New Podcast: Broaden Your Digital Marketing Efforts with the Branded Program

Digital marketing continues to evolve and has become an increasingly important part of a company’s overall marketing efforts. In fact, digital marketing can be an extremely cost-effective and valuable tactic to reach international audiences and to educate them about your company’s seafood products and how they are sustainably harvested. Digital marketing allows you to reach your audience where they are - online, on social media and via their smartphone.

The good news is that the Food Export–Northeast Branded Program provides 50% reimbursement for international marketing expenses including digital marketing. With the pandemic, the Food Export team has seen more and more US companies integrating innovative digital marketing tactics into their overseas programs. If you are interested in learning more about creative ways to enhance your digital marketing program, then listen to the most recent episode of the Food Export podcast called Broaden Your Digital Reach with the Branded Program (Episode #10). It is relatively short (great for a car ride into the office or out on the boat) and provides some real word examples of how US companies are leveraging the Branded Program to develop creative and measurable international digital marketing efforts.

This podcast episode explores the following:

  • Successful influencer activations on social media
  • Video and its multiple uses to reach a wide variety of audiences
  • The value of optimizing your website and customizing it for international markets  
  • The importance of e-commerce and what the ecosystem looks like from online store platforms to international store locator engines and in-market grocery delivery apps. 

Additionally, the podcast provides a Trade News Now update that focuses on global supply chain challenges.
