In 2020, Ideas Collide celebrates its 15th anniversary. We celebrate this milestone year along with some of the most innovative and successful private companies in the country. We are proud to announce that our agency has been named on the prestigious Inc. 5000 List, including the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our 15th year and we are thrilled to be the fastest growing marketing agency in Scottsdale, Arizona.
“I am extremely honored to be included on the Inc. 5000 list for the first time,” says Matthew Clyde, our President + Founder. “The core of our business formula is to give to our team, give to our clients, and give to our community. This recognition validates our unique culture and the tremendous efforts and innovation delivered by our team. We believe that our investment in giving is directly connected to the award-winning work we deliver for our clients and partners.”
Ideas Collide Continues to Grow
Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.
We have always had a growth mindset at Ideas Collide. “Our commitment to new emerging marketing-technology, developing culture focused brands from the inside-out and enriching the customer journey both in the B2B and B2C space has been an exciting journey,” says Matt. While we have seen growth across all aspects of our agency, we are seeing incredible innovation and demand in a few key segments.
Innovative solutions are at the core of any growing business. We embrace new marketing technologies such as intelligent chat nurture, which enables real-time customer engagement powered by AI. These technologies are changing the marketing scene and disrupting the status quo, driving unprecedented results for our clients.
Ideas Collide is a culture-first agency. From senior leadership to junior contributors, we believe in setting a tone for collaboration, transparency and innovation. Matt Clyde has presented on creating successful cultures at the national level and over the last few years, we have developed comprehensive trainings as well as end-to-end culture branding for our clients. True culture looks beyond the surface. It requires you to dig to the core of your collective purpose. Cultivating an empowering environment is vital for the successful operation of any business and, more than ever, customers are paying attention to companies that create powerful business impact and stand for inclusive principles that better the community.
We are in the Age of the Algorithm. We have access to more consumer insight than ever before, giving us unprecedented ability to speak directly to each customer. But plundering the troves of information is not so easy as it sounds. It takes a real expert to find treasure in the research. Then it takes careful targeting and content crafting to reach those opportunities with precision. The age of “spray and pray” is over. We believe in a more effective approach.
Developing an effective customer journey is as much art as it is science. Our team of digital analysts and content strategists are focused on leveraging the right message on the right channel. We work across every type of content, from social to web and over-the-top video content, we have done it all. Want proof? Check out our recent work to see a wide array of strategies and custom creative.
When We Grow, You Grow
We believe that “rising tides raise all ships.” As our team has grown, so have our capabilities and the services we can offer our clients. We are a diverse, extremely talented group of professionals and that’s by design. Our full-service approach to partnerships empowers us to integrate across borders, working with several or every aspect of your business to unify and modernize your marketing strategies.
We are extremely excited about this recognition from Inc. Magazine, and you should be too. As we grow to explore new avenues, we promise to bring those opportunities to you in strategies that help you grow, just as we have.
An Exclusive, Diverse Group of Innovators
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
