In the latest edition of the Orange County Business Journal, Local Splash was named one of the Fastest-Growing Privately Held Companies in Orange County, California.  This is our third year to receive such an honor.

The list featured companies with annual sales of at least $300,000 for 12 months, and at least a 15% growth in revenue for the 12 months through June of 2013 compared to the same period two years ago.

While the average was around 40%, Local Splash showed a 50% growth rate.

This latest award goes along with our recent Best Places to Work in Orange County listing and the 4th consecutive year as an Inc. 500/5000 honoree.

We are proud of our team and our clients that make these achievements possible. Thank you for all of your hard work and support!

 

The Alzheimer’s Association (Alz.Org) works nationwide to fund research into finding a cure while providing care and support for those affected by Alzheimer’s. September is the World Alzheimer’s Month. Here in Orange County, landmarks, city halls and retail shops will be going purple to show their support. Local Splash will be painting our company purple for the month of September, leading up to the official September 23rd, GO Purple OC week.

Alzheimer’s is a disease, a type of dementia that affects memory, thought and behavior. It is a progressive disease, growing worse over time. More than 83,000 people in Orange County alone are living with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia, or are at immediate risk. The Orange County Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association currently serves only 26 percent of the affected population, leaving more than 60,000 people and their families without the care they need.

November brings the End Alzheimer’s Walk at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. The Local Splash team will be walking again this year. Think about forming a team of your own and joining in. Don’t live in Orange County? The Alzheimer’s Association is holding events nationwide. Check their website to get involved in your area. Join in the worldwide effort to EndAlz!

GO Purple OC will bring much-needed visibility to Alzheimer’s disease and rally the community to join us in efforts to provide help for those affected today and hope for a brighter tomorrow. Local Splash is proud to be part of the team. The goal is a world without Alzheimer’s!

Local Splash makes its appearance on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing private companies for the fourth year in a row! The list is the result of Inc.’s annual study encompassing the multitude of public businesses and hidden champions; niche technology firms, infrastructure providers, and B2B companies. By promoting the virtues of continual innovation, learning, and improving communication skills, Local Splash has sustained a high level of growth and success. We’ve maintained our place on the list through a team effort.

Search engine technology is the equivalent of a modern arms race, with tremendous resources and some of the brightest mathematicians on the planet working on a daily basis to improve internet search results. Companies like Google and Microsoft (Bing) are heavily invested in providing quality results for search inquiries, constantly updating their technology to weed out efforts to “game” the system. Most of this activity is conducted with a high degree of secrecy. As a result, Local Splash’s technical staff rarely has time to celebrate previous achievements, constantly monitoring, absorbing and implementing the latest changes to search engine optimization technologies.

Despite the challenges of the past year, including a physical move to a new location, Local Splash’s sales force has nearly doubled in size. A focus on improving the training process for new team members has resulted in a new hire’s successfully landing their first client before they even get to the floor. This confidence building methodology is paying fantastic dividends. At the same time, sales has worked hard to heighten our brand visibility and expand Local Splash’s outreach to the public with online profiles and a high degree of operational transparency.

When our clients deal with Local Splash, they are talking to real people who are interested in promoting THEIR business. Our client support department is tasked with fielding questions, providing answers and maintaining relationships. As our business grows, client support and operations have to develop new processes to improve communication, anticipate issues and find cost-effective solutions. These tests are an ongoing endeavor as technology changes and our client base grows.

Our place on the Inc. 5000 list indicates we’re meeting these challenges! Working together, Local Splash continues to experience a high degree of growth as a premiere search engine optimization service provider. From mom & pop shops to national chains, plumbers to pet stores, with a big serving of pizza parlors thrown in for seasoning, Local Splash helps businesses appear on the first page of local search results.
