Attract Customers to Your Restaurant with Coupons

Starting a restaurant isn’t easy and it takes a HUGE amount of capital to just to get to your ‘Grand Opening’. Furniture, cutlery, crockery, equipment, decorating – it seems to never end! 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?…

How Thrillist proves brand content works

Thrillist Media Group's CoLab, which launched earlier this month, is different from other publisher content studios. Its agency was created with a single goal in mind: Engineering its branded content based not only on advertiser goals but with a previously unheard-of level of research. The 16-person team has developed dozens of best practices from a range of quantitative editorial insights (30 brand-terms per article drives maximum purchase intent, for example) to design guidelines (the strongest banner ads contain 30 percent direct branding). An in-house tool called Branding Cell helps writers brainstorm a range of terms — both heavily branded and loosely branded — which are then used to guide the process of content creation.

Post-mortem: Why Scientology’s ‘Going Clear’ Twitter attack backfired

The Church of Scientology may be a master at using legal threats to silence its critics, but its Twitter campaign against the HBO documentary "Going Clear" showed a lack of understanding of the platform. Use of its @FreedomEthics hashtag had an amateurish feel, and according to Crimson Hexagon, sentiment around it was mostly negative. “Scientology has an infamous history of being very aggressive in defending itself, through harassment in the form of lawsuits,” said film critic Scott Tobias. “When you do that publicly, the impact is not the same. It’s coming across as vindictive and bullying."

Confessions of a Comcast customer service rep: ‘I don’t personally care.’

Comcast announced this month that it would be tripling the size of its social media department in order to push part of its customer service online. But it's its call center that's been in the spotlight for cringe-worthy calls that went viral in the past year. One representative gives us an anonymous, inside look at what it's like on the other end of the 1-800-COMCAST line. A tip for customers? Be nice. "If you’re degrading me and being awful to me, why would I want to help you?"

Why card-linked marketing is the next step in retargeting

All of the card-based digital transactions we make now leave behind a pretty accurate picture of our buying habits, tastes and preferences. Card-linked marketing uses that real purchase data to target specific consumers based on real buying behavior. While keeping individual bank data private and secure, advertisers are able to cut down on waste by zeroing in on active buyers in their category at scale. Sponsor content by Cardlytics.
