Effective Restaurant Marketing and Promotion

Three Ways To Increase a Restaurant's Revenue

It's Easier to Keep a Customer than Get a New Customer

It is a commonly held belief that a business will spend five times more to get a new customer than it needs to spend to get comparable revenue from an existing customer. Point of Success point of sale software gives a restaurant the information it needs to continually communicate with existing customers, encouraging them to order more and order more frequently Point of Sale Premium Feature.

Let me make this clear: people who have ordered from you before are five times more likely to order again than a non-customer.

Lifetime Value

The value of a new customer is important, but the lifetime value of an existing customer is even more important. Many restaurants expend a great deal of time and money to get new customers to the exclusion of improving relationships with customers they already have.

If a restaurant spends $500 to get 30 new customers who each place a $15 order, the total new revenue will almost meet the cost of the advertising. The problem is that if 25% of these new customers order again, these new customers are profitable only if each retained new customer orders three or more times. Balancing new customer marketing activities with offers directed to existing customers is vital to a restaurant's success. Restaurants using Point of Success point of sale software software know their customers and their buying habits, giving them the power to emphasize existing customers in their business-building activities.

Consistent, Reliable Source of Orders

Every restaurant manager recognizes their customers who order consistently. They know that the majority of their orders every day are placed by existing customers. Existing customers are the most consistent, reliable source of regular business.

Make Good Customers Great Customers

Point of Success point of sale software pinpoints good customers so you can communicate with them more frequently and more effectively! Identify customers by their longevity, their order frequency, their lifetime value and more. A good customer is worth the extra care it takes to keep them coming back again and again Point of Sale Premium Feature.

About Order Discount Point of Sale Software
Entering discounts and tracking promotions is easier with Point of Success point of sale software' coupon and discount tracking features. Each coupon or discount is created with valid days, dates and times, how to calculate the discount, and the items to which the discount applies.

Add-On Order Promotions

Point of Success point of sale software makes it easy for a restaurant to encourage add-on of extra items with every order. When offering incentives to servers or order taking staff, sales achievements can be tracked for add-on items.
Customer Retention and Satisfaction

Restaurant managers are sometimes unaware that customer relationships are critical to a successful restaurant. The loss of a dissatisfied customer is a huge cost.

  • On average, 50% of dissatisfied customers will complain to a front-line employee
  • Only 1% to 5% of dissatisfied customers will escalate their complaint to a manager
  • 91% of dissatisfied customers will not buy again from a company that displeased them
  • Complaining customers whose complaints are satisfied are significantly more loyal than customers who have never been dissatisfied

When a customer disappears the most controllable cause is dissatisfaction. Contacting an inactive customer repeatedly and with increasingly attractive offers to become active again is the most effective marketing expenditure a restaurant can make.

When Active Customers Become Inactive

Point of Success point of sale software offers reports detailing which previously active customers have not ordered in a specific period of time Point of Sale Premium Feature. This information permits contacting of customers with coupons and other enticements to order again. When active customers stay inactive even though they have been offered generous incentives, it's time for a manager to contact the customer personally.

Early Warning of Food Quality or Staff Problems

Inactive customer follow-up gives a manager first-hand experience with customer complaints. An informed manager can easily judge the quality of their restaurant's food and service, then make changes to keep customers happy. Generous problem-solving attention from a manager is often all that's needed to transform a dissatisfied customer into a raving fan.

Managers Stay Involved

Keeping managers informed and involved is the best way to improve a restaurant's success. Busy managers spending time operating the restaurant are far less effective than managers who are in touch with their customers!
