    Hi all,

    I want to work with some restaurants in my hometown to promote their business on Facebook.

    What I am thinking of is the following:

    • Update the Facebook page or create it with a nice frame which looks like the website if available.
    • Create menu's in Facebook where the startes and other menu's of the restaurant will be displayed with prices (and easy to be updated by owner of restaurant)
    • Liking the page will give you a one time x% discount in the restaurant excluding drinks or will entitle you to get the special facebook menu for just 20 euro's for example.
    • Checking into the restaurant when visiting will get you a free drink (glass of beer/soda or coffee)
    • Have a CPM campaign on Facebook telling people that a like will get you the discount


    I would love to hear your comments on this, do you think this can succeed and did you implement this strategy already to increase reservations/customers. I think restaurants see a decline in visitors in january/february... that is what I am aiming for to increase their visits.

    Also, what would you charge a restaurant.

    Another question I have is... which services/products would you use to create the Facebook page? No experience in this field tbh but do think it is a great idea.

    Well, why don't you use the WP Food Service Predator theme. It's fine for restaurants and has a reservation plugin as well.

    Once that is set up, you can always frame the facebook fanpage around the website.

    Link below:

    HI,

    I will only be targeting restaurants with existing websites. Not planning on making or implementing this system onto their websites. They will need to take care of their reservations through telephone with customers calling.

    I do not want to make it more difficult for them.

    But thanks for your help. It is appreciated!

    I was thinking of doing something similar, while educating them on the different ways to use it, and offering management of campaigns and the page itself. I think it's a great idea, I just have yet to implement it.

    Any more people can comment on the idea and their experiences with it? Maybe some good services of people who can design and make the Facebook pages.

    Thanks
