Sports Marketing-Event Coordination InternshipBookmark This
Launch Local, Inc
1282 Trumbull Ave
DescriptionLaunch Local represents top entertainment venues such as Major League Sports, Award Winning Restaurants, High End Day Spas, the best in local Golf Courses as well as distinguished Hotels, Resorts, Casinos, and Amusement Parks both locally and nationally. Ineffective traditional forms of marketing and the rising cost of advertising with radio, TV, newspaper, and social media have companies suffering financially. However, statistics show that most new customers tend to come from grass roots, word of mouth references vs. the other common forms. Launch Local’s specialty is creating word of mouth marketing campaigns that are local, community based, outreach programs where we package and present our clients unused inventory, by recycling it and pumping it back out in the community at 90% off. Our mission is to generate real world solutions where the client, company, and customers are all better off for having taken part with this “win, win, win” strategy. A unique synergistic effect takes place, and this is what separates us from our competition.
