There’s never a bad time for reflection, right? To take a step back and look at everything through an unbiased lens. The wins. The losses. The lessons. In a year when life has been turned upside down, it makes one appreciate the milestones reached that much more.
Inc. magazine released this year’s list of America’s fastest growing, privately owned companies. The Inc. 5000 as they’re known as, has been a prestigious honor going on 38 years. To make this list is a true testament to having the willpower, creativity, and passion to overcome extreme obstacles in growing a small business. Making this list is no small feat. It’s members are reserved for the best of the best. Those that are changing the game so that the game can never be played the same way again. And, for the 7th consecutive year, everyone here at Surefire Local is wholeheartedly humbled and honored to be among those featured.
Honestly though, we’re celebrating more than just our growth. Because without our customers who never fail to inspire us, we wouldn’t be where we are today, and we’d also never be able to reach our ultimate destination.
In a year of unpredictability, we’ve been able to refocus our efforts on creating a new website to serve as a powerful resource for small businesses, continuously improving the Surefire Local Marketing Platform so that it’s become the industry’s most powerful all-in-one solution for digital marketing, and going above and beyond to help our customers navigate through unprecedented times.
Our founder and CEO, Chris Marentis, is thrilled by the recognition and admits he owes it all to Surefire Local’s incredible customers, employees and partners. “To receive this honor 7 years running demonstrates our commitment to helping small business owners simplify their online marketing and grow profitably through the use of technology. I’m so proud of the team we’ve built here and am inspired by how driven each person is, no matter the department, to push us forward in our mission to create the best customer experiences for all those who put their trust in us.”
As we look back, we’ll never forget our beginning. Who would’ve thought what once started out as a book passed around at industry events would transform into a company serving over 3,000 local businesses across the U.S.
They say part of the journey is the end, and we’ll be honest, we’re far from the end.
