WordStream on Fire, Wins Awards Galore

Honored by Search Engine Land, US Search Awards, and Google

Boston, October 27, 2015 – WordStream Inc., a provider of online advertising software and services, closed Q3 with high distinction, having won three industry awards and earning top marks in the recent G2 Crowd Grid report for search advertising. 

The company’s founder and chief technology officer, Larry Kim, was honored at the first annual Landy Awards in New York City on Sept. 30, celebrating the best search marketing agencies and consultants around the world. Kim took home the award for “Search Marketer of the Year (Male).” He was selected by members of the Search Engine Marketing Professional Organization (SEMPO).

Just a week later, Kim was honored again as the “US Search Personality of the Year” at the third-annual US Search Awards, which were handed out during the Pubcon event in Las Vegas. Kim was selected from a record number of entries by a panel of 30 industry experts. The awards were presented to 22 agencies and individuals for achievements in the US search and digital marketing industries.

WordStream is also thrilled to have earned “leader status” in G2 Crowd’s Fall 2015 Rankings of the Best Search Advertising Software. The distinction acknowledges WordStream with the highest overall “Satisfaction” score based on G2 Crowd’s 600-plus reviews written by business and advertising professionals. Since the winter 2015 Grid report, WordStream moved from the Niche Quadrant to the Leaders Quadrant as its satisfaction score increased by 40 points and its market presence increased by 17 points.

“The recognition WordStream has recently received from the industry – and most importantly endorsement from end-users – substantiates our goal of servicing businesses with small budgets and helping them become more successful in their online advertising,” said Larry Kim. “Search and social advertising are needle-movers for many small businesses, and it’s critical that this market segment understand that they can be pros at digital advertising, capable of competing directly with companies with big budgets. This is what we do and we’re thrilled to be making a difference.”

These awards come on the heels on WordStream’s recent acknowledgment from Google, having won the first Google Channel Sales Platform Innovator Award, in recognition of WordStream’s commitment to creating technology that empowers businesses to be more successful with online advertising. The Google award further validates WordStream’s substantial impact in innovating technology and services that support Google AdWords. It also acknowledges WordStream’s contributions to the Google Channel sales team by onboarding a significant number of new partners since the company was founded in 2007.
