Share high-quality photos to promote special holiday meals
According to QSR magazine’s 2019 report, 45% of US diners have visited a restaurant for the very first time because of the social media post made by the restaurant business.
Make the most out of social media platforms by sharing standard-quality photos of your meals. Promote special meals as every restaurant seems to offer special dishes on holidays. Since Christmas is around the corner, you can share photos of the meal that your customers love to order online or want to visit your restaurant for the same.
Take advantage of IGTV and Reel on Instagram
Ask your customers to share their reviews about your restaurant and food in a video version (if they are comfortable) and share it on reels. You can also record videos of your kitchen and dining areas and share them on IGTVs to attract more customers to your restaurant through Instagram.
Please don’t hesitate to take the help of someone who knows how to use these platforms. You can also check out your digital marketing service provider if you have one.
Engage with food-influencers on different social media platforms
Try collaborating with food bloggers and influencers of your area on Instagram and Facebook. Send your special meals/dishes to them in PRs and ask them if they can share about it with their audience/followers by tagging your restaurant page in their posts or stories. In this way, you can bring a lot of traffic to your restaurant pages on multiple channels. And if you have high-quality photos on your page then it is possible that many page visitors will come to visit your restaurant or will order online.
