DigiVino and GO-UPamela Snyder, Founder, DigiVino and GO-U

On promoting wine sales and list building with the web…

Reaching people with the information of your wine’s distinct attributes matters as much to your small winery’s success as drawing out the unique character of each season’s grapes. Most of my clients love to roll up their sleeves and get elbow deep in sandy soil, grapes and wine. Most winemakers aren’t in the business because they love online marketing. I hear you! That’s why I am devoted to making telling your wine’s story easy, doable and remunerative for you. I created DigiVino to provide you with affordable and effective web strategies, tools and tactics. GO-U is my training and mentorship program for do-it-yourselfer wine marketers.

Three reasons you’ll want DigiVino and GO-U to help you promote your brand, increase your sales and grow your audience:

  1. I started DigiVino to bring web promotion to wineries–along with the experience I’d gained leading the production department for one of the world’s top three online marketing agencies. Our clients get the benefit of that background.
  2. My sensitivity to timeline and budget, as a small business owner myself, means that I understand the necessity of making every dollar count.
  3. At DigiVino, we celebrate the very differences that make unique each of the brands we serve. This love of culture and wine stems from avid world travel, an upbringing on a small farm in Northern California, an MBA in Sustainability, and a hand-picked team.

Capitalize on the web to increase sales, grow your list and build your brand. Master the most important areas of online marketing—such as web, search engine optimization, Google analytics, email campaigns, content management systems, social media—and get empowered with the tools and know-how to succeed. Contact me now and I will set up an appointment to personally do a virtual walk thru of your website and help you identify opportunities where you can be selling more effectively online.

DigiVino was founded to make reputation-building, revenue-generating and cost-saving digital media affordable and accessible for wine businesses. Our clients don’t have to be major corporations to take advantage of great online tools like web, social and mobile media. We differentiate ourselves from other web companies through our:

DigiVino built our new wine club site, www.rivierawineclub.com, to fit our design vision and handle complex purchase combinations. Customers can buy wine bottles, event tickets and sign up for monthly clubs, all in one order. The owner, Pamela, continues to provide strategic consulting whenever needed and her team makes changes and additions to the site upon request. They are professional, dedicated, tech savvy, and very accommodating. A big ecommerce project like ours can be daunting--I'm so glad to have them, because they know what they're doing!
