Wouldn’t it be great to send out a text message to hundreds of customers on a slow day and instantly fill up your restaurant? With text message marketing, you can. When customers visit your establishment, or see your ads, they can join your text message subscribe list. Once they are on your list, they will be updated instantly when you send out a text message blast.
How do you get people to subscribe you might ask? It’s actually pretty simple. People are motivated by discounts, coupons and FREE things; so offer a free drink or appetizer if they text your keyword. They will then have to show their text message in order to cash in on the promotion. Advertise how to subscribe anywhere you can. You can include subscribe instructions on all your marketing materials. You can also include a QR Code for your customers to easily subscribe just by scanning it.
Once you have at least 100 subscribers, you will see that you can send out a text message on a slow day with a special offer for that day only, and BAM instantly get walk-in customers the same day, as a result of sending your text coupon. Text Message Marketing and Restaurants is the perfect match!
