Experience Sonoma Valley
Sonoma Valley was challenged to set itself apart not only from the greater Sonoma County, but also Northern California wine country as a whole (including Napa Valley). Sonoma Valley is the hotspot of Sonoma County, (the essence of California wine country) with more than 100 wineries, quaint towns, and a relaxed wine country lifestyle. Sonoma Valley wanted to shine in its feeder markets and stand out from the competition, while developing a cohesive and strategic advertising campaign with new messaging and a new look and feel.
Services include but are not limited to strategic development; message development; campaign creative and asset creation; social media advertising; execution of the full media plan including print, radio, digital, TV, outdoor and mobile; and monthly analytics.
JNS also participated in the brand development including stakeholder interviews and workshops, the creation of a new logo and brand promise, and subsequent advertising and marketing campaign taking the Sonoma Valley Visitors Bureau to Experience Sonoma Valley.
