Wondering how Gift Vouchers could be of use to your restaurant? Did you know that restaurant gift cards are the third most popular type of online gift cards among consumers buying online?
More and more restaurants are turning to selling gift vouchers through online platforms to grow their revenue.
A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR RESTAURANT OWNERS.
As a restaurant owner, the standard marketing options open to you are mostly print-based: local newspapers, specialised press, restaurant guides etc. Often it is hard to gauge the real return of your marketing investment.
Alternatively, you can work with Groupon (or other local Groupon clones) and offer significant discounts to bring in more clients, which will give you more exposure but at a high cost.
A new solution is to offer Gift Cards to generate more sales, profit and When people love your restaurant, they will talk about it and share their enthusiasm. This enthusiasm is the best type of publicity. This is where Facebook, Yelp, Foursquare etc. come in. However, it is still hard to translate online coverage into new customers actually engaging with your business.
Now imagine if a customer who has enjoyed your restaurant decided to send EUR 20 to a best friend to try out your restaurant for her birthday. The friend will visit your restaurant, have a good time and likely spend more than the EUR 20 value of the gift card.
Many people find Gift Vouchers a perfect alternative to buying a gift. By offering service, your clients will be happy and have less stress the next time they need a gift voucher for a Birthday, Mothers’ day, Christmas, Thanksgiving or even a wedding. At the same time, you benefit by having increased your sales.
