Situation:

Everest Apothecary (Everest) opened its doors in December 2016. Siarza Social Digital began to support Everest’s marketing efforts in just a month later and was tasked with helping to increase the visibility of the brand, dispensary and Everest’s handcrafted cannabis.

CHallenge:

With limitations on the imagery, and soliscitation of the cannabis sales SiarzaSD could publish on social media platforms, we had to create unique strategies to help promote in-store sales and reach audiences without the use of social media advertising.

A rapidly growing cannabis industry meant a long list of competitors in the market for Everest. Setting apart Everest’s digital presence, voice and visual direction also posed another challenge for the SiarzaSD team.

Tactics:

  • A strategic content calendar:
    • SiarzaSD developed social media posts based on in-store sales and product releases making sure not to include pricing, percentages or words like “sale.”
    • Research on relevant third-party articles on medical cannabis health news, New Mexico cannabis law updates, and cannabis culture features were also included. The team also created graphic designs and event flyers that reflected the branding of the campaign.
  • A strategic content calendar:
    • SiarzaSD captured imagery that showcased products in a setting were used to illustrate how product was grown in all natural soil and under green conditions for the highest quality
    • Imagery was also captured of individuals wearing Everest gear and active lifestyle shots for Everest’s subsidiary brands HeyDay and hoodoo.
    • SiarzaSD attended key events to provide live coverage social coverage at events Everest took part in including a hemp festival and music festival.
    • Snapchat filters were also created and placed at events like Hemp Fiesta to increase brand awareness.
    • Staff features were created to help Everest humanize their brand.

    • Link.tree: SiarzaSD optimized the use of Instagram’s bio link so that multiple links could be accessed right from the social platform.
