about

As the entertainment industry's gold standard for LGBTQ market outreach, the Karpel Group has implemented campaigns for some of the most culturally relevant feature films, music releases and television series and specials since the company's inception in 1997. Our team has proven quite successful at targeting other niche groups and the mainstream market as well.

 

The Karpel Group is chosen again and again because of our ability to create the campaigns that motivate targeted groups to act on behalf of our clients. We know how to ensure that the launch has that ripple effect - the viral connection needed to produce results. Fewer marketing dollars are needed to produce a higher return because we drive your customers to amplify your message. 


The Karpel Group will provide the vehicle to motivate your base - or the base you wish was yours - to buy. We welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can work together to achieve your goals.
