    SkoolLive LLC

    July 2015 – September 2016(1 year 2 months)Greater San Diego Area

    SkoolLive currently offers national brands and companies direct access to school campuses all over the United States. Now, we would like to extend an opportunity to local based businesses to participate in our Digital Advertising Program and support their local schools. Our network of digital, interactive, 7-feet tall Kiosks allow for a way to engage and interact with students, parents and faculty within your community. You will be able to receive maximum exposure for your business, far exceeding the level of reach, a banner on a sports field or a logo on a scoreboard could ever attain. Our digital kiosks allow you to implement Call-To-Action initiatives into your marketing campaigns. Our on-campus digital kiosks provide more value for your business than you will get from any other traditional forms of media. One of the reasons businesses chose to advertise through SkoolLive is because we give back to the schools we work with. All the revenue we generate from media placements and sponsorship is shared with the schools that ran those placements. At SkoolLIve, I helped forged new partnership opportunities across retail, advertising, technology, sporting, events and public schools verticals in North America to construct SkoolLive’s competitive market analysis for sales, product, engineering, and c-suite functions.
