While some brands are experiencing abundant success – broadcasting a live event series to millions of social followers, achieving 64.7 million impressions via a single hashtag, even crowdsourcing the winemaking process with help from over 200k Facebook fans – others are floundering to connect social media to a sales funnel.
Most wine businesses “don’t really think about what they are trying to communicate from a strategic perspective,” says Dr. Liz Thach, distinguished professor of wine business at Sonoma State University and co-author of Successful Social Media & Ecommerce Strategies. As a whole, Thach admits that the “wine industry is definitely not an early adopter in terms of social media,” however, participation is up and everyone from wineries and importers to wholesalers and retailers are eager to harvest the rewards that social media marketing can offer.
When asked to identify some of the biggest blind spots wineries have in terms of social media marketing, Thach noted a number of things that businesses tend to miss or misunderstand. Bypassing these blunders is the best way to squeeze every lead from even the leanest marketing budget and to ensure a social media strategy that survives over the long term.
