It is super easy to get up and running.
A simple feedback form on each table allowing people to leave their name, mobile and email is another popular option.
Using Bulk SMS for Restaurants
Application to Person (A2P) marketing has exploded in popularity in the last 5 years as business owners get turned on to the fact that their messages are delivered directly to the consumers mobile. With a read rate of 98%, businesses are guaranteed their information is read and subsequent response rates are as high as 50% from A2P marketing.
The most popular form of A2P marketing is Bulk SMS.
Some examples of using Bulk SMS for your marketing;
- Automatically send a birthday text message to your customers with an offer of free glass of wine or a bottle of beer. This feature in particular is very popular with restaurants as it is easy to setup and sends out offers each day automatically. The business owners does not need to do anything after initial setup.
- Keep your customers up to date with your latest specials and offers. Deliver to thousands within seconds.
- If you want a message to go out when you are not in the office, you can schedule your message for anytime in the future. Scheduling can be done on a once off or a recurring basis if for example you wished the same message to go out every 2 months.
- Use mobile vouchers to get your customers attention. Sendmode have an excellent end-to-end mobile voucher system which can show you exactly how much revenue you made from each promotion.
