Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
Information services company Lead411 (http://www.lead411.com/) recently announced its Tech 200 list of the fastest growing tech companies in the US. This year saw an influx of new applicants from across the country in diverse industries.
About the Tech 200
Now in its fourth year, the Tech 200 list highlights US tech companies with the highest percent of revenue growth from 2010 to 2012. Lead411 calculates revenue growth by percentages vs. dollar growth. This year, the average revenue growth was 250%, which is 13% higher than last year’s Tech 200 list, and 17% higher than 2011.

Who Ranks in the Tech 200
Lead411 requires applicants to be privately held, US-based, and with at least $1 million in revenue in 2012. The industries that the Tech 200 work in include:
● Business Services
● Mobile, App & Web Development
● Online Advertising
“I noted this year that we had some not-so-obvious players, like Gotham Cigars and Bridge Technical Talent,” said Tom Blue, founder of Lead411, “The Tech 200 list doesn’t always include high-tech industries, as many would assume.”
Applicants also shared some insight into what makes their companies tick in terms of marketing efforts. This year, more companies put resources into SEO, email marketing, trade shows and online ads, which is in line with past survey results. A new category added to the lineup was Content Marketing and Blogging, which took 5th place for companies, who said it provided 36% of their ROI for marketing.
“We added in Content Marketing and Blogging to our question about ROI because we’ve seen so many companies jump on this bandwagon as a way to reach their customers,” said Blue, “Clearly it’s working, if you look at the revenues these companies are pulling in.”
Finalists of this year’s Tech 200 list include Work Market, 3dcart, TubeMogul, MentorMate, and Hubspot. View the full list at http://www.lead411.com/tech200/2013/list.php.
