  • Develop Content Strategy
  • Establishing a voice.
  • Deliberate Editorial Strategy. Brand narrative is celebrating the underdog. The Brand is the Story. Raise the profile of Let’s Talk Coffee to an ongoing, year-round experience by creating a digital editorial channel to publish topical stories about the sustainable coffee industry. Sustainable Harvest already has a wealth of information on it’s intranet.
  • Here is a mock-up of Let’s Talk Coffee. It’s going to be a hub for Sustainable Harvest and the main sales conversion platform. We suggest that it replace your blog on the website. It’s more like a digital magazine, and we intend Let’s Talk Coffee to be a publishing company that will exist outside of Sustainable Harvest. We think you should partner with other trade publications, like Fresh Cup, Roast Magazine, and Coffee Talk Media. We know the marketing team is only two people, and we don’t expect you to do this whole thing yourself. We intend for Sustainable Harvest to republish content through their own lens with their own tone and voice. Writers can be hired to write articles through
  • Schedule existing content like that on the company intranet to be shared via Let’s Talk Coffee and social media. The profiles can stay up all month and Sustainable Harvest can hire writers to repurpose the existing material in Let’s Talk Coffee’s voice. The dynamic content will increase searcheability and direct people to SH’s website.
  • Sustainable Harvest’s social media assets serve as important channels to reach your target market with editorial content from the “Lets Talk Coffee” digital magazine. Three methods for implementing an effective social strategy will include:
  • Sharing Stories: Sustainable Harvest has an incredible array of stories to share that can be put through various channels to drive Roasters back to the Sustainable Harvest website to learn more about the business model and thereby increase the chances of a sales conversion.Prioritizing Channels: Your current social channels such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube can be prioritized and leveraged to support the editorial content and effectively enhance the overall marketing efforts of the Sustainable Harvest “Relationship Coffee” message. We agree that LinkedIn could provide an important platform for to share of “Lets Talk Coffee” editorial content. Content Pillars: What content is distributed and where? Understanding how your target audience is interacting with you on your social channels will be important in deciding what editorial content you share and where you distribute that content. Your social channels will support your overall editorial calendar and help you develop a consistent rhythm for the release of content. The vast majority of your editorial content can be repurposed and shared across all of your social channels but optimizing and rewording headlines, timing posts to different channels, and scheduling & automating posts/shares on Social Media will hep you manage the editorial content more efficiently.
