CFM Offers Visual Marketing Workshop

Learn tips and tricks to tap the power of visual marketing.CFM’s Marketing PR team is offering a free workshop to give tips on how to market your food-related products and services using visual communications.

Your Brand Promise: Let It Show, Let It Show, the December 4 workshop in Portland, will explore the concepts behind visual communications, as well as provide practical skills to spruce up websites and social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.

“Visual marketing works," says CFM Account Manager Suzie Giacomelli. "Showing off what you make or sell can add sparkle and spice to your holiday marketing — or marketing any time."

The workshop features hands-on opportunities to practice the tips presented. Giacomelli and CFM Digital Strategist Hannah Smith have made a similar presentation to food manufacturers and retailers.

"Suzie and Hannah brought an energetic approach to the subject of visualizing one's brand," said Gretchen Phillips of the Ashland Food Coop. "Their workshop was well-rounded with a full list of ways to reach out into the cyber world and uphold a brand's values, while appealing to the image-hungry smartphone generation."

"I walked away inspired with a list of free photo editing websites and a plethora of budding ideas," Phillips added. "These professionals know how to get people excited about the art of branding."

This value-packed visual marketing workshop will be Tuesday, December 4 from 5 - 6:30 p.m. at CFM’s Portland office. Tips and tricks will come along with hot chocolate and snacks. The workshop is aimed at food industry professionals, in-house marketers, consumer brand specialists, retailers and business owners.
