Finding a fit within CrossFit

There was a problem though—Precision Nutrition didn’t believe in influencer marketing, at least not traditional influencer marketing.  They’d too often seen fitness influencer be pay-to-play, providing endorsements for products that they never used or believed in just to get paid. That kind of inauthenticity didn’t align with the deep connection Precision Nutrition builds with each and every one of its customers. That’s where #paid came in.

“What stood out to me was #paid’s focus on creator media, where you have folks with a voice, and a platform, and an authentic connection to their audience, working with a company with a similar voice and audience and values, creating really authentic win-win collaborations”

-Eva Tang, Head of Marketing Innovation

The promise of creator media was enough to convince Eva and the team to give #paid a try, but it was #paid’s ability to function as an extension of her team that was most exciting.  “The #paid team really plugged in to our team, helping with the on-boarding, the coordination, the optimization with all of the campaigns that we ran,” said Eva, continuing, “It was something we couldn’t have done without them.”

The organic results for Precision were great. The creator posts had over 90,000 story views and a positive sentiment score in comments 350% above benchmark.   However, it was #paid’s Paid Social Whitelisting that amplified the campaign’s best content to drive significant acquisition for Precision Nutrition.  

As part of the Social Whitelisting, #paid ran over one hundred and fifty ad tests to determine the top performing creative and messaging for Precision’s Campaign.  As a result, #paid was able to achieve an overall CPA 10% below target, driving 1,300+ signups, and a campaign ROAS above 4:1.

Since then, they haven’t looked back. After just 60 days on the platform, Precision Nutrition inked a long-term subscription, increasing their spend with #paid by 326%.

The results have been fantastic.  We’ve seen our CPA and ROI come in well above the bar, and we’ve seen thousands of leads over the course of the last 2 months with #paid.”

One of the pioneers of online fitness, Precision Nutrition’s blend of coaching, education, and software has helped over 100,000 people get into “the best shape of their lives.” They built those numbers being experts at digital marketing to trainers and fitness enthusiast.  When they turned their attention to CrossFit though, they knew they needed to add to their marketing toolbox.  That’s when Eva Tang, Head of Marketing Innovation said, “what about influencers?”
