Social Media for Restaurants: Facebook Page Comments

Listen, and listen up good.  Do not, I repeat, do not delete comments and tags on your companies Facebook page. If you don't know what being "tagged" means, it's when a fan updates their status and adds your company name via an @ (at) reply.  The comment then shows on your fan page.  Pictures tell stories. See picture below.I get it.…See More

Social Media: Facebook asks the community for edits

 Facebook is constantly changing. For some changes they hold conferences. For others they are so subtle you would miss them if you weren't paying attention. This is one of them.  Facebook is going the way of crowd sourcing to improve their Pages. I noticed this yesterday:While visiting a page a popup message asked "Tell us more.  Add your knowledge to this community".  Any…See More

Should Food Safety be Mandatory for all?

Posted on March 14, 2011 at 2:30pm 0 Comments

 
There is no doubt that food safety is critical.  With Michigan requiring that you only need one certified food safety manager, is that enough?



During a recent food safety managers class an interesting discussion took place regarding that question.



The students who were restaurant employees mentioned their concern with taking time off for certification.  The… Continue

Social Media: Simplicity is the name of the game

Posted on March 14, 2011 at 12:00pm 0 Comments





You spend a lot of time brainstorming how to engage your customers. You finally get them to Facebook, then proceed to divide their attention by giving them 5 or more tabs to choose from.  Not only that, but each tab has multiple actions required.



Remember the old adage, keep it simple.



To get the most out of your Facebook page you need fans.  Considering the average Facebook fan page has less than 100 likes, how do you do this?  Some simple… Continue

Our restaurant doesn't need a website...

Posted on March 14, 2011 at 6:53am 0 Comments





Really? No call out here. Let's just say I've heard those words recently. And it wasn't the first time.



As a business owner, I'm amazed at the number of companies that feel as if having a presence on the web is all about them. That if they deem it unnecessary, so do their customers.



I'm not saying every business needs a website or web presence, but maybe I should. Every business needs a website.



Don't take my word for it, let's look at the… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
