Are You using Restaurant Email Marketing
to Build Steady Stream of Customers?

If you are not doing so then you are leaving money on the table. 

There are many benefits of using restaurant email marketing and the main goal is to build your own mailing list (or customer database). This will reduce the needs to rely on expensive advertisement such as Facebook ads or Google ads to reach out to your customers.  

Some of you may think that using Facebook or Instagram is good enough for restaurant marketing but since they are free, they are not reliable. They will be gone one day so are your customers.

Therefore, it is wise to invest early in email marketing as it is still the most reliable, effective and engaging channel to communicate with your customers.

You can install a subscription form provided by the email marketing system at your website so that you can capture any potential customers' contact when they visit your website.  To entice them to sign up, you must offer some free goodies that they cannot resist.
