iProspect San Francisco Doors Open, Serving West Coast Search Clients

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, August 7, 2006 - iProspect, the Original® Search Engine Marketing Firm, today announced the official opening of its San Francisco location. The new office provides comprehensive search engine marketing services to iProspect`s West Coast clients, and also serves as a base for the firm`s West Coast sales operations. It is also strategically co-located in a building with its Isobar U.S. sister agencies: Ammo Marketing, Carat Fusion, and Freestyle Interactive.

"Operations are now in full swing," said Brian Kaminski, Managing Director, iProspect San Francisco." The team is in place, the boots are on the ground, and we are actively serving our clients. Our team is genuinely excited to be here, as it affords us the opportunity to work even more closely with our clients - something that both our team and our clients value."

An iProspect veteran of seven years, Kaminski is responsible for overseeing iProspect San Francisco operations and for delivering comprehensive search engine marketing services and superior strategies to the firm`s West Coast clients. Given the search engine marketing firm`s legacy for producing results, Kaminski expects the new San Francisco office to grow rapidly.

"While we have a full team in place today, consisting of both paid and organic search specialists, as well as salespeople," remarked Kaminski, "given our forecast, we expect to expand the team to accommodate our anticipated growth; so yes, we are hiring!"

Founded in 1996, iProspect has experienced meteoric growth over the past ten years - twice netting inclusion on the Inc. 500 and Deloitte and Touche Fast 500 lists. The firm has established itself as the premier player in the search engine marketing arena, and today works with some of the world`s largest and most successful online brands.

"We are excited about iProspect San Francisco," said Robert Murray, President of iProspect. "While our growth rate warranted the westward expansion, it was the opportunity to be in our clients` backyard that drove us to open this office."

Murray continued, "Search engine marketing is an iterative and strategic endeavor that requires a team effort between vendor and client. iProspect San Francisco not only provides our West Coast clients with immediate access to our team and their expertise, it also facilitates the close relationships we foster with our clients. It is these hand-in-glove relationships that allow us to continue to produce outcomes that translate into improved business results for our clients."

But beyond improved proximity to its West Coast clients, iProspect will also be rubbing shoulders with its Isobar U.S. sister agencies. Acquired late 2004 by Isobar, a division of UK-based Aegis Group, iProspect is now part of a global network of leading digital marketing agencies. As a result, the new San Francisco search engine marketing office will be co-located with Ammo Marketing, Carat Fusion, and Freestyle Interactive.

"In addition to being immediately accessible to our West Coast clients," said Fredrick Marckini, CEO and Founder of iProspect, "the fact that our San Francisco office will be co-located with our Isobar sister agencies is an added benefit for our clients, as it provides increased opportunity for integration between iProspect and these world-class digital entities that are part of the Isobar network."
