When we finished the first brand and content workshop, many possibilities emerged in the minds of the entire Siu crew: original content to be developed for Nuh’un Ankara Makarnası, a young and dynamic communication language, an omnichannel content strategy, and much more. The first step would be to create the Nuh’un Ankara Makarnası Kitchen Academy. After that, we tried to look at food videos, which are very popular on social media, from a different perspective. Thanks to the influencer-supported content marketing strategy, Nuh’un Ankara Makarnası received the most interactions in the industry and won awards.
