Restaurant Digital Marketing – How Can You Compete?
Social Media Marketing
Our content creation team will help you produce quality content that teaches your customers more about your business. You source your food from favorite recipes, nutrition, and more. You can virtually invite customers into your kitchen for behind the scenes clips and professional tips from your chefs.
PPC & Google Ads
Your website often is the first interaction customers have with your restaurant, whether it be just browsing the menu or placing an online order for delivery. You want your menu items accurately depicted with beautiful, high-definition photos & bright colors – making customers’ mouths water and urging them to dine.
There is no better way to reach potential, current, and past diners than the way they want to be contacted: email! Not only do your customers prefer this method of communication, but you can easily keep them informed on your seasonal menus and weekend specials through a personalized approach. From custom newsletters to triggered automatons, we do it all. Your restaurant will never be more connected with your customers.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
95% of the time, customers turn to Google whenever they are looking for a place to eat near them. Be the restaurant that shows up first and grabs their attention. With SEO, your restaurant can rank at the top of local searches and be the first restaurant to quench a thirst or curb a craving.
Restaurant Marketing in 2021
In the last year, restaurants have seen an 83% growth in online ordering. Most of these orders were 32% larger in size than your typical walk-in or call-in orders. Your customers love the ability to customize almost every piece of their order.
Other than ordering online, the data you can gather from digital marketing is invaluable. Through digital marketing, you can learn the demographics, behaviors, and interests of your customers. Utilize this data with your area, and you have a robust digital marketing strategy. Your restaurant will be a tough one to beat.
Digital Marketing for the Restaurant Industry
Digital marketing gives you the tools and the opportunity to start winning the loyalty game among customers. You can create a loyal customer that will return to your restaurant time and time again, “regulars,” if you will. Most people think the marketing for restaurants is just about getting customers in the door, but it is about so much more than that. It’s about keeping your customers returning to your restaurant by keeping them informed, offering discounts, and sharing your knowledge. Restaurant owners that we work with see the following benefits from our marketing efforts:
- Increase in foot traffic
- Increase in revenue from sales
- Greater check amounts
- Larger profit margins
- Improved branding
- Repeat customers and new customers
The ultimate benefit of digital marketing, but ironically the least measurable, is word of mouth marketing. When your business is booming, people talk, especially about great restaurants with even better food and service. And 90% of people believe the recommendations friends and peers give them. Marketing your restaurant digitally will help you be one of those restaurants they recommend.
