Social Media Training for Food Pros

Social media marketing has the potential to be one of the biggest time- and money-sucks for any specialty food company. It also has the potential to build your customer base, increase customer loyalty, create mega-fans/brand ambassadors, get your brand press coverage and increase your bottom line. It all depends on how you do it!

Until now, there has never been a comprehensive social media training program for specialty food brands.

Based on over a decade of experience in marketing specialty foods and beverages, two members of The Tea Mavens have created a detailed program to empower you and your food brand to succeed on all the social media platforms that matter right now.

During your 30-day training program, you'll be guided through all the ins and outs of social media for food businesses using tools that make success easy, including:

  • videos,

  • guided action-steps,

  • case studies,

  • sample images,

  • downloadable templates,

  • an end-of-course quiz,

  • accountability check-ins,

  • and more!

"From packaging to website content, Lindsey has handled numerous projects for Samovar. Her input has been full of passion, and she was a joy to work with...

I fully recommend working with Lindsey."

— Jesse Jacobs, Founder of Samovar Tea Lounge, San Francisco, California

“In under six hours of researching a major sourcing decision, Lindsey saved us more than $10,000 and many hours of work. Her years of accumulated contacts and knowledge are priceless.

— Andy Swenson, Dietary Supplement Experts

“Working with The Tea Mavens has been the best decision we've made for our business.”

In the past, we used a few freelancers to help with social media, blog articles, product descriptions, etc., and while they did an OK job, they did not have the love and passion for tea and it showed in their work. Finding someone with the skills that The Tea Mavens have plus the passion for all things tea was like hitting the lotto.
