So Many Apps, So Little Time: A focus on mobile apps


Published on

If you’ve wondered whether you should expand your online footprint beyond your business’ website but aren’t quite sure how to proceed, the Ohio Restaurant Association (ORA) has your answer. The ORA Restaurant Education Series (RES) is presenting a free social media webinar series that will help you reach guests and boost your revenue.

Each webinar in the series is dedicated to a different subject matter that will allow participants to focus on one social media platform at a time; to make decisions about which platforms work best for them; and to ask questions of Shon Christy, founder of Eat Drink Promote and host of all of the webinars in this series, one of the industry’s premier subject matter experts in online promotions.

This session focused on mobile apps; what are the popular ones out there for restaurants and why you might want to use them to increase sales.
