|The idea of SK8TL LLC is to provide a skateboard park for the fast growing Metro Atlanta community that reflects the city of Atlanta in an environmentally conscious way. Atlanta, GA is currently the largest city in the United States not to have a skate park within its city limits. Our goal is to offer an authentic, eco-friendly and accessible concrete skate park that is able to accommodate both casual and professional skaters. By doing so, we will successfully convert an empty twelve-acre lot into scenic and productive green space. The park will offer inter-changeable street courses, to keep the venue fresh for the skaters. In addition, a standard concrete bowl will also be featured.
|SK8TL marketing strategy will be based on several different methods included in the Guerilla
Marketing Strategy. Some of these strategies include but are not limited to the following:
• Sponsored Events: partnerships with companies will enable us to throw events around
the Atlanta area promoting the SK8TL brand. This will be a pivotal form of fundraising.
• Advertisement: using the internet for advertisement will be very beneficial. Using
examiner.com, twitter.com and current.com will allow us to stay on top of trends and
also provides free advertisement.
• Media: partnering with Central Atlanta Progress Development will cover local radio,
newspapers and magazines. We will also be featured on Dew Tour, MTV, ESPN
360 and Fuel TV through Cochiese Films.
• Community Involvement: Using local schools as a platform to distribute newsletters,
petitions etc. will increase awareness
