The Christmas Finish Line

Cant find the right Christmas Gift?

Christmas calendarEach and every year we have that thing called the “mad dash” or “last minute shopper” that needs to pick up a gift or 2 or 6 for people on there lists that are either hard to buy for, or we’ve forgotten about them. (you know you have done that before!)

Above the Coals wants to point out the 2 best deals of the season and the fact that they are available to ship out till Friday 12/20 in time for Christmas.

As a brand, we have shipped to Japan, Canada, the UK and to over 50% of the states here in the US and we have found that our #1 selling seasoning is our Signature Classic.

Instagram and the impact of social media

SMPWhere do you get your fix of Social Media?

You’re probably asking why a blog for a BBQ seasoning company would be asking YOU where you get your social media from…

Here’s why. We ask ourselves, how we can do better?  How can we get the word out about how great our product is? What is the best avenue to take when it comes to social media?

We have been involved in social media for a long time. (Twitter from the start, Facebook from the start, Google + right after they launched, Instagram (personally), and a few other well know sites.) But one of the things we’ve seen as we create new blends, cook, and photograph our fare for you all to see is the need for more pictures and video!

Let’s start with pictures. People love pictures and that’s where our next step will be. We have opened up a new Instagram account just for Above the Coals BBQ. Here is the link in case you would like to follow us, like, and comment on our pictures. ( www.instagram.com/abovethecoalsbbq ) We feel that the exposure (no pun intended) that pictures bring to current customers, potential customers, and their friends is invaluable. We are looking forward to showing you some of the things that we have done in the past, and going forward.

Do you engage in social media?

The answer isn’t that you are on Facebook and Twitter. but do you actually start or get involved in the conversations that interest you? What would give you the warm and fuzzy feeling to “Like and Share” something from Above the Coals? We love to be engaged with others when it comes to our brand and general conversations. I honestly think from the feedback that I get is that most people are getting an “overload” from social media because it’s the way most everything gets sold. The days of the brick and mortar are fading away to the Internet. Personally, I love both avenues to sell and promote our product. I hope you get a chance to answer some of these questions on our Facebook Page. I will be posting a link to this blog there and on Google +.

Pictures or video?

Are you more apt to engage when a picture is posted or a video? I have always leaned towards photography seeing where I love the art of taking a great picture (or so I try!), but still like the message that video can deliver. I’m looking forward to doing some more videos and opening up a new channel for them as well. Look for some additional videos on the “Video” tab here on the website in the coming days/months. Updates when they come out will be on all our social media spaces.

Instagram? YES!

We love that we can promote on Instagram and I hope you can get involved with us over there! Take a look today for some great info on a sale that is happening now so that you can take advantage some savings!

Monday Deal is posted!

Carolina PileOur Monday Deal is HOT!

There is no better time for a deal that can warm your wallet, palette, and your heart. It’s one of our favorites and our 2nd best seller in the line. Our Monday Deal is our Carolina Heat Wave in our shaker top bottle, available on our Square Marketplace site!

This seasoning is great for baking, grilling, smoking, or slowing cooking. It’s been used in the crock pot here in the kitchen, and the aroma will make you excited for the end result.

This was a seasoning that wasn’t even supposed to make the line, but after some taste tests, samples, and a few focus groups, this one was a winner.

Below you will see the link to the Monday Deal on our Square Marketplace where you can get some substantial savings today, and today only! Click the link and pick up as many as you like. We are ready for your orders!

Mason Madness Sale (Closeout Sale)

The catch phrase…

8 ounce Mason (Holds approx 6 oz)

Clearance, Liquidation, Daily Deal, Steal of the Day, Bonus Buys, End of Season Clearance….All monikers that are attached to products that have seen the end of the line…We have that day coming…

You called it what?

In earlier days, I had a company that I did have an “ODD” (“One Day Deal”) which is great and all, but when products are put on sale in the food category, they don’t always sell out in a day…So, with that said, I have decided to call this latest offering a “OTG” (Offer till Gone). While looking at the way products are purchased by customers, and the way that they are received, we have decided to move some of the containers in stock to make room for more of the other sizes in other categories. (Pouches, Shakers, and Limited Editions).

An early dismissal…(and a great deal for you!)

The container that is going to no longer be carried is the 8 oz. Mason that holds approx. 6 ounces of product to make room for new products that are coming, and also to bulk up on shakers and the launch of our wholesale program (so you can find us in your local grocers!) Also, with this purchase you’ll receive an additional 3 ounces of Signature Classic at no charge!

Where is this Offer till Gone or “OTG?”

We are hosting this offer at our Square Marketplace where you’ll find all our specials. The tab “Sale Items” will direct you there. Click HERE to be directed there now!
