This week we received some exciting news. For the second consecutive year, we are extremely proud to be named to the Inc. 500, a list of America’s fastest growing companies. In 2013, we cracked the list at number 472. This year, we nearly made the top 100.
Queue the champagne and victory parade.
Actually, wait. Hold that thought. While it’s an honor to be a member of such an exclusive club, we’re not taking any time off for high-fives and fist-bumps. No, we’re getting back to work. Our greatest achievements aren’t things you can place on the mantel or stuff in the trophy case. For us, the ultimate measure of success is the value and opportunity that we provide our clients. At RevLocal, we made a conscious choice to serve small and medium businesses. Without their trust each and every day, accolades like this are impossible.
What got us here won’t get us there.
Don’t get us wrong. Is it sweet to have our name in a magazine? Absolutely. We plan on getting that bad-boy framed. We’ve realized something, though. What got us here won’t get us there. We’ve adopted this mantra because we’re not satisfied. We can’t be. The Internet has forever changed consumer behavior. Small and medium businesses need help. They need a partner. We are that partner.
The very nature of digital marketing is unpredictable and tumultuous. We know that the products and services we provided a couple years ago would be trampled by today’s behaviors and algorithms. Does the uncertainty intimidate us? No way. We’ve embraced the chaos, and it’s only made us stronger. Our clients count on us. If we fail, they fail. We’re not going to let that happen.
From all of us at RevLocal, thank you.
Without you, our clients, we wouldn’t be here. You are the true entrepreneurs. We are honored to go to work with you day after day. You’ve taught us that small and medium business actually means big business. There are no guarantees in life, but you’re still brave enough to chase your dreams. You are our motivation. For you, we will go beyond. If you think we’ve changed a lot in the last twelve months, just wait and see what’s yet to come.
