For five years we have partnered with Beef! It’s What’s for Dinner. on highlighting the flavors and importance of beef in a well balanced diet. Below is our Smoked Beef Tenderloin, a recipe and blog post which gets 15,000 monthly page views. This campaign also included a social media campaign.
We create video content as a compliment to campaigns, or as stand alone content. This video features our partner, Omeprazole ODT as part of our recipe creation process.
Social Media Campaigns
If your budget is small and your goal is for brand awareness, we can also provide social media only content.
We are currently building our indoor and outdoor cooking studios in our vintage barn (built in 1926). We are actively looking for branded sponsors who would like placement in the studio or to assist in the construction.
The Vindulge Wine Marketplace and Club features live-stream tastings in which we talk about our favorite wine and food pairings. We would love to discuss potential complementary opportunities to feature products with our wine club community.
