We're in the business of helping business owners growth their businesses and we practice what we preach.

Inc. magazine announced today that Blue Corona, a leading SEO company headquartered in Gaithersburg, Maryland, ranked number 174 on its 31st annual Inc. 500, an exclusive list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The ranking makes Blue Corona, which provides inbound marketing services, the fastest-growing, privately-held advertising and marketing firm in the Maryland, District of Columbia, and Virginia region. The Inc. 500 represents one of the most important segments of the U.S. economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Many other companies have gained early exposure as members of the list – from Microsoft and Oracle to Under Armour and Intuit, as well as social network, Facebook.

Collectively, this year’s list employs more than 46,000 people and has combined annual revenues of $15.8 billion dollars. 77% of the companies on the list were founded with personal savings and Blue Corona is no exception. Founded in early 2008 by Ben Landers and Bob Perini, Blue Corona provides analytics and internet marketing services such as pay per click (PPC) advertising, search engine optimization (SEO), lead generation, and conversion rate optimization to companies ranging from local contractors to international manufacturers.

In a difficult economy, Blue Corona has seen demand for its services soar as more companies have begun to demand accountability from their advertising and marketing budgets and seek more leads from the web. Blue Corona’s three-year growth rate exceeds 1,900 percent.

“We’re in the business of helping business owners grow their businesses and we practice what we preach,” said President and CEO, Ben Landers. “When the economy first turned down in 2008, interest in our services really exploded because our services are all about using data to supplement the business owner’s intuition in helping to eliminate wasted advertising dollars. We also help our clients generate leads and sales from the web – typically at a fraction of the cost of so-called traditional marketing strategies.”

Blue Corona continues to see strong interest in its services from a wide variety of industries - from major healthcare systems to home services companies such as contractors, HVAC, plumbing, remodeling, roofing, etc. – and is poised to continue its impressive record of strong growth as it as it positions itself as one of the top inbound marketing and SEO companies in North America.
