6 Ways to Attract More Customers Online to Your Restaurants

73% of diners agree that restaurant technology improves their guest experience. And this is why we need to talk about acquiring customers digitally.

1. Get a website:

75% of consumers surveyed often choose a restaurant to dine at based on search results. Imagine what you are losing if you don’t have a web presence.

– “But we have a google business page, and we run a Facebook page too.
Why do you want us to spend money on a website?”

Wait what?

This is a common misconception that having a Google My Business page is enough to pull you up on google pages.

All the top restaurants that result in the top search results need to have websites because when deciding which restaurant should come on the top, Google takes account of website authority. The websites with better authority have better chances of coming to the top.

Not having a website doesn’t stand a chance to be on the top of Google priority list.

Here is how you can get a premium restaurant website for just $39 per month.

2. Get a website that sells:

So you have got a website, great! But is your website good enough to pull sales for you?

Just having a restaurant website is not enough unless it has all the features that your customers are looking for.

Your website needs to showcase your menu in a visually pleasing manner (please stop using PDFs! For god sakes it’s 2021, no one wants to download a pdf file).

Photos of the food you serve and your restaurant are a must have. Also you should allow your customers to book a table online.

Since the Pandemic hit us, the Online food delivery market has increased 10x. So make sure your restaurant has a way of allowing customers to place their order and pay online.

Does your current website have all this? If not, consider building a new site. Reliqus offers premium restaurant websites at just $39/month.

3. Get listed on Directories:

Getting listed to directories is important because directories are a great source of traffic and double up SEO speed. Here is a list to get your restaurant registered.

  1. Yelp
  2. Doordash
  3. Opentable
  4. Tripadvisor
  5. Grubhub
  6. Google My Business

Getting listed in a directory improves trust factor. If your budget allows, you should invest some in SEO of your website. This will allow your website to rank on top of Google Search Results thus driving in more customers.

4. Social Media is your best friend:

  1. Use your Instagram account to post drool-worthy pictures of your dishes. Foodies love sharing and posting about food on Instagram, and this place has a good advantage in terms of engaging with your target audience. Check this restaurant’s Instagram account.
  2. Create business accounts on Facebook and Twitter. 
  3. Use social media managing tools such as Hootsuite, Buffer and Sprout social to keep track of reviews and mentions about your restaurant.
