Find in this post 5 social media ideas for your bar to make the most out of its online presence.
1. Choose a good hashtag
If you don’t have one yet, you must create a hashtag for your bar: #MyBar. In this brief word or set of words you should reflect your brand name to make it easier for users to mention you in their comments on social media.

2. Keep customers informed
Use social media to highlight your strengths, for example, the ambience of your bar, your best promotions and cocktails. Share your schedule on Twitter, create an album with photos of your best events on Facebook, photograph your best dishes and upload them to Instagram… In short, share every single piece of information with your followers so they can better enjoy the stay at your bar.
Invite your customers to leave their stories and experiences in your social media. With a brief comment, a picture and even a short video, the essence of your bar will be shared and viewed by a large number of people.
Use the content generated by your customers to create viral content. Collect this content, create an animated video based on the experience at your bar and show it on your YouTube channel. A viral video is a good element to spread a brand image closer and funnier; it reaches the customer through humor and emotions, inviting them to share it among their friends.
5. From virtual to real
Boost your online presence using offline media:
organize contests and raffles based on social media
share your hashtag on physical goods: flyers, cards, menus, coasters, tablecloths, napkins…
