SharpSpring Achieves 38% Year-Over-Year Growth in New Customers for Second Quarter

250+ Agencies and Businesses Select SharpSpring as their Preferred Marketing Automation Provider in Q2 2016

GAINESVILLE, FL – July 14, 2016 SharpSpring, Inc. (NASDAQ: SHSP), a global provider of cloud-based marketing technologies, today announced that 251 new customers signed up for its flagship marketing automation platform during the second quarter of 2016, up 38% over the same period in 2015. Annualized recurring revenue from the new customer additions totaled approximately $1.8 million.

“Our continued success in expanding our customer base was due to yet another quarter of penetrating the agency market and making more digital marketers aware of our low-cost, full-featured marketing automation platform,” SharpSpring CEO Rick Carlson said.

During the quarter, SharpSpring added 185 premium marketing automation customers through its North America sales team, with an additional 66 customers through its international distribution network.

“Now that both the sale of the SMTP business and the migration of customers off of our GraphicMail product are complete, our resources will be dedicated solely to the promotion and expansion of our core marketing automation offering,” added Carlson.  “We believe SharpSpring will continue to dominate the competition’s offerings due to our platform’s great value, flexible architecture, and easy-to-use but powerful user interface.”
