Pairing Online Recipes with Real Results


We completed a full design refresh for the NCSPC website. With a primary focus on recipe awareness, the new look not only captures users’ attention with the use of bold, bright graphics, but also streamlined the entire brand presentation, making it easier to gather information and submit recipes.

Leveraging The Four Pillars

Social Media

We leveraged NCSPC’s four communication pillars – tradition, health, versatility and convenience – to tell the North Carolina sweetpotato story through a strategic earned media relations campaign. Through consistent outreach to targeted outlets including consumer, business and trade media, FWV secured nearly 90 million impressions in less than one year. Coverage highlights included MSN, Accuweather, The Shelby Report, Business North Carolina and more.

The new content approach has garnered positive feedback and increased engagement from followers and members of the commission.
