Who we are:

digital marketing lego

After many years as marketing consultants, we discovered that most companies find Marketing Automation systems like a big box of lego. Lots of features and tools, but someone has to put it all together. But where to start? And how to find the time?

That's where FunnelBud's core idea was born: You don't just get FunnelBud. You also get a team of FunnelBud marketing and CRM experts who's sole mission is to help you use FunnelBud to grow your sales.

After trying Hubspot, Salesforce and many other tools, we chose SharpSpring because of its all-in-one and easy to use feature set, and their fantastic business model that allows us to include all our agency services for you at no cost. SharpSpring were recently recognized as one of America's 500 fastest growing companies, and is loved by its users.

How is FunnelBud's approach different?

Some only provide software and support. Others want you to outsource your marketing entirely. We are instead your strategic partner and extended arm, helping you maximize the impact of our technology.

You know your customers, products and services like nobody else. That's why nobody can run your marketing as well as you can. But experts can provide valuable methodologies and help you implement technology.

That's why we believe in a partnership where you handle the marketing, while we help you with strategy and implementations.

We do this by offering FunnelBud incl. your very own project manager who helps you via recurring online meetings, acts as your marketing strategy consultant, and takes care of system implementations and technology.

We become your very own Marketing Technology department.

Below is a full comparison of what you get from us vs. others:

Traditional system vendors

Traditional marketing agencies

FunnelBud

Offer

Only system, maybe with email support or one-time onboarding.

Everything - incl. content and strategy - they run your marketing.

FunnelBud, including all the help you need - we handle the setups and enable you run your marketing.

Philosolhy

"We deliver the best system and answer technical questions - the rest is up to you."

“We are your outsourced marketing department.”

“Your marketing is best done by you - we provide all the tools, help and expertise you need to do it.”

Approach

They provide the software and answer technical questions about how it works. But you're on your own on implementations and customisations.

They take care of your marketing entirely. Your marketing depends fully on them. The process is often standardized since they can never know your business as well as you do.

We help you improve the way you do your marketing. You own your process, and use us as strategic and technical resources. Process is fully customized to your business.

Price

You pay for the license and get a system which you need to learn and implement. Often with log contracts - because vendors know how long time it takes to get the hang of it.

You pay separately for the license and services. Help is often paid by the hour. The vendor is incentivised to make you dependent on their help for any request.

You pay for license. Services are included. We don't tie you into long contracts. Instead, our incentive is to make FunnelBud part of your daily routine, for mutual benefit and long-term partnership.

Reporting

You create the reports you need. If you want help, try trial-and-error or hire external (and expensive!) consultants.

You get standardized reports that justify the hours spent and recommend next period's actions.

We create the reporting structure you need so you can pull any report you need. We help you make decisions during weekly meetings.
