I'M PROUD TO BE WORKING WITH
Background & Brief
The New World Trading Company continues to expand their portfolio of The Botanist restaurants year on year. Each new venue launch requires a significant amount of project management, marketing promotion and PR and so the team came to MKTG Lotty for outsourced digital marketing support.
With the imminent launch of more restaurant openings, MKTG Lotty was tasked with creating a project/content calendar for The Botanist - highlighting the main digital channels to utilise for promotional content marketing activities to drive sales from online bookings.
New venue openings content strategy
MKTG Lotty created a detailed content calendar that included deliverables and deadlines for organic social, paid social, PR and email campaigns, plus website SEO improvements, blogs and menu updates. This content plan was key in the successful management of content creation for the launch and post-launch of the new venues at The Botanist Coventry, Cheltenham, Bath, Warrington and Cardiff.
By aligning all content across organic social, geo targeted paid social, email campaigns and editorial, MKTG Lotty helped showcase each new Botanist’s food and drink offering, dining experience, interiors and exclusive discounts - before, during and after launch. As a result, The Botanist website sessions (new) increased by 75% and secured advanced bookings for the restaurants.
