WordStream Named 8th Fastest-Growing Company in Massachusetts by Boston Business Journal

The online marketing company was recognized as one of the 10 fastest-growing companies in the state thanks to 500% revenue growth between 2012 and 2015.

BOSTON, MA, APRIL 28, 2016 - The Boston Business Journal recently recognized WordStream, Inc., a provider of online advertising products and services, as one of the fastest-growing companies in Massachusetts and the Greater Boston metropolitan area as part of the publication’s Fast 50 awards.

WordStream was recognized as the eighth-fastest growing company in the Bay State for the preceding three-year period. WordStream achieved 500% growth in revenue between 2012 and 2015, and has expanded steadily as an organization to keep pace with this aggressive growth.

“One of my favorite parts of my job is accepting awards that recognize the hard work that everyone puts in to help WordStream grow,” said Ralph Folz, Chief Executive Officer of WordStream. “We’ve been aggressive in our growth during the past three years, and it’s incredibly rewarding to see that hard work pay off. We’re going to leverage this momentum to make online advertising even easier for our customers.”

During the past 12 months, WordStream has embarked on a number of exciting new initiatives to help drive this impressive growth. The company’s AdWords Performance Grader, a free software tool that evaluates the strength of advertisers’ AdWords account according to 10 key metrics, was redesigned to provide users with a more streamlined, intuitive, and responsive experience.

In addition, the company implemented support for Facebook Ads into its WordStream Advisor software platform, a cloud-based online advertising management solution. WordStream also released its Social Ads offering as a standalone product, helping more small to medium sized businesses grow through the power of social advertising.

“I’m so excited about the projects we’ve been working on over the past year,” said WordStream Founder Larry Kim. “We’ve been working closely with our partners at Google, Facebook, and Microsoft, and I’m thrilled to see our products and services helping so many businesses get more bang out of their marketing budgets.”

The Boston Business Journal’s recognition of WordStream’s growth is not the first accolade the company has earned thanks to its impressive growth trajectory. WordStream has been featured on Inc. magazine’s Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the US for three consecutive years, and the company has also been recognized for its commitment to employee satisfaction and work environment, being named to the BBJ’s Best Places to Work list two years in a row.
