Currently, almost no business can be promoted without using the popular social network Instagram. Users see a small description of the company's activities, and in combination with bright and beautiful photos or videos, this method of popularization gives a wonderful effect. Considering the number of competitors, promoting cafes on Instagram is not such an easy task as it may seem at first glance. Therefore, it is necessary to deal with all the points that require attention in turn.
Understanding this principle, it is very easy to be creative and surprise the audience. Subconsciously, everyone involved in promotion understands that by playing on the instinct of the viewer, you can offer various, sometimes absurd, methods of attracting the audience, and they will be received loyally, because in the end, a person receives not only satisfaction of hunger, but also the aesthetic component of this process. All this enhances the effect and gives more importance to a simple dinner, breakfast or lunch.
Now all restaurants and cafes are trying to develop their social networks accounts because there you can get even more potential customers. The most significant platform for catering places is Instagram. Most business owners start to maintain an account and buy Instagram followers even before the cafe opens.
Today we are going to talk about how you can promote your place with SMM.
It is worth noting that there are many establishments with an original concept, but unknown to a wide range of people. Reason: no one knows about this establishment because there is no proper marketing on the net as well, in particular on social networks. What to do in this case and where to start if you don't want to just buy real Instagram followers and wait for the result?
Preparing an account for the restaurant's Instagram promotion to be successful consists of the following steps:
Coming up with a name. The nickname and profile name must be unique and memorable. In both cases, you need to specify the name of the institution, and in the name it is better to specify the city in which it is located.
Decoration. You need to pay attention to creating a recognizable and bright logo, and add the type of activity, work schedule and address to the bio.
Immediately generate relevant stories. You can add unique and important information to them that both new and old customers will need — reviews, promotions, menus, interiors, and so on.
The content plan is an important component of promotion. It includes fully written ideas for publications. It will be described in more detail later.
Developing the style of posts. All publications should look the same. This applies to both photos (it is better to use one color scheme) and text design.
Several effective ways to promote
After preparing the profile for promotion and developing a content plan, you can smoothly proceed directly to promotion. The following should be used for these purposes:
Hashtags in posts. With their help, more users will be able to find what they are interested in. As tags, you can use both words and phrases, as well as the specific name of the institution, as well as dishes from the menu.
Location. Location tags allow customers to find a cafe on the city map in a couple of clicks. In this case, the platform's algorithms will also help, which will show publications to people nearby.
Targeted advertising is a paid method of promotion that will allow users who are part of the target audience to see your posts.
Conducting contests. Activities can be simple — like and win a free coffee or write a comment under the publication to receive a loyalty card. There is a lot of space for creativity.
Attracting bloggers. Influencers living in the city where the institution operates can help very well in its promotion. In general, it is enough just to do your job well and serve each client at the highest level, then good reviews will not keep you waiting. However, you can speed up this process a little. For this purpose, the blogger needs to be specially invited to the institution and offered to evaluate a number of dishes, and then write a post or write down several stories about visiting the cafe. Subscribers believe their idol, so after a short time you can see the influx of audience not only to the page, but also to the institution itself.
Promotion of the institution in social networks is not an easy task. Before creating an account, you need to do an impressive job, paid services can simplify the promotion in the future, but it is worth considering that these methods require investments.
