Facebook campaign visits led directly to ‘book a table’

Our solution

  • To build awareness in the community – we helped them associate themselves with a well-publicised local event, the St Albans Food and Drink Festival 2018
  • By linking the THOMPSON St Albans name with the event, we raised the profile of the restaurant, built engagement with followers, and joined the conversation with influential social media posters like St Albans Council and Radio Verulam.
  • We set to work showcasing THOMPSON St Albans’ outstanding food and drink with professional food photography.
  • We posted pictures of the chefs at work and used the tone of voice of our posts to let Phil’s (Head Chef) character and personality shine through.

The results

  • Very high engagement. Our social media campaign was very effective at persuading followers to take action, with engagement rates reaching 13.42%.
  • One specific campaign saw a 2268% increase in Facebook likes and reactions
  • Raised profile. Our campaign hashtag caught the attention of the St Albans Food and Drink Festival, who shared the THOMPSON St Albans post on their Facebook page.
  • Increased website traffic. Our Facebook campaign prompted 85 visits to the website, of which 15 (22.73%) ended up on the “book a table” landing page.
