IRVINE, Calif., April 4, 2019—SmartBug Media™—a leading Intelligent Inbound™   marketing agency that assists businesses in generating leads, increasing awareness, and building brand loyalty through inbound marketing, digital strategy, design, marketing automation, and public relations—today announced it has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles by Comparably.

Winners of the 2019 Best Places to Work were determined based on a combination of workplace statistics in core culture categories, including compensation, leadership, professional development, work-life balance, and perks and benefits.
