THRIVE SERVICES USED
Geoforce is a top developer of cloud-based asset tracking platforms, such as satellite and cellular-based GPS tags, RFID systems and other wireless technologies, used by major operating companies to manage mission-critical assets and improve safety and compliance.
The company partnered with Thrive Internet Marketing Agency in September 2021 to boost its social media and SEO performance. Having seen no progress with other web marketing agencies in the past, it came to Thrive hoping for a more hands-on campaign management approach that delivers measurable results.
Since taking over the company’s digital marketing campaign, Thrive helped Geoforce generate a 360 percent increase in organic traffic year-over-year (YoY) and an 88.24 percent increase in ad clicks.
Thrive’s combined paid and social media efforts also resulted in a 121.08 percent increase in Instagram followers, a 352.1 percent increase in Facebook impressions and a 100 percent increase in LinkedIn followers.
