You’re an ahead-of-the-curve restaurateur. You understand the importance of a strong online presence for your restaurant. You also know that a whole new generation of guests will want to do more and more with your business online, including ordering takeout and delivery from the web.

You have everything you need to succeed:

  • A streamlined, mobile-friendly website
  • The MustHaveMenus Online Ordering app installed
  • Any specials or promotions applied to your online ordering menu

And yet, you still haven’t received your first online order. Or maybe you’re just not getting as many as you’d like. It turns out, there’s a couple of important factors that can increase your business – and the most important one is letting your customers know what you’re offering!

1. Turn your takeout menu into a sales force
One of the easiest ways to let your guests know that you have online ordering is to add a small note on your takeout menu. Use the footer space, or even the front panel to announce this exciting new option!

2. Post about it on social media

Your guests have liked you on Facebook and followed you on Twitter – they love your food, they love your atmosphere, and they want to be the first ones to know about anything new. So don’t leave them in the dark – post a link to your online ordering page, and do it often!

3. Update your voicemail message

One simple and very effective way to let your customers know about online ordering is to add it to your voicemail message or your on-hold message (if you have one). That way, if your customers call in after hours or when you’re busy, they’ll automatically find out that they don’t even need to call for takeout anymore – they can just go to your website!
