Client's Background

If you’re looking for mouth-watering food, tasty cocktails, and a fun place to chill or party, then you have come to the right place! With two sites located at the top of The Triangle in the heart of Bournemouth and another in Charminster, Dancing Jug offers a friendly atmosphere with quality being the top priority.

At The Triangle, take advantage of our covered, heated secret garden, located at the back of our venue. Come rain or shine, it’s the perfect place to grab some tasty food and enjoy some drinks!

Both sites have recently undergone extensive refurbishments, including a blush new interior, fresh bright paintwork, LED & neon lights, and comfy high and low-level seating throughout. Every day of the week, there is an array of different entertainment to suit all tastes!

Challenges and Solutions:

Detailed Solutions

Challenge 1: Market Competition

  • Solution: We conducted a comprehensive competitive analysis to identify key differentiators for Dancing Jug. Our strategy included emphasising unique features such as the heated secret garden, the bottomless brunch offering, menu, food offers, happy hours and diverse entertainment options. We developed targeted paid ad campaigns on social media and updated Google Business to highlight these unique selling points. Additionally, we engaged local influencers to increase brand visibility and reach.

Challenge 2: Brand Awareness Issues

  • Solution: To create a consistent brand image, we redesigned Dancing Jug’s brand guidelines, website, and social media profiles to reflect a cohesive and modern aesthetic. We implemented a comprehensive social media strategy, including a content calendar to ensure regular, high-quality posts. Our team produced professional photography and video content, including reels, to showcase the venue’s atmosphere and offerings.

Challenge 3: Low Conversion Rates

  • Solution: We focused on enhancing the user experience on Dancing Jug’s website by updating it with a mobile-friendly design and clear calls-to-action (CTAs). Our paid advertising campaigns were optimised for conversions, with targeted offers such as discounted bottomless brunches. We also implemented retargeting strategies to re-engage visitors who had previously shown interest but had not converted.

Challenge 4: Poor Online Presence

  • Solution: We revamped the website with SEO-friendly content to improve search engine rankings. Our social media strategy included consistent posting, engaging with followers, and leveraging hashtags to increase visibility. We also created and managed Google My Business listings for both locations, ensuring accurate information and encouraging customer reviews.

Challenge 5: Specific Marketing Problems

  • Solution: We addressed the previous agency's shortcomings by providing transparent reporting and regular updates to the client. Our team used advanced analytics tools to track the performance of all marketing activities, making data-driven decisions to optimise campaigns continuously.


Learnings and Adjustments:

Adaptability - We listen, we explore, we create, we engage - WE REFINE

Throughout the project, we learned the importance of being flexible and responsive to the client's needs. Here are some key learnings and adjustments we made:

  • Initial Campaign Adjustments: After launching the initial ad campaigns, we noticed that engagement was higher for posts featuring user-generated content and behind-the-scenes videos. We adjusted our content strategy to include more of these elements, which led to increased follower interaction and engagement.

  • Social Media Engagement: Early feedback indicated that followers responded well to interactive content such as polls and Q&A sessions. We incorporated more interactive posts into the social media calendar, boosting engagement and fostering a stronger online community.

  • Event Promotion: We learned that promoting events with a sense of urgency, such as limited-time offers or exclusive previews, significantly increased attendance rates. We applied this strategy to future event promotions, resulting in consistently sold-out brunches and events.

  • Website Optimisation: After analysing user behaviour on the updated website, we made further adjustments to the site’s navigation and CTAs to improve user experience and conversion rates. We implemented A/B testing to determine the most effective designs and messaging.

  • Feedback Loop: Regular feedback sessions with the client helped us stay aligned with their goals and preferences. We used this feedback to fine-tune our strategies and ensure the client’s vision was accurately represented in all marketing efforts.

By embracing these learnings and making necessary adjustments, we demonstrated our agency’s commitment to delivering exceptional results and adapting to the evolving needs of Dancing Jug.
