HUNGRY FOR PROFITS: Restaurants To Go
How Restaurants Can Sell More with Mobile Marketing
This presentation was given by Brad Bierman of ATS Mobile at the recent Ocean City, MD Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association trade show in March, 2014.
In the presentation, Bierman discusses SMS Text Message Marketing, Mobile Websites, Apps, and promoting your restaurant via mobile advertising. The value of a custom, branded QR code is also discussed.
Restaurants need to have a website that is optimized for the smaller screen of the mobile phone, but also is ideal for both tablets and desktop PC's. Only with responsive design can a restaurant truly accomplish this. With responsive design, the same elements of the website are used regardless of the type of viewing device. And, as an added bonus, Google has already stated that responsive design is the best method for increasing search engine rankings.
Specific case studies discussed include Nu Balance, K&J Pizza, Subway, and Cheerwine.
Particular attention was given to the idea of geo-location mobile advertising buys. With geo-targeting, a restaurant can just serve its mobile advertising to those within a certain radius of the restaurant. This means considerably less waste than with traditional media.
