Piper Restaurant commented on Chris Leo's blog post 3 Reasons Restaurants Should Outsource Their Social Media Management
"I can't imagine sending our website out. We change it almost everyday to correspond with the new dinner and wine specials, pictures, banquet calendar, staff schedule and all that. The specials are always added to the Facebook Page as well.…"

"FohBoh is telling insistent, and sometimes irate, customers on the phone that window and patio tables are on a first-come first-serve basis, and we cannot promise them a particular table, all the while keeping a smile in your voice."

Freedom and equality for all
I have been working in the office at Piper Restaurant for over 23 years. Piper was originally The Sandpiper, a fine-dining restaurant. I work on the web site, menus, ads, the social networking and many other duties. Being a former dance instructer, dancing is what I love most, though now mostly in my living room.

Hi Melodie,
Thank you for the heads up.

We are currently updating the website and you might have noticed that when you log in, our system asks you to make a payment as we have terminated the Free trial period.

However, as soon as we finish the update, we will provide some more Free period for existing members as thank you gift.
Will keep you updated.

In the mean time, if your new menu becomes available, you can send it directly to me and I will make sure it gets updated.

Hello Melodie,

I was wondering if you wouldn't mind taking a little time to complete a survey for my group project? I am a student at California State University, Fullerton and my group & I are conducting a survey to understand how restaurant owners/managers engage in online or electronic marketing. The following survey should take about 5 minutes to complete and your feedback will provide us with invaluable information for the research report we are preparing for Dr. Susan Cadwallader’s Strategic Marketing course..

Your response is greatly appreciated and individual responses will be held in the strictest confidence.

Thanks in Advance!

Please click on the link below to access the survey....

Melodie, thanks for joining the Random Acts of Kindness Group! If you would help spread the word about our little gang to your contacts, it would be appreciated!

Cheers (and stay out of trouble!), Terri

wow sounds exciting melodie. I'm sure that takes a lot of time and work, so it's prob really difficult for you to manage social networking sites in your down time. If down time exists for you.

Really quick Melodie, if you think its not to invasive.
How much do you spend on marketing/advertising each month?
t.v,coupons,newspapers,magazines,or internet?

thanks for connecting with me,

wow i'm very sorry to hear about the domino effect. I checked out your face book page and i love the pelicans.
I'm not quite sure what your target market is but a couple more personable pics on your fan page would help people 18-25 know you on a personal level.
Also status updates outside the scope of your restaurant could help give your fan page a personable feel.
I really like the gluten free menu.
I actually spend a lot of my day around children who are on gluten free diets.
A lot of children with disabilities are on gluten free diets and there are many search engines and social networks on the web where parents hang out and chat about different activities.
You can direct those parents to your menu and see what they think. It could be a very niche market.
Many children with autism are on gluten free diets so that could be a keyword when searching for different ways to find your target market.

Those are just some words to chew on.

thanks for commenting back

I saw your comment on a discussion about social media and the results of customer traffic.

Have you seen an increase in customer traffic since than?

The Piper is excited to be able to sell beer and wine on Sundays now. Restaurants in Ottawa County could sell liquor, but could not offer wine with dinner, a champagne toast at a reception, or a bottle of beer. Thanks to the voters last November, now we can.
