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. If the medium they choose to do so is on the internet forums (like Zomato, Yelp etc), then we have a problem. Negative word-of-mouth. This again leads to the dreadful phenomenon of Customer churn. Which means, you need to spent a lot more on advertising  than to grow your customer base Automatically. So now what?…

  • 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.

  • We still believe the mobile and web food order sector is just beginning to affect change in the marketplace. New, fully-evolved business models track consumer behavior and it's all about delivery.
  • Going to attend a event with my catering staff..
  • 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

The platform trying to solve beacon messaging’s spam problem

When retailers have the ability to shoot messages to users' personal phones, they run the risk of irritating their customers. To avoid that, beacon platform Phigital focused on the user experience. "People should have a choice in what they’re receiving” said Phigital co-founder Paul Cheng. Rather than the push notifications associated with beacons, Phigital users receive "pull" notifications, meaning they only get the types of messages that they've selected as relevant to them. On the opposite end, retailers can learn more about -- and remember -- their high value customers, an important tool.

Inside Wendy’s in-house tech innovation lab

Want a Wendy’s cheeseburger? You can already purchase one using mobile payment or through beacon-based ordering. And soon, you may just be able to order a burger using your car’s connected devices. Wendy's has instituted a new tech lab next to Ohio State University's campus in Columbus, Ohio, to fast-track such digital and technology initiatives for its restaurants and consumers. In doing so, it joins other brands such as Domino's, Starbucks and GE which have been pioneering tech innovation in their products and marketing. "The labs will be an important asset in Wendy’s continuing transformation, as we work to drive growth by making our restaurants more inviting and by giving consumers greater access to our brand through technology,” said Emil Brolick, Wendy’s' CEO and president.

Timeline: Tech companies hiring journalists through the years

Journalists are in high demand at tech companies. Facebook, Twitter and even Snapchat are on the hunt for media talent that can both tell their stories and help the companies cozy up to media organizations. While the reporter resumes vary, the ideal journalist candidate seems to be the reporter or social media editor who has already show an affinity for the brand. Newsweek’s Mark Coatney, for example, was a big Tumblr proponent before Tumblr hired him away in 2010. Now he's a digital media consultant.
