We honestly wondered, “Should we start this with 5000 thank yous? 5000 exclamation points? 5000 favorite things about our clients?” Why, you ask? Because we’re incredibly excited to announce that LimeLight Marketing has been recognized as one of the fastest growing privately owned companies in the U.S. by making the Inc. 5000!
It feels like yesterday we started this journey, and we’re so proud that in just seven short years our team has been able to grow, continually better our skills, and help clients pursue their dreams by growing their businesses.
“We’re very honored to be included in this list of successful companies,” Brandee Johnson, founder and president said. “Beginning with just a few people and clients this was always a goal. But it wouldn’t have been possible without the talent and passion our team of marketing experts brings to our business every day.”
About the Inc. 5000
In case you’re not familiar with the Inc. 5000, it’s an annual editorial award celebrating the nation’s 5000 fastest-growing private companies by ranking their overall revenue growth over three years. To qualify for the 2022 list, companies must have been U.S. based, privately held, for profit, and independent as of December 31, 2021 (and making at least $2 million in revenue) and funded and generating income of at least $100,000 since March 31, 2018.
In addition to being a barometer for company growth, the Inc. 5000 is a celebration of innovation, a network of entrepreneurial leaders, and something we’ve set our sights on for several years. Did you know that many household names such as Intuit, Under Armour, Microsoft, Pandora, 7-Eleven, Toys ‘R’ Us, Zipcar, Zappos.com, and many others first gained national exposure on the Inc. 5000 list?
We’re not saying that LimeLight is going to be as popular as 7-Eleven one day, but we’re not not saying that either, and that empty space by the printer may or may not be the perfect place for a slurpee machine. Only time will tell!
Our growth wouldn’t be possible without amazingly talented and hardworking LimeLighters, clients who’ve trusted us to guide their marketing and grow their businesses, and a community in Pittsburg, KS, that’s been supportive every step of the way. To all of them, we offer our heartfelt gratitude. Thank you, 5000 times.
