WEBSITE  OVERVIEW

Aiming to promote the high quality and health benefits of Greek extra virgin olive oil to Anglophones worldwide, Lisa Radinovsky launched the Greek Liquid Gold: Authentic Extra Virgin Olive Oil website (www.greekliquidgold.com) in August 2016 with the technical assistance of Twin Net Information Systems Ltd.

Lisa Radinovsky is an experienced writer and editor who has published articles in Olive Oil Times (USA), Greece Is (Greece), Neos Kosmos (Australia), The National Herald (USA), Hellenic News (USA), Greek Reporter (international), Mercacei (Spain), Tornos News (Greece), Seabourn Club Herald (USA), Lancaster Online (USA), and other publications. An American who grew up in Pennsylvania and now lives in Crete with her Greek husband, Radinovsky earned a BA in English from Princeton University and a PhD in English from Duke University. For more information about her experience and education, see her LinkedIn profile

Greekliquidgold.com is the only wide-ranging English-language website devoted to promoting Greek extra virgin olive oil worldwide. It features content marketing for the Greek olive oil industry in the form of high quality original articles, recipes, photos, and links to additional information under many categories, which are visible on the site’s top menu.

MARKETING / OUTREACH

With hundreds of original articles and hundreds of thousands of page views, the Greek Liquid Gold website is promoted through social media marketing, especially on the companion Greek Liquid Gold: Authentic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Facebook page and via article sharing on other Facebook pages. Greek Liquid Gold also appears regularly on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram. Press releases, articles, and updates are sent to American, Canadian, Australian, and Greek (English-language) publications. Outreach continues to old and new contacts in and beyond the USA, Canada, UK, and Australia via social media and email, as well as through thousands of business cards distributed to foreign tourists at specialty shops and hotels in Greece, to importers and buyers at expositions, and to interested New Yorkers in the Big Apple.

Reaching readers in more than 210 countries both directly and through republished articles, Greek Liquid Gold has received especially noteworthy attention in the USA, Australia, Spain, and Greece. For example, New York's Total Food Service published a press release about the site, and Mercacei published two of them. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette focused a Food Column on it, Greece Is published an article explaining its origin, and articles from and about Greek Liquid Gold have been featured on the International Olive Council’s Olive News Scoop.It page and republished on the websites of Neos Kosmos (Australia), The National Herald (USA), Hellenic News (USA), Greek Reporter (international), and Tornos News, among others.

Please note that greekliquidgold.com sponsors and advertisers are more likely than others to be asked for comments for general articles written by Lisa Radinovsky (as opposed to articles focused on particular events in which specific companies are involved), when their input could be relevant to the topic under consideration. That usually means extending the advertisers' visibility far beyond the website when articles are republished (with permission).

Major Supporters and Sponsors will enjoy the following benefits, which will advertise both their products or services and their dedication to helping the people working in the Greek olive oil world, assisting the growth of the Greek economy, and improving the image of the Greek nation as a producer of high quality, healthy products.

1.) BANNER AD (for most businesses and organizations)

A 270 x 270 pixel banner ad (a square stable jpg file) prepared and provided by the company and linked to its website, to be displayed in the right column of the homepage or in the right column of another section of greekliquidgold.com, including its corresponding subpages. The number of subpages, indicated in parentheses after the section name in the bulleted lists below, depends on the number of subcategories (such as Vegetarian Dishes, Other Main Dishes, Salads, etc., under recipes), and on the number of original articles or recipes in any given category (such as News or Competitions & Awards).
