Smoked Q at the 2023 Fort Wayne Home & Garden Show

In our second year at the Fort Wayne Home & Garden Show, Smoked Q aimed to elevate our performance by analyzing customer interactions from the previous year. Through this, we successfully doubled our sales compared to the previous year. Some key elements that helped us:

Improve marketing

We aim for growth in 2023 and have started enhancing our marketing strategies to promote the Smoked Q brand. We have been focusing on utilizing social media and email marketing to highlight our products and inform our current and potential customers in Fort Wayne about our presence at this year’s Home & Garden Show.

Improved Customer Experience

Smoked Q has recently revamped its product labels to distinguish them from other offerings in the market. The new design ensures a seamless customer experience by enabling them to quickly locate the desired product while also providing a clear understanding of the ingredients and the ideal protein pairing.

Expand Product Offerings

One of our significant enhancements was the introduction of four new rubs and a new sauce, out of which we ran out of stock of two rubs during the show! This expansion in our product range has provided more options for both our new and loyal customers.
