As a restaurateur we know that the words “free time” don’t really exist in your vocabulary. That doesn’t change the fact that you still need to promote your business in order to fill up all of your tables each day.
Now that you can take every part of your business online with Wix Restaurants, expecting a line out the door and deliveries flying out of your kitchen is more possible than ever.
But let’s get real for a second. You’re selling so much more than your menu. That’s why we’ve broken down exactly what else you need to do in order to make your stunning restaurant website stand out so that customers start rolling in.
To help make your website beautiful, we have a tons of templates for you to choose from. You don’t need to have design background to have a gorgeous website. Simply choose a template and customize everything to your liking – from images and icons to the color theme.
Scenario: it’s a rainy day and you’re craving your favorite dish from the local restaurant in town. You hop onto their website only to find that they don’t do take-out. Your heart is crushed and your dream of curling up on the couch with your food just flew out the window.
Don’t be that guy. Add an online ordering system to your website and allow orders for pickup or delivery! Remember, this is totally commission fee, so you’ve got nothing to lose.
Sure, your food isn’t the only way for your website to stand out, but it’s a pretty important way to grab your visitors’ attention. Consider adding a “Dish of the Day” image post each day on your restaurant’s Facebook page to lure folks in. By the time they head over to your site, they’re appetites will be voracious.
What better way to satisfy your future customers than to allow them to book a table right online? Forget standing by the phone wasting time booking tables! A restaurant reservation system OpenTable Reservations lets your customers book with ease, and it’s 100% free to add to your site.
It’s no secret that social media is one of the best spaces to promote your business. While it’s important to maintain a lively presence to show that you’re accessible, it’s also a good place to show off what you got. Just like the “Dish of the Day” we mentioned above, you can also share your menu with all of your followers online. Simply add a “Menu” tab to your business’s Facebook page and all of your fans will be able to browse your dishes. The best part? If you make any updates to your menu, the changes will sync directly on your menu on Facebook. It doesn’t get any easier!
