the challenge

Lofty campaign goals and a tight deadline

In November 2022, Orangetheory’s small influencer marketing team ran a month-long campaign to capture leads and promote brand awareness. They aimed to work with at least 20 creators and accumulate no less than 1 million impressions. With lofty goals and a tight deadline, the team needed a way to communicate with all creators efficiently, customize deliverables and payments for each partner, and track campaign ROI.

the goal

Building a team of brand-aligned storytellers

The primary goals of Orangetheory’s influencer marketing program are to expand its reach to new audiences and build its brand reputation. To accomplish that mission, Orangetheory zeroes in on brand-aligned creators already familiar with the studio. Orangetheory leverages each creator’s unique strengths to produce content that is natural to them and tells their fitness journey in their own authentic voice.
