Their insights will be featured in a 9-week Restaurant Marketing Tip Series hosted on http://www.advanceme.com/blog/.
AdvanceMe polled restaurant owners, seeking their main concerns regarding customer acquisition and retention. The Restaurant Marketing Tip Series is based upon three top issues:
- How do I get more customers?
- How can I make my customers happy?
- How can I get them to return?
Poll results showed that 77 percent of respondents believed “Getting Customers” was their main marketing challenge. Another 14 percent selected “Getting Customers to Come Back,” followed by 9 percent that felt “Making Customers Happy” was their biggest difficulty. The Restaurant Marketing Tip Series will provide advice and ideas that will enable restaurateurs to address these issues, while helping them understand how they may be intertwined and addressed simultaneously, saving time and resources.
