Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a British Restaurant

Promotional tactics for British restaurants are exceptionally diverse. But in our experience, there are a handful of tips and strategies that will deliver the best return for your marketing efforts.

The marketing model for a British restaurant has changed dramatically over the past twenty years.

The marketplace is constantly shifting to accommodate consumer demand and that means businesses need to adapt their marketing requirements accordingly. Core marketing concepts offer touch points to help small business owners navigate uncertain markets.

Competitive Awareness

Do you have a new marketing idea that will transform your industry? Don't be so sure - at least not until you have explored what the competition is doing. There's nothing wrong with creativity, but if it precludes your messaging from being represented alongside other British restaurants, there's a good chance that you're missing something. Although you might be convinced that a new strategy will give your company an edge, it's reassuring to consult with a professional marketer before you go too far down the road.

Promotional Calendars

Sloppy marketing programs have no place in growing British restaurants. A strategy chocked full of time-sensitive ad placements and other tactics can devolve into a tangled mess of overlapping deliverables unless it is coordinated in a promotional calendar. Good calendars include not only tactical deadlines, but also schedules for the inputs (e.g. staff assets, vendors, etc.) that are required to execute strategic objectives. When used in tandem with a quality mailing list provider, promotional calendars can ensure the continuous execution of direct mail campaigns.

Sponsorships

Event and team sponsorships are a proven method for raising the public profile of British restaurants. The goal is to increase sales by generating visibility and goodwill about your company and/or your market offerings. But if you aren't deliberate, you can invest big bucks in sponsorships and receive little return for your investment. The key is to limit sponsorships to events that are attended by people who are regular British restaurant patrons. To minimize costs and multiply outcomes, consider teaming up with a complementary business to co-sponsor targeted events.
