FEED ME TV SIZZLE REEL
DELIVERING AN EXPERIENCE
A detailed example of how I managed the entire creative process of "The LIEducation of Scott Vogel," taking visual storytelling to a whole new level
After successfully launching Feed Me TV and my first spin-off, "Quick Bites," I took the initiative to examine other potential programming opportunities.
NEW KID ON THE BLOCK
In this series, viewers join Scott Vogel, the newest food critic to join our team, on his education of signature Long Island dishes and legendary dining experiences.
SHARING THE LOVE ACROSS ALL PLATFORMS
By identifying the potential in Scott’s unique reporting and quirky personality, I was able to craft an overwhelmingly positive response from passionate fans which has resulted in all of Scott's content becoming one of our top contributors to conversions and time on site.
AMAZON ALEXA BRIEFING
I wrote and distributed the news story for our Amazon Alexa Daily Briefing which was published in the early morning hours of the episode's launch, aimed toward commuters.
Next, I coordinated the images and wording for the Feed Me newsletter which was sent out around lunchtime on the day the episode was published, with particular attention placed on the interest of the local foodies who make up our newsletter subscribers.
SOCIAL MEDIA PROMOTION
Finally, I wrote the share text for the special social video which was published around dinner time on all Feed Me and Newsday social media platforms. The tone was casual, humourous, and inviting to those looking for a laugh or a nostalgic trip down memory lane at a Long Island classic.
NYC FOCUSED TV PROMO
This promo was aired on ABC 7 NY during their live coverage of the 2019 Columbus Day parade which complimented
the broadcast coverage of our Feed Me parade float.
