Our Solutions

Full Blast Creative collaborated closely with the COSPA team to craft targeted marketing campaigns tailored to the Calgary market.
 The initiative commenced with the development of a new website and the implementation of an upgraded ticketing system, aimed at boosting booking numbers. The team then concentrated on driving traffic to the site by establishing a comprehensive brand identity that resonates within the community. Leveraging organic social media channels, they effectively generated interest and heightened awareness, while deploying email campaigns to engage and re-engage past pool goers. Additionally, the Full Blast Creative team strategically utilized the website to expand COSPA's subscriber base. Within the first two weeks of the site's launch, email subscriber numbers surged by an impressive 63%. Subsequently, paid advertisements were introduced to enhance visibility and specifically target key communities and demographics. By developing strategic campaigns, the FBC team successfully generated awareness, increased web traffic, fostered membership subscriptions, and promoted COSPA as a whole.
