Posted by Dan Amato on Mar 27, 2019 8:36:00 AM

Posted by Jacob Downing on Mar 6, 2019 9:49:49 AM

In today’s hyper-competitive restaurant industry, restaurateurs and marketers are always searching for an effective way to gain a competitive advantage without breaking the bank. That means finding a way to fully maximize the ROI of their marketing campaigns.

According to a study from Mailchimp, marketing email recipients are 75% more likely to click on emails from segmented campaigns than non-segmented campaigns. And an article from CMO.com stated that targeted promotions are, on average, almost twice as effective as non-targeted ones. Mailchimp also noted that email open rates are 14.31% higher in segmented campaigns.

Study after study has revealed that marketing is much more effective when different messages are targeted to specific customer segments, rather than sending a single message to an entire customer base.

Engaging Restaurant Customers Who Are at Risk of Churning

Posted by Jacob Downing on Feb 20, 2019 7:46:00 AM

It’s no secret that your loyal customers are the lifeblood of your business. So when a customer changes their habit of visiting your establishment, do you have a way of knowing?  Can you entice them to come back?

There is an enormous amount of competition in the restaurant industry, and it doesn't take much to shift a customer’s routine. That change in routine can result in a customer who is at-risk of churning shifting into a fully-churned customer. When it comes down to brass tacks, if your customer isn't dining at your establishment, they are dining somewhere else.

Fortunately, there are solutions to help restaurateurs know when a customer is at-risk for churning. With these solutions, you can reconnect with your customer before their loyalty shifts to your competition. Perhaps the best way to understand customer behavior is by utilizing a WiFi marketing and analytics platform.

The Elements of a Marketable Customer Profile

Posted by Jacob Downing on Feb 13, 2019 8:04:00 AM

For restaurants not using data to drive their operational, marketing and promotional campaigns, they essentially are gambling on their own opinion.

A manager may think he or she knows what their customers prefer and want from their dining experiences, but customers are vastly different. Basing a decision on a hunch can be devastating to your marketing results and your restaurant's bottom line.

A powerful solution for this issue is to create customer segments to which you can optimize your marketing efforts. Customer segments should be based upon typical demographic and behavior data from your actual customers. This leads to smarter business decisions and more targeted marketing campaigns.
