At Freebookings we love Twitter, and how it allows us to take part in discussions, share ideas, keep up with the world, and see what our favorite restaurants are doing.
With all the latest updates streaming through to our smartphones, catching up on the casual information that adds spice to the day is just so simple and convenient.
To contribute some useful information we started posting tips and ideas around restaurant marketing, ideas we have seen or heard about being executed with good results. By using the hash-tag #RestaurantIdeas all the tweets become easy to find. Just search for “#RestaurantIdeas” or click this link to follow new ideas as they are posted.
Below you find a round up of the tweets from last week. We will keep posting an idea a day for as long as we can come up with them (which will be a long time as we love shooting ideas around the office). There are so many things that can be done to drive restaurant business and awareness, other than just doing discounts and Groupon-style daily deals!
We would love it if you added your own best restaurant ideas and suggestions to the list. Show off your creativity! You don’t need to post on marketing, but to keep it focused it would be great if it is a tip on how to improve restaurant business. Just don’t forget to add the hash-tag: #RestaurantIdeas
Email customers each Monday with weekly specials. For each special, the first X orders sell for $3 off, then regular price. #RestaurantIdeas
