Trying to get hungry customers to your restaurant? Consider SMS text marketing. Text offers such as these can bring in new or repeat business with every message.
If done right, it can be extremely effective. Here is a quick rundown of the top strategies for restaurants to attract more business.
Provide Opt-in Incentives
To increase the number of subscribers for your campaign, consider providing opt-in incentives, such as a discount or free giveaway. Users are more likely to sign up for your text messages if there is an instant reward for doing so.
Use Time-Sensitive Offers
If you want to improve the response from your campaign, why not reach out to your subscribers when they are most likely to be hungry? Sending a last-minute discount offer around lunch or dinner time will surely appeal to subscribers. However, you should never send text messages after 9 pm!
Make it an SMS Sweepstakes
Make it more exciting for your subscribers with a text-to-win campaign or SMS sweepstakes. Offer a prize for entry to your program and you’ll see an increase in the number of subscribers who participate.
Ask Customers about Their Preferences
As you use text message marketing to promote your restaurant, ask your customers about their preferences and then give them what they want. Whether it’s discount offers or more frequent texts or reminders about upcoming promotions, let your customers drive your campaign instead of simply guessing.
