SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.--()--Elevate, Inc. (OTCBB: ELEV), today announced preliminary Q2 figures that reflect a 480% increase in sales over the previous quarter.
“September through November has traditionally been the slowest time of the year”
“It’s exciting to watch our customer base swell as we establish a local foothold in each of the markets we’ve opened,” says Wright Thurston, Elevate CEO. He goes on to explain: “A key component of our growth is a revolutionary referral program, which makes it possible for customers to earn free services for life, and other benefits, by telling their friends and family about Elevate. The growth we’re seeing is due in part to our ability to leverage our customers’ social networks in our marketing efforts.”
“September through November has traditionally been the slowest time of the year,” says Ben Ward, Chief Recruiting Officer. “When seen in that light, it becomes clear how compelling our referral program truly is. It is what makes Elevate different, both to our customers and our Certifiable Geniuses.”
Although Elevate officially opened sales offices late in the 2011 fiscal year, it was not until the beginning of the recently completed quarter that management authorized regular sales activities. Much of the growth that has been seen in the last three months can be attributed to referrals generated from existing customers, and not from massive staffing.
Says Bryan Ferre, Elevate CMO, “Elevate leverages a marketing model that shortcuts the traditional mass-media philosophy. Instead of spending big money on advertising to build a competitive brand ‘out there’, we spend a little money, in the form of incentives and free services, to create a dominant brand where it matters – between friends. Our marketing model is able to deliver growth, like the kind we’ve recently seen, with very little additional expenditure.”
Elevate provides data, voice, video, mobile and security solutions in 22 major markets through a network of independent Certifiable Geniuses. Please direct inquiries to Coby Bush at 801 918 9952, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
