Inc. magazine this week revealed that Advertise Purple is No. 725 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
According to Advertise Purple’s president, Kyle Mitnick, “What an honor to earn this prestigious award for the 4th consecutive year; we are indeed in a league of our own here in the affiliate management space. Reflecting on how we achieved this, the answer is the same as when we earned our first nomination in 2018: client service.
Our ethos is a perpetual desire to deliver a superior experience and results for clients and employees. This philosophy translated to the creation of revolutionary technology, leadership infrastructure, and customer service. I want to thank our employees, our customers, and our community for enabling us to achieve this spectacular goal for a 4th consecutive year.”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.
“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.”
