street_corner_logo_largeweb

Today I’d like to introduce you to a new member of the ADG family. No, it’s not a person or a new beer on tap, it’s a freshly minted content marketing service of ADG called Street Corner™. Here’s the elevator pitch:

StreetCorner™ is ADG’s take on content marketing. It’s a service we provide brands to help them launch and run a content marketing program from scratch or bolt-on to an existing program already in place.

I’m excited to unveil this today and while I’d like to gush about it for hours I will instead just throw down a quick Q/A here about StreetCorner™ and then turn you loose to see it for yourself.

I had the thought recently that there are at least a bazillion hashtags floating around out there in the Interwebs. It made me wonder what some of the top ones are…and so, this week’s Top 10 Tuesday was born!

#hashtags (it’s like Inception…)

Throwback Thursdays are still on top! I love Throwback Thursdays. It gives me a chance to see my friends post photos of themselves with mullets in the third grade and acid washed jeans as teenagers.

ADG Ranks Again on Inc. 5000 List for 2014

inc5000

ADG is pleased to announce that once again we have ranked on Inc.’s list of top 5000 fastest growing private companies in the U.S., our third time in the last five years. Out of the 57 companies in the greater Baltimore area, ADG ranks 4th in terms of growth in our industry.

The ranking was determined by growth in company size and revenue, factors we can certainly speak to. Over the past three years, ADG has seen a 226% growth in company revenue. We’ve also added 20 new positions (and toured through countless kegs of quality ale) in the process.

I’m truly proud of YOU… Our team members… Our clients… . You, of course, our amazing Creatives. Collectively, we all are the reason behind ADG’s growth and success.

I’d be grateful if you would you join with me in celebrating this achievement by toasting one another in the near term – and let’s plan to do a face-to-face “Cheers!” when we next gather together!

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/5000.
