Social Media Marketing
How a fitness celebrity succeeded with Thrive’s social media marketing services
Nancy Anderson Fitness wanted to spread awareness, increase their following on Instagram and Facebook, increase participants in their monthly challenges, increase online program sales and help with new product launches.
They chose a custom “Maximize Results” package from Thrive Internet Marketing Agency, which included organic content development and a strategic paid advertising campaign. The package also included regular strategy recommendations, inbound engagement monitoring, as well as monthly analytics reporting.
