Digital Marketing Agencies Make Strong Showing On Tech 200 List Of Fastest-Growing Private U.S. Businesses

tech200badgeDigital marketing companies are well represented on this year’s Tech 200, an annual list of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the U.S.

This is the third year that Lead411 has put together the list, which is based on self-reported revenue growth over a three-year period; in this case, the period from 2009 to 2011, inclusive. Here are some of the online marketing companies that I spotted just inside the top 40.

3. HasOffers
5. RocketFuel
11. Slingshot SEO
14. Marketo
15. RepEquity
17. TubeMogul
19. ePropertySites
20. ActivEngage
28. HubSpot
36. Zillow

Further down the list are notable online marketing companies like SEOmoz, BrightWave Marketing, iGoDigital and too many others to mention. The Tech 200 ranks companies not based on overall revenue, but on sales growth. Companies must submit their data to Lead411 and there’s no cost to apply for consideration on the annual list.

In addition to the main Top 200 list, Lead411 breaks down the included companies by state, employee count and other factors. There’s also a survey of the included companies that addresses things like which marketing tactics have the best ROI (answer: SEO and tradeshows) and which tactics take up the most of their marketing budgets (answer: tradeshows and online ads).

    Thanks for the coverage. :) Not just the marketing agencies, but specifically the marketing automation/inbound software companies seem to really be cranking.

    In this modern era, digital marketing or social media marketing is the latest marketing techniques, which many companies are trying to adopt. It is also a proven fact that such companies are doing quite good with the help of proper digital marketing ideas. Since the demand of such companies has gone up in recent times, this has also increased the number of such companies all over the globe and not just in the US.

    This list from Lead411 proves the fact that digital marketing has indeed become very important for any company wishing to grow with time. I am sure in the years to come, this list will grow even further and more and more digital marketing companies will find their places in this list.

    I thank the writer for presenting this list to us online. A real eye opener I must add.

    We’re really lucky I believe to still be in a time when organically (or seemingly) produced mentions still have traction. I do worry though that consumers will fast become jaded to this approach and wary. What then for organic?
