Your brand’s story matters.
At the Curated Feast, we help organizations share their stories through photography, writing, social media strategy, and marketing campaign development. We believe an integrated communications strategy must include everything from exploring your brand’s archetype to sorting through heaps of data to best understand and engage your unique audience.
Your brand’s story matters for your continued success. We’d love to help you tell it.
1. Social Media Marketing Coaching
Whether you need support leveling-up your Instagram strategy, or you have no idea how to build a successful brand on social media, we are here to help. We have worked with local and national brands to engage audiences in their stories. We would love to help you get your brand to the next level through one-on-one coaching.
2. Full-Service Marketing + Strategy Development
If you don’t have the time or interest to learn about social media, then we are here to help. We will create a strategy for you, and either run all of your online marketing efforts for you or set up the infrastructure and content plan for someone on your team to run our tailored strategy. From influencer marketing to organic community engagement, we have the experience to help you find the right strategy to help your you reach your business goals.
Liz Birnbaum, Founder + CEO
As an outgrowth of her love of entertaining friends with surprising facts and anecdotes about food history, Liz Birnbaum founded the Curated Feast in the Summer of 2015.
Liz has been dubbed a "Culinary Mastermind" by The Good Times, one of Silicon Valley Business Journal's 40 under 40, and was honored as "Foodie of the Year" at the 2017 Nexties Awards. In her decade-long career in food, she has organized the oldest and largest sustainable agriculture conference in the West, traveled to Italy as a U.S. delegate for Slow Food, interviewed farmers coast-to-coast, raised money for organic research, and tuned a party trick into a business (The Curated Feast).
Liz has co-taught college courses on biodiversity and agriculture, botanical imperialism, and food geography. She has also curated more than a dozen exhibits, briefly co-owned a gallery, and founded a museum. She has been encouraged to explore the world for as long as she can remember, so that is what she continues to do.
