Biography
Social Media Connected, a company I started because of my love of the restaurant industry. I saw the need for that industry to change the way it communicates with it’s customers and runs it’s day to day operations. No longer can you just have a great product and expect to prosper. You need to use all the tools available to you and have a strategy for implementation. You need to be CONNECTED with the business and the community you do business in.

Guest Loyalty Is Hard Work

You have a great restaurant and the guest seem quite happy when they leave. You've taught your staff the proper way to greet, prepare and serve. Why is it that you don't see these same guest for months on end? With so many great competitors out there, why should they come back to you the next time they go out for a meal?

Start looking at your guest in a different way. They are not just the money in your cash drawer, although that is the end result that we all seek to survive. Instead make… Continue
