Choc/ed, with a brand new location, needed a new direction toward their marketing strategy to raise awareness about their business. Owner Elysha Varenbut was too busy making orders for customers and was looking for someone to take over her marketing." I was too busy and needed someone with a brand vision for my business to take over and create the content and awareness we needed," she said. She knew that the right social media & PR strategy could increase sales and get the word out. When Schmooze PR presented itself as an all-in-one marketing agency, Elysha was happy to build a digital brand with them.


With a new location, Choc/ed needed an update on its digital footprint. We first changed and updated their website to create a clean and enticing look. Google and other SEM strategies were developed to build a profile and bring awareness to specific keywords associated with the new brand. Social media platforms were then updated with new brand styles, photos, and videos to create a mesmerizing experience when potential customers visited their profiles. After the foundations were established, partnerships were formed, and PR inquiries were created. Then influencer campaigns and giveaways were executed to raise awareness and increase sales. Sales doubled in 3 months with an increase in clicks and orders.

“Leo joined the team as we grew and moved into our new space. He helped manage our Shopify online store and all our social media platforms. He helped get the word out about us, especially around the holidays like Mother's Day and Valentine's day. We discussed everything together, from new items to promotions and influencer campaigns. I felt like his team was part of my team, and we worked together cohesively to bring this business to new heights! After the pandemic ended, we saw a drop in sales, and I ultimately decided to close down the business. Leo and his team kept us rolling all the way to the end.”
