I'm Markelle Sargent Harden, founder, and leader of Classy Inbound. I've worked with hundreds of brands as a digital marketing partner/consultant, a director, a strategist, and an account manager since 2006.

I understand the business goals of marketing teams and how they support business owners and leaders, sales teams, and brand reputation and growth.

Education & Experience

College: University of Pittsburgh, a long, long time ago. 

First Marketing Job: RE/MAX Elite, Chandler, Arizona

Sink or Swim Marketing Experience: In 2007, I was working as a freelance marketer for real estate agents and real estate brokerages. As Google grew, sites like Zillow, Trulia and pushed all of my agent and brokerage listings down in the search results. Combined with the housing crash of 2008, it was sink or swim time. I've been working to help companies gain business through search engines ever since, and I love it.

  • 2017 - COMPANY START

    Classy Inbound is formed to provide content marketing support services to agencies, B2B marketing teams, and companies who wish to generate leads online.
  • 2018 - HUBSPOT

    In 2018, Markelle joined a HubSpot Platinum Partner Agency.

    Full disclosure: Before working with a HubSpot partner, she didn't think HubSpot was that special. Fast forward to 2020 (hello pandemic), and it was obvious that marketing without HubSpot, or a similar tool, is a recipe for "spreadsheet and cold call" marketing or "throw ads at the internet and see what sticks" marketing.

    If you're unsure about the value between CRM tools, automation, and aligning your sales and marketing teams, we'll be happy to show you the magic.


    Companies that are managing sales leads with Excel spreadsheets are on their way to extinction, and digital transformation becomes a necessary part of every business as they struggle to deal with the pandemic economy. Classy Inbound helps dozens of companies and marketing teams succeed.

  • 2022 - TODAY

    Business owners, marketing teams, and agency leaders can finally RELAX and take a breather. Now that Classy Inbound is helping them manage their content marketing pipelines, improve conversions, and drive revenue through lead generation, a vacation without interruption is possible.
