Focus on Local: Growing through a loyal local following with Cooney’s Mountain Mustard

Posted on

Sharing is Caring!

In this episode of the Focus on Local Podcast, host Ellen Matis, of Hello Social Co., chats with Kim Cooney, owner of Cooney’s Mountain Mustard based in the heart of the Pennsylvania Wilds.

In this episode, Kim talks about how her product took off like wildfire as a result of support from her local community back in 2004, and how she’s retained a loyal customer base over the course of many years since launching.

Each episode, businesses also pose Ellen and “Ask Me Anything” question — their opportunity to pick Ellen’s brain and talk more about social media marketing. When Kim first reached out to Hello Social Co. about being a podcast guest, she admitted she had a lot of questions about marketing and about social media in particular. In this episode, we chat about how to use social media to leverage your business on a beginner-level, and talk strategy and resources for businesses in the same boat.
