With the social media explosion many businesses are looking for ways they can utilize the tools available to market their business. Restaurants are no exception and in todays post I thought I would share with you 4 ways restaurants can use social media to help get customers at their tables.

1. Daily Specials

It used to be that a customer would have to walk by the restaurant or even be siting at a table before they would find out what the daily specials are. Why make them wait until then? With social media avenues such as Facebook and Twitter, you can now let your followers know those specials ahead of time. This is a great way to attractive them to the restaurant. Let that new chef creation give them the incentive to make it a night out! You already have to plan the specials, maybe write up a menu insert and chalk up the daily special board. Take another quick step and put it out there for your social network to see. Post a Facebook status update with the whole list or entice your customers with a single special item in a Tweet. Does your restaurant website have a blog? Go ahead and post it there… tweeting a link to the post.
