Crafty Marketing Tips For Your Craft Brands

How_To_Build_Craft_Beverage_BrandBeverage Trade Network interviews Hannah Hanley of Heritage Distilling Company on how to optimize small marketing budgets to support your retailers and build your brand.

Here are some pointers that is covered in the whitepaper.

1. On-premise sales are often a godsend for small producers looking to boost sales, especially if they self-distribute. What are some strategies to help brand awareness at on premise locations?

Heritage Distillery

Work hard to create relationships with key bars and restaurants to leverage the exposure of on-premise sales into increased off-premise sales. It’s no secret that when a potential customer tastes a product in a delicious cocktail, they are more willing to purchase a bottle of product so they can reproduce that cocktail at home. As brand recognition grows, bars and restaurants start seeking out popular products. A good rule of thumb is to always follow up with them in person and work to create a personal relationship in order to ensure your drinks are placed on their menus.

Social media can also land inquiries from bars across the U.S. and distributors in various states, Canada and around the world. As you grow your company and refine your products, target your messaging, marketability and placement – develop better marketing strategies and collateral tied to the placement of products and their audiences. You have to understand your audience before you can sell to them. Trying to sell a high-end craft gin to an on-premise “beer and a shot” bar doesn’t make sense. Likewise, trying to sell a flavored moonshine to a high-end steakhouse likely won’t yield success either. It’s all about finding the right fit for your brand and giving your retailer the necessary attention that they need

Heritage Distilling Company uses low cost channels and clever marketing to help provide support to their on-premise accounts and build brand recognition.
