Her Spirit Swimming Testimonial
“Working with Ventura has been a game changer for us. Whilst we knew alot about our target market we had a lot to learn about how to engage our audience in a congested digital space. They're super smart, friendly and have helped us understand how to drive growth at a price we can afford. We see Ventura being part of the business for a long time to come."
Holly Woodford
Co-Founder, Her Spirit


Ventura worked closely with Her Spirit founders Holly and Mel to build a digital strategy that would grow their user base at the lowest cost possible. Together, Her Spirit and Ventura developed five personas inspired by current users of the app and used this model as a foundation to build demographics and psychographics of Her Spirit users which continued to evolve throughout the campaign. Social media advertising strategies were built, managed and implemented by Ventura, alongside conversion rate optimisation to convert ‘Freemium’ users to ‘Premium’, resulting in the creation of a 30-day email automation series to nurture new Her Spirit members.

Conversion Rate Optimisation

Ventura started with social listening analysis to understand the key qualitative and tangible motivators for joining a community such as Her Spirit and then utilised the insight to create a 30-day email automation series design to nurture new sign-ups. The automation was interest and interaction triggered, meaning users received email content aligned with their interests and motivations. The results were the highest amount of paid user conversions outside of a peak event month to date.
