and we are very proud to be working with so many of them. Their placement on this list is a testament to their hard work in driving performance.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 17, 2010
Search Engine Marketing Firm iProspect today announced that it is ranked as the number one search engine marketing agency in the 2010 edition of Internet Retailer's Top 500 Guide as a result of being cited as the agency of record for 22 of the e-Tailers on the list. In addition, Range Online Media, the Dallas-Fort Worth based agency acquired by iProspect in September 2008, was listed as the search agency of record for 13 of the e-Tailers. Together, the two agencies dominate the search vendor category with a total of 35 top-ranked retail clients with more than $25.9 billion in annual retail sales.
iProspect holds the number one ranking for agencies on the list, while Range Online Media moved up from the 14th agency on the list in 2009 to the sixth agency on the list this year due to an increase of top retail clients. Among the 13 innovative brands that noted Range Online Media as their search agency on the list were Bass Pro Shops, The Container Store, Estee Lauder, Neiman Marcus, and Timberland.
Published by Internet Retailer, the Top 500 Guide is the undisputed source of information on the 500 largest retail websites in the U.S and Canada. Now in its seventh year of publication, the Guide contains the latest competitive data on the leaders of web-based retailing, and lists their vendors in 21 different categories, including search engine marketing. iProspect beat out 91 other companies to earn the number one spot.
"The Top 500 e-Tailers on this list are the best of the best," said Robert Murray, CEO, iProspect, "and we are very proud to be working with so many of them. Their placement on this list is a testament to their hard work in driving performance." Murray continued, "Besides working to be smarter and faster than their competitors, they also look at their marketing holistically. In other words, they work to integrate search with all their marketing channels -- display, email, TV, radio, print -- to get the biggest bang for their marketing buck and drive the best results possible. Retailers who want to step-up their game could learn a lot from the players on this list."
An important industry resource, the Top 500 Guide provides profiles on each of the 500 biggest Web merchants in North America, including corporate strategies and merchandising and marketing tactics. This year's edition also includes sections on social networking, site search features and functions, and mobile commerce.
"The vast number of retail clients we have represented on the list shows not just the strength of the retail industry to weather down economic cycles, but the competitive advantage for retailers who stay agile, innovative, and work with strategic partners who can manage their campaigns holistically," said Misty Locke, President, Range Online Media, and Chief Strategy Officer, iProspect. "We don't strictly act as a paid search or SEO agency for these top retailers, but as a strategic partner with an eye for taking all of their performance marketing initiatives to the next level."
