NEW YORK, NY, August 26, 2009 — ePromos Promotional Products today announces that it has been named – for the third year running – among the Inc. 5000, a much-anticipated, comprehensive ranking of the 5,000 fastest-growing, privately owned companies in the United States.
“Just as the Inc. 5000 serves as what the folks at Inc. call ‘a unique report card on the U.S. economy,’ our placement among its ranks serves as a report card on our steady growth despite recent tumult in the markets,” explains ePromos’ CEO and founder Jason Robbins. “Where other promotional products firms might have faltered when companies tightened marketing and promotions budgets, ePromos’ course remains steady. We have kept our focus on helping marketers and business owners tap the power of promotional products to not only survive, but also to thrive,” he adds.
According to Robbins, ePromos success is due in part to the firm’s extensive web catalog at www.epromos.com, which houses 14,000+ promotional products plus numerous case studies and real-world advice for selecting promotional products best suited to individual promotions. The firm’s success is also due, says Robbins, to its established team of marketing-savvy promotional experts. “Our customers return to us again and again not only because we’ve made our website user-friendly and very easy to search,” explains Robbins, “they also return because marketers and business owners appreciate being able to connect with a real person, a promotional expert who can listen to what they want to accomplish, provide recommendations and product samples from a deep well of suppliers, and then seamlessly manage the product ordering process from start to finish.”
ePromos and its fellow Inc. 5000 companies, with aggregate revenue of $214 billion – up $29 billion from last year – have added more than one million jobs since their founding, a testament to their combined strength and growth potential. ePromos currently employs 75+ people in its offices in New York City, Florida, Arizona, Massachusetts, Minnesota and Oregon.
“Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older, private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate,” says Inc. 5000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. “That’s why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year.” Today, ePromos continues on its success path, seeking placement on the fourth annual Inc. 5000 and to add several thousand new customers to the 20,000+ it serves today.
