We work with people who are crazy enough to get into the hospitality industry and stay there. People who pour their hearts into what they make and do. People who support farmers and other local businesses, love to collaborate, and always have a good story to tell. We work with artists who use visuals to bring together communities and shrink the world.

WHAT WE DO


Because your tenth impression matters just as much as your first.

WHAT WE DO


Because your tenth impression matters just as much as your first.

Need a social media strategist to team up with your current PR rep? We do that. Ready to announce your new concept with a killer pop-up? That's our jam. Dim Sum Media is about checking the boxes you want- a plan that works for you and your budget, not a fixed price package full of services you didn't order.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Strong photography is the heartbeat of Dim Sum Media. Each photo shines as much on an Instagram feed as it would in print. Collaborating with chefs, bartenders, and baristas is the best way to create high quality photography that tells a story in a tone unique to your business.

Press

Dim Sum Media has earned clients press in Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, BBC, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, Travel + Leisure, Food52, Imbibe, Kinfolk Magazine, Wall Street Journal, Craftsmanship Magazine, Washington Post, Washingtonian, Washington CIty Paper, Eater, Thrillist, Washington Post Express, Northern Virginia Magazine, On Tap Magazine, Washington Business Journal, TimeOut, DC Modern Luxury, and more.

SOCIAL MEDIA

We don't just manage your social media, we strategize to grow your following and engagement, and translate those numbers into revenue. Understanding resources relevant to these fast-changing platforms means posts get the most mileage, and analytic reports help business owners understand who those posts reach.

WEB & email campaigns

We create and update custom websites, and fill those websites with client-specific content that effectively drives traffic- playlists, blog posts about makers and staff, photo galleries, and more that build a following.

Our clients have seen mail list growth of over 300% in the first year of working with us. Email campaigns match the personality of each business, and their target demographic.

EVENTS

We've got a reputation for sold out events, like the most successful pop-ups DC has seen in recent years. Bad Saint and Mason Dixie at the Dolcezza Factory, and ANXO at Colony Club saw rapid ticket sales, long lines, and hundreds of very full guests. DC has boundless talent and interesting spaces-- we bring them together.

WORKSHOPS

We win together. The DC hospitality industry is full of oddballs with incredible skills and a knack for sharing. We want to see our community grow as one. Dim Sum hosts workshops with our talented friends to share knowledge (social media management, food styling, and more) so that we all have the resources to represent ourselves well. Stay up to date with our upcoming workshops, discussions and celebrations here.
