YourAreaCode’s system allows small-to-medium business owners to instantly and simultaneously update their business’ website, all social media profiles, and send out SMS text messages and emails to their customers from one easy-to-use platform designed for people of all ages and expertise.  That is YourAreaCode’s unique technology, “Wexting®”.  Wexting includes a custom-designed website, SMS keyword, printed promotional materials, and unlimited 24-Hour client service and support and allows business owners of all types to market easily in the digital age.

For a nominal monthly fee, YourAreaCode’s clients utilize Wexting technology, based on an annual contract. YourAreaCode has increased sales to new clients tenfold over the past year as well as maintaining its past client base through renewals. With the company expanding its sales efforts into channel partners and affiliates as well as traditional nationwide B2B sales, YourAreaCode is poised to make 2011 its biggest year to date.

The company’s executive management team, William Whitmire III and Steven Hummel, are long-time residents of the West Michigan area and veterans of both IT and digital media marketing.  They direct a select group of dedicated creative visionaries and technical experts.  

“Twenty years ago, if advertisers could have combined TV, Radio and Newspaper ads, then given their customer the keys to the station, they would have effectively done what YAC is doing with the most important media today,’’ said YAC CEO Steve Hummel. “Never before has an advertising customer been able to distribute thousands of messages directly to their chosen audience instantly.”

Companies making it to the “Michigan 50 Companies to Watch” list are a remarkable group of second-stage companies. Defined as having 6 to 99 full-time-equivalent employees and generating $750,000 to $50 million in annual revenue or working capital from investors or grants, these companies form the backbone of Michigan’s economy. Representing all regions of the state and a diverse range of industries, companies like YourAreaCode are known for their exceptional entrepreneurial leadership, creation of innovation or use of innovation in creative ways, and their sustainable competitive advantage.

Winners were selected by Michigan-based judges from the banking, economic development, entrepreneurship development and venture capital communities.
