Internet Search Firm, Ravenwood Marketing, Named Fastest Growing
Company in Boulder, Colorado
BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 17, 2004--Ravenwood Marketing,
Inc., a leading performance-based search engine marketing firm,
announced today that it has been named number one on the Mercury 100
list of fastest-growing private companies. The Mercury 100 list
recognizes the entrepreneurial achievements of rapidly growing
companies in Colorado's Boulder and Broomfield counties, based on
the largest percent growth in revenues from 2002 to 2003.
Ravenwood delivered a whopping 1,471 percent increase in revenue in
2003, with sales reaching $1.1 million, and received the honor at an
invitation-only event held recently in Boulder.
"We are gratified to receive this award only two years after
starting our search marketing business," said Dan Murray, founder of
the three-person Ravenwood Marketing. "Today, search engines like
Google serve as a type of 'digital crossroads' -- they are an
incredible resource for Internet users looking for information and
they are extremely valuable for companies looking for new customers.
We've created a way to harness this power for our clients with an
attractive offering where we only get paid on results."
By running paid search campaigns and utilizing other search engine
optimization methods, Ravenwood is able to supply its ecommerce
clients with a continuous flow of new customers from the Internet.
Murray concluded, "Search engines are fast becoming the doorway to
our collective knowledge base. We help companies ensure they're not
left behind in this important new space."
