PHENOMINAL GROWTH FOR DIRECTORY ONE IN 2006 AND MANY IMPROVEMENTS ON THE HORIZON FOR 2007

Since the Houston Business Journal announced Directory One ranked as the Houston area’s number 1 website development, optimization and design firm, it’s been difficult for Philip O’Hara to find a spare moment. “It’s amazing, the move upward from number 19 last year to number 1 this year reflects many of the recent strides made by the company particularly with our streamlined website optimization practices and new and improved marketing packages.”

Our clients are high profile and in order for them to stay ahead of the competition, they must rank number 1 on the major search engines. Therefore, Directory One must maintain cutting edge practices and philosophies to meet their needs. It’s obvious when you’ve come across a Directory One client because you’ll find them located in the number one position, something we’re very proud of here at Directory One. Our strategy for success is working and we plan on improving upon it in 2007. With a client base that has more than doubled in 2006, we are afforded a unique ability to take advantage of some exciting opportunities in order to better serve our existing clients.
