Wellspring Search, LLC, a full-service digital marketing agency specializing in Search Engine Optimization, Pay Per Click management and Internet marketing, graduates from the Frederick Innovative Technology Center, Inc. (FITCI) incubator this month. Founded in January 2017, the Google Analytics certified company joined FITCI last fall, quickly growing from one to 12 employees, including 5 new hires in the last two months.
Wellspring Search will maintain its headquarters at FITCI’s Metropolitan Court location while adding a second office in Pennsylvania. The new space is 1700 ft.² at the old library in downtown Fairfield and opens July 15. Two team members will transition to the new office.
Kathie Callahan Brady is FITCI’s CEO. She says Wellspring Search is unique because of the depth of experience among the staff. “These are seasoned professionals with expertise in their respective fields. They know marketing automation and website management, hosting business applications and traditional marketing.” She continues “What really makes Wellspring Search a success story is their ability to navigate the dual nature of running a business. It’s not enough to have a great product or service. Entrepreneurs need to manage people and resources, navigate financial and regulatory pitfalls, and still keep their eyes on the prize. Wellspring Search came here ready to work for that grand vision and it shows.”
Karl Hindle, Managing Partner and Founder of Wellspring Search, credits FITCI’s dedicated support system and Frederick’s cohesive business environment for spurring the company’s meteoric rise. He says, “Being here is empowering. It enabled us to experience the growth that we have.” He is especially proud that the company remains debt-free and profitable since day one.
Four additional positions are slated for Wellspring Search’s Frederick HQ in the coming months. The company’s 125+ international client list spans the gamut from record labels and major artists to sports teams and Fortune 100 companies.
Hindle says clients appreciate Wellspring Search’s no-nonsense, “white hat” approach to management. “We maintain three guiding principles: integrity, transparency and commitment. That’s our foundation and the secret to success.”
