2013: A Year in Review for Blue Corona
While everyone else has been working on their annual reviews and creating holiday shopping guides…we’ve been doing that too. But don’t think that’s because forgot to investigate industry news (like Google’s switch to full (not provided) search data or the Ad Rank algorithm change) or analyze our client success stories—because we’ve been doing those too!
At Blue Corona, we all act like owners and strive to over-deliver in our day-to-day online marketing services. This employee mindset has led to an amazing 2013 for our company, so to give you a sample, here’s what we’ve been up to for the last 12 months!
New Faces, New Talent
The growth of our clients and services meant that we had to grow our own company too! We add plenty of (pretty) faces to our offices in 2013:
- Monica, Copywriter/SEO Campaign Manager
- Hannah, Copywriter/SEO Campaign Manager
- Sean, Sales Executive
- Zack, Account Manager
- Elizabeth, Copywriter/SEO Campaign Manager
- Tara, Pay-Per-Click Specialist
- Jake, Copywriter/SEO Campaign Manager
- Steven, Copywriter/SEO Campaign Manager
With our nine additions, we continue to grow even more month by month, proving ourselves a solid candidate for a…
Spot on the Inc. 5000
Blue Corona earned the spot of 694 on Inc. magazine’s 2013 list of the 5000 fastest-growing, privately-held companies. This is the second consecutive year that Blue Corona made the Inc. 500|5000, following its debut last year at number 174.
The 2013 ranking makes Blue Corona the fastest-growing inbound internet marketing firm in the Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia region and the second fastest-growing, privately-held advertising and marketing firm in the area.
To celebrate, the Charlotte office drove up and surprised the Maryland office in August—allowing some of our employees to meet for the first time!
Online Marketing E-Learning Platform
Since its initial creation in March, our employees have been working hard to further develop Blue Corona U, our online marketing online education platform.
Currently the courses are only available for internal training, but look forward to our release in 2014! All courses (include SEO 101, Local SEO, HTML, and more) will be available online 24/7 and can transform a beginner to a web marketing pro in 16 weeks or less!
More Talent, More Space
Since January, our Charlotte, NC office has grown by 50 percent! With the new talent, we moved to a new location within Charlotte. Now, the southern team is located above a BBQ restaurant with a beautiful view of the skyline.
