Customer Retention - Listen to them

Today, is the day of the most digitally empowered customers! Your guests/customers don't like the experience at your restaurant, they will actively look out to voice their opinion.

  • So, is generating sales via online food ordering more important to an operator than managing their reputation?
  • 32 percent of U.S. teens named Instagram the most important social network...so what are restaurateurs doing about that?
  • When a company pivots, doe they leave their business model behind or, leverage legacy assets?
  • The day after Easter? Watch out for egg salad specials :)
  • The importance of customer feedbacks that will drive insightful actions and measurement of a restaurant performance is ever Increasing.

    A startup called Afterall, has developed a product for just the same.

  • Seems that smarter restuarants win, when they know what their customers really want...basics like good food, good service and a clean, quality environment. Sounds good to us!
  • Internet commerce for restaurants will absolutely make a difference and help define your success in 2015

Digiday Podcast: Redef’s Jason Hirschhorn on building a media brand

While Jason Hirschhorn's MediaRedef newsletter has been largely a labor of love for the better part of the last decade, Hirschhorn is now taking a stab at making Redef a self-sustaining business. He raised $2 million in seed funding last year, which he’s used to hire both curators and developers. He said the plan is to push Redef as a subscription product for both individuals and companies. He’s also considering pushing into events. He talked to The Digiday Podcast about the company's evolution.

How Sephora blended a stand-out beauty video strategy

Sephora is using video as a beauty retailer should: with lots of tutorials. The videos are part of Sephora's strong digital strategy (the company opened its Digital Innovation Lab in March) that spans channels. Whether customers are shopping in stores, online or on mobile, video tutorials are at the ready to spur a well-informed purchase. "They create all these access points, not just to get you to buy but to give you the knowledge as well," said Jessica Navas, chief planning officer at Erwin Penland.

BuzzFeed’s news is growing, but still a small part of its traffic

The viral news publisher has made a push into hard news, with nearly half its editorial staff devoted to traditional news stories. But the vast majority of its traffic is still driven by entertainment and lifestyle content. Seventeen percent of its traffic in April, the first month BuzzFeed started breaking out its lifestyle channels, was coming to news. Shani Hilton, executive editor for news, said her goal isn’t necessarily to drive the most traffic, though, but to be “as high impact as possible.”

Copyranter: Angry area man baffled by BS buzzwords

There are a lot of smart people in a lot of fields trying to make advertising more complicated than it actually is, trying to make it a science, trying to make it less “addy,” argues copyranter. And so "content" becomes a fraudulent new word for “advertising” because nobody likes ads even though every “content” website in cyberspace needs ads to survive. And "storytelling"? Any piece of brand “content” that is a bald-faced lie. Just don't ask him what a "curated brand experience" is.
