  • ONE TO ONE ACCESSIBILITY✤ Restaurants have always been excellent at customer relations✤ For restaurant patrons, social media has facilitated getting to know the restaurant easier. But...✤ Consumers want to interact with the chef directly, both on and offline, not with the intermediary in the marketing department.✤ Expect to see personalized messages to best customers directly from the chef about menu changes, nightly specials, and suggestions based on past orders. INK FOUNDRY
  • ONE TO ONE ACCESSIBILITY✤ Chefs will manage this enhanced engagement by relying on the marketing team to first identify the restaurant’s best customers both on and offline.✤ The chef will also need to play a prominent role on the dining room floor.✤ People are looking for more personalized, direct connection with both what’s on the plate and who’s plating the food.For the complete article on how data will aid restaurants in 2012, please visit http:// www.inkfoundry.com/2011/12/restaurantmarketingtrends/
  • COUPON PERSONALIZATION✤ In 2011 restaurants experimented with social coupon sites✤ In 2012 restaurants will continue to experiment with coupons and certificates, but with more realistic expectations of results, more control, customization, and flexibility as well as insist on reporting data✤ Certificating will focus on activating top influencers to pass along coupons to their social sphere and rewarding them with value added experiences and tools and rewards to facilitate the pass along recommendation. INK FOUNDRY
  • COUPON PERSONALIZATION✤ Couponing will be more select and personalized for the brand with restaurants running their own deals to loyal customers.✤ This trend will accelerate as restaurants see the benefits in tracking and engineering word of mouth recommendations that a well designed application and program can deliver.For the complete article on how data will aid restaurants in 2012, please visit http://www.inkfoundry.com/2011/12/restaurantmarketingtrends/
  • SEARCH IS THE NEW SOCIAL✤ In 2012 we will most likely see restaurants allocating resources to local search.✤ Local search will most likely take up a greater percentage of the marketing budget than it will return.✤ Preliminary results from our current dining survey point to search as one of the least influential channels for diners.✤ Restaurants should not totally ignore search, but should earmark resources judiciously.
