With each passing year, Coalition Technologies continues to reach new heights and set new records, and 2014 was without a doubt our most prosperous year yet. In 5 short years, our company has grown from a small, one-man operation to one of California’s leading online marketing agencies, and our rate of growth has accelerated considerably just in the last 12 months. Here are a few of the key milestones from the past year:
February – Let’s Get Creative with Bigcommerce
Coalition Technologies has been a Bigcommerce partner for years, but in February, we launched Convert, our very first original Bigcommerce theme. Designed with SEO and conversion optimization in mind, this stylish and responsive theme has proven extremely popular among Bigcommerce users.
April – Coalition is Movin’ On Up
In April, we moved out of our original offices in Marina Del Rey and into a new building in downtown Culver City. The vast increase in office space has allowed us to accommodate more team members and work more productively, and it doesn’t hurt that we’re within walking distance of most of Culver City’s best restaurants and cafes.
May – More Fun with Bigcommerce
Our CEO and Director of Digital Strategy paid a visit to Bigcommerce HQ and delivered a seminar to the Bigcommerce Success Squad, on the topic of search engine optimization myths. This allowed us to further solidify our relationship with the e-commerce giant, while learning the ins and outs of their business.
June – There is No ‘I’ in Team – But there are Plenty of Resumes
Since June, our team has been growing by leaps and bounds. In less than 6 months, we have hired and trained 36 new employees, and we continue to recruit every single day. Our employee retention rate has never been better, and the CEO continues to emphasize that we have a stronger and more qualified team than we have had at any point in our company’s history.
August – We Have Liftoff
August was an enormous month for site launches. Our team successfully built and implemented new sites for a wealth of important clients including AH Capital, All Seasons for All Reasons, Filter Element Store, Tri-Star Electric, and Q-See. In fact, you might say that summer 2014 was the summer of site launches. Between July and September, we completed 10 launches in total. That’s almost one per week!
October – 5 Years in Business
In October, Coalition celebrated its 5-year anniversary. It’s amazing to look back on how much we have accomplished in the 1,825 days (give or take a day) since we first opened our doors to clients. Of course we celebrated the anniversary in style, with fine wine and copious amounts of Italian food at C & O Cucina in Marina Del Rey. As Frank Sinatra once crooned, the best is yet to come.
November – No Trampling Required for These Black Friday Sales
With so many e-commerce clients, of course we had to take advantage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday madness. We implemented holiday shopping strategies into our SEO and PPC campaigns, and several of our clients experienced record-breaking sales over the weekend following the Thanksgiving holiday.
December – Plenty of Reasons for Holiday Cheer
The month isn’t even over, and we’re already seeing some impressive accomplishments. One of our clients, renowned photographer Gray Malin, was featured on The Today Show, and another of our clients, The Art of Charm, surpassed 200,000 monthly unique visitors from organic traffic, which is more than 10 times the traffic they were achieving when we began working with them.
