Case Study: 135 Degrees

The Challenge

As a new catering business without a location, 135 Degrees needed to develop an online presence and build a name for their brand and their upcoming restaurant. The 4 partners came to the table with their own networks of clients from other businesses, but needed a strategy for leveraging those relationships to build interest in their catering, and anticipation for their new restaurant.

The Solution

We worked with 135 Degrees to build an online presence for them, starting with designing email marketing and social media campaigns. We utilized boomtime’s Word of Mouth marketing strategy to leverage their existing networks in order to build interest in 135 Degrees, generate new customers, and drive traffic to their new website in anticipation of the restaurant opening.

The Results

We were able to create an online presence for 135 Degrees, and also increase traffic to the website using our email marketing & social media strategy, with almost 50% of site visits coming from the email campaigns.
