There’s a new digital agency aimed at the Scottish food and drink industry – and it’s already picked up some prestigious clients.
Based on Albany Street in Edinburgh’s New Town, Big Flavour Marketing is the brainchild of Chris Terry, Craig Burns and Stephen Brown. Chris and Craig have 20 years of digital marketing experience between them and have left a luxury agency for this new endeavour, while Stephen’s background is in business operations.
Website design, brand and content strategy, search engine optimisation (SEO), online advertising and social media services are among the services they will offer.
Said Chris, “We’re passionate about the food and drink scene in Scotland and we understand the challenges that small businesses face when marketing themselves online. Our focus will be on helping bars, restaurants, hotels and B&Bs develop full-flavoured marketing strategies that make them stand out online, and ultimately increase revenue.”
Businesses that have hooked up with Big Flavour thus far include EH6 Music Festival, Alechemy, Krafty Brew, The Full Range, 1912 restaurant in Bathgate, McKays Hotel in Pitlochry and the Glen Mhor Hotel in Inverness.
Craig added, “We want to help small, Scottish food, drink and hospitality companies spice up their online performance, and promote the sectors across the board.
“We kept coming across small operators who couldn’t afford big agencies, or didn’t have time to find separate SEO, PR or social media consultants. We identified it as a gap in the market, and with our experience of working with brands like Rocco Forte, Apex Hotels and Champneys, we knew it was something we could do really well.”
