Disruption, the silent brand killer. You may be being disrupted without even realising it. But don’t worry, help is at hand.
The important thing to do first is don’t panic. Disruption can happen to anyone and it’s often not so simple to recognise. However, there are some tell tale signs that can help you on your way to identifying a problem and in turn, seeking the help you need. Do you recognise the following statements, answering yes to two or more may indicate you have a problem and you’re suffering from disruption. Be honest. Remember, admission is the first step to a solution. You can get through this.
If you’ve answered yes to two or more of these questions then it’s highly likely you are, or will be suffering from disruption. It’s time to seek professional help and above all don’t panic. Take solace, admission of a problem is the first step to a solution – you are on the right path, with the right help and determination you can beat this.

Marketing for bars, restaurants and street food is an art with some sector specific tactics that work incredibly well. It’s very much social/mobile first but that isn’t to say that strategy and ideas take a back seat. As is usually the way in this crazy world, life has a way of pulling you down unexpected paths.
