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?

 
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.

Social Media: Simplicity is the name of the game





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.

Our restaurant doesn't need a website...





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
