St. Cloud, MN (PRWEB) October 02, 2017
Last week HubSpot announced Leighton Interactive as the grand prize winner of the 2017 Website Design Impact Award in North America for their work with Chicago-based custom home builder, BrightLeaf Homes.
Each year HubSpot agency partners from around the globe submit their best work for a chance to win an award in sales enablement, integrations innovation, inbound growth story, website design, and graphic design. For each category, a grand prize is awarded to an international agency and an agency located in North America.
In March 2017, Leighton Interactive crafted an impact blog they submitted for consideration in the website design category. Their submission explained how the agency used research and design to create a website that addressed the client's challenges and generated huge ROI.
"The website before the redesign did not convey our brand very well. Now, I can just focus on listening and asking them [leads] questions...because they've already hit the website before we've talked," said Rick Thompson from BrightLeaf Homes. "I have better informed leads coming to us in the first place, and that has been making the sales process easier. I'm looking at closing 6 sales in the past four weeks which is unprecedented in our company."
Leighton Interactive was notified in April 2017 that their submission won them a first round "Website Design Impact Award" that six other finalists also received. This initial award entered the agency into the grand prize competition with the other finalists.
On September 25th, 2017, Leighton Interactive was announced the grand prize winner during HubSpot's Partner Day at INBOUND in Boston. As the grand prize winner, Leighton Interactive was highlighted at the INBOUND award ceremony, featured in printed materials and press coverage, and will appear on HubSpot's partner directory profile.

"Our team dug deep to uncover a tailored marketing strategy for BrightLeaf Homes. We wanted to create a lead generation engine for them, and the website was an important piece of that," said Jen Keul, Vice President of Leighton Interactive. "To be recognized as the best website in the North American region by HubSpot means a great deal to Leighton Interactive."
This is Leighton Interactive's second Grand Prize Impact Award from Hubspot. The inbound marketing agency also received an Inbound Growth Story Impact Award in 2015 for their work with wholesale distributor, Bernick's.
