Why You Should Advertise Your Restaurant Online

| Internet Marketing, Web Design | No Comments

Starting your own restaurant can be really exciting; you’ve finally got an outlet for your talent, and you get to put your own touches into the decorations, menu and location. There are so many things to consider, but one thing that is easy to forget is your presence online. It’s really important to have a website as a company, because you’ll be relying on third party listings otherwise, which might not be completely accurate. There are many reasons to have your own website, so I thought it might be helpful if I listed some of these in this blog post. Here are my top picks…

Show off your Menu

There’s one main thing that people want to know about when they look on your website: your menu. This helps people to decide whether a restaurant is suitable to their tastes and budget, especially if they are heading to your establishment as a large group. You should make an effort to have the most up-to-date menu online as possible as it can confuse people when they arrive and see something different.

Be Seasonal

Speaking of menus, you can also use your website to display your seasonal offerings. Perhaps you’ll have a set summer menu that uses the best British ingredients, or it might be that you’re going to create a special menu just for the Christmas period. Make sure these are easy to view on the web; PDF documents are commonly used so your competitors can’t easily copy and paste your menu.

Cater for Parties

Cash in on the private event market by dedicating a portion of your website to describing what you can do to help. You could give the prices and breakdown of a number of packages for weddings, christenings, birthdays and anniversaries. If you have a private function room then make sure you include a couple of images as well as the dimensions of the room.

Be Social

If you want to engage with your customers and potential clients, why not make it easy for them to get in contact with you? Include various means of contact information as well as showing your latest posts from Facebook or Twitter. When it comes to social media, put your profile information on your website so people can easily follow or like you.

Hold Special Offers

If you want to get more people on your website, you could have a page of special offers or voucher codes for your customers. Many other restaurants do this successfully, as long as they keep their website up-to-date. Make it clear when a voucher can be used, and what the conditions are. If you have a great offer, you may find that it gets shared around via social media sites too.

On Tuesday official of school district of Glendale declared that in the present academic year, they are going to start and expand the new program of supervising the activity of the students especially on various social media sites. According to reliable source, Glendale public educators would supervise the program.

More than 13,000 students of high and middle schools in the Glendale Unified School District are actively connected with sites that include You Tube, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. It is reported that students publicly post their views and opinions on different matters. Sources informed that district officials believed that those students would be affected by the program.

Glendale SchoolsIn the words of Richard Sheehan, the Superintendent, the priority of the program is to provide proper safety to the students. He further informed that from several recent incidents revealed that social media posts often caused different problem to the problems. He informed that posts on social media related to potential harm to students whether for others, for themselves, or inappropriate sexting, or to bullying would be verified by the observer.

The superintendent explained that the school district has decided to utilize the service known as Geo Listing that is proved to be effective to protect against several problems related to cyber world that even include cyber bullying.

As being informed by the reliable source, earlier in this month the school board approved to take the service from the Hermosa Beach Company and has signed an agreement with them and agreed to pay $40,000 for the service.

It is worth to mention over here that Geo Listening is listed as a program on social media monitoring that would enable the schools to build up an attachment with the students.

It is reported that the company reveals in their own website that the students are eagerly seeking the help of the school authority. The company claims that they realized the problem of the students through their public postings on different social networking sites that discloses the clear and loud demand of the students in despair.

However, it is noted that numerous parents criticized the program harshly. They are of the opinion that it interferes on the lives of the students. On the other hand, some parents opined that the monitoring program would help to lessen the publicly made posts of the students.

Christina Ng-Watson, a parent, expressed that the matter is not so private like Big Brother. The posts are made public and anyone registered in the site are allowed to view the post that can create some serious issues.

It is informed by several reliable sources that the proposed program was already tested by various schools across Glendale in the academic year 2012-2013. Sheehan said that they were really grateful to Geo Listening that published the daily report that would encourage them to introduce the program.

Sheehan hoped that in order to protect the students they would be able to interfere in some specific incidents so that they can prevent harm to students.
