TORONTO, October 4, 2012 – Young and experienced is usually an oxymoron, but this is not the case for the internet marketing specialists at Powered by Search, an agency that’s turning three tomorrow.
“We are thrilled that major corporations such as Public Storage, Delta Hotels, and Primus Telecommunications have come to rely on the company’s expertise,” said Alex Rascanu, the agency’s marketing manager. Despite an average age of only 25, the company’s employees have significant internet marketing expertise and are recruited from top enterprises such as Apple, Microsoft, Razorfish, Logitech, and Kraft Foods. Workforce diversity is an asset it leverages; in addition to being bilingual, its employees speak a diverse range of languages such as Hindi, Cantonese, and Romanian.
Start-ups like Powered by Search offer an unprecedented opportunity for bright young Canadians to enter the double-digit growth Search Engine Marketing industry. Experts at SEMPO and eConsultancy estimate that the search engine marketing industry in North America will reach a value of nearly $23 billion by the end of 2012, an increase of nearly 19 percent, and up from $19.3 billion in 2011.
This month, Powered by Search’s 364% revenue growth ranked it number 23 in Profit magazine’s PROFIT HOT 50. The ranking features Canada’s fastest growing young firms based on their two-year revenue growth.
The agency is continuing to expand in a sustainable way, adding jobs and major international corporations such as RE/MAX and Intercontinental Hotels to its client list. It added three new staff in the last month and is continuing to recruit. “We’re ready and well prepared for even more growth going into our 4th year of doing business and we look forward to hiring more of Canada’s brightest minds,” said Dev Basu, founder of Powered by Search.
“Our team has worked incredibly hard to become amongst the best in the Search Engine Marketing industry, and these efforts have accelerated the growth of our client base to over 100+ clients in 9 countries and 3 continents. We are in a great position to continue on this path and deliver unparalleled internet marketing results for our clients,” said Basu.
Powered by Search began operations in 2009 out of Basu’s home, and has grown rapidly since then, with the company having recently moved into its 3rd office to gear for further expansion. The agency specializes in helping mid-sized and enterprise level businesses gain the highest possible return on investment on their online marketing investments, managing marketing channels including Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Paid Search Marketing (PPC), and Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO).
