Wilkes Barre, PA (PRWEB) August 24, 2006
Wilkes-Barre, PA (PRWEB) August 24, 2006 -- Pepperjam™, the industry’s leading full-service internet marketing agency, announced today that they have been named to the 2006 Inc. 500. The Inc. 500, published annually by Inc. Magazine, represents a list of the fastest growing privately held businesses in the United States. Pepperjam is ranked NO. 293, with three-year revenue growth of nearly 500%, making them the most successful full-service internet marketing firm on the list.
“Being named to the Inc. 500 is an incredible honor – it means that Pepperjam joins a list of present and past Inc. 500 companies, including Microsoft, Go Daddy, Oracle, Zappos.com and more. This designation is truly the product of a unified team effort at Pepperjam. Becoming an Inc. 500 company even further separates Pepperjam as the most innovative, aggressive online marketing agency in the nation,” said Kristopher B. Jones, President & CEO of Pepperjam.
The 2006 Inc. 500, as revealed in the September issue of Inc., reported the most robust bunch of companies the magazine has ever compiled, with aggregate revenue of $19.7 billion, up from $16.5 billion last year and $12.9 billion in 2000. The two largest companies on this year's Inc. 500 are the biggest ever to make the list -- No. 170 Western Refining ($3.4 billion in revenue) and No. 376 Newegg.com ($1.26 billion) -- and the third and fourth companies in Inc. 500 history to crack the billion-dollar mark. In all, 14 companies topped $200 million in annual revenue, compared with 11 last year.
Most important, the 2006 Inc. 500 companies were engines of job growth, having created more than 90,000 jobs since those companies were founded.
This year's list is the first to include businesses that started up immediately before and after September 11, 2001 -- including the No. 1 company and 20 companies in the top 50 -- as well as many companies that had to raise capital after the dot-com bubble burst. In total, 104 companies listed on this year's Inc. 500 were started after 2000.
"If you want to find out which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. 500," said Inc. Editor Jane Berentson. "These are the most innovative, dynamic, fast-growth companies in the nation, the ones coming up with solutions to some of our most intractable ills, creating systems that let us conduct business faster and easier, and manufacturing products we soon discover we can't live without. The Inc. 500 list is Inc. magazine's tribute to American business ingenuity and ambition."
“Internet marketing is quickly changing the face of the advertising world in general. To be involved in the online marketing space is exciting, but to be a leader and trend-setter in the space is truly humbling,” said Jones.
