FORT LAUDERDALE, FL –Blue Interactive Agency was recently ranked number 37 in the South Florida Business Journal’s 2011 Fastest Growing Companies. The list, consisting of the 50 Fastest Growing companies in South Florida, highlights companies with the highest growth in revenue within the region.
In the article, the South Florida Business Journal asked each company leader to share some advice on how to grow rapidly. Peter Brooke, CEO of Blue Interactive, suggested surrounding yourself with those that believe in your business success, philosophy, and vision. Brooke also reminded business owners to stay focused on what made their company great in the first place, and to continue to grow within those ideals and beliefs.
The success that Blue Interactive Agency has experienced could not have been achieved without a focus on community involvement. On May 20, 2011, through Blue’s social media marketing efforts, Marine Industry Cares Foundation’s annual Spin-A-Thon raised an impressive $100,000 for Kids in Distress, a South Florida agency that works to prevent and treat victims of child abuse.
Recently launched websites include Decorator Industries, a leading supplier of window treatments and bed coverings to the hospitality industry. President and CEO Bill Johnson said, “It was a pleasure working with Peter and Blue Interactive. They kept the project and my team moving forward to the finish line. We’ve received a lot of positive feedback about the new website from both customers and competitors. This can be seen in the increased traffic and requests for quotes we get each week from the website. The website has become an integral part of the sales and marketing plan and we are constantly making changes to improve our web presence.”
Another recently launch site is Inspired Generation, whose focus is making young adults aware and connecting them to opportunities to serve, lead, learn and travel. Executive Director Christina Dombrowsky stated, “Our dream was to have an online community, our vision boards, and Blue Interactive Agency helped make that a reality. This is just the beginning of a great relationship!”
