well your marketing improves over time.

The total maximum score possible is 100% meaning you are doing everything right per Hubspot best practices.

The 49 questions are broken into 4 separate sections with each section covering a different part of the 4-step inbound marketing methodology of:

  • Attract
  • Convert
  • Close 
  • Delight 

as shown in the graphic above and on each page of the questionnaire.

Normally this assessment is conducted one-on-one with a Hubspot Partner Consultant; however, not everyone is able to schedule the time required to sit with a live person so we decided to use the Hubspot platform to automate the IMA Assessment questionnaire as a do-it-yourself, self-help tool so that you can proceed at your own pace.

Our company is the only Marketing Agency who has fully automated this standardized assessment and put it online.

Feel free to comeback and run our tools as often as you like to see how well your marketing and sales efforts improve over time.
