What will motivate MUCCI is the shear excitment of being in anyway a part of what FohBoh is doing! This is cutting edge Histroy in the making here folks. Just like MUCCI'S Bistro is too!

I like this answer!

Gift certificates to cool places like Amazon, ITunes, etc.

I would probably most motivated to participate if I knew that my restaurant of choice could recieve some benefit. How about featuring the participant's choice of restaurants in a social media makeover?

Like MUCCI, I am always up for being a part of something innovative.  If I get a little exposure for my company in the process, that's great too.

I think offering restaurant discounts or buy one/get one free drink app is motivation, and depending on the member's level of participation, have a drawing every 3 mos or so for dinner for two at one of FohBoh's member restaurants to appreciate the member's time and input.

The concept of being asked for one's opinions and ideas is exhilerating, add to that a gift certificate or airline miles ......outstanding!

Giving back is great AND Gift Certificates are great too.  I serve a lot of associations and groups who constantly need gift cards for various reasons and so this becomes a way to help me, help you and help them!  Especially around the holidays!  Thanks for asking!  Denise

Hi There,  I participated in an Online Forum a couple years ago.  There, participants were awarded with Amazon.com credit.  It was great since you can accumulate as much $ credit as you want before purchasing something AND Amazon has practically anything you could want (for yourself or for a loved one). 


One element that really encouraged participation was the clear communication of how much credit, $, reward a 'post' or activity would get you.  That way, participants always knew how much they were going to get for a 'job well done.'


Glad to be participating in this panel.  I hope to share opinions and thoughts as well as learn from the group.

I would prefer a Visa or MC gift card or a prepaid, reloadable card instead of gift certificates. I like the reloadable card even better because you (FohBoh) can add money to it and I can spend it anywhere I want. Gift certificates are limited, you can only use them at the place that issues them.

Will work for wine :)  Actually, it looks like there are many great suggestions in this string.

Get an app for the iphone ;) it has revolutionized my ability to keep up my social media on the go...
