Growing popularity in home brewing and craft brews; The homebrew industry is thriving as a business in the United States thanks to the many passionate hobbyists and the craft beer revolution.

Week 10: Blog Post Part One

What’s most important is how emotional language can change personal experience. The social media experience is no longer that boring spots, but now they are using methods that are more on a relatable level. That method is the use of adding human interest to a post. It makes sense to use this method when creating an experience that appeals to peoples emotions. This can be effective when you are trying to sell a service or product. When it doesn't make sense, it is when you as a business are just trying to get a message across, or a thank you.

Week 8: Blog Post Part Two

The businesses I chose to explore are 3 punk ales, Chula vista brewing, Bay Bridge brewing, and Novo Brazil.

1) 3 punk ales- Visual media seems to be working well for them. They repost what others hashtag. Doesn't seem like they use instagram as much as they use Facebook live. averaging around 3 post per day. They have around 3k followers. Their last post was few hours ago. Most of the comments are from friends and some customers, but mostly friends. Their followers range across the board. Other similar businesses to non-related businesses, and random people. What they are doing that can help my business, is how they include customer posts on their visual social media.

2) Chula Vista Brewing- Visual social media gets the idea across for CVB. I find CVB very unique, in the sense that they have over 5k followers in such a short amount of time. They reached a fast fan base from producing high quality beers. They arrived on the scene out of nowhere. The next minute they announced they were opening main street Chula Vista, masses began to show. It seems like word of mouth was more effective than visual social media for them. They post very few times and receive feedback comments from the local crowds. What I could use from them is displaying simple but meaningful post.

3) Bay Bridge Brewing- Visual social media is not their strength but its enough to get the word across. They post once or twice a week with simple content and design. They have a total of 955 followers with very few to none comments. Despite having few posts per week and little to none comments, they have a full house most often. We could benefit from using the constant, simple, clean posting as they do.

4) Novo Brazil Brewing- Visual social media works very well. With over 7K  followers and growing. They post several times per week with high quality graphic design and content. They receive many comments on their posts. To my understanding they interact most often and respond frequently. They are doing what we can benefit from is using high quality graphic design and content.

Week 8: Blog Post Part One

According to our brand, the visual networks that works best for our product and service are Instagram and YouTube. We link our Social Media networks together. It works out great! What we post on Instagram, shows up on Facebook and have links in the bio for our YouTube. We are in the process of creating a marketing campaign with visual social media for our re-grand opening. Stay Tuned!

Week 7: Blog Post Part 2

These post I feel keep the customer engaged and updated. The posts explain a few details on current news for tasting room construction, small batch brewing, and collaborations. The beautiful part of being both a brewery and home brewing supply store is that we can cater to the professional brewer and novice brewer.

Week 7: Blog Post Part One

These are the 8 business I chose to help with content to share with my followers / customers.

1) Country Malt Group
2) BSG Handcraft
3) BrewCraft
4) American Homebrewers Association
5) Brewers Association
6) Fermentis
7) WhiteLabs
8) Morebeer

These businesses are venders and industry leaders. I plan on using these businesses to help promote and share content related to the beer industry. The strategy is to allow a network of communication among other's in the industry, to gain insights on tips and new technology being used. This is very helpful to grow a business. For example, if my business has any technical issues's most often the above businesses have useful resources to help. Some of these businesses come with memberships to gain access to more resources's that can help navigate around certain situations that can become problematic. Such as operation cost, distribution, equipment, ingredients that might be needed at a lower cost than most. Not to mention trial and error recommendations. 

These  businesses can help other's grow on Facebook by the amount of information given to potential customers that can be used to attract more followers with the same demographic target market. The challenge will be to better understand how business's operate on Facebook and link it all together.

Week 6: Blog Post Part 2

A post reach is a post that is seen by a target audience. Facebook Insights overview will show your 5 most recent posts. In the reach section, it will display  organic / paid amount of people who it reached. 

A post engagement is how people interacted with the post. In the engagement section, it will display people's reactions, comments, and shares. 

It is important to understand the difference between both post reach and post engagement to see if you are reaching the right audience. A post can reach hundreds of people, but have few engagements if seen by the wrong demographic. But if the post reach is seen by the target audience, it can have more post engagements. 

A business can gain from understanding how post reach and post engagements work, by understanding facebook insight overview. A business can see if they are reaching target market goals. An example is studying facebook insight overview trends.
