Digital Market Media Receives 2022 SBA Outstanding Business of the Year

Digital Market Media (DMM) is the recipient of the 2022 Small Business Association (SBA) Outstanding Business of the Year designation for the central California region. The distinction is one of several awards and achievements the inbound call lead generation company has received in the past 12 months.

DMM provides media buying, advertising, inbound call generation, exclusive lead generation, and live transfer calls. Since its founding in 2016, the San Luis Obispo-based company has served and retained many Fortune 500 companies. Achieving 173% employee growth across 30 states within 12 months during the global pandemic, DMM has emerged as a leading work-from-home employer.

“We have perfected the work-at-home model by pioneering technology adoption and fostering growth from within through our Leadership and Development Training Program,” said Tom Carolan, Chief Executive Officer at DMM. “Being a servant leader, my team-first approach empowers employees and provides the runway for them to make decisions and lead.”

On the business review website, 91% of employees reported they would recommend DMM to a friend. Carolan credits the exceptionally high rating to his company’s ability to balance work and life while providing a tremendous financial opportunity for at-home workers. These features of DMM employment led to its rapid expansion, particularly during the pandemic.

From the beginning, DMM was built to be a 100% remote work-from-home opportunity. They have grown from 30 employees in 2019 to 140 employees in 2020 while having less than a 3.0% debt-to-revenue ratio on the balance sheet. The company’s goal is to continue adding to the team and providing clients with the highest quality leads to reach $50 million in sales by 2025.

“As the business leader, I can say my proudest achievements are the achievements of our team. At DMM, we invest in our employees and provide an extremely fertile environment for professional growth,” said Carolan. “We possess an uncanny ability to identify exceptionally gifted employees and draw out talents and skills they didn’t even know they had.”

Carolan’s role at DMM led to him receiving SBA’s 2022 Small Business Person of the Year award.

Other awards and achievements DMM has recently received include:

— SBA Most Resilient Business of the Year 2022 – Central California

— Ranked 1083 on the 2021 Inc5000 Fastest Growing Companies List

— Ranked 78 on the 2021 Inc5000 Fastest Growing Companies List in the Advertising and Marketing category

— Ranked #3 on the 2022 Blue Book Global’s Top Pay Per Call Networks

— Voted Best Pay Per Call Marketer of the Year by Invoca 2022

DMM is currently hiring top talent for their virtual call center and offering high-intent leads to companies in insurance, financial services, and other industries. They are also seeking partnerships with publisher affiliates to contribute to their exclusive lead generation initiatives.
