The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino's Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

"To be on this list for the second time is very exciting, and shows just how effective what we are doing is for the clients we serve," said Adwerx CEO Jed Carlson. "In just one year, we've doubled our reach inside the real estate industry and we are continuing our expansion to other businesses who need digital advertising to grow their marketing reach."

To date, Adwerx has delivered over 13 billion ad impressions for real estate agents, brokers, financial services providers, mortgage lenders, and other businesses across the web's most popular websites, mobile apps, and social media platforms. Over 115,000 real estate agents have made Adwerx an essential part of their marketing program; top brokerages including RE/MAX have adopted the Adwerx Automated Listing Advertising Program for their agents around the U.S. Headquartered in the American Tobacco Campus, Adwerx has 75 employees and continues to develop new products designed to create lasting connections online that lead to increased sales and revenue.

Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.  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
