The National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), the nation’s premier certification body for fitness professionals, was recently recognized with two awards at the annual American Marketing Association, Phoenix Chapter Spectrum Awards. The categories won were Broadcast – Radio and Broadcast – Television.
NASM earned awards in both categories for the use of a creative media testing strategy, a first for the personal training certification and fitness education industries. The radio and television spots focused on enticing offers, specifically a no cost, 14-day trial of the NASM Certified Personal Training (CPT) program. The advertising campaign generated nearly 20,000 leads and contributed to 40 percent year-over-year revenue growth.
“We have exceeded our expectations and business goals over the past year, due in large part to the innovative approach we take with our marketing. It’s an honor to be recognized for our broadcast initiatives,” said Andrew Wyant, president of NASM.
On the heels of a successful 2013, NASM has continued to make strides in expanding its marketing initiatives, by launching its first ever, national infomercial. The spot aired in multiple markets on cable networks throughout March 2014. For more information, please visit http://www.nasm.org/.
