Great Work by Maria Williams of the Growthink Market Research team!

"What else can I say but, WOW! I am absolutely blown away by what was compiled for my market research, impressed I mean. How could I have EVER produced such a compilation? Not easily I can assure you, and now that you have completed it, and with only a brief perusal I can see the depth and clarity of the information. I suspect you have some pretty nifty computing power, but how it was done is irrelevant, I cannot thank you all enough. Very fine work!

A very grateful start-up owner,

Client Success - Studiovox Signs Partnership with Sundance Group

StudioVox Partners With Sundance Cinemas to Expand Opportunities for Creatives With New Professional Network

StudioVox

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2014) -StudioVox, a Los Angeles-based online network for creative professionals offering a platform for visual artists, photographers, interior designers, performers, filmmakers, musicians and other artists to network with likeminded colleagues, agents, companies and fans, announces its partnership with Sundance Cinemas Galleries, of Robert Redford's Sundance Group. StudioVox serves as the submission and curation platform for artwork to be exhibited at Sundance Cinemas' fine art galleries in West Hollywood, San Francisco, Seattle, Houston and Madison, Wis.

Unlike LinkedIn and traditional social media sites,StudioVox fills the gap as a credible site for showcasing creative talent, connecting and collaborating with others, finding work, building teams and hiring talent. StudioVox allows creatives to promote themselves by creating a comprehensive profile with which they can share their portfolios and work.

"Our partnership with Sundance mirrors our purpose. It offers our community of artists a chance to be seen and have their art recognized by a brand built on creating opportunities for new voices in the arts to be heard, as well as its continuing commitment to quality in the arts," says StudioVox CEO and Co-Founder Amanda Slingerland.

StudioVox' platform offers instant promotion and exposure, with the additional abilities to schedule and invite people to events and house personal blogs, as well as soon-to-be-added capabilities that will streamline the ability for users to push their StudioVox content out to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn profiles and sell art, music and merchandise directly from the site.

"Our new relationship with StudioVox is a gift. It's a gift to us, as we are now able to draw upon their fantastic connections in the art world, and a gift to the artists, as not only will they have shows at Sundance Cinemas, but StudioVox will be enhancing the way the shows are marketed, thusly giving the artists much deserved acknowledgement," says Nancy Klasky Gribler, Executive Vice President of Marketing, Sundance Cinemas.

The partnership is being celebrated with a private party at Sundance Cinemas in West Hollywood on Oct. 9, where StudioVox artist and Los Angeles-based abstract painter Lori Dorn's artwork is exhibited through November.

To submit your artwork for consideration for exhibition at the Sundance Cinemas Galleries, peruse artists' portfolios and creative works, or look for talent, visit StudioVox.com.

Great work by Marci Haire of Growthink's Expert Market Research Team!

Awesome client testimonial for work done by research analyst Marci Haire! Great job!

"I clicked through to the Growthink website with some trepidation - most internet promises are only virtual.

On completing the process - after watching an engaging video (if you like to read!) - I was surprised at how easy it was to acquire (download) the Business Plan. A minor glitch connecting with the Market Research section was quickly resolved as there was a real person monitoring the web stuff. Another surprise. And when the report I asked for came through, it really came through! I had expected something pretty generic, and not australian specifically. Wrong on both counts. Delighted on all other counts.

Thanks Growthink - you made me think I could grow."
