Marketing Strategies and Services for Restaurants & Small Businesses
A ONE WOMAN FULL SERVICE MARKETING & MANAGEMENT TEAM
You’ve poured your blood, sweat and tears into your restaurant. You’ve made it happen and you should be really proud to even be where you are right now. If you’ve ended up here with me, it probably means you are looking for help. By now you’ve learned some things about running a restaurant or small business. You’ve learned there’s only so many hours in a day. You’ve learned that marketing is the last thing on your mind at the end of one of those days. You know it’s important, but you don’t know where to begin. So what do you do?
I’m here to help you find out! My name is Abigail Taylor and I've been working in the service industry for over 15 years. In between pouring drinks and managing front of house teams, I've worked as a marketing manager for growing businesses. With me, you get the best of both worlds, a restaurant industry veteran with marketing and management skills who understands the needs of your specific industry.
I’m committed to learning everything there is to know about your business. I’ll learn what your goals are, what challenges you face, and what you’ve done so far to help solve them. From there, I’ll help you build a strong brand voice. I’ll help you create irresistible content to support your brand vision and give you the tools you will need to grow your business by leaps and bounds through these and other services. I'll help grow your team, set up POS systems, maximize your efficiency, and set you on a path for successful growth.
A strong brand starts with clear intention setting. If your intention is to provide a specific service to people, is that intention clear in your public facing content? When you look at your logo, website, and collateral, does it speak to that specific intention? Do you have a mission statement or a vision? Do you have core values? We can workshop your brand intentions and come up with a strong brand identity together.
Your website is the first impression most people have of your brand. Does it reflect your brand vision? Are products and services easy to find? I’ll sit down with you and evaluate your site starting with the end user in mind to make sure you are putting your best foot forward. I offer...
