Biography
My interest in food goes back to childhood; I could be found hanging in the kitchen with the adults just as often as running around with the other kids. I've run a personal chef business, managed the project management team for an internet marketing agency focused upon hospitality websites and currently am a partner in TwoTables Internet Marketing.

Facebook Places and Deals - Is Your Restaurant Using These Tools?

Posted on November 4, 2010 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

I just wrote a quick blog post at our website regarding yesterday's launch of Facebook Deals and wondered how many FohBoh enthusiasts are utilizing Facebook Places?



Facebook Places rolled out in August and now any retailer can claim their Place from their Business Page. Hopefully a lot of you have already done this but if not, it takes just a moment and once done, your customers can check in (a la Foursquare) at your location via Facebook's IPhone app or other access-ready mobile… Continue

Travel Expected To Increase; How Can Restaurants Draw in Tourists?

Posted on November 18, 2009 at 12:06pm 0 Comments

Deloitte published a study today announcing that 45% of American households are planning an overnight trip that includes a stay in a hotel or other lodging facility from now until March 2010. This opens some doors to restaurant marketers to put their eateries in front of these visitors. What's the best way for a restaurant business to market to tourists visiting their city? My suggestions include local search marketing, upgrading the restaurant's… Continue

September 20 was the official end of summer in Colorado! It was also the first day of the Great American Dine Out and Matt and I set out on our seven-day quest to support restaurants participating in the Dine Out event. Our first two stops were Crested Butte and Aspen, two gorgeous mountain towns that fed us well. We're updating in more detail on our… Continue

Is Social Media Enough for Online Success?

Posted on July 31, 2009 at 10:25am 1 Comment

Poll your friends in the restaurant industry about online marketing and my guess is that most, if not all, would define internet marketing as social networking, email marketing or some combination of the two. Twitter, FaceBook, MySpace, blogging and newsletters garner the vast majority of buzz surrounding online marketing for restaurants these days and believe me, I'm not arguing against building a solid social media campaign nor am I questioning the returns a business can see from an effective… Continue

Hi Alyson, the 60% - 85% range is a fairly conservative combination of a few data sets as I felt it was more accurate to provide a range rather than a definitive number. The first source is the AIS Media’s 2007 National Restaurant Consumer Internet Usage Survey, which showed that 89% of people did some form of research online prior to eating out and 57% viewed the restaurant's website prior to dining there. The other source is a tool that Google offers, Google Insights, which displays how many searches have been done for a particular term, relative to the total number of searches done on Google over time. In 2009, restaurants searches range from 82 - 94. Thanks for your comment!

Great comment on my blog Mindi, and I absolutely agree that an online presence and nutrition information needs to be accomodated with an easy to navigate page for users.

Do you happen to have the article or source of the fact that 60-85% of adults search online before selecting a restaurant? That definitely makes sense in this tech-savvy world, and I'd love to read more on it.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

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" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
