Social Media

The key benefit of social media marketing is that it allows you to create a community around your business and engage them at a local, informal level- instead of just shouting to a mass market. ResDiary is doing this with diners in their local area on a daily basis. We can create blog, video and photographic content that reflects your brand; content which can then be used improve awareness of your business to our social community in your local area and engage them to make a booking. Social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram also provide fantastic advertising opportunities to target key demographics in your local area-giving them an online experience of your business and giving you a far more attractive return on your investment.

Blog

Taking the lead from you, we can create engaging blog content which is aimed at improving awareness of your brand. This can be done in a number of ways; from interviews, to venue and staff profiling to inclusion in one of our very popular ‘Top 5’ blogs. This content is designed to encourage engagement, and be shared by potential customers waiting to book at your restaurant. ( Include examples Cail Bruich/ Le Coq Interviews/ Top 5 blog).

Search Engine Optimisation

Search Engines, like Google and Bing, are releasing updates every week, altering the rankings of websites and trying to provide the most relevant search results for a user. A lot of advertisers promise a rank of 1st of search pages which is unrealistic since user searches are personalised by a variety of factors including your past searches and location. Therefore, each individual user gets the most relevant results to them. What we can promise is to apply the best practices that have been proven to help businesses being found by the most relevant customers and thus increase the visits and bookings.

Paid Search Advertising

Pay per click (PPC) advertising (Google AdWords, Bing Ads) has been growing phenomenally and taking the place of offline advertising (e.g. billboards, magazines, and etc.). It can start generating visits and bookings straight away while natural search (SEO) can take weeks or months to take effect. The results you can get depend on your budget and location. Often, using PPC with the support of SEO can have transformative effect on a business.
