MarketSmiths Named One of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies by Inc. Magazine

Copywriting and content agency MarketSmiths joined the Inc5000 list of fastest-growing privately-held businesses on August 17th, 2021. Ranking at the midpoint—2728 on the list—the firm was selected out of 7 million privately owned businesses in the US.

Inc. magazine just revealed that MarketSmiths ranks No. 2728 on its annual Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Ranked based on overall revenue growth over a three-year period, the renowned list names the top 5000 out of over 7 million privately-owned businesses in the U.S. Companies on the list represent a mere 0.07% of all private businesses, with MarketSmiths’ ranking placing it in the top 0.0378% of all businesses in terms of growth. Historically, the list has been a harbinger of future success, with companies like Zappos, Microsoft, UnderArmour, and other well-known brands gaining their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

"For a copy and content-focused agency—a company that slings words for a living—to make this list is a huge source of pride. I attribute the honor to our staff writers, all of whom are bound by an intensely shared passion for the written word," says Jean Tang, Chief Growth Officer and Founder. "Of course, we couldn't have done it without incredible clients—lightning-sharp marketers and executives who trust us, understand the joys of delegating, and have chosen to work at rocketship companies that are changing whole ecosystems for the better.”

Growth has been an intentional focus for MarketSmiths this past year, with the company doubling its employee base, and Ms. Tang transitioning from CEO into the newfound role of Chief Growth Officer. MarketSmiths’ ranking demonstrates remarkable resilience and flexibility throughout 2020’s unprecedented challenges.

Collectively, the average median three-year growth rate for the 5000 companies listed soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, the companies added more than 610,000 jobs to the market over the past three years.

“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.”
