Did you know that people utilize local searches more often than a general worldwide search? That’s because most commerce is made locally rather than mail order or downloads. When people search the Internet locally, they are looking for numerous products and services that they need right now:
* Restaurant menus
* Directions to establishments
* Printable coupons
* Customer reviews
Not long ago, restaurants had to rely solely on print ads in newspapers, direct mail advertising, yellow page listings or TV commercials. All of these mediums are very expensive, but the Internet has changed the way a local business can get the word out completely. Using local search directories like Bing and social networks like Twitter, you can reach and advertise to many
of your customers for pennies.
Outsourcing is the perfect solution for local business. An overseas rep can take care of all these tasks for your restaurant. They can identify Facebook and Twitter followers that are just in a localized area and target them with specials and discounts. A Facebook fan page is a great tool to advertise a local business and access the menus, reviews and directions. Printable coupons can save a ton of money over traditional coupons that have to be delivered door to door.
Running a restaurant is very time consuming. For as little as $5.00 an hour you can have an outsourced virtual assistant keep your restaurant fresh in the minds of consumers. You can choose as much time as you need for your rep to work with you and then upgrade anytime as your business grows. The old way of doing business is over. This weakened economy has hit restaurants especially hard. Increase profits and growth with the new era of online advertising.
