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

Regarding Recode: Brand-name journalists do not a business plan make

Reporters excel at covering other people's businesses, the thinking goes, so they should be able to run businesses of their own. Not so fast. Recode, helmed by veteran reporters Walter Mossberg and Kara Swisher, was independent for just 18 months before its founders sold it to Vox Media this week, a move that signals just how hard it is for reporters to cross over to the business side.

A tale of two ad products: YouTube’s shoppable ads vs. Google’s click-to-buy button

Not long after Google added a click-to-buy feature to product search, the company rolled out shoppable YouTube ads. But unlike the buy buttons, the YouTube ads are more likely to encourage mobile influence than actual sales. "The scale of mobile influence doesn’t even compare to the scale of purchases," said Mabel McLean, associate at L2. But influence is still valuable: Wayfair and Sephora have seen positive results from the ads in beta mode, and Wayfair's media manager Ben Young said it plans to continue incorporating them into its video strategy.

5 ways Time Inc. is trying to make paywalls work

Time Inc. is struggling to reverse its ad-revenue declines, so like other publishers, it’s looking to consumers to make up the difference. But hard paywalls risk loss of traffic and associated advertising. So with Entertainment Weekly, the first of several brands to roll out a paywall, the publisher is taking a metered approach, protecting search and social clicks, and pushing for registration data to sell people other products and services. “We need to make sure our system is flexible,” said Stephen Selwood, svp of brand marketing and revenue.

How the Air Force competes with Google for millennial recruits

The Air Force's latest recruitment drive is a traveling experiential event packed with futuristic games and experiences to attract tech-minded youth at high schools, state fairs and air shows across the country. It features Kinect 2 technology that facilitates a pull-up challenge, for instance, as well as a virtual flying test enabled by Oculus Rift technology. “Since the Air Force mission relies on having the most updated technology, it’s imperative that our recruiting assets also reflect the fact that the Air Force continually strives to be highly technical,” said Major Jacob Chisolm, Chief of the Air Force National Events Branch.
