That Works for Restaurants
Leverage online ads and social media to generate new sales, while driving guest database growth.
Fishbowl Guest Acquisition helps restaurants generate new sales and drive guest database growth, leveraging online advertising and social media promotion. Campaigns are 100% measurable, and make use of Fishbowl’s online marketing expertise: we take care of ad creative, database management and performance reporting. When used alongside Fishbowl’s existing email and database solutions, the result is a new kind of self-sustaining, restaurant marketing engine.
The Big Picture: Successful Acquisition Leads Engagement and Conversion
Your ultimate marketing goal is to engage guests and convert them into loyal, steady customers. But to keep your group of loyal customers thriving and growing, you must have a successful, reliable base of new guest acquisition. Each acquired customer brings short-term and long-term value, including opportunities to:
- Solicit customer feedback to improve services
- Drive in-store traffic and increase sales
- Share new menu items and store events
- Collect data to influence business decisions
Build relationships, loyalty and trust: Broad Reach, Quick Impact
Fishbowl Guest Acquisition presents advertising capabilities that other mediums just can’t offer. Reach only your most valuable prospects with sophisticated profile and content targeting. Enhance your campaigns on the fly, using real-time performance data. Most importantly, pay for opt-ins, instead of impressions.
- Immediately establish an online presence for your brand, on premium sites like Facebook, The New York Times, Movietickets.com and Orbitz.
- Generate millions of impressions, but only pay for opt-in members.
- Use sophisticated targeting to focus on the most valuable prospects.
