Quality Logo Products Featured on 2013 Tech 200 List
Hello, world. Bubba here, and I’m excited to announce that QLP has been featured in Lead411’s 2013 Tech 200 list! The Tech 200 List tracks growth in the startup world and identifies privately-held tech companies in the United States with the most growth.
See why we’re excited to be featured? Yeah, I guess you could say we’re a pretty big deal. This isn’t our first time making the list, but regardless we are thrilled to be featured again! The list features the top 200 businesses with the highest percent growth from 2010 to 2012. This year QLP ranked #135 with a 66% three year growth!
“2013 has been a great year for QLP and we’re honored that the Tech 200 recognized our achievements,” said co-owner Bret Bonnet. “We’re always growing, so it’s great to get validation for all of our hard work.”
According to gigaom.com, this year’s list has seen a huge growth in the marketing and tech industries, but there are a variety of other diverse companies that make up the list.
On the main site for the 2013 Tech 200 Lead411 reports huge growth across the board: “As the list’s popularity has grown so have the number of high quality applicants. For example, this year the average revenue growth was 250%. That is 13% higher than last year and 17% higher than 2011.
But enough about them, and more about us, right? Since more and more businesses are seeing huge success and growth, here at Quality Logo Products we are even more proud to be featured on a list of such accomplished businesses.
In addition to the 200 list, Lead411 also provided some survey statistics to see which tactics have made the businesses on the list so successful. Here are some of the major takeaways from the data:
- 73% of businesses see the biggest ROI from SEO in their marketing efforts
- The average Tech 200 company has 7 cold-call and email employees, 2 SEO employees, and 3 content/social media employees
- 75% of businesses said having a great product is the key to success, while 25% said sales and marketing
Those are all some pretty good insights. But if I do say so myself, I think some of QLP’s success can be attributed to having such a cute mascot!
Great job, QLP humans! Keep up the good work! Maybe you’ll be able to afford to buy me some pants soon, eh?
Want to say congratulations to the humans? Sound off in the comments below!
Bubba is the Quality Logo Products mascot. He may have started out as "just a stress ball," but he's come a long way since the company's launch in 2003. Bubba has been immortalized in numerous vector artwork designs for internal and external promotions, and you can see him change outfits on the Quality Logo Products homepage whenever a holiday rolls around. Oh, and he thinks pants are for the birds. You can connect with Bubba on Google+
