Attract Customers to Your Restaurant with Coupons

But once you’ve opened your doors you know there’s no going back – its sink or swim from here on out. By the time you get there you are flat broke and there is little or no money left over for advertising! So you need to think outside the box a little.

Coupons for first time…

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?…

Why UX is the next battlefront in the war for agency talent

UX is the next battleground in the war for agent talent. David Eastman, partner MCD Partners and formed JWT N.A. CEO, says that's because of a palpable shift in the culture that has put UX and experience above tech. That doesn't mean engineers aren't important but that experience is more important. On the agency side, UX is more important than ever as clients prize testing and campaign running. But agencies seem to be getting the short end of the stick: They pay less, and, more important, as Deutsch ecd of platforms Tara Greer says, the work tends to be more monotonous and less interesting. One fix would be to prize product development above all at agencies.

4 things we learned about the music-streaming industry

The audio landscape is maturing, with listenership growing alongside advertisers’ expectations for the medium. Last week, executives from Pandora, Spotify and Triton Digital discussed progress, frustrations and opportunities in the music-streaming industry. We learned a number of things: 4 million people are streaming digital audio at any given moment, according to upcoming research from Triton Digital; 40 percent of digital audio impressions are still “dumb,” meaning they don't have location or demographic data attached to them; the music streamers are pushing for new ad campaign performance indicators, trying to edge marketers off of click-through rates; and programmatic advertising is coming to audio, slowly.

Copyranter: Stop hiring journalists to write native ads

There are two reasons why more and more major sites like Huffington Post, Mashable (yuck), and Gawker are paying journalists to write native ads and sponsored posts: They think it makes their money-making content less skeevy, and they think that ad copywriters can’t write long-form as well as journalists. Both of these reasons, argues Copyrather, are poppycock. Because journalistic ad posts further blur the line between editorial and advertorial, they’re blatantly more skeevy. And while journalists, generally, may be better at journalistic prose than ad copywriters, CWs (the good ones) know damn well how to write long copy. But theirs, through training, is a different style. It’s entertaining, but it also sells. And if your native ad doesn’t sell (or increase brand awareness) what is it good for?
