Italian Berry provides companies with a variety of tools and channels for B2B communication:
With the native advertising formula Italian Berry produces technical content in cooperation with specialist companies in the sector to target an audience interested in learning more. Readers will find reliable and professional content and companies will be accredited as reliable partners. With this tool, companies can focus their communication on the topics that most interest their readers.
Italian Berry identifies the topics for companies that attract the most views and are therefore the most effective. Content that is published as native advertising contributes to a solid knowledge base that readers consult on an ongoing basis, generating visibility over long periods of time and not just for current events.
Some examples of native advertising:
- Now it's time to prune blueberry (technical partner: Fall Creek)
- Fertilisation of raspberries: theory and practice (technical partner: Molari)
The contents are preferably accompanied by audio-video supports which, on request, can be provided by technical partners selected by Italian Berry for the production of multimedia material.
The Italian Berry newsletter is sent every Saturday by email to all subscribers and contains a summary of all the week's news. Italian Berry also distributes two thematic newsletters that focus on two areas of particular interest to Italian Berry readers: prices and production.
Newsletter communication is aimed at a professional and enthusiastic audience who, by subscribing, have expressed an active interest in being informed about issues relevant to the sector. It is therefore a preferred channel for companies wishing to communicate with an active and involved public.
