One of the big questions that I have been grappling with over the past few months as a small food producer has been how to increase exposure to my product in a manageable way.
Let me tell you that I am pretty darn excited to be sharing the news that Manning Canning now has a storefront on Foodie Pages.
If you don’t know about Foodie Pages, well I am here to tell you that you are missing out. Seriously! It is an online farmer’s market where you can buy direct from some of Canada’s best food producers. And now, people anywhere in Canada can pick up some tasty Manning Canning products and have them arrive on their doorstep.
Now as someone who spends their week day working in online marketing and social media I was drawn to Foodie Pages not only because they provide me with the ability to process orders online but they are also providing some pretty great value to their online shoppers. I loved the innovation of the Chef’s Box Subscription where different Canadian chefs curate products from the different producers and bundle them up in a box that you as a shopper can subscribe to…check out this month’s chef box curated by Trish Magwood.
It took me a little while to pull this page together and there is one special person that I need to give a huge shout out to because without his wonderful help, there would be underexposed (or overexposed) photos of the products that would inspire no one to shop. Since starting Manning Canning, the universe has kindly been putting some pretty wonderful and amazing people in my path for me to meet. These people have done things to help me build my business that I am not sure I will ever be able to find ways to thank them. But I will try. Over and over again ;).
Peter Visima is perhaps one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He is kind hearted and gentle in spirit, genuine and I am so happy that our paths crossed. He took the photos of my product for my store front and they (in my opinion) look good enough to eat. So thank you Peter. This storefront owes a lot to you and the wonderful photos you so kindly took for me.
Now everyone…place an order ;)
