Innovative Marketing Technology and Exceptional Customer Support Fuel Rapid Growth
Since its inception, Knotice has been consistently recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in northeast Ohio (most recently #8 on the 2010 Weatherhead 100, among others). With increasing demand for Knotice’s marketing software and services, the company is in the process of hiring for approximately 23 new professional-level jobs between now and August 2011 across several departments. (For a complete list of opportunities, go to www.knotice.com/careers.)
To help attract the attention of qualified professionals who may be ready to make a change, Knotice has even erected a billboard along I-77 North near downtown Cleveland that reads “Grow with us” – a not-so-common sight with the current economic conditions.
This latest hiring wave is not new for the organization. Knotice has consistently posted strong increases in revenue and job creation since its founding. Over the last five years, Knotice’s overall growth has exceeded 500 percent in both number of employees (511 percent) and revenue (535 percent). Back in 2006, the company employed nine people (eight of whom work at Knotice today.) Very soon, that number will exceed 90.
One reason for the steady growth stems from the fact that Knotice’s data-centered software platform allows marketers to reduce costs while easily creating profitable relationships with their customer – primarily through email, SMS, mobile and online – providing more relevant marketing messages and digital experiences to consumers. The system is extremely powerful yet easy to use, plus the marketing services and support (all based in Akron, Ohio) that Knotice provides to customers is among the best in the business.
In an industry where software companies raise millions of dollars in an attempt to integrate disparate systems and features to meet the evolving needs of direct digital marketers, Knotice has found success organically. A truly innovative product, Knotice’s on-demand software platform, Concentri®, is specifically designed to make easy work of the tasks that go into digital marketing campaigns through a variety of channels. In fact, it’s the first and only software platform to unify the functions direct digital marketers need to create profitable relationships with their customers over email, mobile, and the Web. This, in conjunction with Knotice’s unique US-based 24-hour customer support, has resulted in rapid growth for the company without the need for additional external funding many technology companies rely on to fuel growth.
“Knotice is proud to call northeast Ohio home and we are thrilled to be able to provide job opportunities to talented individuals in the area,” said Knotice co-founder and CEO Brian Deagan. “Company growth cannot happen without great people and great customers, and we are thankful to have both. And thanks to the folks at Jumpstart, who provided Knotice with its initial funding, for the opportunity to grow and thrive in northeast Ohio.”
The news of Knotice’s job creation follows another record-setting quarter during which the company added several new customers including Fender Musical Instruments Corporation, Telltale Games, Akron Children’s Hospital, and Trupanion, released the first of a series of groundbreaking Mobile Email Opens Reports, and released the award-winning whitepaper “Harnessing the Power of the Mobile Web.”
