Campus Protein



Founded in 2010 at Indiana University, Campus Protein’s mission is to be the one stop shop for college students who want brand name supplements and vitamins at affordable prices. As a college student himself, Russell Saks, saw a huge opportunity when his friends were spending more money on supplements in-store, primarily to get sales rep’s personalized guidance on what to take based on their personal goals. By building a system of a robust online store, affordable pricing, fast shipments and campus reps on the ground to provide 1:1 advice, Campus Protein cracked the code. Today Campus Protein has 10 warehouses across the country, are on 300 college campuses and have over 1500 campus reps.

Since going live with Nosto,
Campus Protein has seen:


conversion rate


increase in revenue


increase in valuable traffic


Shopping for supplements and vitamins is an extremely unique endeavour from one shopper to the next: the perfect product can depend on body type, gender, goals and more. Campus Protein was challenged with how they can provide the same 1:1 experience shoppers can get offline and bring it online. To do this, they mostly rely on their campus reps. In order to build a network of campus reps and customers they needed a reputable and reliable online presence that people could trust and want to be a part of.
