Brand & Business Development for the Hospitality Industry
We've been seriously doing the business for our hospitality industry clients in recent years. Clients include Adventure Bars, Big Easy, Bill's, Brigadiers, Brighton Pier Company, Camino, City Pub Company, Charlotte’s, Davy’s, Drake & Morgan, Drafthouse, Darwin & Wallace, Iberica, Laine Pub Co, Mash Pubs, Nice Bars, Temper, Nuala, Remarkable Pubs, Tell Your Friends, Tom Simmons, Thai Leisure Group, PubLove, Urban Pubs, Urban Village Pubs, Wright & Bell and Whitbread. Our recent focus has been customer acquisition via face-to-face and digital campaigns that recruit loyal corporate and residential customers. Campaigns that do the business for our clients, building sales and repeat business across buyouts, group bookings and footfall.
Business Development needs great Brand Story.....
We've invented a fictional character for a chain of celeb chef restaurants, written a narrative for Britain's wildest county and London's oldest borough, come up with dialogue for a shop window graphic and conjured up a poem for a property developer's garden shed.
Clients include a trillion dollar bank, a penny-a-share NHS spin-out, a Brighton pub company, a global five-star hotel group and a celebrity foodie.
We rattle our keyboards and shove words around mercilessly until they zing. Until they bring new life to our customers and their brands. Until the story war is won. Won, one customer at a time: online, on the street, over a pint. This is the way of the Lunar Lemon.
Brand story is also an integral part of every event and business development campaign we undertake. Craig has recently published a novel set in the hospitality industry. ‘The Belle Hotel’ is the story of three generations at a legendary Brighton hotel.
WHAT IS BRAND STORY?
When we say we do 'Brand Story" people sometimes crinkle up their faces and raise an interested (or mystified) eyebrow. Sounds interesting. Yes, I think we need that... but what is it? So, listen up. Here we go:
The stories we tell ourselves about ourselves form our identity. The stories an organisation tells itself about itself forms its Brand Story.
An organisation’s Brand Story needs to be strong, positive, coherent and engaging. If it is not, everybody suffers. This is particularly pertinent in the wake of what we might call corporate trauma; when an organisation encounters loss or major restructuring or negative coverage in the media.
Major change and upheaval can lead to a weakening sense of identity. This, in turn, undermines performance, clouds strategy and leads to conflict, stress, loss of motivation and innovation, fragmented communication and instabliity.
Repeated attempts at rebranding via advertising campaigns and conventional marketing strategies are not always enough. A call to name Brand Values and live by them is often received with cynicism by staff and clients/customers alike and has limited benefits. Many well-intentioned and costly interventions just don’t go deep enough.
"Brand Story provides invaluable content for Social Media"
Once the preserve of expensive centralised campaigns via press and TV, Brand Stories can now be spread to millions by pressing ‘send.’ The barriers have gone and many organisations have only just caught up with this idea, realising that a story is being told already through every tweet, post and update. And they’d better get around to giving it some sort of shape.
The mythology surrounding a brand is hugely influential and hard to change. Great if you are Virgin, or Apple, or Innocent. Not so good if your brand story is less than heroic. And worse if your organisation is cast as a villain or a fool by the media.
The question of course is: What is our story? How can we agree on it and own it? How do we craft it, cascade it, embed it and live it?
WHAT’S YOUR STORY?
The good news is that every organisation has a positive Brand Story waiting to be discovered. Every brand has a heritage to celebrate. Every brand has brand heros at every level with transformational stories to tell.
Brand Story needs to be unearthed and told. And then told again and again at the water cooler, in the Board Room, lift and bedroom, and through every form of internal and external communication. Until it becomes so much part of the infrastructure that you don’t notice it any more.
