Weve known for a long time that weve got a search marketing dream team, so its nice to have that validated by a publication as respected as Profit Magazine! The Profit 100 rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over the previous 5 year period, and upon having attained a minimum revenue level.

Profit Magazine is Canadas preeminent publication dedicated to the management issues and opportunities facing small and mid-sized businesses. Published six times a year by Rogers Publishing Ltd., PROFIT is distributed almost exclusively to the chief executives of companies with five to 250 employees and annual revenue of $1 million to $25 million, reaching 306,000 readers across Canada.

Well now gladly add this award to the Branham award we received in 2006, as one of the Top 25 Canadian IT Up and Comers .

I would like to take this post as an opportunity to thank all our valued clients and employees for making this award a reality. Without you all, this would not have been possible!

Below, follows our press release on the topic.
