Marketing Strategies that Work!

  • _If you don't have an online presence you're not going to be found_—it's as simple as that. What you can do to step up your game, even more, is to enlist the help of influential bloggers to promote your catering venture. Those blogs with thousands (and sometimes millions/) of subscribers actually do make a difference. If you can get a great nod from one of them, you will be golden.

  • You may offer some free tastings now and then. Reach out to local businesses, organizations, even attend a local conference and provide a few munchies during the break or afterward. What better way to market your catering company than via the food itself…

  • Invest in a little SEO. Again, being found online is critical. With a stellar website and then some due diligence when it comes to the SEO end of things, people are bound to come across your business as they search for a caterer for their next event.
