If you’re in the food delivery business, then you know by now that success is not only based on the premium quality of your products and services, but also on knowing your customers really well and developing a close relationship with them.

Why your Restaurant needs Social Media

Nowadays almost any restaurant sets up a Facebook page for marketing purposes, to advertise their business or engage with their customers. But if you’re still not so sure why you should dive into social media, then we’ll have you know that . Just take a look around: everyone is on their smartphones, often checking their Facebook news feed, so grab that opportunity to be where you customers are!

Now if you’ve decided that a Facebook page is indeed worth your time and energy, naturally there will be some questions on how to best take advantage of it.

So here are some tips to help increase the ‘exciting’ factor of your business through your Facebook page.

5 Tips for a Cool and Engaging Restaurant Facebook Page

Create contests:中文中幕无码亚洲视频 It has been proven that this is one of the best ways to engage users/customers on Facebook. It can be anything: have your customers post funny pictures of themselves with their favorite food; post a food-related animated pic and have your customers imagine funny captions etc. And don’t forget to throw in a good incentive, a contest isn’t worth much without a prize: a discount on a future order or a small, yet tasty and thoughtful gift certificate for the picture with most likes could be a good example.

Post pictures and stories:中文中幕无码亚洲视频 Yes, customers do love a good story, and all the more when it’s about some food they enjoy. Maybe you are known for serving really good pizza, then let them read a bit about the history of pizza. Or maybe there is some secret recipe to one of your meals, and the customers could guess its origin or unexpected combination of ingredients.

Make it personal:中文中幕无码亚洲视频 Let your customers take a peek in the backstage of your business, let them have a taste of the running of your kitchen (you could do that by posting pics or short clips from the making of a meal). Or let them know more about one of your chefs, who each day pours their soul into preparing delicious food. There’s nothing a customer will love more than being able to connect with your brand at a personal, human level.

Announce your promotions/new menus: Let your customers know that they’re in for a really good deal. Write a short and concise post about the new offers in your restaurant or about the upcoming items on the menu.

Announce daily specials. If you have that offer, then make sure to update your Facebook page daily. Add a good looking picture while you’re at it, it catches the eye faster.
