Being able to learn and create a brand’s personality and growing together makes a great connection with the consumer. We were able to gain over 6,000 qualified fans since inception and are growing.  Social Thrive used a plethora of our marketing services to do this including: blog writing, consistent and thorough social campaigns and networking initiatives.

Forecaster 121

A boutique style condominium building. Forecaster 121 combines modern finishes and amenities with historic architecture. They offer world class service that is close to everything Boston has to offer in a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. Social Thrive was able to increase traffic to Forecaster 121’s website with 81% of traffic coming directly from our Google and Social Media ad campaigns. When we began the project, Forecaster 121 had less than 20% of their units purchased. We are elated to report all units have been sold since. Paid ads allow brands to get granular with their audience ensuring the right message is being show to the right people at the right time.

Elevated apartment living. Offering elegant amenities and a sophisticated living environment in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Enjoy many of the building’s features year long from a new fitness center to the heated pool and sundeck.  Another brand Social Thrive had the pleasure of working with from their inception; The Royal Belmont is a full service client utilizing our expertise in all areas of digital marketing and public relations. When Social Thrive began working with The Royal Belmont in April of 2018, they had only a few units leased. In just over a year working with us, they had leased every single unit. What’s not to love about that?!

It’s so important to us that our clients love the results they see when using our services. If you’d like to get started on your success story, contact Social Thrive today. We’d make a great pair!
