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
