Renton, WA (PressExposure) September 28, 2009 -- In an age when three out of five new restaurants fail within three years, here's something worth at least a few extra portions: proven restaurant-marketing secrets that can boost sales by at least 33 percent--and make clients "fall in love" with your business.
That's just part of what's inside Restaurant Marketing Secrets: Dramatically Improve your Restaurant Profits while Spending Less Money, just released by Outskirts Press. This breakthrough book from successful restaurateur Jose Luis Riesco finally brings the strategies of the nation's top-performing restaurants to businesses of any size.
"By the end of the book, you should already be making at least 33 percent more than you are making now, if you are serious about learning and implement the techniques that I will teach you," writes Riesco, a restaurant marketing consultant who owned an upscale family restaurant in Bellevue, Wash.
At the core of the book is a relentless focus on effective and low-cost techniques to boost marketing, streamline operations and ratchet up sales. More than a collection of tips, this charts-and-graphics-packed guide is like a restaurant owner's business coach, helping managers find the right strategies to achieve their vision of success--whether it's being the premier high-end dining spot in town or a ferociously popular family-friendly place to grab a bite. Among the important insights:
* Find your Unique Selling Proposition--the one thing that sets your restaurant apart. Decide if it's based on service, quality, exclusivity or price. Then, promote it relentlessly to that target market. * Think of revenue on a geometric scale, not a linear one. That means focusing on three key growth areas: client numbers, per-visit spending, and visit frequency. Riesco shows you how. * Discover "small portion desserts." Turns out, clients aren't more satisfied by bigger, more elaborate desserts. Simpler offerings--gelato, for instance--carry larger margins, and clients feel better about splurging on them. * Use bartering to grow your business. Exchanging gift certificates for goods and services reduces the cost to you--and introduces others to your restaurant.
