Job Overview


Greenroom was founded to fill a gap in the sporting landscape that represents a massive opportunity for sporting organisations and brands. We use digital strategies to help our clients capitalise on advancements in digital marketing and technology, by developing and implementing activation strategies designed to generate commercial outcomes.

We work with fantastic clients on exciting initiatives. For example, we implemented a digital amplification strategy to maximise Norfolk Island’s return on marketing investment, increasing the reach and engagement of its campaigns. This led to total website traffic being 14 times higher with web traffic referred from Facebook alone with a 2,583% increase. This shows the effectiveness of a calculated, targeted lead nurture strategy.

This is a high growth sector in which we continue to introduce new and innovative technology to ensure our clients are at the forefront of the industry with their digital presence and proactive partnership activations.
