A digital marketing company is growing in Bloomington. Hanapin Marketing LLC plans to add up to 14 employees over the next two years, continuing a streak that included 23 new hires last year.

Most of the agency's current 60 employees are located at its downtown Bloomington office. Hanapin says demand for its paid search, paid social media and display program services is driving the growth. Since its founding in 2004, Hanapin says annual revenue has increased by double digits nearly every year.

Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton says "we are pleased to see one of Bloomington's leading technology companies continue to thrive and grow here in town. Hanapin is a great example of what we hope to see over and over again here in Bloomington - a locally grown startup becoming successful and creating opportunities for our city's great tech talent."

New digital advertising and administrative positions are slated to open up throughout the year. Hanapin is considering future expansion options that the company says could include a larger footprint in Bloomington. The company offers pay-per-click, e-commerce, remarketing, conversion rate optimization and lead generation services, as well as mobile and social advertising expertise. Hanapin has been offered up to $150,000 in conditional training grants from the Indiana Economic Development Corp.

Hanapin is considered a leader in the pay-per-click industry and hosts annual Hero Conferences, which focus on the PPC industry. Hero Conf Los Angeles is set for April 18-20 and Hero Conf London will be October 23-25.

    • What the Fit!?

      Good fit in our work, relationships, and, yes, shoes – brings energy and joy into our lives! I recently bought a new pair of shoes. They were very snug, the salesman assured me they would stretch because of the material. I was a little skeptical, but I bought them anyway. This made me think about how shoes also provide some fun clues to assess good “fit” in work and relationships. Even stellar communication and conflict skills won’t make a bad fit feel good.
