Narrow your marketing efforts
Having separate lists for lunch and dinner customers is a great way to target your promotions to the right crowd. Our system allows you to focus your efforts more effectively to see better returns.
A popular way to use text messaging promotions for restaurants is to offer instant discounts to customers when they sign up. For instance, you can place flyers, postcards or posters around the restaurant that say “Join our Text VIP List – Text FOOD to 74455 and get a 1/2 Price Appetizer”. This will surely build your text based marketing list quickly and you can limit the promotions to certain inexpensive foods. Other ideas may be half price beer or free dessert. You have to figure out what works best for your restaurant and your customers, but we can also help guide you in figuring that out and give you ideas that have worked for similar establishments. Plus our system has advanced features that will protect you from patrons attempting to abuse the promotions by joining multiple times.
“The Birthday Club”
Show your customers you love them by sending them a Happy Birthday text message with a bar special just for them on their birthday – Automatically! When customers sign up for the birthday club, they simply reply with their date of birth, our system stores that information, and then on their birthday the system sends them your chosen birthday message and special. Simply, effective and your customers feel special on their special day!
