It seems you can’t sit down in front of the TV, commute to work, surf the internet or read the newspaper without being faced with food ads. Some marketing messages are encouraging you to eat out, and inviting you to head to their restaurant. Other commercials are reminding you of the benefits of dining in your own home, the comforts of your own kitchen and the sense of accomplishment when you’ve prepared a gourmet feast.
With all the restaurants that pop up overnight and new food products that hit the market every day, consumers are literally bombarded with print and online media content competing for their attention. They are overwhelmed with the information being put out there, whether they intend to eat out or dine at home. Obviously, some of the messages are going to get lost in the fray.
When it comes to our food and beverage clients at 5WPR, we are not willing to let that happen. It’s our responsibility as a top food PR firm to ensure that consumers hear our message; moreover, we want to read their minds to know what they want to hear. We want to be that voice at the back of their head that says, “You know, I kind of feel like making dinner at home tonight and Italian sounds perfect.”
The major client players at a PR agency like 5WPR rely on our team to put together attention grabbing content and prepare it for widespread distribution. As consumers are assailed from all angles with marketing messages for a wide variety of food and beverage products, our content needs to stand out. If it’s not memorable enough to make an immediate impact, there’s no way it will ever last long enough in a consumer’s mind to inspire them to buy.
Fortunately, our team at 5WPR has some tactics up our sleeves that we use while developing the marketing campaigns of our clients. Often, we’ll introduce a new spin on a previous strategy that was successful in optimizing brand visibility. Other times, we’ll have brainstorming sessions when content has gone stale. It’s important for our team to press on when other PR firms might have run out of ideas if we want to stay at the top of the game.
