29 Prime was recently the subject of an extensive article written by Kari Hamanaka of the Orange County Business Journal, a weekly publication that focuses on providing up-to-date news about Orange County businesses, industries and businesspeople. Hamanaka recently toured the company to take a look at its practices, learn about the online services they offer and speak with its founders.
The article discusses 29 Prime’s evolving search engine marketing and social media offerings, as well its rapid growth over the last two years. In addition to discussing the company’s more than 800% increase in revenue from its founding in 2010, the article reports that 29 Prime’s staff has increased more than 300% to 200 people at the company’s location in Irvine, CA. It also contains mentions of the company’s long-term goals, which include continued innovation in the Search Engine Marketing space, plans for expansion overseas and finally an Initial Public Offering at some point in the future.
29 Prime’s proprietary software platform allows the company to automate a variety of processes that other SEO firms need to handle manually. The software helps clients rank on the first page of Google’s local search results as well as provides them with the capability to manage optimized profiles on Yahoo!, Bing and various social networking sites. With a client base of more than 8,000 small business owners and growing, the relatively young company is already making waves in the industry.
Chief Operations Officer Tony Redman was excited about the coverage. “We’re elated to be getting coverage from such a prestigious and popular business publication. It’s very encouraging to receive a write-up like this, especially because 29 Prime is still a new and growing presence. We’re becoming a force to be reckoned with nationally and this article definitely lends further credibility to that claim. Hopefully this is the start of an ongoing relationship with the OCBJ that involves further coverage of the work we’re doing here.”
