We asked Jake Hay of PopShorts to tell us about his company's experience working with ThinkLA to reach the advertising, marketing and media community in Los Angeles. Here's what he had to say.
ThinkLA has been an invaluable community both for myself and for our company, PopShorts. Since PopShorts joined ThinkLA a little over three years ago, we have grown our business by over 700% and have added new diversity to our portfolio of clients. We attribute a great deal of this newfound success to ThinkLA, as the majority of our new clients have come from within the L.A. advertising community. The networking at these events has been instrumental for us in both client acquisition and client retention.
For our employees, we've taken advantage of the many professional development programs that ThinkLA offers. Our CEO has been so impressed with ThinkLA that he decided to give back by joining their mentor program back in January of 2018. He has since helped two motivated women who were new to the community with their career aspirations, professional development and networking needs by sharing his personal and professional experience, knowledge and skills via one-on-one mentor sessions.
ThinkLA sets a standard for the LA advertising community and professional communities as a whole. It has been an honor to grow alongside this organization and within this community. We are grateful for the incredible people we’ve met through ThinkLA, the expertise and ideas that have been so openly shared, and the unconditional support we’ve received. On behalf of myself and the rest of PopShorts, we want to give a huge thank you to all of the ThinkLA staff. We wouldn't be where we are now without you!
Thanks, Jake! ThinkLA is grateful to all of our members like you and PopShorts who make our community great by giving back and collaborating with us. We wish you continued success!
