Innovative Digital Strategies for Bourbon Marketing with Brandon Smith of Bardstown Bourbon Company (Bourbon Pursuit #359)

Gone are the days of paying for billboards, newspapers, advertisements on benches and bus stops. Everyone has the ability to access a world of information right in the palm of their hand. If you’re like me, you check your emails 50 times a day and get notifications on multiple social platforms and other apps that demand your attention. But as a bourbon brand, how do you capitalize on the digital space? Brandon Smith joins the show to talk about how he builds a digital strategy at Bardstown Bourbon Co. We explain how to collect data and develop A/B tests to determine which digital ads are working. But we also talk about platforms and influencer engagement to encompass the realm of digital trends.
