We all know that in an economy like we have today, we have to come up with ways to get our business name out there and bring in more sales. One way to do this is to have an online presence. If you don’t have a website for your business, you may be losing business to your competitors. In this high tech age, customers can research 24/7 on their laptops, desktops and iPhones. Many of us make restaurant choices by looking at their menus online. Pricing, food selections, location….all very important when we are looking for a place to dine or to order take-out.
It’s approaching lunchtime in the office. We hear it all the time….anyone want something from “Local Eatery”? Sitting at our desks we type in the name of the restaurant on our computer, take a look at the menu and let the co-worker know what to pick up for us. We give them the money up front because we found out ahead of time how much it will cost by looking at the online menu. Many offices, unless the restaurant is well known and already frequented, will not order for the group if they don’t know what the restaurant has to offer. It’s an easy and convenient way to order for a large group.
While I am not totally putting down websites that will scan your menu and post it on their site, I do not recommend it as the only way to post your restaurant’s information. Having your own website, your own domain name and separating yourself from the rest, has an advantage over your competitors, especially those who don’t have a website of their own. It is an opportunity to show potential customers who you are, what you look like and what you have cooking!
A website is like having an online brochure. Display your restaurants interior and exterior, food items, maybe show off your staff, offer coupons and specials. Entice diners to come to you! Give reason to choose you!
