A bit about me
I’m Vaughn, CMS consultant and Director here at BabelQuest.
I started my business journey almost 40 years ago when I finished a Business Studies degree in Sheffield. I had always had an interest in marketing throughout the course, and this led to me doing Corporate B2B Marketing in the IT and Telecoms sector. From here, I started my own marketing agency, which led to me discovering Hubspot.
I then worked within a company called Toast Inbound, the 13th HubSpot partner in the UK, and there were 5 of us. I knew Becky and Eric through the HubSpot world, and we decided we were stronger together, so we merged in 2018 and haven’t looked back since.
Clients I've worked with
About my role
I find within BabelQuest I have 2 main roles which can vary from day to day.
On one side of my job I lead prospect conversations where we;
- Chat about the statistic on their current website
- Discuss their goals for a new website, where they want the projects to go
- Discuss the benefits of HubSpot CMS and how this will benefit their business
The other side of my job is when we build the websites I manage a lot of the SEO side of it. So this can entail;
- Keyword research
- On-Page SEO
- SEO Audits
- Technical SEO
- And link building
Each job varies as the clients I work with have different goals and completely different businesses.
Reviews for my work
Working with BabelQuest; in particular Vaughn and Jasmine, we have deployed HubSpot CMS, CRM and Marketing, to deliver a whole new web experience, campaigns, outbound communications and in the process grown our database ten-fold. Would readily recommend.

I had a very good experience with BabelQuest. For our brand Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks, we searched for a new agency to build our new website for all local business units. Quite some work, but with the help from BabelQuest it was a very nice ride. Their projectmanagement is excellent. Their patience and our trust in them was very important to me. We are now investigating to let them also help us with all online activities.

BabelQuest helped us design a new website and migrate from Squarespace to HubSpot CMS in just over 4 months, and the results are Amazing. We provided BabelQuest and their sister agency our new brand guidelines which they transformed into a beautiful, converting and technically sound site. I found BabelQuest really easy to work with, they're proactive, open to feedback and challenge the status quo. The project management of the whole project was...

What I love about BabelQuest
What I like most about working here at BabelQuest is exactly why I’m an agency person and not corporate. I really enjoy connecting with companies and learning about our clients, their needs and finding out how we can help improve their business.
While doing all this, I enjoy helping my colleagues to develop their skills and share my knowledge with them and their knowledge with me. It’s a great environment for people to learn and grow.
