The Search Agency Continues Strong Growth in 2009

Leading integrated online marketing firm increases annual revenue 37% and brings on a broad range of new clients.

Santa Monica, CA January 27, 2010 - The Search Agency (TSA) announced that 2009 was another strong year as the company grew annual revenue 37% and hired more than 40 additional employees.

Matt Kain, Chief Revenue Officer at TSA, attributes this growth to the increasing demand for integrated online marketing services and the company’s longstanding commitment to results-driven client service: “Despite the challenging macro-economic conditions, our clients are still earning positive returns on their investment in online marketing. Based on this success, they are looking to TSA to help them increase their reach and engagement with new content delivery formats as well as additional advertising channels.”

The company’s expansion included the opening of new offices in London, England and Bangalore, India. This broader international footprint enables TSA to extend its services to more companies around the world as well as better support its U.S.-based clients with global online marketing programs.

In 2009, TSA also added a number of new disciplines to its suite of integrated online marketing services. Building on its well-recognized foundation in Search Engine Marketing (SEM), Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and Conversion Path Optimization (CPO), TSA expanded its capabilities in Display Media, Social Media, Reputation Management, and Integrated Marketing Solutions.

And on the technology side, the company added new SEO diagnostic tools, an enhanced cross-channel reporting and analytics interface, and a number of new SEM bid management features to its AdMax™ online marketing platform.

In May, The Search Agency was recognized by Advertising Age as a top-10 independent U.S. search marketing agency. And in November, Deloitte named it the 83rd fastest growing company in its Technology Fast 500™.
