Fantastic Media was appointed by UK National Governing Body for Weightlifting to drive sales of their educational offering.
The team were appointed by British Weight Lifting to significantly boost the online sales of their course offering as it prepared for significant future growth. As the National Governing body for over 100 years, Fantastic really bought into the company ethos of “strong is not a size”. Their aim as a national governing body is to re-invest back into the sport of weightlifting and to fund it instead of profiting off of it.
On-boarding through the agency’s Insight process, the Fantastic team worked closely with BWL to understand what they had tried before. We then undertook a full website, CRO, and digital audit before implementing our digital strategy. Our goal was to understand what their audience engaged with and move quickly away from what they didn’t.
From there on, we were able to put in place a paid search and social strategy which drives increased levels of engagement, revenue and return on investment.
