Catapult Creative Labs Celebrates First Anniversary with Two-Dozen New Clients and Outstanding Creative Portfolio

Boulder, CO (April 19, 2017) – Catapult Creative Labs, Active Interest Media’s (AIM) in-house marketing services agency, marks its first anniversary with a growing portfolio of campaigns created for two dozen new clients including a complete content and public relations campaign for Grand Banks Yachts’ new yacht launch, and a complete content marketing program including video, native content and event activation for Four Seasons Los Cabos at Costa Palmas Residences. Catapult has also developed the National Reining Horse Association’s Pro Trainer custom magazine, Outer Reef Yachts’ custom print and digital magazines, and Deer Valley Resort’s creative campaigns.

Catapult taps into AIM’s deeply talented team of content producers, writers, social media experts, marketers, storytellers, and filmmakers for targeted custom content, ad creative, social strategy, video and TV production, lead generation, event activation, research, data services, and more. With access to AIM’s 39-million niche consumers across its five divisions, Catapult delivers clients outstanding creative and return on investment.

Bertram Yachts, the classic American brand with a rabid following, hired Catapult in 2016 to rebrand and launch its first new fishing boat built in many years. After an extensive brand audit and market research, Catapult created completely new ad creative, native digital and email content, a custom promotion series exclusively for VIP customers, a three-year business plan, premium videos, and event activations.

Catapult was also recently hired by the National Ski Areas Association, a trade association for ski area owners and operators. Deliverables for this marketing campaign around ski safety included ad creative and signage for distribution through print, digital media, and resorts, plus branding using #RideAnotherDay. A hard-hitting but not sensationalistic video was also produced to grow awareness.

“Catapult eliminates the middleman for brands who want to create authentic dialogues directly with their ideal customers,” said Jonathan Dorn, AIM’s Chief Innovation Officer and the founder of Catapult Creative Labs. “Through the expertise of our editors and the immediate connection to AIM’s audiences, we don’t need to go searching for the right words, images, or amplifiers. We just walk down the hall.”

In addition to Bertram Yachts and and the National Ski Areas Association, Catapult’s other new clients include The Balsams, Scentlok Technologies and many more.
