For the fourth time, ClickMail Marketing has made the Inc. 500|5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. But that’s not all: Among those winners, ClickMail has been ranked 9th among the 10 fastest-growing email marketing companies.
Making Inc.’s list once again
On Inc. Magazine’s newest list, ClickMail is ranked #2304 with a 158% growth rate and $5.6 million in revenue in 2012.
“We’re honored to make the list for the fourth time,” notes Marco Marini, CEO of ClickMail Marketing. “We are thankful for our customers who have made this kind of recognition possible, and we’re excited about what’s to come as we evolve as a company to meet the changing needs of email marketers.”
Although the recognition of ClickMail’s growth is also a validation of the company’s value and reputation, there is a bigger meaning to the Inc. 5000 list. The role companies such as ClickMail play in our country’s economy is significant, as an article by Inc. notes:
Management author Hermann Simon calls companies like these hidden champions, because they deliver outstanding performance while operating “in the ‘hinterland’ of the value chain, supplying machinery, components, or processes that are no longer discernible in the final product or service.” As such, they are the sinews of our economic physiology. But jobs are also created by the thousands of organizations that constitute the Inc. 5000’s customers.
Indeed, it is ClickMail’s mission to enable sophisticated marketers to achieve their business objectives, working in the “hinterland” to enable complex ESP customization and email integration. ClickMail typifies these fast-growing companies that provide the means by which big brands succeed.
But wait, there’s more!
In addition to making the list of fastest growing companies each year, ClickMail has also been ranked 9th out of the 10 fastest growing email marketing companies in the U.S., as further proof of the critical role of these kinds of behind-the-scenes businesses.
ClickMail’s growth in the email marketing industry can be attributed at least in part to our unique market niche. ClickMail sells and customizes enterprise-level email service providers. Our clients include e-commerce retailers, gaming companies, large associations and other organizations that need to take full advantage of the capabilities of enterprise-level email. Using a combination of technological expertise and business acumen, ClickMail helps marketers with large email lists and complex integration needs communicate relevant and timely information to their lists.
