Limited-Time Offers: Send time-sensitive discounts to drive immediate traffic, speed up slowdowns, and fill chairs.

Mobile Coupons: Send a campaign with a restaurant text coupon. You can also include an image of your food or a scannable barcode.

Weekly Specials: Tell your customers about weekly specials.

Alert Messages: You can text someone to confirm an upcoming reservation, organise a pickup order, or let them know that their food is ready.

How Can Your Restaurant Use the Redtie Platform?

SMS marketing for restaurants is simple. Think about it for a second. Potential customers are bound to be thinking about food at certain times of the day. Chances are that they will do so, phone in hand. Why not entice them to opt in with a special deal, discount or offer?

Here are a few ideas for your restaurant SMS marketing campaign:

  • Brand awareness and promotion. Promote your brand with short and sweet SMS offers. Use SMS short codes for redeemable prizes. Never assume that your customers know who you are! Add your brand name and website at the end of every text.
  • A database of customers. Print keywords and short codes on table-wraps or flyers to encourage opt-ins. Send relevant and timely texts to transform casual diners into loyal ones.
  • Scheduled texts for booking reminders and cancellations. You can significantly decrease the number of ‘no-shows’ by sending automated text messages with appointment and booking reminders.
  • Promote your menu and new dishes. What better way to let people know about your tasty new dishes than by sending them a text with an irresistible deal? Send regular updates to your customers and become the talk of the town.

TripAdvisor reviews

Why restaurants use text messaging to get more TripAdvisor reviews?

Be it a restaurant or any other business, customer review is of vital importance in the competitive environment. It is true that 88% of the customers trust online reviews as much as a personal recommendation.

Hence it is important for every hotelier to look for ways in which they can improve their TripAdvisor reviews. With a 98% open rate, text message is one of the most effective forms of digital communication. Here’s how you can take advantage of this powerful – and simple to manage – marketing channel.

In fact, 93% of customers will read reviews before purchasing a product, while TripAdvisor users will read an average of 9 reviews before making a decision.

If you already have a database with your customers’ mobile phone information, requesting TripAdvisor reviews via SMS to be very effective. Here’s an example message you can take inspiration from:

Thank you for joining us for dinner at Burger King. If you had a great time, we’d love you to let others know by leaving a review! https://redtie.me/review

The key here is to make both the message and the overall review process as easy as possible. Reducing the number of steps needed to provide feedback can increase the amount of reviews you get from text requests.

Here are some tips to help you get more TripAdvisor reviews through SMS marketing:
  1. If you don’t ask you don’t get – Ask them directly
    The best way to get your customers to post reviews on TripAdvisor is to ask them. When they check out from your Restaurant, request them to post a review. You can then use SMS marketing to send a follow-up message.

Most customers would click on the link that should redirect them to the TripAdvisor page, where they can share their reviews. If they have enjoyed their stay at your hotel, they would definitely be willing to review.

  1. Send a link over a text message that makes it easy for the customers (QR Codes)
    Some businesses use QR codes, scanning which the guests will be redirected to the page or box where they are required to post their reviews. Again, it is a quick and short process that will encourage the guests to review you.
  2. Thank them for the review
    Once the review is posted, send a thanks message through text message. This is a courtesy message that completes the process of getting the review.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lw0vV_fz3Wo

Reviews are your ticket to increasing revenue, bringing in new customers, and making a great name for yourself in your local area.

Using SMS makes leaving a review quick and easy for your customers.
