Locker Room Media, a leading provider of fully integrated digital marketing services has been selected to provide search engine and affiliate marketing services for online retailer of high quality golf equipment, 118 Golf

Locker Room Media will use its experience in online sports retailing with brands like the FA, ECB, Littlewoods and to maximise commercial success for 118 Golf and elevate the company’s competitive standing in the market.

By managing 118 Golf’s affiliate network, Locker Room Media will maximise the effectiveness of their online activity by increasing conversions and reducing cost per-click (CPC) while also extending the reach of 118 Golf’s range of golfing products to a wider market by increasing traffic to the online store.

Along with our other strategic partners, we see Locker Room as a key part of our ongoing success in becoming Europe’s leading online golf retailer.”

“We see enormous potential in 118 Golf and are excited about having the opportunity to help maximise the return on their marketing budgets while growing their business,” said Justin Brookfield, MD of Locker Room Media. “Our expertise in digital marketing coupled with our experience in online sports retail puts us in the perfect position to help 118 Golf to achieve their objective of becoming the market leader over the next two years.”
