Reuthe's The Lost Gardens Of Sevenoaks
Reuthe’s are historical gardens in Sevenoaks that specialise in organising outdoor activities such as children’s events, weddings and treks through the woods with their signature Alpaca experiences.
The gardens are a stunning restored landscape dating back to the 19th century providing breathtaking views over the Sevenoaks countryside and an impressive array of exotic plants, shrubs and trees.
Reuthe’s the lost gardens of Sevenoaks approached us as one of the many businesses heavily injured by the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, the footfall for the gardens, ticket revenue, and overall online presence were very low.
They approached us with the initial interest in raising their social media profile with no revenue currently coming from online sales; this is something the team at Reuthe’s wanted to change.
The team had tried to improve their social channels in-house but had yet to be able to strum up visitors to the gardens. Our task was to help them establish an initial audience and help the team create content and feed it to this newfound customer base from the local area.
We reviewed Reuthe’s current approach and created an entire social media content strategy that involved the scheduled release of regular, valuable content on multiple platforms. Initially, the client only wanted to use Facebook. However, we quickly implemented Instagram and Twitter after showing them the benefits of being accessible in multiple locations.
We discussed the brand and values with them, creating a unique visual language that could be utilised across multiple platforms. In addition, we worked closely with Reuthe’s to create content that spoke directly to their target audience.
The goal was to create an emotional connection between the potential visitor and the gardens.
After proving ourselves with our highly efficient social media services, the client requested search engine optimisation. Therefore, we have developed a local SEO strategy to drive traffic directly to the website and foot traffic to the site. We focused heavily on local traffic due to the nature of the client’s business and directly impacted the onsite café revenue.
We worked with the client to help retain customers with marketing consultancy providing ideas on how to encourage newly won customers to return to the gardens.
