CASTROVILLE, CA – Looking to deepen its ties with shoppers, Ocean Mist® Farms announced plans to connect directly with consumers through a year-long marketing push that will include digital and permission-based marketing, public relations, and social media content.

Ocean Mist Farms will focus on four major consumer promotions in 2017—including peak artichoke promotion seasons and holiday entertaining times. The company’s top priority for its 2017 marketing efforts will be to highlight the brand’s top-selling products—such as artichokes, Brussels sprouts, and the company’s expanding microwaveable Season & Steam product line.

Ultimately, though, the company intends to leverage intel gathered from these promotions to create smarter, more engaging content that inspires the purchase of more and more Ocean Mist Farms products. Through permission-based marketing, the company will gather information about shoppers’ preferences and develop more customized content for future outreach.

Ocean Mist Farms will partner with thefeedfeed and other nationally-recognized food influencers to support each of its promotions, while continuing to grow its own social media communities on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.

The company noted that its 2017 marketing efforts are expected to grow its shopper community by tens of thousands.
