Are we allowed to blow our own trumpet?
In June, BRW singled out Booktopia as Australia’s fastest growing online book retailer. Not a bad effort for a band of brothers who have only been in the book business four years.
Well, we’ve just got the whisper that come October 29, we will be profiled as one of BRW’s Fast 100.
The Fast 100 ranks companies with up to 200 staff according to their average annual turnover growth over 3 years. To make the cut last year, you had to have achieved sales growth of at least 43% for three years in a row, although the average annual sales growth was 89%.
I can’t wait to see the rankings within the Fast 100 this year, but in the meantime, it is pretty exciting to make the cut. And while we all beaver away like mad things, really what this is about is happy customers. I know we don’t always get everything right, but many, many thanks to those of you who have had a good Booktopia experience! It’s you guys that are driving this.
