You can often find Hubbub Labs at startup networking events in Barcelona. Here are six of the most common questions people ask us.
1. How long have you been working at Hubbub Labs?
Hubbub Labs launched officially in July 2017. We’re a young agency, but George Chilton and Dan Shepherd have a lot of experience working in marketing, growth, public relations, content strategy and production, digital ads and media.
2. What did you do before this?
Dan was responsible for the success of one of Barcelona’s leading language academies and oversaw a 40% + growth over a 3 year period, serving over 1600 clients and managing more than 80 employees. He’s also a qualified teacher trainer, a forensic scientist and mountaineer.
George has contributed to Entrepreneur Magazine, The Next Web, Geektime and a number of other publications. He’s ghostwritten and edited articles and press releases for over a hundred of Silicon Valley startups with work appearing in TechCrunch, VentureBeat, InfoQ, Mashable, Variety and many others. He is also a regular volunteer judge at the Start-Up Chile Accelerator.
3. What makes you different from other marketing agencies?
We love startups and the energy and drive they have to build new things. It’s our mission to support and grow the Barcelona startup scene through content and digital marketing services.
Our team enjoys taking startups through the steps from strategy, content creation, promotion, analytics and testing.
When it comes down to working with you, we plug in to your company like another staff member, but without the hassle and additional cost of training and onboarding.
4. Do you work with idea-stage startups?
Hubbub Labs is setup to help you sell your product or service. While we’re always very happy to chat about your ideas and advise you, we prefer work with startups that are ready to talk content and digital strategy and that want to launch marketing campaigns. We are also here to help you populate or refresh your websites with copy.
5. Do you do service packages?
Absolutely, yes we do. But, rather than offering a one-size-fits all package, we talk to you, find out your business objectives and marketing needs. We then make a personalised content and digital marketing proposal.
We bill in advance on a monthly, 6-monthly or yearly basis, depending on your requirements and offer discounts for payment in advance.
6. Are you employing people right now?
We are currently working with freelance journalists and digital marketers based here in Barcelona, the UK, the United States, Australia, Colombia and Canada. We love to hear from new freelancers, so drop us a line if you are interested in working with us in the future.
