It’s time for another episode of the Stocki Exchange Marketing Show! This week, John is joined by Anthony Craig from Georgina’s and Simon Joseph from Harvest TC/Roaming Harvest to talk marketing in the restaurant world. With knowledge and good food talk, what more could you ask for?

Our guests talk about how they differentiate themselves in the highly competitive market of Northern Michigan, and how marketing and high-quality cuisine goes into that. The three go deep on how to use marketing to foster personal connections to customers, and how those personal connections can be used to your advantage. Anthony and Simon point out the importance of hiring people with drive and commitment over just skill, and John chimes in with how vital it is that marketing comes from a place of strong passion. The gang also discuss business models they think could be effective in their futures, plus their ideal marketing strategies.

During One Word Answers, John asks Anthony and Simon their plans if they were given a case of high-quality wine. Later, John talks ways to obtain and track short-term feedback in digital marketing, using marketing as a tool to support an experience, and the three express their love for Traverse City summers during Ask The Stocki Exchange. Finally, we provide all the social media you need to keep up with our guests, plus give you a chance to win a $50 gift card to Georgina’s!
