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.

  • 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

Now playing on Facebook: Floating videos

Facebook is tinkering with video again. The social network started rolling out a button that lets videos float in the corner while they continue to scan elsewhere. The videos disappear if you click to another part of the website. Facebook hopes to cash in on selling more ads against video, so letting users watch at their own pace and position could help them.

Why Vox makes its own banner ads

For publishers combatting sinking display ad CPMs, one solution is the custom ad unit. By creating their own high-impact formats from scratch, publishers hope to draw the eye of brands looking for something more splashy than standard banners. The challenge: like native ads, custom display units require lots of effort to put together and only work on specific sites, which limits brand interest.

Paula Deen’s son appears in brownface, has some explaining to do

Paula Deen posted a photo of her son Bobby in brownface to Twitter. Dressed as Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, the tweet read, “Lucyyyyyyy! You got a lot of esplainin’ to do!” and included the hashtag ‪#TransformationTuesday. It comes less than a year after Deen told the Today Show’s Matt Lauer she had “learned her lesson” after being dropped from the Food Network over a racial discrimination scandal. Twitter was not amused.
