Leveraging Google Ads for growth
Google, as you might expect, plays a vital role in these brand building activities for restaurants and other hospitality businesses. And marketing on the search engine is carried out in a very sophisticated and targeted way with Google Ads.
“As part of our marketing packages, we do Google Ads. We want your brand to be up top when someone’s searching. So what we do is run keyword-targeted Google campaigns that are also geo-targeted to get that key customer,” said Grace.
As always with marketing, it’s important to follow the numbers. So constant sales reporting keeps the campaigns on track and ensures that results are maximised.
“We set up really sophisticated tracking, to allow us to see all the way from the ad impression right down to the sales. So we track the whole sales funnel for you, and report back to you at the end of the month. We also offer SEO - as part of this we optimise keywords on your website,” explains Grace.
Social media advertising campaigns
Advertising your restaurant or takeaway on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram is a highly effective way to grow your brand and drive more sales.
“Our team are specialists in social media advertising. We run Facebook and Instagram ads, to make sure that people who wouldn’t really know your business, see your business. Increased brand relevance is huge for us,” says Grace.
“We need to get the brand out there, so we market to the right people at the right times, to get them to order.”
Driving customer loyalty
Meanwhile, other key channels such as email and SMS marketing help to drive long-term customer loyalty.
“We know how important loyalty is for businesses. So we encourage customers to order through SMS marketing, email marketing and push notifications - and make these customers long-term loyal customers,” said Grace.
“At the end of the day, it’s simple - when someone’s hungry, we make sure your business is there.”
