Sleep technology, mindfulness apps, health trackers, plant-based everything. The wellness market is evolving. In fact, people are spending more on health and wellness than ever before, the industry now reaching $1.5 trillion and growing 5-10% each year. In this growing space, amping up your digital strategy, leveraging data, and catering to the changing needs of your individual consumer is critical to growth and relevancy.

But it’s often easier said than done.

That is why we have created a resource guide for health & wellness start-ups to learn how to best market their health and wellness brand to their target audience. As your business grows, you are likely to require an even deeper understanding of your consumer to develop the most effective marketing campaign, to demonstrate scalability to potential investors and to better allocate your resources (people, time, capital). This is the stage where Compass Marketing can provide the most value while you focus on your existing business. However, between starting and scaling, there is a lot of room for rolling up your sleeves.
