SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2014) - 3Q Digital, one of the San Francisco Bay Area's biggest independent digital marketing agencies, today announced its inclusion in the prestigious 2014 Inc. 500|5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America. The inclusion is the first in the company's history. 3Q Digital is ranked #677 on the 2014 list, having grown revenue by 671% since 2010.
The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy -- America's independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino's Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
"On behalf of the entire team at 3Q Digital, we're truly honored to receive this acknowledgement, and thanks to Inc. for the recognition," said David Rodnitzky, CEO & Founder, 3Q Digital. "The Inc. award represents the amazing work that the 3Q Digital team does daily for our clients, and speaks to our company's 3 Qs -- best-in-class customer service (EQ), dynamic and evolving strategies (IQ), and repeatable, proprietary methodology (XQ). When all three are achieved, good things will happen."
Rodnitzky founded 3Q Digital in 2008, then known as PPC Associates and strictly as a search engine marketing agency focusing on paid search marketing. Five years later, the company has evolved into a full-service digital agency -- offering SEM, SEO, display, social, mobile, and video advertising -- resulting in a rebranding to 3Q Digital in late 2013. In early 2014, 3Q Digital acquired fellow Bay Area digital agency iSearch Media, creating a combined business managing more than $300 million in client spend annually. Some of 3Q Digital's notable clients include GoPro, Eventbrite, SurveyMonkey, Warby Parker, Square, and Fitbit, to name a few.
The agency prides itself on the 3 Qs -- best-in-class customer service (EQ), dynamic and evolving strategies (IQ), and repeatable, proprietary methodology (XQ). Today, 3Q Digital works with more than 110 clients and has more than 120 employees in offices in San Francisco, San Diego, San Mateo, Chicago, and Burlington.
3Q Digital team members are often invited to speak at industry events like ClickZ Live, MediaPost Search Insider Summit, LeadsCon, and the SMX event series. Additionally, they often contribute guest bylines to media outlets like Search Engine Land, MediaPost, SearchEngineWatch, and Marketing Land, to name a few.
