On a meteoritic rise since its inception in 2014, Marketopia was cited by Inc. as having scaled its revenue at an impressive 2041% growth rate. The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique sector of the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment – its independent small businesses.

“It’s an incredible honor to be recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in the nation. This accomplishment shows what’s possible when you bring talented people together with a mission to help clients achieve their dreams. It’s an honor to lead Marketopia and to be selected by tech firms worldwide to help them grow,” said Marketopia CEO Terry Hedden.

Marketopia CMO Andra Hedden added, “We are humbled to be part of such an elite group of fast-growing organizations. Making the Inc. 500 by delivering world-class marketing products and services to the technology industry is an absolute privilege. Solving our clients’ needs and watching them grow in today’s competitive business environment keeps us innovating into the future.”

Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.

“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 annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held Oct. 17 to 19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort in San Antonio, Texas.

Will Marketopia See You Next Week at Channel Directions Live?

Marketopia is excited to be a sponsor for the upcoming Channel Directions Live event in Scottsdale, Arizona on September 12 – 14. Put on by Penton Technology, the event brings together more than 140 IT solutions providers, VARs, MSPs and CSPs for three days of real-world strategic content designed to take a deep dive into market forces, business models, emerging opportunities and more. It’s also an opportunity to recognize the best and the brightest—and Marketopia is glad to help honor this year’s recipients of the MSP501 award.

According to T.C. Doyle, Senior Content Director of Channel brands at Penton, “The dynamics of the IT channel are changing thanks to disruptive innovation—significantly, broadly, permanently.” That’s why events like Channel Directions Live are so important. They give members of the IT services community a unique opportunity to come together in an intimate environment to share information, develop relationships and learn new ways to grow their business.

And, that’s what Marketopia is all about—sharing knowledge and resources that make an immediate impact on your business.

The event tees off with a golf tournament, keynote and reception, followed by two days of hands-on sessions. CEO Terry Hedden will be moderating a session as well as serving on a panel. CMO Andra Hedden will be holding an interactive lunch discussion that offers engaging, yet informative, ways to rate how well you’re doing in areas such as lead generation, marketing, public relations, social media and much more.

Marketopia’s Terry Hedden Named as One of ChannelPro’s 2016 20/20 Visionaries

Managed IT services marketing & sales firm leader among 2016’s most influential channel pros

May 16, 2016—ST. PETERSBURG, FL, (Newswire.com)—Marketopia, an IT marketing agency specializing in innovative and powerful demand generation for Managed Service Providers, announced today that CEO Terry Hedden was added to ChannelPro’s 2016 list of 20/20 Visionaries—a list that includes ChannelPro’s 20 most influential SMB channel players and 20 savviest channel pros. It’s the second year running that ChannelPro set out to identify the 20 wisest channel players in the vendor, analyst, and consulting communities and the 20 most farsighted channel pros in the partner community.

As the former owner of a successful managed services practice, Hedden once spent so much time answering questions about his company’s best practices, he decided to make sharing them his full-time job. Today, Hedden runs not one but two channel-oriented consultancies: Cloud Guru, which helps channel pros transition to cloud computing, and Marketopia, an outsourced marketing services agency for VARs and MSPs.

“Marketopia and Cloud Guru are all about being agents of change and guiding profitable transformation within the channel,” says Hedden. “I’m truly honored to be recognized by ChannelPro as one of the most experienced, insightful experts in the SMB channel—it’s industry confirmation that we’re definitely making a difference.”

Hedden sees two trends coming on fast. First, “MSPs are learning how to increase margins by bundling in services around cloud offerings to form true end-user solution. ” His second prediction is continued consolidation in the managed services partner community, leading to increased profitability for the fewer, large businesses that emerge.
