6 Expert and Budget-Friendly Ways to Market Your Restaurant in the Cayman Islands
The intense competition among restaurants in the Cayman Islands means creative techniques are required in order to be noticed. Here are some of the best marketing strategies for restaurants to help you grab customers’ attention in a cost-effective way.
Develop a Website and a Mobile App
In today’s digital world, the majority of people search for information online. To help them find your restaurant quickly and efficiently, you not only need a website, but also a mobile app so that customers can easily read the content on their smartphones and tablets. All of the essential information, such as menus, contact and reservation information, hours of operation and photos should be included.
Top the Online Search Results
When people search online using the keywords “restaurants in Cayman,” you want your restaurant to appear on the top of the search engine results page. SEO (Search Engine Optimization) will optimise the website or web page to gain online visibility through organic means and PPC (Pay Per Click) is a paid advertisement that appears on top of the search results page. Developing smart SEO and PPC strategies will get you the benefits you are seeking from search results.
Draft a Loyalty Program
Create a program to reward your customers on the basis of how frequently they visit or how much they spend. This will help you retain customers and boost positive (and very effective) “advertising” through word-of-mouth.
Leverage Social Media
Entice your audience by leveraging the power of social media. Create a profile on all of the most popular social media channels, such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, including high-quality images of your restaurant and cuisine, available discounts, special events, etc. With careful and smart management, social media postings can get the information out quickly to a very broad audience.
