-In First Qualifying Year, SEO Innovation Leader for Small Business Acknowledged As One of Inc.’s Top 500 Fastest Growing U.S. Companies, #8 in Utah-

In the five years since its founding in 2009, growth has been the greatest constant for Internet marketing company Boostability, a company that specializes in local search engine optimization (SEO) for small businesses.

As an expert in Internet marketing, Boostability employs organic methodologies for helping small business customers ensure that their products and services appear at the top of the Internet’s search engine results.   They effectively act as an extension to their customers’ marketing teams.

With more than 500 employees and plans to hire another 50 by the end of the year, the company has grown to occupy three offices across the Wasatch Front since its founding and shows no signs of slowing down, according to company founder and CEO Travis Thorpe.

“We are extremely honored to receive this recognition, and we look forward to serving thousands of additional small businesses in the years to come,” Thorpe said.

The company prides itself on being a highly sustainable company and on having earned a reputation in just five years as one of the most trusted SEO partners in the world. The company’s current growth exceeded Thorpe and his management team’s expectations, he says.

“Because an increasing number of consumers are using the Internet to find products and services, virtually every company can benefit from online marketing, even on a small scale,” Thorpe said. “We’ve tailored the services we provide around that notion. Having begun our own endeavor as a small and regional business ourselves, we are highly honored to help other small and entrepreneurial organizations succeed.”

To that end, in addition to his role at the helm of Boostability, Thorpe is becoming increasingly visible as an industry columnist and thought leader, and recently began writing a column for small business that appears bi-weekly on Inc.com.
