Range Online Media receives the highest average client satisfaction rating in the constellation… Range Online Media adopts an extremely individualized approach to each client's campaign, using employees' knowledge and experience to build customized campaigns for clients.

Range Online Media, a company that started six years ago with three clients focusing on paid search marketing, has now grown to one of the fastest growing private companies in America, according to Inc. Magazine. The company now offers comprehensive interactive marketing services, including paid search, SEO, online media and feeds, to more than 30 clients including Nike, The Sundance Channel, CompUSA, The Container Store, Burberry, and The Sharper Image. Range has grown to employ more than 50 experienced interactive marketers, has offices in four states and two countries and has been named as of last week to the Inc. 5,000 list.

Inc. Magazine named Range Online Media as number 71 on the list of fastest growing companies in the Dallas-Fort Worth market and the highest ranked advertising and marketing company in the DFW area. In addition, the Fort Worth Business Press announced last week that Range is in the top 100 private companies in Tarrant County.
"Being named to the Inc. 5,000 list is a source of pride for Range, but also a validation of our growth strategy for the past six years," said Misty Locke, Co-founder and President of Range Online Media. "We were one of the first search marketing agencies and have grown not through acquisition, but organically through an intense focus on customer service, client-driven technology strategy and retention of our highly-skilled employees in an otherwise competitive employee marketplace."

Range's three core areas of focus have continually proven successful for both the company and client growth:

  • Customer service - Jupiter Research's Search Engine Marketing Agency Constellation Report, released in 2006, confirmed Range Online Media's commitment to customer service by stating that, "Range Online Media receives the highest average client satisfaction rating in the constellation… Range Online Media adopts an extremely individualized approach to each client's campaign, using employees' knowledge and experience to build customized campaigns for clients." This is the fourth consecutive year that Range received the highest average customer service rating in the search marketing industry.
  • Client-driven technology - Range recently launched its second generation SRS (Strategic Results System) reporting and measurement platform. The dynamic reporting system was created based on feedback from clients experiencing a void in the marketplace of truly unbiased technology leadership and the ability to look at their multitude of reporting inputs and processes holistically.
  • Employee training and retention - Despite industry-wide difficulty hiring and retaining experienced interactive marketers, Range has managed to retain 86% of its trained account executives over the past five years.

The 2007 Inc. 5,000, as revealed online at http://www.inc.com, reported that the median revenue of the companies included in the list was $9.4 million and that the median three-year growth was 140 percent. The 2007 Inc. 5000 list measures revenue growth from 2003 through 2006. To qualify, companies had to be U.S.-based and privately held, independent - not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies - as of December 31, 2006, and have had at least $200,000 in revenue in 2003, and $2 million in 2006.
