Restaurant food - digital marketing for restaurants

Food & Drink Digital Marketing

One of the highlights for many living in London is a vast selection of bars and restaurants available. The amount of people spending a morning with a delicious coffee and croissants or an evening during the week at a restaurant with friends is a huge opportunity for new business. But with so many bars and restaurants to choose from, how do you become the first choice?

The key to digital marketing in the Food & Drink industry is word of mouth. Chances are that unless people speak highly of an establishment, it’s doubtful others will visit. This is why reviews are so important for your bar, restaurant or coffee shop. There is no need to rely on that critic (although it helps) when you can create an online community to champion your menu and service.

Digital Marketing for Bars

There’s no doubt word of mouth and referrals are still the best way to welcome new customers to your bar. However this is unpredictable and difficult to grow a business from. That’s where digital marketing can help by driving new customers who may not have otherwise heard of you to come down with their friends and reserve a table.

SEO and PPC can help your bar show up in search results for terms such as ‘classy cocktail bar in Southbank’ or ‘sports bar in Clapham’. Particularly if you don’t have a high foot-fall location this can be a great way to drive new customers. Then by using social media and email marketing you can build up a community of loyal fans and followers so you can entice them down for your next big event or happy hour.
