Going into their 2022-2023 budget year, Ocean Mist Farms’ marketing goal was to educate trade buyers about their full product line.
DMA Solutions worked with the marketing team to secure placements and develop a print and digital ad campaign that emphasized how the company’s Gold Standard reputation extends beyond artichokes to four additional product categories: Leafy Greens, Fresh Veg, Value-Added, and Private Label.
Arti, Ocean Mist Farms’ lovable artichoke character, has long been a fixture at local community events and in recent years has become a regular social media personality during the company’s peak artichoke season.
This year, Arti and his purple artichoke counterpart, Viola, were leveraged in a multi-pronged trade marketing campaign to educate buyers about the winter and spring growing regions that included a coordinated trade advertising series.
In April, during the initial peak and uncertainty of the pandemic when many companies were fearful to spend their marketing dollars, DMA Solutions created advertisements for And Now You Know to drive subscribers to our blog and build awareness around our services offerings.
Why? Because DMA Solutions is focused on being helpful first. Throughout the pandemic, we have continued to share relevant content for marketers to help guide them through this unusual landscape. As a way to get out ahead of the pandemic and position DMA Solutions as a thought-leader, we chose to spend our marketing dollars to support the industry in a critical time.
