What others say...

"Olive Social came on board to create and manage a new strategy for our social media channels. Being part of a large organisation we have strict brand standards to follow. Rachel and Justine were able to work alongside our central marketing team to ensure all brand standards were met as well as creating a unique and local offering for our followers to understand the real Hotel du Vin Brighton. They are an absolute pleasure to work with and always went above and beyond to ensure every brief was met. They are true professionals and experts in their field with years of experience in the hospitality industry between them. I would highly recommend Olive Social and look forward to working with them again."- Melissa Smith, Hotel Du Vin Brighton 


"Rachel's expertise at marketing has ensured that my business' social media profile is kept on-trend, is frequently monitored and reaches out to my target audience. We have a great working relationship and she has some excellent ideas to help our new business develop. I am delighted to see how much more our customers now engage with us on Instagram and Facebook, as I struggled to find the time myself to keep an active presence on our social channels due to my other work commitments. Thank you so very much for your support!"- Erina, Owner, Skylark, Eastbourne


"Olive Social are a delight to work with. Always willing to listen and support the business as a whole with genuine interest and understanding. 

The business has gone from strength to strength with their expert input, strategic help and outstanding efforts. 

I’d wholeheartedly recommend Olive Social. They really care about our success and value our partnership. We couldn’t do what we do without their friendly yet professional support and are excited to see where the business goes with their backing.  Olive Social are a tremendous asset. Thank you Olive Social". - Jo, Owner, ChickBox, Eastbourne


“Olive Social have played an important part in building our company’s profile across the UK.  They’ve understood our DNA, got under the skin of our business and turned that into our real voice across all media platforms.  But perhaps, one of the main reasons why we love them and would like to keep them to ourselves in an ideal world is that they’ve blended into our business so well that they feel like part of our team”- Helena Hudson, MD, Real Eating Company


"Olive Social have been working with us, managing the marketing function for our new restaurant in Brighton called Kindling since last Summer.  Previously, my husband and I ran successful vegetarian restaurant in Brighton called Food for Friends for just under 15 years but wanted to do something else, so sold up in 2018.


We knew from previous experience that the right marketing support would be crucial for opening a new restaurant concept.  What we didn’t realise is how much we would learn in the process of working with Justine and Rachel.  They have helped give us an overall marketing plan and structure, ideas, contacts and connections to help us get our business off the ground.  They have managed our social media sites and profiles, set up our website, helped us with on-going promotions, exposed us to food bloggers, local and international press and reviewers and shown us the best methods of building our customer database.  They have even run workshops with our staff to show them how to take good photos of life in the restaurant. 


Because they both have operational experience within the hospitality industry, they have a much greater understanding than many other Marketing Consultants that we have dealt with before.  - Jane Mostowifi, Owner, Kindling Restaurant


No task is too big or too small for Justine.  She has helped me resolve many a problem and has always been there to answer my endless questions saving me from throwing my laptop across the living room. 


Justine has helped me many a time really narrow things down and challenges me to ask myself what I really want to achieve in my business and then supports me in the 'how to' in getting there. She's super knowledgeable, relatable and reliable. Always quick to respond and I always know just a phone call away. I would have absolutely no hesitation recommending the Olive Social to any organisation looking to successfully market their business. Annie Cheadle, Owner, Annie’s Yoga
