Top 10 Bar Marketing Agencies: Best Digital Marketing Companies For Bars
Are you looking to find the best bar marketing agencies to market your bar?
If you’re in charge of marketing a bar, nightclub, restaurant or hotel and you want to find an agency to help drive traffic to your venue, you’ve come to the right place.
In this blog post, we’ve rounded up the top 10 marketing agencies which are the best marketing companies for bars.
Here at Bloc, we’ve worked our way through plenty of marketing agencies in our time, some exceptional, some – not so exceptional (you won’t find them on this list..!) and to save you time, money and energy, we’ve compiled a list of the best ones for you.
Just remember to mention our name if you give them a call!
1. CJ Digital
Top of the list is CJ Digital, who claim to be “the leading experts in digital marketing for bars, restaurants, hotels and hospitality” so it’s no wonder they’re our number one pick.
It’s hard to disagree with them, we used CJ Digital to create our website, run our Google Ads and help us boost our SEO efforts.
They were flawless from start to finish and provided us with a dedicated account manager who boosted our results every step of the way.
They’re not your run of the mill agency – they think outside of the box and are guerilla marketing experts.
If you’re looking for an agency to work with your current marketing team or existing agency, then these guys are affordable and effective.
We like to think the results speak for themselves – you’re on our website right now – but if you’re looking for any form of digital storytelling, CJ Digital are the agency for you.
They encompass the full 360 package you’d want from a digital marketing agency, including website optimisation, content creation and even ad retargeting. They don’t just stop after setting up your initial Google Ads.
2. Straight North
To the top is where you want to go, right? So the appropriately named Straight North bar marketing agency is a pretty safe route to take.
We ran CRM campaigns through Straight North at the very beginning of our Bloc journey and they did a really great job for anyone who is looking to get started.
3. Sauce Communications
Okay – you got us – Sauce Communications is technically more of a foodie agency than a bar marketing agency HOWEVER, who doesn’t love a good burger in a bar?!
Sauce Communications pride themselves on being one of the best social media agencies in London, and if any bar includes a bite, they’ll help them out.
Our favourite thing about Sauce is their access to food bloggers and influencers which is critical for any bar that wants to succeed.
If your bar offers a menu, big or small, access Sauce’s influencer list and get them to come down and try your grub out. They’re very reasonably priced too!
4. Bar Synergy Group
By now, you can probably tell we are handpicking the best bar marketing agencies who specialise in particular marketing streams.
While we still maintain CJ Digital is the best for the full bar marketing experience, the Bar Synergy Group is a pretty good route to take for their design department.
They’re not your average marketing agency and they can create cool graphics for your bar, tavern, diner or saloon! Yeehaw!
5. Snack London
If you don’t live in London, you might as well skip ahead to number 6, but if you are from the capital, you may want to consider a Snack.
Snack London focuses specifically on the bars around London and are a handy bar marketing agency to have up your sleeve if you’re looking for someone to handle your social media accounts.
For us, Propeller is probably just second to CJ Digital in terms of the best bar marketing companies for bars, but we’ve dropped them down the list because well, they’re pretty dang expensive!
And when you’re looking to get the best return on investment across your marketing spend, you’ll need pretty big pockets to turn the Propeller properly. I guess that’s why the leading image on their website says Press For Champagne!
A good route to take if you’re looking for a luxury agency.
Still want to read about the best bar marketing agencies? Yesmore please!
They’re an On Trade Marketing Agency who take a very strategic approach across your marketing plans.
But they focus on three main pillars: marketing to drive business growth, marketing strategies for hotels and bars and On Trade marketing partnerships.
If this is what you’re in the market for, check them out!
8. Bar Marketing
These guys probably have the best website name, right? Bar Marketing – it couldn’t be more obvious what they get up to!
We like this agency because they automatically send their marketing campaigns for awards too. They want to make sure that you achieve the recognition you deserve, and why not?
If you want an award on your website footer, check out Bar Marketing. They also offer training and legal directories too.
Ignite is a bar marketing agency which has gone global. They operate across the UK, US and Italy are fuelled by creativity and technology.
They focus on elite brands, such as the bars you find within the Marriott Hotels and even provide e-Commerce solutions for major clients such as Facebook too.
It would be rude to write out any list of the best bar marketing agencies without including a nod to Roche who are the PR gurus.
They’ve been handling the press for bars and restaurants across London since 1993 so have certainly played their part in the evolution of the hospitality industry.
If you want to go down the traditional route, Roche may be the one for you.
So there you have it. That’s our list of the top 10 bar marketing agencies in the business.
We’ll also be writing a blog post on the best restaurant marketing agencies, the best pub marketing agencies and the best nightclub marketing agencies in the coming weeks too, because here at Bloc, we’ve dipped in and out of them all!
