In anticipation of National Coffee Day on September 29th, we pooled the Imagineers for their top picks for coffee around the city of Atlanta. In an environment as fast-paced as Imagine Media, we need to stay fueled and coffee breaks are a key ingredient to our success. Not to mention, the Imagineers also enjoy the occasional the opportunity to step away from their desks and work remotely from somewhere new. Here are our favorite spots to sip, strategize and create around the city.
Over time, Instagram has become an increasingly important platform for the food and beverage industry. Think about it, food is constantly being shared via Instagram. At least once a day you will see food appear on your feed or in your stories. Not only that, but when searching for a place to eat, Instagram has become an important way to find the best place to go. People will look at photos on a restaurants social media channel to learn more about the food and atmosphere. With all of that being said, Instagram is an important tool that should be leveraged by the food and beverage industry. Social platforms allow a business to share daily specials, events, and interact with their followers. For the food and beverage industry, this is becoming a key way to market to their target audience and bring in customers.

Given that we’re in the social media business, we love any excuse to incorporate a strategic hashtag into our posts! National days are a very useful tool that we use to build out marketing calendars for our partners. When you map out an annual marketing calendar, national days are a great way to fill in the gaps between the commercial, well-known holidays that your business may use in their advertising campaign.
According to Hootsuite, 80% of the Food and Beverage Industry uses social media instead of traditional marketing to nurture leads, improve ROI, and stay in the know about customers- and competitors.
If you can create an emotional connection to your food, drinks, or ambiance, you will not only gain new customers, but you will retain them.
