Once A Month Meals is a Dayton born startup that went from having a blog to having a successful business with an international following. With nearly 400,000 followers on Facebook and over 112,000 followers on Pinterest they have become a go to source for freezer meal planning! The genius behind their brand comes from their social media and marketing strategy. Hear from their CEO and marketing manager on:

  • How did they built a national and international social media following
  • Their major success with Facebook LIVE including their best tips and tricks
  • How they manage a "work from home" culture where all of their employees work virtually? What does "Internal communications" look like for them?
  • The unique ways  in which they have they engaged with their consumers (online chat, enewsletters etc.)
  • How have they used existing events like Black Friday to "news jack" and engage with customers on social
  • How have they competed with other popular recipe sites (such as doing those quick recipe videos that are so popular on Facebook)
  • How they used and in some ways helped create the InstantPot craze to further their brand and their mission


About Tricia Callahan

Tricia Callahan
Founder & Creator
Once A Month Meals 

In 2009, I started a free, hobby, freezer-meal-planning blog (onceamonthmeals.com) to empower other busy mom’s to make meals ahead. In September of 2012. we experimented with a paid subscription model that would eventually go on to fund SAAS product development released in 2013. Today, we continue to empower thousands of families each month to make meals ahead and learn to freezer cook!

I use my “I don’t have to cook dinner nightly” time to play Minecraft with my 9-year-old Asperger’s son, craft with my 8-year old daughter and travel the world with my also-runs-his-own-business husband!
