Darren Cleveland is one of the first people I met when I started selling domain names. He’s always given me good advice and been a resource to me when I’ve sought his opinion on business related matters.
You may know Darren from his domain industry related partnerships with Sahar Sarid and Jeff Bhavnanie. Darren currently serves as President of FuneralHomes.com, and he is also President of Boynton Beach-based City Advertising, an advertising agency for small businesses.
Congratulations are due for Darren’s company, as it was named one of the fastest growing businesses in the country, according to a press release this morning. Inc. magazine ranked City Advertising #189 in its annual list of the 500 fastest growing companies. City Advertising was ranked as the 7th fastest growing company in South Florida.
According to the Inc. magazine report, City Advertising experienced a growth rate of 1,595% and recorded $2.2 million in revenue. The company employs 16 people.
The revenue isn’t huge, but income minus expenses make the company profitable! That is, not spending more than what you earn.
Some (if not all) of the directories are very, very simple and plain. But I assume people are paying for it and they are getting visitors.
