Social Media Marketing

The Grovedale Hotel

The Client


Nestled in the burbs of Geelong, the Grovedale Hotel was an established pub with all the bells and whistles. Gourmet food, quality cocktails and craft beer, live entertainment, pokies, TAB and a drive through bottle-o, all the foundations set up correctly for a busy pub to thrive. However, consumers wouldn’t consider a local pub for a great night out and instead, they would drive straight into the city. Our objective was clear, change the mindset of consumers and as a result increase sales.


Our Approach

Using social media marketing, our strategy was to focus on pushing mouth-watering content and live entertainment through Facebook and Instagram. Every month our content creation team visits the Grovedale Hotel and captures a wide range of shots that are used for postings and campaigns ✅ Ranging from food photography to slow-mo beers cheers-ing we don’t miss a thing. Our creative team also design artwork to promote live entertainment and upcoming sporting events.

Successful Posts

With Geelong’s population just shy of 200,000, various posts have managed to go semi-viral. As a result, the Grovedale Hotel were extremely successful in selling out of Hot Chocolates and Espresso Martinis, which in the pub world is unheard of  ? ?
