From no social presence to onboarding 5 major accounts in 10 months

The client


Shtiks is an ecommerce fulfillment outlet with warehouses around the US. Avi Wieder, Director of Sales and Marketing, realized an opportunity for growth as COVID exploded ecommerce all over the world. 

The problem

Learning to play by new marketing rules

 Like other businesses, Shtiks realized quickly during COVID that they would have to make some changes if they wanted to stay ahead. Traditional sales and marketing were rapidly becoming obsolete, and Avi understood that social media was the way forward.

 But with no time to invest and zero existing social presence, Avi was skeptical he’d see significant return from traditional LinkedIn use. He turned to Fluex for help.

The solution

Human connection first, expertise second

 Since Avi was starting with no presence, our initial goal was to introduce him to the LinkedIn world on a personal level. Although Avi is of a more reserved nature, we prompted him with directed questions around personal challenges, goals, and insights. Together, we came up with content he felt comfortable with, in a voice that stayed true to who he was.

 With consistent posting and engagement, Avi soon built up a devoted, engaged following.

We then shifted to our second goal: building authority and industry-specific appeal. On our weekly calls, we used narrower prompts and Avi began to share his expertise in a way that built trust and authority with his audience.

The result

Five new major accounts in ten months and a religiously devoted following.

“I don’t plan to stop anytime soon!”

Over the past ten months, I’ve onboarded five new clients thanks to LinkedIn. And in my line, that’s a lot. These are big companies that need hundreds of thousands of square feet to store their goods. It’s amazing how things are going, how it’s happening. I don’t plan to stop anytime soon!
