Restaurant Owners!!! You need an App!

Untitled-1

Let’s be honest, we’ve all been that situation, a quiet room just before lunch and your stomach decides now is the opportune time to let you know it’s hungry with a low, heavy grumble. You try to play it off, fingers crossed that not everyone in the room heard.

Given it’s 2015, you’ll probably pull out your phone to avoid the awkward grumble and aimlessly search for a way to curb your hunger. Hopefully there’s an app for that — or at least there should be.

A mobile app for a restaurant can help in the hunger games (pun intended). Not only will it provide an outlet for you to connect with customer and grow marketing channels, it also calls for customer retention, the ability to book more reservations, and much more. For restaurants in particular, mobile apps offer a ton of awesome features to boost business in a cost-effective manner.

Mobile Apps and Real Estate, a Match Made in Heaven

Modern real estate is all about the user. No one attends open houses anymore without checking Zillow, Realtor or another real estate database. Real estate agents and properties, much like the restaurant industry, must work to differentiate itself in the market. Signs outside the houses and print ads just won’t cut it anymore; there’s no way to track these efforts besides attendees of open houses, so why gamble? Don’t. Go mobile.

A mobile app for an agent, or their firm, would drastically distinguish them from the rest of the industry. As more and more time is spent on the phone, users want their search to be easy and not in a silly newspaper or tabloid. You, the realtor, need to think outside of the box and get yourself a mobile app. It’s the way of the future as well as the present.

5 Reasons your restaurant needs to create an App!

Restaurant App
  1.  Push notifications – What are push notifications? They’re small messages similar to text messages that are sent to everyone who has your iPhone application downloaded. These can be used to message out deal notifications and keep customers informed on your restaurant. Let them know about Taco Tuesday or thirsty Thursday – the options are endless. 
     
  2. Full menu within 2 touches – How many times has someone called with questions about your food? With an iPhone app – you can include your entire menu or drinks, food, specials, wines, basically anything your restaurant has. 
     
  3.  Word of mouth – When you create an iPhone application – it creates a buzz of it’s own. Your competitor doesn’t have an iPhone application and your customers with iPhones simply love their phones. Use mobile marketing to spark word of mouth. 
     
  4.  Your customers are willing to put your business in their pocket – A lot of your customers have iPhones and they love downloading and using apps. If you have customers who are willing to walk around with your business in your pocket you should DEFINITELY take advantage of this opportunity. In fact, you’d be crazy not to. 
     
  5.  
     
  6.  If you receive 2 orders via your App a month it is paid for! – An iPhone application could be one of the most cost effective marketing tools available. It only take a couple orders a month to pay for you App. We will go out on a limb and say that you will get many more orders than 2 a month. What if you received 10, 20 or 30 a day? That is a pretty good Rate or Return on your investment! 
     

Your App – Give them a reason to keep it

apple The year was 1995. Apple was only a fruit, Android’s were R2D2 and C-3PO, and the only place you saw an app was on a restaurant menu. Fast forward 20 years and I here sit, typing on an Apple while I simultaneously, and aimlessly, scroll through apps on my iPhone bringing the 2015 version of multitasking full circle. A lot can happen in 20 years, and a lot has, but there was one major change that defined the generation: the Internet. With the introduction of this powerful gizmo came the ability for businesses, organizations and individuals alike to grow exponentially. Next came the age of the website with a main focus of separating a business apart from its competitors while engaging with its target audience. And while websites are still great, the story of their dominance is quickly coming to an end as mobile apps begin their rise. But what does this new direction mean?
