Digital Monetization Pioneer Ranks 30, Underscoring the Value of Multi-Channel Monetization
NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — PowerInbox, the trusted audience engagement and digital monetization partner for publishers and marketers, today announced Inc. Magazine has named it as the 30th fastest-growing private company in America on its 37th annual Inc. 5000 list.
The recognition is based on the company’s 7500% growth over the last three years with a revenue run-rate over $30 million. PowerInbox was also ranked by Inc. 5000 as number 2 in the category of top software companies, number 4 in the category of top New York City companies and number 4 in the category of top New York companies. Over the past year alone, the company has seen a 51% increase in new customers, including the addition of marquee publishers like Bonnier, Crains, HarperCollins, Hearst, New York Magazine, Palm Beach Gazette, ReachMobi and Seattle Times, driven by surging demand for its unique email-based content personalization platform.
“It’s an incredible honor to be recognized among such an elite group for our success, which is a direct result of our team’s relentless dedication to serving our customers,” said PowerInbox CEO Jeff Kupietzky. “I’m extremely proud of the fact that we’re also profitable, which is unique among venture-backed companies that often focus on revenue growth at the expense of profitability. This gives us a much more stable foundation and positions us for aggressive growth and innovation.”
PowerInbox’s advertising and content optimization system helps publishers and brands deliver highly relevant, precisely targeted native and display ads and sponsored content to subscribers across email, web and push notifications, as well as other emerging channels. By using email as a unique identifier to target individual subscribers, the company’s personalization solution is more precise and reliable than browser-based cookies or device targeting, which can be thrown off by device sharing among multiple users.
The PowerInbox monetization platform works at any scale, currently delivering content to 95 million unique monthly subscribers across 600+ publishers, using artificial intelligence technology to learn users’ likes and dislikes and continuously refine targeting. It also boasts its own Advertising Network, enabling brands to reach new audiences and eliminating the hassle and expense of direct sales for publishers.
“This growth and recognition are no-doubt driven by PowerInbox’s focus on innovation and meeting publishers’ needs,” said Brian Griffin, co-founder and CEO of digital publisher Jungo Labs. “I’ve worked with other providers and they simply can’t match PowerInbox’s level of service, flexibility and responsiveness. We’ve seen our earnings grow 200 percent since we started, with zero effort, all thanks to their algorithm optimizing for our subscribers’ palate.”
In addition to increasing demand for multi-channel monetization capabilities, PowerInbox’s nationally ranked growth is a direct result of its focus on lean operations. Unlike other tech startups that invest in opulent office spaces or a high-overhead sales bench, PowerInbox invests heavily in product innovation and serving its customers’ needs. The entire team works remotely, which cuts down on operating expenses and gives the company a level of agility and in-the-field presence that better serves its customers and maximizes profitability.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
The Inc. 5000 awards will be presented at the 37th Annual Inc. 5000 Conference and Gala October 17-19, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas.
