We are very excited about announcing the 2012 Technology 200. This is our 3rd annual list and proud to have so many high quality companies on our list. We want to say thank you to all of the applicants and hope to see you next year.
Over the past 3 years we have noticed a trend in our lists. It seems there are a lot of inbound/seo software companies that are growing very quickly. They have actually been growing faster than any of the mobile companies inside the lists. This includes companies like Hubspot, SEOMoz, Marketo, BrightWave Marketing, InfusionSoft, Vindicia, VerticalResponse and Yodle.
This wouldn’t be surprising if you were to look at our Marketing ROI survey. The past 2 years we have been asking the Tech 200 applicants where they see the biggest return in their marketing budget. This includes traditional as well as new media options. In both years, you will notice that the top 4 marketing methods are seo, email marketing, online ads and tradeshows. Excluding tradeshows, this is exactly what these inbound & marketing automation software companies are delivering to their clients.
So who is the overall winner? Austin-based MHD Enterprises took the top spot with 4823% growth. That is a 37% increase over last year’s winner. Congratulations!
The selection process for this year’s movers and shakers in the Software, Hardware, Internet, Media, Advertising, Wireless, Telecom, IT Services, eCommerce, and Consulting industries included the following requirements:
- Must be privately held and based in the U.S.
- Must have $1,000,000 in yearly revenues in 2011
