Evanston, Ill (PRWEB) February 20, 2014
SIM Partners (http://www.simpartners.com), a provider of local and social marketing automation technology, today announced USA Taekwondo (http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Taekwondo) selected SIM Partners to establish, expand and maintain a local digital presence for the more than 750 USA Taekwondo locations nationwide.
USA Taekwondo is the National Governing Body for the sport of Taekwondo in the United States and serves as the lone entry way for athletes hoping to qualify for the USA Olympic Taekwondo Team. USA Taekwondo member clubs are located throughout the US and serve as the recruitment, education and training centers for current and future USA Olympic team members.
“This program will make it fast and easy for athletes interested in learning and practicing Taekwondo to find their local USA Taekwondo club,” said Bruce Harris, CEO of USA Taekwondo. “USA Taekwondo member clubs provide the best instruction and training in the sport, and their digital presence should reflect that. SIM Partners’ team and technology is the perfect match for increasing online visibility for each of our member clubs.”
SIM Partners will utilize the Velocity technology to create a strong digital presence for each USA Taekwondo member club. Each member club also has the option to expand the effort to include additional online optimization to improve their visibility in local search results and online directories.
“Increasingly, consumers turn to the Internet to find and research businesses in their local communities; if a business doesn’t show up in the local search results that’s a lost opportunity,” said Jon Schepke, CEO of SIM Partners. “With Olympic enthusiasm in full swing, now is the perfect time to capitalize on peak interest levels. Providing USA Taekwondo member clubs with an optimized digital presence will help them capture that interest and convert it into more athletes joining the sport.”
SIM Partners’ platform, Velocity, is used by more than 25,000 businesses and is an automated and scalable way to achieve success in local online marketing.
