What is the Solent HUG?
The Solent HUG is a community of professionals dedicated to inspiring and educating best practice in inbound marketing and sales. Solent HUG’s mission is to be a support group for anyone setting out on their inbound journey or anyone who needs just that bit of tailwind to accelerate their growth. Solent HUG is organised by two leading HubSpot Gold Partner agencies in Hampshire – bandv, based in Southampton and LexisClick, based in Bournemouth. Our two agencies joined forces to bring together HubSpot users, business owners and inbound enthusiasts from the region and give them a chance to exchange ideas on how to achieve business growth through inbound marketing and sales.
Who are the Solent HUG leaders?
Stephen Bavister, Director, Lexis Click Online Marketing

Hubspot was the answer. Since becoming a Hubspot Partner Agency in 2014 the team of inbound specialists at LexisClick have successfully used Hubspot’s tools across a wide range of customer accounts to increase the results and ROI from their inbound strategies.
