Build your roadmap to growth with a seasoned expert with 17 year’s experience in strategic marketing and events.
I’ve had many conversations with craft breweries about their challenges and a large majority told me that their biggest need is help with marketing. Let’s take my friend Bob for example. He owns a brewery and makes awesome beer. He knows he needs to do marketing to get people in the door and drink his beer, but he doesn’t know anything about marketing. Since his brewery is pretty small, he doesn’t have the money to hire someone in-house and really can’t afford to hire an agency on a regular basis. So, he decided to hire a college student to help him with social media, but he wasn’t getting as many people in his brewery as he hoped.
My other friend Alex has owned a brewery for a few years, but he realized that he’s not hitting the numbers he wanted. When he first opened, he relied on the hype and his circle of friends and family to get the word out. It worked for a while, but the number of people started to decline due to other breweries popping up around him. I recently asked him how his business was doing and he said that he’s not sure if his brewery can stay open, especially with all of the breweries around him. He told me that he regrets not doing a lot of marketing before they opened or even now.
I know Bob and Alex aren’t the only ones dealing with this and many other challenges. There are tons of craft breweries that don’t really have the training and expertise to know how to get people into their doors. Not only that, some breweries don’t understand the importance of marketing and how it can truly help grow their business.
But it doesn’t have to be this way…
What if you could work side by side with a seasoned marketing expert to develop your own step-by-step marketing plan without breaking the bank?
What if you could build a strong, loyal following of raving fans?
What if you could find a way to really stand out from other breweries?
