Recovery Brands 3-Year Case Study

The site needed more traffic, more authority, and more social media attention. We provided all of that and more, helping them stand out in a highly competitive niche. Our results in the first year were astounding.


But we didn’t stop there…

As our success together grew, our team became an increasingly integral part of Recovery Brands’ marketing and growth strategy, allowing us to work on an increasing number of campaigns as the business expanded. Over three years we created and promoted 90+ campaigns that aligned with the client’s core brand mission.

If you’re willing to push the envelope and think in terms of “there is no box,” then you want to work with Fractl.” – Jeff Smith, CEO at Recovery Brands, LLC

  • Contests, quizzes, and widgets
  • Kinetic typography

Attention-Grabbing, Innovative Content That Educates and Reduces Stigmas

Our mission across all campaigns continued to evolve, and we continued to focus educating audiences in order to decrease the stigma around addiction. This would not only help those in need of treatment, but also educate people struggling to understand or help their loved ones with addiction.

In addition to being educational and authoritative, our campaigns needed to spread awareness and stimulate interest around serious topics. We also knew in order to garner significant attention the content needed to evoke strong emotions. By pairing compelling design with emotional hooks and an innovative approach, we found a winning recipe among publishers and audiences while staying true to our core mission.

“I can honestly say that almost every response I get compliments the interest factor of the topic as well as applaud the design and layout of a project. We cover all of our bases here, and it definitely shows!” – Chelsea Freeburn, Senior Media Relations Specialist at Fractl
