Well, we’ll begin this blog with a slightly emotional twist. Trust is a fragile aspect, but in some way or the other, at some point in time, one has to trust the other to excel in life. Similarly, trust matters in our professional life as well. Considering the restaurant sector, all the owners expect good sales and popularity, and sometimes handling it alone is not enough. A sound person will know that several agencies take care of these restaurants and their social media presence. However, the owner is solely responsible for brainstorming with the agency and discussing the elements they want to incorporate. 

Agencies like us primarily concentrate on marketing and social media presence. It is done to reach the maximum audience, and the sales receive a surge. While embarking on an agency journey, one has to be clear about a few things- 

  1. The agency workflow will focus on the marketing and social media aspect, but providing them with the resources on time is the owner’s job.
  2. Communication is the key; hence daily short meetings and reviewing the workflow are essential.
  3. Make sure you maintain a cordial and humble relationship with the agency peeps because they work day and night for your benefit.
  4. Hire an agency that has worked with the FnB sector earlier. It will assure you that your restaurant is in good hands. 
  5. Update them every week about the new launches, if any. 
  6. Invite them and let them review your food items to make it easier for them to showcase your eatery on social media. 
  7. Do not have a laid-back attitude towards your restaurant’s social media presence that demotivates the agency towards their duty. 
  8. Be very specific about your needs and expectations when it comes to marketing. 

One essential thing to remember is that the place is yours; you need to take ownership yourself; otherwise, it will go down the drain.
