The independent authority on search vendors, topseos.com, released the February 2010 rankings of the best local search agencies announcing 15miles as the number three firm. Thousands of local search agencies were put through an extensive evaluation process by an experienced research team in order to find the best firm. Once the evaluations were complete, the research team compiled the data and released its rankings.
15miles, a New York-based firm, began in 2005 as a part of TMP Directional Marketing (TMPDM) LLC. In 2009, it was formally launched as an independent subsidiary. 15miles, which was built on the tried-and-true search solutions that have made its parent company so successful, applies TMPDM's proven local expertise to the interactive space of online and mobile marketing. Much work takes place behind the scenes to provide clients with a simplified process and detailed performance reporting.
Gregg Stewart, president of 15miles, stated, "All of our media plans and strategies start with research. Applying a proprietary media-usage-to-cost-allocation model, we look holistically at multiple online and offline advertising mediums to give our agency the ability to right size our clients' campaigns and efficiently utilize client spend. This is especially important in these times when budgets are tight and marketers are searching for dollars to fund new or expanded marketing initiatives."

According to its recent study completed in partnership with comScore, "Eighty-three percent of online searchers of local business information follow up offline via in-store visits, phone calls or purchases."
