Over the past three years, I’ve seen Idea Grove grow and change. We’ve said farewell to some Grovers and welcomed fresh faces to the team. We’ve expanded relationships with clients, added new and bigger names to the roster, and parted ways with others.
Last year, Idea Grove knocked down walls—literally—with an office expansion that increased our footprint by about a third. This year the build-out continued with the finishing touches, like painting our walls the vibrant IG Green, adding a wooden accent wall to make our space more grove-like and creating new spaces for collaboration (there are whiteboard walls everywhere!).
The remodel wasn’t limited to our physical space either. In 2016, we also unveiled the new Idea Grove website to match the quality of work we were delivering to our clients. It also helped this B2B tech PR firm look a little bit more tech savvy.
Our service offering has grown and changed over the years as well. When Idea Grove first started out, public relations was the primary focus, but Scott Baradell, our founder and CEO, knew that wasn’t enough to get our clients the attention they needed. Today, we’re a fully integrated marketing firm that brings together public and media relations, content development and inbound marketing, organic social media and employee engagement programs, paid media campaigns, and email marketing—all beautifully executed with the support of our creative design team.
Because of all of this, the agency has also experienced steady financial growth. I’m proud to announce that, for the third consecutive year, Idea Grove has been recognized in the Inc. 5000. While some years have seen faster growth than others, our current 3-year growth rate is 59 percent—not too shabby! We are honored to be recognized once again by the Inc. 5000 and I hope, as we continue to work hard and deliver first-class work for our clients, that growth will continue to happen naturally.
Are you interested in achieving steady and consistent growth? We might be able to help with that.
