Sharing Meal Inspiration

As part of its “Families in Motion” campaign, the beef checkoff partnered with Tastemade, a network of influential home chefs, cookbook authors and food/fitness bloggers, to highlight the positive benefits of beef’s nutrient bundle in everyday, family-friendly meals. Leveraging influential third parties helps position beef as a solution through sources that millennials see as credible experts on health and wellness. Three tastemakers were selected based on their editorial focus; each one produced custom content that demonstrates that beef can be nutritious and delicious, sharing a variety of unique recipes. The resulting Nutrients that Nourish videos are on YouTube, as well as the Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner website, and are further promoted through each Tastemaker’s respective YouTube channels.

Debuting Online Commercials

The checkoff recently debuted new online video commercials, which quickly registered significant consumer viewership. The two Families in Motion spots – “Beef at the Center” and “Beef on the Brain” – showcase beef in its absolute best light. With about 90,000 video views in its first week, Beef at the Center recognizes that while families are always on the go and evolve and change over time, BEEF always remains a family favorite at the kitchen table. Meantime, Beef on the Brain” – with more than 865,000 consumer views out of the gate! – brings Aaron Copland’s Rodeo to see what happens when one young boy spends his day knowing that beef is, indeed, what’s for dinner when he gets home. The new spots are anchored by a new “Families in Motion” landing page and supported by a wide variety of digital advertising support, including ads on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Google Search, websites and more.
