About Managed Services

Managed Services is the practice of outsourcing business administration, operations and management to a third party, often whose sole or primary focus is the services being outsourced. While the term managed services most commonly refers specifically to managed IT services, our Pardot, HubSpot, Salesforce, and WordPress Managed Services go beyond the standard IT aspect to include other areas, such as process and systems development, marketing, and product training. All of our consultants are certified, with several years of Pardot/Salesforce and/or HubSpot along with marketing and web experience. We can even help you with campaign set up or management, or troubleshoot ones that aren’t performing as you’d like. We’ll work alongside your team, however big or small, to enable you to get the most out of your technology stack.

How do Managed Services work?

Managed Services from Optimal Business Consulting are designed for organizations interested in maintaining an ongoing competitive advantage through month-to-month access to award-winning consulting expertise, strategy and best practice guidance, plus hands-on administration and optimization, support and training.

There are no annual contracts required. Start with pay-as-you-go month-to-month Managed Services with our Flexible Hours Fractional Managed Services plan or opt for our Fixed Hours Managed Services Retainer.

We get together via web conference towards the start of each month to work out priorities and milestones. Throughout the month, our experts execute on agreed upon tasks and appraise you of the status. We also typically review task status and agree upon priorities throughout the month for the upcoming month as a ‘monthly sprint’. This provides a sort of Agile project management method of addressing current priorities so you are always getting what you need.

  • Submit tasks via our task tool (ClickUp) or our task web form to get them in the queue and on the roadmap for your project.
  • We're highly collaborative so we encourage you to follow up and collaborate via our task tool, Slack, or email.
  • Work directly with your assigned Salesforce Pardot certified or HubSpot Expert Client Success Manager throughout your engagement.
  • Schedule a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly web conference meeting or one-on-one working session with your Client Success Manager (up to 30 minute web conference per 10 hours of work).
  • We can work on practically any type of tasks you need, almost anything.
  • As you hit higher tiers of worked hours for a month, your effective hourly rate decreases...even from the first hour logged that month!
  • We'll pay you a referral fee as a reward for sending us clients.

All of our Managed Services plans include both Strategic & Tactical elements (actual work items determined each month).

For more details on what our Managed Service plans contain please contact us to learn more!

What platforms do you support?

Our Managed Services help you to keep getting the most out of your tech stack—Pardot, Salesforce, HubSpot, WordPress, ActiveCampaign and more. Pardot and HubSpot Managed Services are our core offerings, but we can also extend that to provide Salesforce CRM Sales Cloud Managed Services, and even WordPress Managed Services or other platforms by request. Combine management of more than one platform, i.e. Pardot AND Salesforce (an upcharge may apply).

If you wish to add Salesforce Managed Services to your plan, we’ll ascertain how much effort should go towards Pardot and/or HubSpot, and how much effort towards Salesforce. You determine the allocation; we agree together on the tasks.

Just get in touch and request additional platform support to start the discussion.

Why do I need Managed Services?

With Flexible Hours Fractional Managed Services you have as much expert help as you need, when you need it, with no long term contracts.

With Fixed Hours Managed Services Retainer your marketing expenses are more predictable because you select the number of hours needed each month, and you still get to choose what tasks and issues are tackled each month as your needs change.

Relying on in-house staff to learn and/or maintain technology systems can be a costly and time-consuming. Marketing’s workload is frequently heavy and often deadline driven, leaving them with little bandwidth to go beyond applying the basics to complex marketing automation systems such as Pardot.

Systems that are hurriedly set up can often result in common mistakes and more administrative time later on, often compounding problems and issues such as poorly constructed automation rules and processes, forms, and email templates. Managed Services take the pressure off your employees and keep them focused on their daily work.
