Feast Magazine broadens the conversation about food and engages a large, hungry audience of food lovers.
Our large-format print magazine is the backbone of the Feast Magazine brand and covers the entire state of Missouri with a focus on St. Louis and Kansas City, as well as Eastern Kansas and Southern Illinois. The magazine, which launched in August 2010, distributes 140,000 copies across the region, including 70,000 in the St. Louis area; 50,000 in the Kansas City area; and 20,000 in Springfield, Columbia, Jefferson City and throughout Missouri’s wine regions.
Feast’s digital content offers an expanded online and social media presence. Those looking for a taste of their hometowns or seeking new places to dig into will get instant access to all of the region’s best food and drink through Feast’s digital outlets.
Feast TV, the magazine’s Emmy-winning half-hour television program, showcases the people and places that define the flavor of our region. Feast TV can be seen on PBS stations across the region, including the Nine Network in St. Louis, KCPT in Kansas City, KMOS in mid-Missouri and WSUI in Illinois.
Feast’s online presence features continuously updated culinary reporting that covers restaurants, bars, wineries and breweries, shops, design trends and culinary travel. We are constantly seeking stories, places and people that will engage our readers. The Feast website also offers expanded articles, including access to Feast TV, tons of photo slideshows as well as a fully-searchable database of recipes. Readers may also search for locations to pick up the print magazine based on zip code. A digital version of every issue is available online, and users eagerly flip through each issue of Feast page by page and see it as it appeared in print, including all of the ads.
SOCIAL MEDIA AND ENEWSLETTER:
With constant connection to our more than 50,000 social media followers, we drive audience for our clients with giveaways, sponsored posts and exclusive promotions. Plus, enewsletter subscribers receive weekly updates from Feast. With direct links to new and exclusive content, the weekly email keeps our readership engaged. The enewsletter’s clean design and bright photos effectively and succinctly deliver relevant content to thousands of inboxes. More than simply a promotional tool, the Feast’s strategic use of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, coupled with the enewsletter, maintain the conversation that’s launched when each new print issue hits the streets.
Feast produces custom content videos for clients using the same high level of production found in Feast TV. The videos are developed from an editorial angle and are available on Feast’s website, where they are viewed over and over by our hungry audience. We cross promote the videos through social media as well as our enewsletter and clients are given copies of the videos for promotional use.
