Mobile Loyalty Program

As a restaurant owner, what if you could build customer loyalty the moment your customers call to place an order, are seated, or walk through the door?

Imagine, placing a table tent with a QR code with copy that says: Scan our QR code for Daily Specials, either at the register or once they are seated.

Your mini website will appear on their phone with a daily special or coupon. You can create daily promo’s such as: “Present this coupon to your server for a FREE appetizer or take 25% OFF todays meal.”  Who wouldn’t want to join your restaurant mobile loyalty program!

Take it to the next level with a Text Message Marketing campaigns.

Text message marketing

Ask customers to send a text to (your company name) 90090, once they do, they’ll receive a reply to Opt-In for specials and promo’s via text. (through the use of Long Code technology)

Now you can continue to build upon the customer relationship with monthly rewards and incentives. They can always op-out if they get tired of saving money or getting too much free stuff at your establishment. 😂

Training your employees on the mobile restaurant loyalty program.

Talking about your rewards program with every customer is just a matter getting into a routine. Each server should understand the benefits and how the program works. Having a table tent with a QR Code on the center of each table will make the loyalty program a constant reminder and great conversation starter.

A simple and quick explanation can help build the customer/employee relationship. If employees are confident and believe in the program, the success rate of downloading your mobile rewards will be much higher.

Save to home screen

Employees can demonstrate on their phone just how easy it is to add your App to their home screen with the “Save to My Home Screen” button. Customers can call or email your business at the push of a button, making for a much more personal experience.

Final Thoughts

Standing out from your competition and building customer loyalty, along with creating a positive customer experience is the foundation of any good restaurant.

Having a solid mobile loyalty program in place is imperative today. Being able to control every aspect with our mobile marketing platform is unheard of. Never having to wait for your webmaster to make updates or change your weekly specials on your mobile website is worth its weight in gold!

If Tuesdays each week are slow and you want to run a quick special from 4 to 7, you can jump into the back office, create a quick text message and push it out to all your loyal customers.

    Everywhere I go in this Covid environment, and especially restaurants, I see QR codes. What a sweet concept for any business to use. I generally subscribe to businesses with their long & short codes to receive their offerings!
