Get to work, Janet Scardino: The Knot’s newly hired president and chief marketing officer finds herself employed by a company that just missed its Q3 revenue and earnings goals. Online sponsorship and advertising revenue did grow at an impressive clip, however: up 32% year over year, far faster than at many small Internet companies, and gross margin and operating income increased strongly. EPS was hit by an increased tax rate. Release.

National Online Revenue: $4.5 million, up 25% y/y
