Increased Brand Awareness
Black Angus Steakhouse makes it their mission to provide memorable experiences to their guests. Not only are they providing excellent food and service in their restaurants – they have extended that experience to their customers’ own homes.
In 2022, they launched the Black Angus Meat Market, a retail meat program that’s available in all 32 stores and nationwide.
To launch the initiative, we created a commercial and a cooking show series. These videos advertise the market, but also show guests the quality of ingredients and how much effort the Black Angus team puts into preparing their food.
Not only did it help sell and launch the retail meat products, but it just widened the awareness of our brand across the entire United States.
Watch the video to hear directly from our client – Deborah Shapiro, the VP of Growth at Black Angus Steakhouse.
It was important for us to capture the quality of the food, including the “sizzle” of the steak.
The iPhone can film 4K footage. And with the tools of our remote video kits (including lights, tripods, and a microphone), we can record all the important details.
By using a mix of wide establishing shots, mid-range shots, and close-ups, we were able to get mouth-watering footage that encouraged viewers to buy a steak (or two or three!)
Short Commercials Work Better
After testing a 15-second and 30-second commercial… It turns out that the first ten seconds is what everybody was watching. So we remastered the commercial and ended up creating a 10-second version.
With the help of these videos, Black Angus successfully launched their retail meat market. They reached holiday-level sales during the off season. And it gave them national coverage!
The whole initiative expanded on their mission to deliver memorable experiences from their restaurant to people’s own homes. Chef Fernando’s cooking series engaged viewers with mouth-watering moments, and taught them how they can achieve results in their own kitchens.
