Marketing Consulting for Small Hospitality Businesses

I started ROSSO DIGITAL out of my deep passion for the hospitality industry. My career spans over a decade with experience both in operational and managerial front and back of house roles in cafés, restaurants, bars, banqueting and luxury hotels.

When I moved to Sydney after working in London, studying in The Netherlands, and growing up in Germany, I was surprised by the sheer amount of large scale hospitality operators in Australia – and especially Sydney – and the power they have over the market. Through my first jobs I realised quite quickly how difficult it is for small venues to stand out next to the big players who have seemingly endless marketing budgets.

Australia has such a plethora of amazing, small hospitality businesses and many of them struggle to be seen simply because they don’t have a huge budget to spend on a full-time marketing manager or big advertising campaigns.

I have made it my mission to help these small hospitality venues show the world how great they are. I believe that every business – no matter how small – should have access to a marketing professional offering the same in-depth and hands-on support an in-house marketing manager would provide.

My approach to marketing is based on operational and revenue management experience allowing for campaigns to be highly specific to the venues’ requirements and KPIs. I always focus on ROI and will provide honest reporting including recommendations on how to move forward. Different to other digital marketing agencies, I also provide reservations and revenue management (consulting), which means I can convert social media enquiries directly from a comment or message and can advise on strategy not just from a marketing but also from a revenue and event management perspective.

We engaged Rob and now I don’t know what we would do without him. His professionalism, efficiency and creativity is second to none. There were very important day to day tasks and long term goals that had become a burden to us, Rob took on this work and made it into an exciting and more profitable area of our business. He is commercially savvy and listens to his clients but is also not afraid to speak his mind – always with the business’s best interests at heart.
