How We Got To Today
For years whilst studying at University I’d been buying whey protein powder and a couple of other supplements. I had no idea what I was doing. Do I buy the overpriced stuff at the front desk at the gym? What’s a good website to buy from? What’s the difference between all the different protein powders? Do I go and spend £35 on a vile flavour? Is this website genuine?
Cutting through the clutter took a while but I soon got the hang of it and became a regular sports nutrition shopper. I’d always be looking around for a discount code and was constantly getting frustrated with all the deal and voucher sites. Their deals were either wrongly worded, expired or the coupon was actually someones referral code that had been pasted online.
With a web development degree in my pocket and several years of Internet marketing experience, I thought I’d take a shot at making a decent website dedicated to helping people save money on their protein, sports nutrition, health and fitness purchases.
It wasn’t long before Christmas and I was in the gym trying to make room for the incoming turkey and stuffing sandwiches. I’d had the idea to create the site for a long time, so I chose the domain name proteinpromo.com as I felt it summarised the purpose of the site nicely whilst also not just sounding like a generic deal site. I wanted something to tie it to the fitness industry – and given that protein is a main focus of the site it seemed perfect.
A Growth Spurt
Things started slowly, they usually do when it comes to websites. I got the basics into place so that deals and offers could be posted. I started adding some complimentary guides and informational based pages to add a little credibility and make sure we just weren’t seen as a paper thin spammy deals and discounts site.
Over time we developed the site more and more. Visual changes, development changes and a better plan moving forward meant that we started to gain good levels of traffic and build up our social channels along the way. With the help of our skillful photographer (see below!) we managed to fill our Instagram feed full of epic food shots, whilst also complimenting our detailed product reviews with some stunning photos to give readers a better idea about what they might want to purchase.
Over time we’ve added a huge amount of insightful pages to the site, spanning from weight lifting to the various fad diets that float around the fitness industry. We’ve covered more and more protein recipes than you could shake a turkey breast at, and our discount code section is getting some serious love from all the happy customers that are saving money.
We’re not done yet. More recipes, more guides, more deals, more reviews, more photos are all on the way. We plan on adding more exclusive offers on a weekly basis and working hard to ensure everything that’s been listed is accurate and still works. We’re branching out by adding more companies, reviewing a wider range of products and equipment and constantly thinking of new recipes to add to keep people on tracking with their nutrition journey.
