Growth Specialists for 7- and 8-Figure Businesses


Unlike most agencies, the founders of Thrive Marketing® have seen inside 1000s of businesses and we’ve also started, bought and streamlined 8 of our own businesses and successfully sold them or set them up to produce sustainable and predictable results. These businesses include:

  • A consulting business
  • Multiple services businesses
  • Two physical product ecommerce businesses
  • Two digital products ecommerce business (information and digital designs)
  • A media/blogging and digital publishing
  • A franchise business (brick and mortar retail)

We are not newbies cutting our teeth on your dime. We already know what works and what can produce a profit for you. We treat your marketing with the same urgency and respect that we do our own. Thrive Marketing® is a boutique marketing agency. We work with a limited number of clients at a time, allowing us to give our clients more individual attention, more thoughtful ideas and deeper strategy than they would receive at a larger agency. For this reason, many of our clients refer to us as their “Marketing Department” (rather than their ‘agency’) as we literally become a part of their team.

Christie


Co-Founder & Chief Architect of Strategy

Masterminding strategies that fuel high growth companies is in Christie’s DNA. She started in digital marketing 18 years ago in 1999, when the Internet was just getting started. A few years later, she launched Thrive Marketing®, which for the past 14 years has been providing list building and traffic generation services, helping 1000s of businesses grow quickly. This company has sold over $1 Billion dollars of products and services for its 7-, 8- and 9-figure clients. They helped one client achieve a Top 75 ranking in the INC 500 while they helped another grow from ZERO to $15MM in 9 months.

An in-demand speaker and consultant, Christie has been asked to sit on the boards of multi-million dollar companies as well as speak at business conferences, private mastermind events, and online events. Invite her to speak, guest podcast or guest blog here.

Jared


Co-Founder & Chief Maximizer

A born entrepreneur, Jared Turley knows what it takes to grow a business. Prior to joining Thrive Marketing in 2007, Jared has bought and streamlined several businesses and successfully sold them or set them up to produce sustainable and predictable results.

This strong business, marketing and operations background enables him to effectively strategize with C-level executives and business owners on how to dominate their markets and create strategies that will grow their market share while meeting budget requirements and increasing profitability.

Team Work Makes the Dream Work


For 14 of the past 16 years of marriage, Christie and her husband Jared have worked side-by-side 24/7 (and they say they STILL like each other!). During that time, they started and launched 7 other businesses – some are very successful, some were sold, and some were, as they say, great learning experiences. So, they don’t just spout off theories – they know exactly what to do (and what NOT to do) to help businesses grow quickly.

Thrive Marketing is fueled by a team with more than 120 years of combined strategic marketing and technology experience with high-growth businesses. All members of our staff are senior level (we each have 10 years of experience or more). This allows us to get to the final result more efficiently. Again, we are not newbies cutting our teeth on your dime. We already know what works and what can produce a profit for you.
