What do you like best?
I enjoy working with my marketing coach, Mike Flynn. When we first started working together, he took the time to understand my specific business. He gives me actionable steps to help improve SEO for my website; advises me on running Google, Facebook and Instagram ads to promote my business; and offers tips on how to improve email messaging to increase engagement. Overall, Mike has made my life easier. I truly appreciate the opportunity to work with him on my business.
What do you dislike?
I was excited about the ability to send out email blasts from the Thrivehive platform. However, because I am unable to customize messages in the way that I would like, I continue to use MailChimp. In addition, the platform does not allow me to shorten tracked links. So after I create a tracked link in Thrivehive, I shorten it using bitly. Also, I set up social posts through Hootsuite because of the ability to schedule Instagram and Linkedin posts.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I signed up for ThriveHive because I needed to save time. I wanted to automate my marketing efforts and find a better way to track and respond to leads. I've been using the platform since December 2017 and my leads have increased from around 10 to 40 per month. I also love that I was able to categorize all of my contacts and target email messages to the appropriate group.
