NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine has named SmartBug Mediatm as one of America's fastest-growing private companies for the third straight year ? a distinction earned by fewer than 13 percent of the list's members. SmartBug Mediatm lands at number 2,095 on the distinguished Inc. 5000 list after earning a 3-year revenue growth rate of 192 percent and ongoing success as a leading Intelligent Inboundtm marketing agency.
"We're honored to be recognized as one of the nation's fastest growing companies for the third straight year," said SmartBug Founder & CEO, Ryan Malone. "Landing on the Inc. 5000 is a testament to the incredibly talented and dedicated team here at SmartBug, the quality of work we're able to produce, and the award-winning results we are able to deliver for our clients."
The Inc. 5000 list is regarded as the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment?its independent small businesses.
For SmartBug Mediatm, recognition on the list echoes unprecedented recent growth. The company expanded by 60 percent last year and continues to grow rapidly. As a 100 percent remote company without a company headquarters, SmartBugtm is comprised of more than 70 employees spread throughout 28 U.S. states. It attributes much of the company's upward trajectory to its remote culture, which allows the company to hire better talent faster while ensuring employees the flexibility to create life memories.
Additionally, the company's continuous growth is a product of a demand for Intelligent Inboundtm marketing. As a HubSpot Diamond Agency Partners, SmartBug Mediatm has earned a reputation as an inbound marketing leader. The highest-rated HubSpot partner in the world, SmartBug has found success helping businesses generating leads, increase awareness, and build brand loyalty through inbound marketing, sales enablement, CRM deployment, digital strategy, design, marketing automation, and public relations.

The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
"The companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success," said Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. "There's no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities."
