Two Chicks, Three Seats Episode 80: Creating Hospitality Industry Video Content for Social Media with Latasha James, Founder & Creative Director of James + Park


How are you representing your hospitality business on social media? Creating a strong social media presence for your restaurant, hotel, or unique venue in the hospitality industry is critical so potential customers can learn about your business before walking through your front door. Social media gives a first impression of what guests could experience when it comes to your menus, business values, and the overall environment within your restaurant.

One powerful way to portray yourself on social media is by creating relevant video content to tell your business story. Video is also one of the key aspects of the algorithms on social media today. So, how do you make hospitality industry video content for social media? We are happy you asked.

On the latest episode of Tripleseat’s podcast, Two Chicks, Three Seats, my co-host Kate Kennedy and I are joined by Latasha James, Founder & Creative Director of James + Park, a social-first video marketing firm serving clients throughout the globe. Latasha is a marketing strategist, digital content creator, and coach with years of experience creating successful video marketing strategies.

We chatted with Latasha about the steps to grow your hospitality business’ social media presence using video.
