B2Launch Involvement

The asteroid-mining company engaged B2Launch to develop a suite of marketing assets to announce a deep space exploration mission on a very tight timeline.


Rebecca is an all out marketing machine. We hired her as a consultant for a major marketing program spanning several months with a hard deadline. Rebecca formulated our audience personas, drafted scripts, storyboards, coordinated video shoots, managed a website redesign and most importantly kept the entire project on-time and on-budget. She was a perfect force multiplier when we needed it the most. The most incredible part of her work was her on-boarding time. We are a HIGHLY TECHNICAL, engineering-centric business with a complex customer base. Rebecca was able to fully assimilate our mission, culture, brand, and customers in about two weeks, something that normally takes half a year.
