Leaf And Vine Winery Marketing And Wholesale Providing E-Commerce, Event Calendars, Blogging And Social Media To Help Micro-Wineries Gain Exposure In Highly Competitive Market

Leaf and Vine Winery Marketing and Wholesale is a new company formed to help small boutique wineries gain wider recognition for their product in an industry dominated by corporate wine producers with huge marketing budgets and staff. Because so many small wineries have slight budgets and little to no staff to perform promotional or sales tasks on a consistent basis, Leaf and Vine offers plans designed to help micro-wineries gain exposure using inexpensive, online tools.

Earlier this year, the company launched one of those on-line tools, their e-commerce site SelectWinesOnline.com, specifically for boutique wineries that do not have the means to sell on-line. Client wineries simply provide the inventory, and SelectWinesOnline.com handles the rest – all transactions, fulfillment and shipping are processed by the site, which is fully compliant and licensed for wine sales to several different states. The site is constantly undergoing search engine optimization, and Internet traffic to the site is boosted by a paid search engine placement program, which results in SelectWinesOnline.com’s page one, top spot on Google and Yahoo searches.

In addition to the on-line sales tool that SelectWinesOnline.com provides for Leaf and Vine clients, the site also functions as a one-stop marketing shop. There is a blog that provides free marketing tips (with plans to allow client wineries to also post content), and an event calendar that promotes winery events to city, county and regional community calendars. That calendar, WineEventsNow.com, was launched one month ago, and because it is built on a social media-type platform, already receives over 700 hits a day. Lastly, winery clients benefit f r o m Leaf and Vine’s daily marketing efforts on their multiple Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Leaf and Vine Winery Marketing and Wholesale also offers web design, advertising and print materials design, and blog creation, social media plans, email campaigns and newsletters. Their marketing department and sales reps have many years experience in various gourmet food and leisure product industries. For a complete list of services visit www.leafandvine.com.

Internet-Based Advertising & Marketing Company And Its Core Network, Clickbooth.Com, Report Staggering 12,654.4% Growth For #5 Spot In The Country

Inc. Magazine has ranked IntegraClick, an online marketing corporation located in Sarasota, FL and its core network, Clickbooth.com, 5th on its annual list of the top 500 fastest growing privately-held companies in the U.S. The list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s entrepreneurial sector.

Technology companies, such as Intuit, GoDaddy and Oracle gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500. The company’s innovation for offering unique, customized online marketing solutions was also recognized by its number one position among the Inc. 500 list for Advertising and Marketing businesses.

“We are pleased to be recognized by Inc. – not only for impressive sales growth, but also because of our innovative business model which is entirely based on successful ROI delivery,” said CEO John Lemp. “It is proof that our model hits a sweet spot in the marketplace. In a tight economy, companies are even more focused on performance-based marketing opportunities. In the cost-per-action (CPA) model, advertisers pay only when the desired result is achieved – such as a sale. “This totally eliminates the marketing risk from the advertiser,” continued Lemp.

The 2009 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. magazine (available on newsstands August 17 to November 15) and on Inc.com, reported aggregate revenue of $18.4 billion — up significantly from last year’s $13.7 billion — and a median three-year growth rate of 880.5 percent.

The companies on this year’s list are also responsible for creating more than 55,000 jobs since they were founded, making the Inc. 500 perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the overall U.S. economy. The largest company on the list, flat-panel-TV maker Vizio, broke the $2 billion revenue mark. Complete results of the Inc. 500, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found on Inc.com.Despite the ongoing recession, the 2009 Inc. 500 offers a glimpse of the future of the U.S. economy.

“If you want to know which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. 500,” said Inc. editor Jane Berentson. “These are the most dynamic, fast-growth companies in the nation, the ones finding innovative solutions to problems, creating smart systems, and inventing products we soon discover we can’t live without. The Inc. 500 list is Inc. magazine’s tribute to American business ingenuity and ambition.”

The 2009 Inc. 500 measures revenue growth from 2005 through 2008. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of 2005, and therefore able to show four full calendar years of sales. Additionally, they had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent — not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies — as of December 31, 2008. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2005 is $200,000; the minimum for 2008 is $2 million.

IntegraClick Has Been Honored As One Of Florida’s Best Companies To Work For 2009 By Florida Trend Magazine

To qualify for consideration, all of the candidate companies must have been in business for at least one year and employ 15 people or more. The results will be published in Florida Trend’s August issue and online at FloridaTrend.com.

For IntegraClick, Florida’s Best Companies To Work For 2009, is a designation that is especially meaningful, given the number of companies who participated in the survey in this category. In the survey, a midsize company is one that employs between 50 and 249 people. Midsize companies in Florida vastly outnumber small and large size companies.

IntegraClick’s Director of Public Relations, Chastanna Taylor, says making the list was very meaningful. “Knowing that the midsize category would be the most competitive makes this achievement an extra bonus.”

Many companies located in Florida completed the two-step process to be considered for this designation. IntegraClick is the only company in the SW Florida region to be recognized in the midsize category.

All of the participating companies, including IntegraClick, were asked for information about their demographics, corporate philosophy, practices, systems, and workplace policies. The second part of the process involved company employees. They were asked to evaluate their employers and reveal whether or not they found their work environment to be a satisfying one. The results of the two surveys were added to give each company a final score by Best Companies Group (www.bestcompaniesgroup.com), who also administered the online surveys.

Taylor also states, “The key to our success as a company lies with our people. To be the best, we need to hire and retain the most qualified candidates available. Our managers are second to none, and they set the tone for how our business is run. The fact that our employees shared their positive impressions in the survey confirms that we are on the right track. We are proud of the fact that we have a world class team at IntegraClick.”

For a complete list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For in Florida, go to www.FloridaTrend.com/BestCompanies.

IntegraClick was formed in 2002 and since its inception has emerged as a leader in online marketing campaigns for advertisers and affiliates (publishers). The company’s exclusive CPA network, Clickbooth.com, was recently recognized as the #1 affiliate network worldwide and provides a one-stop service to its clients in the fields of advertising, publishing, technology and design.
