Local Marketing Solutions Group, Inc. Named to Inc. 5000 for Fourth Consecutive Year – Ranks at 801

Make it a four-peat for Local Marketing Solutions Group, Inc. (LMSG).

For the fourth consecutive year the comprehensive marketing solutions provider has made the Inc. 5000, a list of the nation’s fastest growing private companies. LMSG ranked 801 on the 2021 list – up from 1,314 on the 2020 list – based on a three-year growth rate of 607 percent.

The list by the business publication Inc. represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—independent small businesses. Microsoft, Vizio, Intuit, Timberland, Chobani, Oracle, Zappos.com, and many other well-known brands first gained public awareness through the Inc. recognition.

LMSG provides clients with full marketing services execution capabilities, including award winning creative and digital services supported by a suite of proprietary marketing content management and automation software platforms geared to streamline corporate marketing execution processes through local sales and marketing channels.

“LMSG continues its strong growth, and that is due to our people and solutions, and the clients who continue to partner with us,” said Al Croke, LMSG President and CEO. “Receiving this recognition for a fourth consecutive year shows that we continue to execute successfully, and the fact that we broke into the top 1,000 and jumped more than 500 spots tells us that we are being successful in helping businesses effectively reach their respective audiences. We are committed to our mission of helping clients deliver relevant content through a suite of services and by whatever medium resonates with their customers.”

“Despite our success, we are not content and will continue to add emerging technologies and content channels to help deliver the best possible results for our clients.”

According to Croke, “Our latest significant growth partnership is with MyCommunity.Today, an innovative, hyper-local, social interactive network with a unique Mobile App As A Service (MAAS) offering. This service integration will truly enhance our current and future merchant clients’ local brand awareness, ultimately resulting in increased merchant sales and revenue along with centralized consumer savings opportunity.”
