Restaurant marketing is a moving target. With very few exceptions, what’s effective one month may be less so the following month.
- That’s why it pays to keep a big pot of marketing ideas simmering. When you have many marketing techniques and sales ideas working for you, your business is more stable. You’re not susceptible to downswings in revenue should one or two of your tactics lose their punch.
The purpose of this book is to get you more customers on a regular basis. There are two ways to use these 87 pages of ideas to help you get the kind of income and stability you want:
1. Pick one idea from the book and implement it. Commit to implementing one idea per month, or per week. If you implement one idea a week, you’ll have 52 new marketing ideas working for your restaurant by the end of year one.
2. Use it as a brainstorming resource. Ask your key staff members to each take one idea and brainstorm it ten different ways. There is no right or wrong. If you have twenty people do that, you now have 200 ideas related to one topic. Or have them go through the book and pick out ten ideas they like, customized for your restaurant.
Sure, some will overlap, but you now have an idea-generating machine at work. There is bound to be one good one in the mix.
You’re busy running your restaurant so time is precious. This time-saving resource adds stability to your business and increase revenue and profit.
Every idea in this book has been tested and proven in the real world. They’ve come to us from experienced restaurateurs and consultants from around the world, both inside and outside the industry.
Of course, not every idea is for every restaurant. Yet there is indeed something profitable here for everyone, including you. Your restaurant can easily profit when you implement at least one or more of these proven tactics. We know because we’ve seen these ideas at work in the real world.
