Inc. Magazine Unveils 35th Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 500/5000

 

Edufficient Ranks No. 58 on the 2016 Inc. 500, 3rd fastest growing company in NJ

with Three-Year Sales Growth of 4,579%

 

NEW YORK, August 17, 2016Inc. magazine today ranked Edufficient, located in Paramus New Jersey as NO. 58 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

 

“Our rapid growth is a testament to the quality and experience of our management team & dedicated staff, our consistent growth is dependent on our ability to help our clients grow.” Said Tom Ferrara CEO of Edufficient.

 

The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

 

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

 

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, TX. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as best-selling author and strategist Tony Robbins, SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, Cornerstone OnDemand founder, president and CEO Adam Miller, Marvell Technology Group director and co-founder Weili Dai, and New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan.

Our objective is to facilitate long-term sustainable growth for colleges and universities through intelligent media buying, stringent compliance, detailed vendor management, innovative technology, drill down analytics, progressive methodology and dedicated account management.  By serving as an extension of a client’s internal marketing team, we share their enrollment and start objectives and work hand in hand with them to achieve their budgeted short and long term goals.

Methodology

The 2016 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2012 to 2015. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2012. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2015. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2012 is $100,000; the minimum for 2015 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.

Are you optimizing opportunities on your landing pages and lead forms

Can you add video or other media to landing pages

 

 

 

It surprises us how few schools take advantage of whats actually available to them which can help move the needle on new student acquisition.  Lead forms and landing pages for example are a prime example of an area of improvement most routinely ignore.  The results of the survey question regarding adding functionality to existing and new vendor lead forms clearly shows that there are more opportunities for school to optimize interaction, performance and activity.  Call your vendor or agency and get working on it, you will be happy that you did.
