Health Inspections 101

In all my years of running restaurants, health inspections have always been impromptu, meaning, I've never had a health inspector call me up and say, “Please get prepared, I’ll be by in two days to do an inspection.”  Wouldn't that have been nice?  

Despite the ice that runs through your veins when you hear, “The Health Inspector is here” that big, bad health inspector did not come to huff and puff and blow your restaurant down.  As a matter of fact, they’re…

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?…

Confessions of a tech journo turned flak: ‘This industry is a mess’

In the latest Digiday Confession, we asked a ex-tech reporter to take us through the grind and explain why they're not stressing over joining the dark side. "I had an hourlong conversation with my editor about not being consistent with my copy (grammar and such gets sacrificed when you're moving that fast) and that I needed to do more in-depth reporting. This was the same editor that instructed me to cover nine stories in a single day."

Programmatic Viewability: Possibility or pipe dream?

In a real-time bidding (RTB) environment, the foundation of all programmatic platforms, agencies and buyers can enable pre-bid targeting parameters. In recent years, these pre-bid filters have become more and more sophisticated. This is where viewability comes into play. Many DSPs have begun dipping their toes into pre-bid viewability filtering, which allows buyers to weed out the waste before activating a buy. But can viewability measures truly exist within a bidding environment? Sponsor content by D360.

How #brands can #hashtag like #champs

The hashtag is a filter for online chatter. It’s a shorthand. It’s a rally cry. And, most important, it is a formidable marketing tool at the hands of brands. Yet brands often struggle in their composition. The key for brands is to keep them simple, experiment with them and know their audiences. "Brands must not forget how to innovate to go beyond the simple best practices," said Orli LeWinter, vp of Strategy/Social Marketing at 360i.
