Restaurant Marketing Tip #5
Food Blogger Outreach
It’s tough as it is running a restaurant, but it’s more rough when you’re a new restaurant with not a lot of reviews, if any at all. You might be finding it difficult to generate reviews, getting enough press.
That is where food bloggers come in.
Invite food bloggers to your restaurant to give you a try. Offer a free meal or appetizer or maybe a discount to get them in the door. Politely ask them to leave a review and share their experience online.
Keep in mind you can not directly ask for a positive review. It is okay however to ask for an objective restaurant review. This tactic may not always work but the more you ask, the greater your chances.
Some food bloggers have large followings on social media so getting their attention can mean have a positive influence on your restaurant.
