Domainer Mike Mann Grabs Three Spots On Prestigious Inc. 500 List
Mann's SEO.com LLC, DomainMarket.com LLC and Phone.com LLC, were all recognized on a list of the fastest-growing companies in America.
SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 19, 2012 -- Serial entrepreneur and domainer Mike Mann founded and manages three companies on the 2012 Inc. 500 list. The list, which was released in August, recognizes some of America's fastest-growing companies.
This year, Mann's Phone.com placed No. 262 on the list. Two of Mann's other companies, DomainMarket.com and SEO.com, were ranked No. 292 and No. 491, respectively.
"I'm so excited to see all our hard work pay off," Mann said. "I hope it is the first time one businessman has had three companies on this prestigious list in the same year."
The publication began compiling the Inc. 500 list in the early 1980s to recognize the fastest-growing, privately held companies in America.
"My businesses are in unique market niches, but they all leverage premium keyword domains, which convert new customers better than comparable sites, and simultaneously get higher ranking in Google, a double bonus," Mann explained.
In addition to his entrepreneurial pursuits, Mann is also passionate about working for charitable causes. He explains in his book, "Make Millions & Make Change! Secrets to Business and Personal Success," that having a strong domain name is an important component to any company's success, crediting powerful domains as one reason businesses become successful.
SEO.com is an Internet marketing firm specializing in search engine optimization, a strategy used to improve website ranking in search engines like Google. DomainMarket.com is an online marketplace for quick acquisitions of premium domain names, and Phone.com provides small businesses with affordable voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) telephone services including convergent apps and award-winning customer service.
Mann said his real passion is helping charitable causes like Grassroots.org and its 6,000 members, as well as Make Change! Trust and ChangeTheWorld.org.
Mann is also currently hiring people to fill several positions for his next suite of new corporations. Career listings can be found at http://www.prohr.com/executives/.
"I'm always looking to start new, cutting-edge companies and expand our charities," Mann said. "As such, we require fresh people to help lead them to success. My new companies have a built-in network for support on day one from our family, but they also have access to innovative strategies from my book and from Best Practices Guide (BestPracticesGuide.com), that have helped guide all of our firms and charitable works."
Mann always stresses the importance of participating in charitable works.
"I have always believed that once your business has found success, you should share that success with causes that will benefit society," he said.
