Earning a spot on the Inc. 5000 list is more than an honor; it’s a hallmark of entrepreneurial triumph. Inc. revealed today that LOCOMOTIVE ranks No. 2415 on the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual compilation of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This prestigious ranking isn’t just a list, but a data-driven spotlight on the most successful companies within the economy’s most vibrant and dynamic segment – independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Household names like Under Armour, Microsoft, and Patagonia began their rise to fame as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
In the challenging economic landscape of 2023, the Inc. 5000 represents companies that have mastered rapid revenue growth while navigating inflation, rising costs, and hiring obstacles. Now, LOCOMOTIVE stands among these select few, earning a recognition that mirrors our decade-long journey of growth, innovation, and steadfast commitment to our clients. But what is it that placed us among America’s entrepreneurial elite on this distinguished list?
Since 2012, LOCOMOTIVE has thrived at the forefront of technical SEO, and all things SEO. Our position in the industry was never an accident but a calculated series of strides marked by keen decision-making and forward-thinking practices.
The acquisition of Mad Leads in 2021 was one such stride, allowing us to branch into comprehensive paid media services. This expansion not only diversified our offerings but added robust new revenue streams, fortifying our market presence.
Our journey has been marked by an unwavering commitment to innovation. By embracing AI and Machine Learning, we’ve redefined industry standards, positioning ourselves as leaders ready to leverage cutting-edge strategies. These forward-thinking practices have driven impactful outcomes and consistent revenue growth for three consecutive years.
But it’s not all about technology; it’s about people. Our exceptional client loyalty—with over 50% of our clients partnering with us for three or more years and 20% for an incredible 8-10 years—speaks volumes about our relationship-centric approach. Building enduring relationships has been more than a guiding principle; it’s been the essence of our sustained success.
Managing a distributed team across multiple continents has challenges, but we’ve turned them into opportunities. By acquiring Mad Leads and having employees across the world, we have developed a unique perspective that enhances the quality of our services. Our collaborative environment has become a catalyst for innovation, allowing us to scale remote operations while maintaining a close-knit culture.
To our clients, partners, and the brilliant LOCOMOTIVE team, thank you for being part of this meaningful journey. The future is filled with possibilities, and we’re just getting started.
