Ace Wasabi Rock-N-Roll Sushi
REESTABLISHING ACE WASABI ROCK-N-ROLL SUSHI AS A SAN FRANCISCO “HOT SPOT”
CHALLENGE: After 23 years in the Marina, established sushi restaurant, Ace Wasabi wanted to bring traffic back into its restaurant.
Although Ace had a digital presence with its website and social channels, the social channels were underutilized and lacked a cohesive strategy
Ace was missing an opportunity to reach and attract the millennial market with its lack of social presence and digital marketing initiatives
EXECUTION: To help raise awareness and excitement for the brand, we created a digital strategy to establish the brand on social, specifically Instagram and Facebook. We also executed an influencer event to grow reach among our key demographic.
After a completing a social audit, we established Ace’s voice and tone, visual brand identity and identified opportunities to capture the market through unique social content
We created multiple fun and playful content series such as #RockAndSushiRolls showcasing Ace rolls with popular music lyrics, as well as #PlaceNearAce to showcase Ace merchandise around SF
We also drove reach and excitement for Ace by hosting an influencer event, targeting key SF-based food and lifestyle influencers to showcase Ace to their followers
RESULTS: Through all organic (non-paid) efforts, Ace’s channels have grown in size and traffic to the restaurant continues to grow.
97% increase in Instagram followers to date since beginning to work together in December 2017
160K impressions garnered from December’s influencer event alone
Client marked December as their “busiest December in the last 5 years”
