If you felt a rumble yesterday amongst the search marketing ranks, it was probably caused by the news that four well-known marketing companies announced a merger into one new agency known as BlueGlass Interactive.
The companies coming together are 10e20, Search & Social, Brent Csutoras Inc., and SecondStep Search. In a blog post announcing the merger, BlueGlass CMO Chris Winfield says that the companies had already been referring work amongst themselves for years.
A news release about the merger says that, in addition to offering client services, BlueGlass also plans to offer free and subscription-based marketing tools.
With the merger, BlueGlass Interactive says it now has offices in four cities and 40 employees, plus combined annual billings of $10 million.
