Saving Money through Effective Restaurant Mobile Marketing

leave a comment »

Your customers are very important to your restaurant because without them, your business wouldn’t thrive. You need to find a way to make them loyal to your business. Having a good restaurant marketing strategy can help create this relationship.

Increasing your number of customers and making them loyal to your restaurant can be done using different ways. Freebies, discounts and exceptional customer service are ways to please your customers. However, SMS marketing is a more effective approach you can use for your restaurant. With this form of restaurant marketing, you send ads as text messages to your customers. You can send menus, new dishes or discounts and they can respond to them immediately.

Also if you have a good offer, your ads can be forwarded to their friends and this can effectively increase your patrons. This is not only limited to restaurant marketing but can also be used as a way for you to reach out to your customers. Knowing what they really want will help improve your restaurant. For example, you can ask your customers to suggest their favorite dishes so that you can expand your menu. Making their favorite dish a part of your menu makes them feel important and gives them reasons to come back to your restaurant.

This restaurant marketing method doesn’t only reduce the money spent in ads but also helps keep your customers loyal and happy. The savings you get can be allotted to other things like upgrading of internal processes or adding more staff to improve customer service. This maximizes the use of your resources and reduces wasted time and money.

This restaurant marketing technique not only costs less but also allows your business to be constantly connected to your customers. Allowing them to actively participate in your business creates a strong business relationship. To learn more about marketing through text messaging, check out Qittle Mobile Marketing

Restaurant Marketing Ideas

leave a comment »

Restaurant marketing isn’t easy because competition in the food business is very tight. If you own a restaurant, looking for an affordable yet effective marketing strategy is very important.

There are other ways to market your restaurant aside from having the usual TV or print ads. Text marketing costs less and is more effective in reaching your customers. Text marketing also allows you to communicate effectively with your consumer population.

Using text messaging can be a powerful tool in restaurant marketing. You can create an interactive marketing program that will allow all of your subscribers to participate. Through an open communication, priorities shift from your products to your customers resulting to a good number of loyal clients. You can send your customers discounts or inform them about your specialty of the day. This creates a strong connection between your business and your customers.

Text marketing also allows you to send text messages in a timely manner. Send a promo just before lunch to create the urgency to avail it. Most people will always go for the one that can save them money. With this method of restaurant marketing, your message is delivered directly and read by your customers immediately. If a customer is not ready to take your offer, they can forward it to their friends who might be interested. Since your program is an opt-in service, your customers are confident that the information they receive is not something they don’t need. Text marketing can certainly increase your profits by increasing your customers and reducing marketing costs.

Using text messaging for restaurant marketing is very effective in improving your business.

Mobile Campaign for Restaurant Marketing

leave a comment »

Did you ever wonder why the not-so-good restaurant across the street has more customers than your very-classy-yet-affordable restaurant? The other restaurant probably has an effective restaurant marketing strategy.

Conventional advertising methods may be expensive but there are better and more effective alternatives to these advertising techniques. If you want people to know more about your restaurant and take advantage of your great meal promos and deals, then why not use a mobile campaign for restaurant marketing?

Restaurant marketing needs not be very expensive. With a mobile campaign, you can create great advertisements and be able to reach a whole lot of people compared to traditional methods of
marketing. A mobile campaign allows you to reach out to your customers at a more individualized level.

With this kind of advertising strategy, your customers have control over the kind of advertisements they receive from your business. If a customer only wants to receive information on your lunch specials, she’d have a greater possibility of responding to your lunch special ads than as compared to you sending out generic advertisements.

With mobile marketing, you can send out specific advertisements at specific times of the day. This means, you can send lunch meal promos and dinner rates during hours that your customers might be figuring out what to have for that meal, making it convenient for your busy customers to decide to eat at your restaurant because they receive not only a deal but also a reminder that you’re out there!

Restaurant text campaign example Arby’s

leave a comment »

Arby’s text campaign is a good example of how simple a restaurant can launch a successful mobile marketing campaign. Walk into an Arby’s and you’ll see table tents with the program. You get a free Beef Cheedar sandwich when you text in. That’s a few dollars worth of value for people Opting into the campaign. Well worth the effort!

Things to take away from Arby’s

1. Promote the program in the store

2. A good offer for Opt in

3. Decide to do mobile and stick with it!

The number of mobile Opt in’s will increase over time, this is a graph of one of our more successful clients. They are offering a great Opt in reward and month over month their data base is growing.
