As a pandemic sweeps through the country, many events, concerts, and other large gatherings have been cancelled in order to adhere to health and safety guidelines. However, some organizations have found that hosting a virtual event is a good alternative to simply calling off their plans completely. Recently, OtherWisz has helped a few of our clients prepare event campaigns that will draw interest even without the benefit of a physical platform.
Many business are persisting during these uncertain times and we are helping them to adapt, continue operations, and reach their customers in ways they hadn’t previously. This often means enhancing a company’s digital strategy or giving their customers a safe way to purchase products online with limited personal contact. Here are some examples of how we have helped a couple of our clients— specialty sandwich shop, Joe’s Deli, and Buffalo’s only co-op garden market, Urban Roots – continue to provide their services in new ways.
Over the past few months, we have been working to shake up our marketing strategy for Joe’s Deli. In the midst of dramatic changes in the Elmwood Village, our objective was to hype up their Elmwood Avenue location. Through the campaign, we sought to better connect with the people who support Joe’s Deli, along with the local community surrounding the area. Joe introduced Happy Hour, Saturday Brunch, and converted the back room into a game room to encourage local patrons to bring their friends and families together at Joe’s.
