Restaurant marketing made simple

Unboxing the Facebook Bluetooth Beacon

Being in the restaurant marketing space, I happen to be an Administrator for a handful of my clients’ Facebook pages. In March of 2015, I began receiving occasional notifications in my news feed asking me to apply for a Facebook Bluetooth® Beacon. As someone who has been curious about the possibilities of beacon technology in the retail space, I immediately jumped on board and filled-out t…

5 Easy Ways to Boost Your Restaurant Online

Restaurant owners always ask us, “How can my business stand out on the web?” We’ve reached a time when small businesses appreciate the value of search engine presence but still aren’t quite sure how to achieve it. I’ve always said online prominence is more of an art form than a science, really, and it’s something that can be mastered by anyone, regardless of their level of computer…

Restaurant Menus Everywhere: Our SinglePlatform Integration

This blog post is long overdue but we wanted to get a year of real-world testing under our belt before any official announcement. First, a glimpse into our founding philosophy: restaurants need to own their content!
The Dilemma

Restaurant Website Traffic Report

Just for fun, we randomly selected ten of our clients for a website traffic study. Using each site’s Google Analytics from Feb 1, 2013 – Feb 1, 2014, we completed a general comparison in search of noteworthy trends and overall user behavior. Our sample sites totaled just under a million page views for the year (991,490 to be exact) and included a healthy mix of restaurants, bars, lounges,…

Consistency in Marketing

As a restaurant with a growing customer base, it’s absolutely crucial to streamline your online & offline presence. Although very common with large chains and restaurants with mega marketing departments, this simple practice is one that seems to get lost in many small to medium-sized businesses. It may not appear to be a huge deal, but consistency is a key psychological component to your…

WP Engine: A Love Story

We launched our company just over a year ago. In that short time, we evolved our business model from strictly mobile software to state-of-the-art desktop websites adaptable to all devices. As DashCrowd continued to grow and our focus became better tuned to the universal needs of restaurants everywhere, we had to adapt our internal operations significantly.
