Launch Partners

Are you interested in reaching new customers through Social Media, but don't know how, and you don't have the time to learn? To solve that, we have created an auction process for each city, county, state, region and nation to take care of that for you. But it gets better than that. If you are the winning bidder, we will use 75 percent of your winning bid to fund the Social Media campaign that we set up and take care of. So, the higher your bid, the more exposure you will receive on Social Media.

And it gets even better. We will also create and place a graphic ad on CitySpokes that links directly to your website in the same Social Media advertising locale. And the auction bidding starts at only $40 for a month, with a Buy It Now Price of only $100. Consequently, if you are the winning bidder, we will spend from $30 to $75 of your winning bid on Social Media ads where you will be able to share information about your business as our Local Launch Partner. To do this, we use the demographic data from your target audience to place Social Media ads, and since CitySpokes appeals to everyone, your target audience works for us as well.

Once a site user clicks on our Social Media ad, a summary message about your business and a summary message about CitySpokes will be displayed, followed by buttons to either Join CitySpokes or to Sign In if they are already a member.

All auctions are scheduled to end on the 20th of the month preceding the advertising month to allow time to prepare for the advertising. However, if a business bids $100, the Buy Now price, the auction ends immediately and we go to work. The minimum bid is only $40, and if that is the winning bid, about $30 will be spent on Social Media advertising, however, if the winning bid is $100, the Social Media advertising increases to about $75, resulting in substantially more Social Media impressions. Finally, there is no long-term commitment as the auction you win only covers the partnering Social Media ads for one month, the same month your graphic ad will be displayed in CitySpokes.

To answer this "knock knock at the door of opportunity," you need to do the following:

  1. If you have not already joined CitySpokes, do so and add your business -- it's free, and there are lots of additional opportunities there to promote your business for free as well
  2. From your Business Dashboard, click the "Our Launch Partner Auctions" button
  3. Select the city, county, state, region or the United States where you would like to promote your business
  4. Enter your bid, and then continue to be the highest bidder at midnight on the 20th of the proceeding month for which you want to advertise. Alternatively, you can invoke the Buy Now option by bidding $100, and the auction will end immediately
  5. Pay the invoice for your winning bid.
  6. Complete the online form that describes your target audience demographics
  7. Create and enter a 200-word or less marketing message for why customers should select your business for their Goods & Services
  8. If you choose to do so, replace our generic graphic ad by uploading your own. If you would like to have a different graphic ad displayed on each day of the week, you will need to upload those additional graphic ads
