Using Social Influence to Drive Online Sales
We helped Toadfish Outfitters drive online sales for their oyster knife - the ultimate tool for oyster shucking. By sending samples to chefs, oyster companies, and social influencers in coastal cities, we were able to create excitement, generate word of mouth and third party endorsements that included a link back to Toadfish for purchase.
Based in Charleston, South Carolina, Toadfish Outfitters uses environmentally responsible materials and donates a percentage of every purchase to preserve 10 square feet of oyster beds. One step at a time, we’re helping protect coastal habitats by increasing its company’s sales.
