Market Your Restaurant Business Is Reopening Online

When you reopen your restaurant, the fastest way you can communicate with people is online. Listed below are the primary online ways to inform your community that your business is open.

  • Google My Business: Google my business is the next thing you should update. Make sure all of your Covid-19 policies are correct. You can upload your menu to Google My Business and you can post about your reopening. This will help anyone who searches for your restaurant to know the correct information.
  • Social Media: Finally after doing all of that you can post on social media that your restaurant is open for business! Make sure you update your website and Google My Business first. A lot of people will see the post, but later they will look up your restaurant, diner, pub, or cafe for more information.
  • Email Marketing: If you have a list of emails from people making reservations online you should email all of them and inform them that your eatery has reopened.
