Our formula is pretty simple: build great software that enables profitable relationships between our company, our advertisers, and our publishers, and the rest will fall into place.

Inc. Magazine has recognized BuySellAds, the easiest self-serve advertising platform on the web, as the 248th fastest growing, privately held company in the United States. Ranked 11th in Boston overall and 35th in the Advertising and Marketing category, in just its first year of eligibility, BuySellAds has bucked the belief that raising millions of venture capital dollars is requisite to any startup’s exponential growth. As a result, BuySellAds’ maintains that a company’s growth comes by virtue of being great – with or without large-scale investments.

In 2008, BuySellAds was a “nights and weekends” project, run by founder Todd Garland out of his bedroom. After experiencing rapid, organic growth, from $0 to $550,753 that year alone, Garland quickly built the company team that catapulted BuySellAds to the top tier of fastest growing advertising technology companies in the country. Posting 2011 revenue at $8.5 Million, BuySellAds has demonstrated an impressive 1,447% growth rate over the past three years, while working with a relatively low company headcount of twelve.

“Early on, our greatest advantage was that our competitors didn’t take us seriously. We don’t fit the typical profile of a rapidly growing company. We’re bootstrapped, having raised exactly $0 in funding. We’re all young and relatively inexperienced, and we’re essentially all remote, with just two of our twelve employees working out of Boston. We’ve never had a lot of hype,” says Garland.

BuySellAds’ culture has been about staying focused on users and flying under the radar - until now. After earning its spot on this year’s Inc500 list, Garland says that, for BuySellAds, “The cat is out of the bag.”

“We’re working with great publishers and great advertisers, we have a new product coming out this fall (our best work to date), and we are well positioned for continued growth. Our formula is pretty simple: build great software that enables profitable relationships between our company, our advertisers, and our publishers, and the rest will fall into place.”
