What are the best marketing strategies for a restaurant if I don't want to spend money on traditional marketing such as newspapers and magazines.

Hello @ChristianN559! Great question. We've got several tips you can take a look at, specifically for the restaurant industry, that will help you fill your seats, grow your list, and build customer loyalty.


I would also encourage you to consider event marketing. As a restaurant, that may not be what comes to your mind first.

Once you have an idea in mind - whether it's trivia night, a cooking class, or even a book club - read up on how to ensure the success of your event.

We also have a recording of Q&A from our "Making Sense of Online Marketing for Restaurants" Webinar you may be interested in.
