    Hello Guys,

    Any online/offline ideas on how to promote a restaurant near university? I have read a good article on BHW about this few years ago but i couldn't find it. You can post any idea or post a link to a good read. Thanks a lot.

    Yeah maybe you could offer an exclusive promotion for the University students. I am sure this will drive a lot of people in.

    Yes mate but i am looking for a more unique method. I have read something like posting job applications on university with restaurants phone or something. Also i remember something like giving each student discount code and let them work as an affiliate of you. For example there is 5 percent discount coupon. And the code is studentname5 . If customer comes with that code you give 5% to the student. It was something like that. I can't remember the exact method.

    Home Page:
    1. Flyers
    2. Create FB page, invite your friends from that particular location or select advertising.
    3. Offer some contest related to your city history or town or country or sports :D.
    Get the winner from Random.org and offer him a breakfast/meal.
    This will gain more popularity on FB page and users will be interacted more too.
    4. If your going with FB advertising, then add 100 members minimum from your City/Town and then launch advertise for a week.
    Give caption "Just Enroll and Answer a simple Question and get a Meal/Breakfast"
    see the magic within a week :)

    5. Newspaper marketing on local Area.
    6. Promocodes is the trend and launch promocode with newspaper articles/ classifieds etc.
    For eg: get 10% off blah blah.
    Or Flat 30% off on all the items from 3pm to 5pm...

    7. Free Birthday Arrangements with 10+ order.
    Customers will just pay for Meal amount and you arrange some cake with few celebrating factors.

    Damn! Ample of them I can suggest.
    But now I'm hungry, give me some meal as a Treat ;)

    Also you might wanna try with 8GB promotional flash drives printed with the restaurant's logo/url.

    make a scene of fake murder in front of your restaurant, take victim to hospital and declare that he has been saved and make someone tell that it was your quick decision to help him saved his life.

    then you do discounts in the name of that victim who was saved by you..... with a big banner of that person and you in front of your restaurant...

    if that person dies, you won't be getting attraction

    + if you do discounts straightaway , even then you won't get any attraction.

    this combination may help if done properly.

    PS : just an idea nothing else, do your whatever due diligence before doing it.

    idk even know whether it will work or not :D

    1. Make up (for example) a deal for students' lunch - 15% off at a given period of the day
    2. Make some flyers and print them, Make sure they have big red text saying DISCOUNT FOR STUDENTS
    3. Leave them in the lobby and in main locations

    Flyers>>>landingpage offer a deal geared towards the students>>>email optin & social share to get coupon/deal
    Use perfect audience or adroll to retarget the users for future social ppc campaigns
    Rinse & Repeat
