Free Download: Mobile App Tactics For Restaurants
Many restaurants offer discounts and deals to entice repeat business, or even new business. This is not a new idea and it works. However, the problem with traditional print advertising is the cost. It can get expensive very quickly.
That’s why mobile apps for restaurants are such a wonderful opportunity. You can take advantage of a better marketing tool that is on the cutting edge of technology to increase your bottom line. And restaurants are one of the easiest industries to see almost immediate results from something much more affordable than print advertising.
List Building With Mobile Apps
You can quickly build your customer subscriber list with your own mobile app. Use your banners, signs and table tents to promote it. Entice customers to download it by offering a freebie, discount or giveaway. Be sure to have your hostess and waiters mention this. There are numerous special offers you can promote.
Here are three specific ideas you can offer every customer who walks through your door as a way of saying ‘thanks‘ for downloading your restaurant’s mobile app. They are then saved in your app database.
A Free Dessert Next Visit!
Create more repeat business by offering a coupon for their next visit. You can use a minimum purchase coupon that will expire within a couple of weeks.
A Free Appetizer THIS VISIT!
If you want to build a list of your customers quickly, this has shown great success with restaurant servers offering an instant free appetizer (or soft drinks or dessert) for downloading your app.
A Chance To Win Something Cool!
Get customers to download your app (and join your subscriber list) by offering a chance to win a great prize. This is probably the least effective method to get subscribers, but it can work if you promote it correctly.
These can all be coupons offered immediately after they download the app. They show their server and are excited about the deal, you get a subscriber and thrilled customer who will probably tell all their friends about you (and your mobile app).
Getting Subscribers To Walk Through The Door
Not only does using a mobile app for your restaurant build a list, but you can use it to get those customers to walk through the door more often. You can even get them to show up on your slowest nights!
Our mobile app software utilizes the latest technology to let you send PUSH notifications, or text messages, within your app. It will pop up right on your customers’ cell phones. 97% of push notifications are opened within 48 hours and you need to use this statistic to your advantage. Here’s an example.
If you are a Mexican restaurant and your slowest night is Thursday, then you schedule a push notification to go out on Thursday at 3:30pm. That push might say something like:
Jose’s Cantina: $1 Margaritas with Dinner Entree. Tonight only from 4:30pm to 7:00pm. Just show this message to your server.
Do you think you will have customers showing up for this special deal? Absolutely. And they will probably send that offer to their friends.
