Catapult Creative Media Inc. has been named one of the fastest growing companies run by LSU Alumni. This prestigious award is based on Catapult’s verified past three years of revenue.
Owners David Maples and Virginia Huling are honored to be receiving the award at Louisiana State University’s Tiger 100, to be held at L’Auberge Casino Hotel October 23rd.
To receive the award, the company must operate according to the LSU Stephenson Entrepreneurship Institute’s (SEI) criteria. Catapult is proud to announce that they uphold these values.
Beginning with Drift
In 2007, David Maples and Virginia Huling saw an opportunity in Louisiana’s market for a company that could provide beautiful and functional web design to the businesses of the Gulf coast region. In order to do just that, the two started Drift Web Design in Baton Rouge with the purpose of enhancing brands and providing businesses with a better return on investment. They believe that efficient web design practices, coupled with great online marketing, strengthen a company and develop loyal customers.
Drift was developed to work with all manner of industries, including family entertainment, local restaurants, and multimillion dollar businesses. Drift quickly gained recognition and awards for website and advertisement designs. David and Virginia discovered, however, that their clients wanted and needed additional services outside of a stellar website, other things that would assist them in keeping their customers happy. So, the pair set out to become experts in those other areas and provide more than just websites to their clients.
Once they started to offer more, “Drift Web Design” became a fairly limiting name for the company. Drift was, thus, transformed into Catapult Creative Media, which has since successfully launched hundreds of brands. The team, then, expanded to include professional writers and designers, with the goal of turning online marketing into a solution that works for your business.
At present, Catapult provides services, including inbound marketing, the creation of white papers, ghost blogging, public relations services, and social media marketing. To expand the range of services and products that they offer to their clients, Catapult is also a certified Google Partner and has certification with Bing and Microsoft.
Today, Catapult is continuously advancing online advertising by following responsive design standards, ongoing search engine optimization and providing data driven marketing to companies looking to rebrand or grow.
