LEAP to Double Its Office Space by End of 2006

by: lfi in News

Success begets growth, and that goes double for LEAP.

Literally.

Beginning July 1, 2006 the Louisville-based interactive agency will begin renovations that will double the company's office space from 5,000 to 10,000 square feet.

Co-founder Daniel Knapp expects the project to be completed by the end of the fourth quarter. He thanked LEAP's clients for helping the business continue to grow.

"We're excited about the business growth and thankful for the incredible clients that make it possible," Knapp said. "It's gratifying to see our clients finding real value and measurable results with LEAP's interactive marketing programs and services."

Since moving into its Linn Station Road offices in October 2002, LEAP has added 12 full-time, permanent positions. It plans to add four to six full-time employees over the next 12-months, as it meets the needs of clients that want not only to enter, but to thrive in, the growing interactive marketplace.

Besides its long-established strength in website creative services and web-software development, LEAP is also experiencing significant growth in its New Media Services group. Services in this category include traffic and lead generation, e-commerce engine optimization, pay-per-click and pay-per-call campaigns, affiliate network development, local (city, state) search marketing programs, online news release management, online promotions and contents, blog / forum or "word of mouth marketing" campaigns, and online media buying, management, and optimization.

"The interactive marketplace is widely untapped by Louisville businesses, but as that changes, companies are experiencing the benefits of direct, measurable, one-to-one web interaction with their customers," Knapp explained. "LEAP works to bring proven ideas from our global brands to the Louisville business community, ensuring that clients perform at a local and national level."

Reese Design, an architectural firm based in Louisville, will handle LEAP's office redesign.
