Reputation Ink partnered with Stellar to conceive, strategize and implement Food for Thought in 2013. The blog addresses the many issues and challenges that face food manufacturers, including refrigeration, food safety, sustainability, planning, automation, operations and maintenance. The blog serves the food industry exclusively, helping drive SEO, capture a niche audience and build Stellar’s reputation as a food industry expert.

“The Food for Thought blog has been instrumental to our marketing and sales success, and is a valuable lead-generation tool for us,” said Justin Bridegan, Stellar’s Marketing Director. “Since the blog launched, it has helped generate millions of dollars in new business for the firm. Our prospects turn to the internet to answer their questions and solve their problems. Over the years, our blog has met that need while positioning Stellar as the industry expert and go-to provider when those prospects are ready to buy our services.”

Reputation Ink, a business-to-business (B2B) content marketing, lead generation and public relations agency, serves as the blog’s content strategy, editing and ghostwriting team. Using its public relations expertise, the firm regularly pitches the blog content to food trade media publications, securing multiple weekly placements in publications such as Food Manufacturing, Plant Engineering, Process Cooling, Food Engineering and more.

Food for Thought has previously been recognized with awards from the Jacksonville Business Journal and the Society for Marketing Professional Services.
