  • Where we started

    At the inception of ThrivePOP, our team was predominantly composed of website developers alongside a few marketing specialists. Over time, the dynamics have shifted, leading to a streamlined web team and the expansion of our marketing department. This team now boasts a diverse set of skills, including marketing strategists, social media specialists, content creators, copywriters, advertising experts, and consultants.

  • 2017

    In the early days of ThrivePOP, our core team primarily consisted of website developers, complemented by a few marketing specialists. Fast forward to today, and the dynamics have transformed. While our web team remains compact, our expansive marketing team now comprises seasoned strategists, social media experts, content creators, skilled copywriters, advertising specialists, and a web team.

  • 2020

    After a year at the GVSU Technology Hub, we transitioned to a new setting in downtown Muskegon. Recognizing our entrepreneurial spirit, another business owner offered me the chance to renovate and lease space on Western Ave, marking a significant step in our growth journey. To this day, I am very thankful for the opportunity to provide a hip,  modern space for our team to call home.

  • 2021

    First time Exhibiting at MJBizCon, 2021! We met a ton of amazing industry experts and gained insight into the struggles faced when trying to market cannabis.

  • 2022

    Our team at 155 W. Apple Ave, Muskegon, MI. After 4 years on Western Ave, our team was exploding so it was time for us to move on, and we purchased our very own building. We completely renovated the space to our new “home away from home” located at 155 W. Apple Ave, Muskegon, MI. I say that because I tend to be there working more than at my place of residence. 

  • 2022

    Exhibiting at  MJBizCon 2022. In our second year at MJBizCon, we capitalized on invaluable lessons learned from the previous year. In 2022, we expanded with a larger tradeshow booth, enabling us to foster deeper connections and substantial industry knowledge!

    2023 went out with a bang as the team rocked the 12th annual MJBizCon. We hooked everyone up with awesome ThrivePOP merch, and sweet goodies, and met some incredible folks!

Ask us, Why

Many people ask us why we decided to specialize in the cannabis industry and to be honest, we fell into it. I was working with consultants and they were pushing me to select a niche, and this was the niche that made the most sense at the time. We had a client that we have been working with that talked to us about their vision for being the leader in the cannabis industry and they encouraged us to attend MJBiz Con to learn about the industry. We invested in the team and sent people to the event and quickly learned, the cannabis industry is complex with how you need to market, and there was a huge need to learn the industry to be the most successful marketing team with all of the federal guidelines that are put in front of us. We dove in, head first, and were one of the first cannabis marketing agencies in the industry. We joined cannabis associations, volunteered our time, and helped as many cannabis companies as we can by helping them navigate the marketing and advertising hurdles they are faced with.

We are a Woman-Owned Cannabis marketing agency

Cannabis marketing is challenging and innovative. We have been in the marketing industry since 2000, and there have been a lot of changes in the digital marketing space since then. It's been exciting to be within the cannabis marketing realm as the industry grows. We have definitely made our mistakes, but have learned from them and are here to teach you what NOT to do! Let's just say, Facebook and Instagram can be unpredictable and difficult when marketing cannabis-related products. Our team enjoys what we do and has been known to push our clients out of their comfort zones.
