Social Media Boosts Word Of Mouth

Social media is about engaging with your customers, having conversations, and "bigger ears than mouth"!

Social Media is changing the way consumers research and plan their restaurant selection. The trust associated with peer reviews combined with the scope and speed at which opinions and recommendations are distributed across the internet mean that Social Media is probably THE most important emerging marketing channel for restaurants today.

Facebook now provides a valuable platform for restaurants to communicate and engage with customers. The ability to fully customise business Facebook Pages with branding and booking engines delivers an attractive channel that can lead to direct conversions (turning Facebook "fans" into diners in your restaurant).

Online review sites such as TripAdvisor must be closely managed and monitored. Negative reviews can cause considerable damage and need an immediate response. Other Social Media networks such as Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Pinterest and FourSquare are also important elements of the internet marketing mix and should all be utilised by an online savvy restaurant.
