Cheaters Reading Glasses Case Study [Work]

Social media campaign reinvigorates online sales [Work]

05 Nov 2015

GA Creative conducted a “Quick Hit” Social Media Campaign on behalf of Cheaters Reading Glasses, an online purveyor of high-end reading glasses. Previously a physical store in a popular mall in Corte Madera, California, Cheaters moved exclusively online in response to rising rent prices. Orders had slowed with increasing competition in the fashion reading glasses space. Cheaters tasked GA Creative with helping to give business a boost through social media.



“We were thrilled with the amount of traffic this social media campaign drove to our website in such a short period of time.”
