How to Attract More Clients to Your Restaurant?


When you run a restaurant it can be tough to make your client base grow exponentially, especially if there are many competitors in your area and it is hard to convince the visitors that your place is the best one.

Although this is a hard task, there are still some ways to attract new visitors from the web. However, you need to create an online platform at first where there will be placed an offer of your restaurant or any other valuable information. You can start a Facebook, Instagram, Twitter account, make a website or even create a mobile application. You can create a mobile app even if you do not know programming at all using, its interface is fully intuitive and all the solutions implemented were designed to make the best restaurant app.

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram Account

All you need to do on your social network accounts is to post viral content and inform your potential visitors about special offers, events and discounts that take place in your restaurant.

In order to increase number of followers, it is better to motivate your potential guests to follow, share and press likes under your posts. This can be easily done if you offer some bonuses for prescribed actions. However, the best option would be to post engaging content. For example, a well-designed photo report about the recent event that happened in your restaurant.

It is not necessary to use commercial ads to promote restaurant - it is usually enough to post information about the events and motivate people to share information about that.

Mobile App

Creating a mobile app would shorten the distance between you and your potential gust dramatically. As once you get your app installed on the guest’s mobile device you can freely send him notifications on any purpose you seem to be remarkable for the visitor. However, make sure you are using this tool cautiously, no one will appreciate spamming - so make sure the notifications you send are valuable enough so that users will be grateful for that.

Actually, creating a mobile app is easy as creating a Facebook page if you use a proper mobile app constructor. All you need to do is to sign up and enter the graphical drag-and-drop editor provided by the service. Then you need to place the elements of the app on the specified places, deal with design and colors.

Note that usually such services provided many templates you can use and it is enough for you to use one of the offered templates (just modify it a bit to make your app look unique).

Afterwards it would be a good idea to publish your menu in the app contents as well as the calendar with the detailed schedule of events. You need to consider the fact that today users tend to search an information about the place they are going to go to in the Internet. So, the more information you publish the more there is a chance that they choose your restaurant.
