Social Media Support for Wineries

What is Blog Your Wine social media support?

With Blog Your Wine social support, focus is placed on engaging the wine buying public with authentic* messaging to fuel your social media success.
To do it right takes time and skill, and there’s no substitute for either one. Essentially I will act as an administrator over your social media platforms; continuously building and optimizing the accounts, posting original content, and engaging consumers in meaningful and authentic dialogue.

Why should I use this service?

– Because you don’t have time to constantly maintain and monitor your social media presence.

– Interns or office assistants may be inexpensive, but are ineffective; and most wineries simply can’t afford a dedicated full-time social media manager.

– Very few PR agencies or social media consultants have practical experience at a “ground level” in the wine industry. My experience stems from 15+ years in the food and beverage industry, as well as being a Certified Sommelier (CoMS) and Specialist of Wine (SoWE).

– The program creates online buzz, driving potential sales and cultivating ambassadors.

– I’ve personally already made the connections within the social media community, and built my own following.

– It compliments your featured week on BlogYourWine.com (if applicable).

– Similar services are 2x – 3x more expensive, and are no more effective.

What do I receive in the program?
