More Good Inc.
Last year I was pleased and proud to write about our debut on the Inc. 500 list of America’s fastest growing companies. At that time I wrote that “Now our challenge, of course, is STAYING on the list, and hopefully upping our ranking next year!” Well, I am again please and proud to announce that we, in fact, stayed on the list. (You can read all the Inc. coverage here and see our press release about the ranking here.)
Unfortunately, we didn’t make the second part of our goal to up our rank. But, we did up our growth – our three-year revenue growth rate was 18% higher than last year. This is a testament to the hard work of our team (now 150 strong!) and wouldn’t be possible without the support of our many great clients (now 1,500 strong!).
Most importantly, we see no end in sight. In fact, 2008 promises to be an even bigger year for us as we poise for continued growth.
By the way, would you like to be part of a team that has now ranked as one of America’s fastest growing companies two years in a row? Check out our Careers page and join the team that is advancing email marketing, one company at a time.
