Develop a message that creates buzz and showcases the concierge-level service that CycleBar provides while showcasing CycleBar’s commitment to the Nashville community.
We developed a local media strategy targeting traditional media for the initial opening announcements and tapped top fitness, lifestyle and wellness bloggers and social media influencers to amplify the buzz through a private “fit-fluencer” workouts.
In addition to reaching individual consumers through media relations and social media efforts, we coordinated partnerships with dozens of local businesses, universities and other organizations to create a private ride program for their groups ahead of the opening.
Each launch strategy was customized to the individual market/neighborhood, whether it was The Gulch, Maryland Farms or Franklin.
The combination of more than 3.5 million media impressions and buzz from the “fit-fluencer” workouts provided successful grand openings for each area.
