W H Y THE ANCHOR N E E D #S O C I A L S E C R E T To drive a new brand of customers to the pub from increasing online engagement. To create and build The Anchor’s online presence. As you are not harnessing the power of social media, blogging and marketing channels, you are potentially hurting yourself and damaging your brand. During these tough economic times, it’s important to make The Anchor known as the best country pub and restaurant, and networking online when done properly can make all the difference. “We don’t have a choice as to whether we DO social media, its a matter of ‘HOW WELL’ you do it.” It is essential to use these platforms to confirm to your potential and existing
clients that you are better than everyone else in your field. Social media for restaurants and pubs is all about networking, engaging with the online community, talking to present customers to increase your reach and target new customers who will love what you offer.
It is essential now through social media that you engage with potential, and current customers constantly. Beware that it is called social media - Thatâ€™s exactly the aim of it; to be social! Too many businesses are creating social media accounts, posting on them once a week or month and not interacting with relevant data and channels. This damages the brand even more when potential customers are
researching you, it makes you look foolish and in all honesty it would be better to close the account. #SocialSecret will be effectively engaging with your audiences making you stand out against your competitors.
