THROWBACK THURSDAY: Solid Signal makes the Inc. 500

It’s always nice to be recognized. Solid Signal made Inc. magazine’s list of top growing companies back in 2007, and it was just the first of many industry accolades and certifications. It’s just one way that we know that we’re doing a great job serving our customers and it’s something we’re very proud of.

Since 2007, we’ve grown exponentially and we’re still working hard to make your experience better and bring you the coolest stuff!

Despite Challenges for Electronic Retailers, Solid Signal Makes the Inc 500 
Published on 09-09-2007 02:12 PM

Between the recent bankruptcy of Tweeter, losses and lay-offs at Circuit City, and other news, it is clear electronic retailing is a tough, competitive business.  A USA Today article from back in June discusses challenges – and opportunities – but does not even mention Internet electronics retailers and the niche they fill.

In contrast to many big-box stores and other retailers, Internet electronic retailer Solid Signal is experiencing strong growth in the industry by combining competitive prices, personal advice and hard-to-find products. 

Solid Signal helps professional installers as well as the average consumer find products and advice to create solutions to technology challenges. We provide extensive product information online, and allow customers to request personal recommendations. We also make it easy to call us – simple, but think of how many times you’ve tried to find a phone # on other websites. Because of this approach, Solid Signal has recently been named #183 on the Inc 500 list of the country’s fastest growing companies, with more than 1000% growth since 2003. See the full Inc 500 list at Small Business Ideas and Resources for Entrepreneurs.

As for the rest of the bunch, sales are expected to perk up later this year, according to the same article. Already September, the holiday shopping season will be here before we know it!
