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?…

Recently The Painted Table expanded to an experimental Bistro partnership.  Taming down our nouvelle style cuisine we made a menu in less than two days while "Restaurant Impossible-ing" the grime coated kitchen.  In two days we went from nothing to full fledged bistro and the discussion I bring to the table is what everyone else thinks of the differences between a line cook and a caterer.

  • 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.
    Voyce - www.myvoyce.in

    Its really elegant and innovative with the design, while clearly intelligent to ask your customers the right set of questions.

    Check them out, or drop a mail to support@myoyce.in
  • 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

Who’s winning at business news on the Web

The face of business news is changing fast, forcing established players like Bloomberg Businessweek and The Wall Street Journal to catch up as faster upstarts join the fray. We took a look at how the top business/finance news sites stack up by a variety of metrics. Yahoo Finance leads in traffic and video audience. Business Insider was second. But its ad rates can be half what the Journal charges, with its reputation for premium journalism and audience.

Copyranter: Sex just don’t sell like it used to

Sexy “sexist” ads have been in the ad news lately. Last week, a Cardiff bus company felt compelled to pull a mildly racy campaign that promoted all-day tickets because of some negative feedback. A recent report by Ameritest, one of the industry’s leading advertising testing firms, found that sex actually doesn’t sell. But perhaps the biggest problem with every “sexy” spot currently running, argues copyratner, isn’t the sex; it’s the stupidity. The models are attached to the ads as an afterthought; they’re not integral to a selling concept.

From war zone to boardroom: The improbable rise of BroadbandTV’s Shahrzad Rafati

Born in 1979 Tehran, Shahrzad Rafati moved from Iran to Vancouver at age 17 to pursue the freedom and opportunity she couldn’t find in her home country. In 2005, she started a media company called BroadbandTV, which today nets more than 4 billion video views across the 32,000 content creators in its network. It has become a powerful force in online video, earning Rafati respect from the media and tech industries. “We need more examples of great women leaders who are not afraid,” said Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce.com.
