Kenneth C. Wisnefski, founder and CEO of WebiMax, announced today that Forbes has named the search engine optimization company one of America’s Most Promising Companies. Forbes‘ list of America’s Most Promising Companies features 100 privately held up-and-comers with compelling business models, strong management teams, notable customers, strategic partners and precious investment capital.
“It is an honor to announce WebiMax has been selected 30th overall on Forbes’ list of America’s Most Promising Companies”, Wisnefski announced in a company email. “When I founded the company in 2008, I wanted to create a firm that works with our clients more as a strategic partner versus an outsourced vendor”.
WebiMax is well-regarded as the industry’s best SEO company not only due to their business model that returns maximum results to clients but in addition to the integrity and quality of work the company is known for. While most SEO firms outsource their services to overseas countries including China, India and the Philippians, WebiMax conducts all work in-house. Furthermore, the company acts in ethical standards and is a Google Certified Partner, following their parameters and guidelines for white-hat search engine optimization.
“Sizing up younger, privately held companies is hard: Their fortunes can change very quickly and there’s a dearth of public data,” says Forbes Executive Editor Brett Nelson. “We took a more comprehensive approach to evaluating candidate’s health and potential in our selection.”
To sharpen its search, Forbes teamed up with CB Insights, a Manhattan-based data firm that tracks investment in high-growth private companies. With $650,000 in grants from the National Science Foundation, CB has developed complex software called Mosaic that mines myriad online sources (from press releases and social networks to job boards and court filings) to come up with one, algorithmically derived score that measures a private company’s health. Forbes married Mosaic’s data-crunching with old-fashioned reporting to assemble a list of rising stars with bright growth prospects.
WebiMax has received various accolades during 2011 including South Jersey’s Fastest Growing Company, Philadelphia Business Journal’s Best Places to Work, Google Certified Partner and now America’s Most Promising Companies.
“As we are upon the closing of 2011, our company has made several strides this year that have positioned us not only as a dominant leader in online marketing services and SEO, but an up-and-coming company that is positioned for explosive growth in the long-term”, concludes Wisnefski.
