Quite often you’ve probably come across a goodrestaurant marketing idea, but put it in the too-hard-basket; it cost way too much money, and you couldn’t be sure the juice would be worth the squeeze. Well here we take a look at Three marketing ideas that won’t break the bank, and will easily increase your profits.

Reach Out to a Micro-Influencer

We’re definitely not talking about a Kardashian hawking lip balm to millions of people here, but we are talking about using local social media users with a small but dedicated following. In our case we’re looking for local foodies that enjoy experiencing what your community has to offer. 

According to The Startup, micro-influencers drive 22.2 times more weekly conversations than regular consumers – that’s word of mouth restaurant marketingon steroids. 

How do you find them?

Go through your own social media and see who is commenting. Is there someone with 1,000+ followers? 

Search your own restaurant name as a hashtag and see who is commenting there.

Search hashtags related to your restaurant, e.g. #organiceats and see if anyone local has a dedicated following.

Use services like Scrunch, who can connect you with micro-influencer.

Reach out to them, thank them for their interaction, and invite them for a full service meal at no expense. In exchange, all you ask for is a post about their experience with you. For the cost of a meal, you’ve just reached out to thousands of people who really value what the micro-influencer thinks.
