Sports Endeavors wanted to improve eCommerce conversion and customer engagement from its SMS marketing channel. Since Thrive Commerce had successfully optimized other paid marketing channels for Sports Endeavors, leveraging Thrive’s hidden offers for SMS campaigns was an easy choice.


For over three years, Sports Endeavors had relied on Thrive Commerce’s intelligent Promotions Suite to drive shopper engagement, targeted promotions, and conversion rate optimization for all its brands.

Like many eCommerce companies, Sports Endeavors’ family of brands had much more to communicate than could be included in a single SMS message. They loved their SMS platform’s ability to drive targeted traffic to their pages but lacked the ability to personalize content in an effort to maximize conversion for visitors arriving from SMS campaigns.


Thrive Commerce’s easy to use platform helped Sports Endeavors create and publish public and hidden landing pages with any type of targeted offer or promotion, which dramatically improved SMS marketing channel performance.

“One of Thrive Commerce’s most unique promotions tools is Smart Pages, through which shoppers view our public and private promotions in one place. We were already maximizing organic search intent with Smart Pages for and But now, we wanted to drive our SMS traffic to Smart Pages as well,” explains Juliana Young, Senior Digital Experience Manager at


By supplementing their existing SMS messages with a second link for shoppers to access all coupons and deals, Sports Endeavors drove awareness of the primary SMS Offer and additional web traffic to their Deals page.

“The SMS link to Smart Pages is easy for our customers to understand and streamlines the customer experience. As a bonus, the customer can click to add the promo code to their cart automatically,” adds Juliana.

Additionally, by leveraging Thrive’s hidden landing pages, Sports Endeavors created a curated list of Offers for SMS channel eyes only.

In addition to tangible ROI benefits, Thrive Commerce’s client support and promotions reporting were a real value-add.
