LetsLaunch – Crowdfunding for Local Business

Developed and managed Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google campaigns for LetsLaunch. Monthly customer acquisition growth rates reached 100% or higher. We grew so much that LetsLunch was acquired in two years.

LetsLaunch was a crowdfunding site for local businesses who found me through word of mouth. Unique to this engagement was the opportunity to create the marketing strategy and campaigns from scratch. We did customer persona research and spoke a lot about brand strategy before developing ads. After the campaigns were launched, we adjusted them daily and added new creatives weekly. We constantly tested but didn't let us slow us down, which is why I was able to achieve my highest growth rates with them.
