A Journey to Enhance Digital Presence
In today's competitive market, establishing a strong digital presence and effectively communicating a brand's values are essential for success. This case study outlines how we collaborated with Vresh Foods, a Calgary-based food producer specializing in Ghee, to enhance their user experience and brand awareness.
We aim to create an interactive experience that takes users on a unique journey, from understanding the benefits of ghee to how the product supports the local farmers to buying a product which supports their healthy lifestyle.
Educate buyers who don’t know about Ghee: To clearly communicate the product's features, benefits, and unique selling points to potential customers.
Develop a strong User Persona: Without a clear understanding of the main target audience in a new market, the product struggles to effectively reach, connect and seed trust with potential customers.
Increase brand awareness: To make the Vresh Foods more familiar and recognizable to potential customers, and to create a strong memorable image in the minds of consumers.
Establish a strong User Experience theme & Strategy: We want our users to feel like they are part of a community that shares their values, where they can learn, engage, and explore our high-quality products in a way that feels personal and authentic.
Vresh Foods faces challenges in effectively educating potential buyers about Ghee's benefits while increasing brand awareness. Furthermore, the absence of a strong User Experience theme impedes the creation of a community-driven, engaging platform that resonates with users.
"Interactive learning is the future. We want engaging courses that help us grow as financial advisors."
To understand the pain points we interviewed users of different user persona and came up with the following conclusions.
Users cited time constraints for trying new food products and frustration over limited in-store info and local availability.
