Chattanooga’s New SMS Mobile Marketing Company Click, Click, BOOM! Moves To New Location

Thursday, January 9, 2014

Chattanooga’s new mobile marketing firm, Click, Click, BOOM!,  announced its move on Thursday from Co.Lab, the city’s mentor-driven start-up accelerator, into its new location downtown. The company’s CEO, entrepreneur Susanne Burnham, said the growing business will celebrate with a Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening event Thursday, Jan. 16, beginning at 2 p.m.

Click, Click, BOOM! is a full-service mobile marketing company that provides creative strategies and marketing tools for businesses to deliver promotional messages directly into the hands of their customers. Clients’ mobile marketing campaigns are created from CCB’s multi-channel internet-based platform allowing them to launch SMS text message programs, create and promote mobile apps, and integrate their email and social media.

Having partnered recently with a major Chattanooga-based tech company, CCB is positioned for further growth. Ms. Burnham said the business has tripled in the last three months, and has added several customer service and IT positions to accommodate client needs. Plans call for the addition of 50 more jobs locally, and to expand nationally within the next two years.

Mike Bradshaw, co-director of Chattanooga’s Co.Lab, said “Click, Click, BOOM! is a model of what we want our accelerator companies to achieve.” According to Mr. Bradshaw, CCB’s new partnership makes it one of Chattanooga’s top home-grown companies to watch in 2014.

It was Ms. Burnham’s experience in the mobile marketplace and the tremendous growth of the industry that inspired her to develop Click, Click, BOOM!  She cites industry statistics that show mobile devices are the most effective way to reach customers now and in the future. Consider these 2013 statistics originally published by DigitalBuzzBlog.com:

  • 91% of all people on earth have a mobile phone
  • 56% of people own a smart phone
  • 50% of mobile phone users, use mobile as their primary Internet source
  • 80% of time on mobile is spent inside apps

“People want to get information on their mobile devices quickly and simply,” said Ms. Burnham. “That means businesses need the power to reach their customers the same way. Our name says it all.  We help our clients instantly deliver their promotional messages straight into the hands of their customers in two clicks – and boom! They can watch their business grow.”

She said the most recent statistics show that 97% of mobile phone users read their text messages within three minutes of receiving them. Ms. Burnham’s company works with businesses in all stages of developing their marketing, and pays particular attention to assisting them with the creation of responsive websites and mobile apps. “We multi-task, we want instant gratification, and we want it yesterday!”
