Agency Honored For Impressive 147% Growth Rate
August 31, 2021 – Raleigh, N.C. – For the third year in a row, 919 Marketing is recognized as North Carolina’s highest-ranked and fastest growing PR firm. The company is ranked for the fifth time on the Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The multi-million-dollar cause and franchise PR agency located just outside Raleigh, experienced an explosive three-year growth rate of 147 percent.
The Real Deal
The ranking is especially meaningful because it highlights the impressive and proven growth of 919 Marketing during the challenging COVID crisis. The Inc. 5000 rankings are based on audited financial statements and unbiased, documented results.
919 Marketing’s growth is fueled by its award-winning work for an impressive roster of tenured North Carolina cause-marketing and non-profit clients, and new national franchise clients, including startups, emerging franchises, and Fortune 500 companies. The company’s results-driven marketing has become so renowned outside of the state, clients across the country have signed on including a California-based e-bike retailer and manufacturer and a chain of physical therapy clinics out of Kentucky.
Work That Wins
“919 Marketing is thrilled to be the PR and marketing agency of choice for North Carolina and U.S. companies that want to grow their business with our creative and innovative strategies,” says 919 Marketing CEO and founder David Chapman. “We are extremely proud of our growth during the COVID crisis where we hunkered down, charged ahead fearlessly, and triumphed during a challenging business climate. We have earned a renowned reputation within the North Carolina non-profit sector and in the national franchising industry that has clients selecting us and staying with us year-after-year as their trusted partner. We continue to accelerate our growth with our proprietary 919 Insights platform, an artificial intelligence analytics tool that provides a roadmap for our content and proof to our clients that our marketing strategies are helping them meet and beat their growth goals. None of this would be possible without our award-winning team of top, tenacious talent that delivers game-changing results to our clients.”
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
