10 restaurant tips to drive revenue during covid-19
Over the last few months it has been a huge challenge for local businesses and we want to support you every way we can. Here are a some ideas to help you engage with your customers online, boost awareness about your current offering and to help keep moving your business forward.
- Communicate everywhere. Let your customers know that you are open for business. You can do this on social media, over email and on your website (any place customers will look). Remember to include any changes to your hours, locations, special offers and promotions, safety measures, payment options and delivery or collection systems. Also let customers know how important they are to your business and how every order helps towards keeping your business going.
- Show what you have. Show your customers what is available for delivery and pickup. Appeal to their desires and cravings (we all get sick of cooking after a while)
- Create a sign for your door. If your located on a high street or a place with continued footfall, when customers leave their homes for some much needed fresh air they might walk by your premises. Put a sign on the door showing what you are offering and to let them know you are still trading for delivery or pickup. Along with this don’t forget to add all the ways they can contact you and your website and social media details.
- Gift Cards. People want to support you and what better way than encouraging them to buy a gift card to use for themselves or donate to delivery or key workers in your area.
