The Challenge

Originally a salsa and spice blend company, Tommy’s came to us in 2013 as they were rebranding and revamping their image, at which point we built Tommy’s Superfoods a simple website to showcase their unique frozen products and help customers find them in nearby stores.  The clean and concise website served them well until early 2016 when the company entered a period of rapid growth, expanding distribution beyond their initial Texas-based markets to a national scale.  With nationwide distribution came a need for a more robust online presence.

In order to grow their position as a national brand, Tommy’s Superfoods needed an online presence inline with their top-tier competitors. They also needed to battle back against the misperception that frozen foods are not a healthy or delicious choice.

More than just a fresh website design, Tommy’s needed a complete online marketing strategy developed and executed to bring consumers back to the frozen food aisle and get them hooked on Tommy’s unique veggie blends.

Working with Amber and Chris has been not only a pleasure but has exceeded all expectations! They are very service oriented and focused on helping us grow our business - they treat it like it's their own by going above and beyond in their attention to detail.

Our Approach

Our approach to Tommy’s initial website development project and ongoing marketing strategy was fun, colorful, and distinctive from their competitors in the frozen food aisle.  Emphasis is placed on Tommy’s all-natural, non-GMO products as being able to stand on their own, whether as a side dish or at the center of the plate, and significant effort has been put into visualizing how Tommy’s can be easily incorporated into every meal – breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The Tommy’s Superfoods website was expanded to include an interactive product listing with nutrition facts, ingredient lists, and clever descriptions.  A full-featured store locator tool was developed to handle Tommy’s large-scale distribution network, making products easily searchable by brand enthusiasts.  After extensive research and whiteboarding sessions to help Tommy’s develop a clear picture of their target demographic, our team developed a strategy for the ongoing addition of content to the Tommy’s Superfoods website through blog and recipe posts.  Lead capture and calls to action were included throughout the website.

Following the launch of Tommy’s Superfood’s website on world-class hosting capable of scaling with high levels of web traffic, we managed a robust online marketing strategy, including regular posts on their Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest accounts, Google Adwords and ongoing Facebook advertising campaigns, ongoing food photography and videography, blog writing, and sweepstakes management.  Our approach to each of these platforms and content areas is unique based upon the identified audience and platform best-practices, but carries through key messages consistent with Tommy’s brand: that Tommy’s frozen vegetables can be a tasty, healthy addition to every meal.
