RTOWN made waves in Kamloops last week at our official grand opening. The Commodore Grande CafÃ© & Lounge was buzzing with many local business owners excited to meet the team and learn more about the future relationship RTOWN has with local business in town.
The evening was an introduction to RTOWN's digital marketing solutions and the passionate team behind it. Our local Digital Media Strategist, Cristina Ostapovitch, opened with a few words about her journey so far with RTOWN:
â€œI declined the opportunity a few times before finally saying yes. I was worried that Kamloops might not be ready for these very innovative digital solutions. Then our local newspaper shut down. Customers were literally calling to see if there was another option for them other than traditional media. I made my decision right then and there and I was so thrilled I did. Not only was Kamloops ready, but they were waiting for a digital marketing company like RTOWNâ€. â€” Cristina
Our CEO, Luke Aulin, who grew up in Kamloops, made the trip up from Vancouver for the occasion. Luke spoke about his transition from intrapreneur to entrepreneur and how our rapidly growing start-up stays true to their mission, vision and core values.
A talking point of the night was RTOWN's Loyalty App. Business owners were eager to learn how to develop a strong program that staff loves to talk about and one that keeps customers coming back for more. Our team was pleased to let guests know that our soon to be released eBook 101 Loyalty Program Ideas will be the perfect toolkit for success.
A business card draw kept guests at the evening bustling. The prize was a 60 second promotional video from our talented production crew. Huge round of congrats to the lucky winner, Nikolina Ruzic of The Plaza Hotel.
Colin Lyons of Lyons Landscaping had some awesome things to say about his experience so far with RTOWN:
"I hired RTOWN to do the job for me, because that's what they do best. I continue to run my businesses effectively without worry about missing a beat on my social media account. Their team has been an awesome addition to our marketing efforts. " Colin Lyons.
To cap off the event, a very spirited question came from an audience member who asked "Am I the only person in the room who hasn't heard of RTOWN?" If you feel the same way, we invite you to get in touch.
