USER GENERATED CONTENT

Increase click-through rates, lower acquisition costs, and grow sales conversion rates with authentic and trustworthy customer-generated content.  Traditional advertising is expensive and doesn't resonate with today's consumers.  However UGC delivers authentic and engaging content, which makes buying decisions easier for your consumers. With the UGC platform, you can use social media walls to engage with consumers everywhere, create contests, and use consumer content to promote your brand.

AUGMENTED REALITY

Enhance consumer engagement by bringing your bottle labels, merchandise, and print material to life.  With AR, you can engage with consumers like you've never done before while increasing brand interaction and ROI across all channels.  Consumers simply scan your label or collateral with an AR app then you can connect with them through content and features, such as 3-D experiences, sweepstakes/contests, surveys, videos and animation that pop right off the page.  

 

BREWERY PROMOTION DISTRICTS (BPD)

You’re probably wondering what a BPD is. BPDs are a stable funding source for craft brewery organizations that want to improve business for its brewery members.  As a collective group of owners, the BPD's main goal is to increase business activity, which means more customers and sales. These activities can include marketing efforts, special events, and a variety of other programs that benefit the businesses within the BPD.
