Although innovation is important, consistency is critical when you market a Portuguese restaurant. For businesses in this sector, solid execution and a commitment to core messaging are the most valuable marketing traits.
Simplistic promotional techniques can't penetrate the clutter of the current marketplace. To capture audience attention, you'll need to stay current with the channels they use to receive information and product messages.
Social Media Monitoring
The use of social media as a marketing tool is the latest wave to overtake the small business community. Combined with a functional company website, social media attracts new customers and converts them to brand advocates. Social media can quickly go negative, turning brand advocacy into "badvocacy", a scenario in which consumers and users create content deriding your company and your products. All Portuguese restaurants have too much at stake to ignore derogatory social media mentions. To counter negative social media, you'll need to monitor your brand's online presence and enter the conversation, redirecting negative discussions toward more positive topics.
As a small business owner, it's tempting to think that you have what it takes to market your brand effectively. Maybe you do. But in our experience, there is no substitute for enlisting the services of a qualified marketing consultant. The best consultants possess a range of skills, including the ability to accurately communicate your Portuguese restaurant' value proposition and messaging. More importantly, it will provide the expertise you need to identify the most productive marketing channels and raise your brand profile within the industry. With technology playing a greater role in the Portuguese restaurant arena, businesses are relying on consultants for creative tactics and techniques.
Brochures, business cards, folders, direct mail pieces, and other types of promotional materials are called marketing collateral. For Portuguese restaurants, it's important to make sure every piece of marketing collateral generate reinforces your brand and value proposition. To squeeze the most impact from your collateral, it needs to be targeted toward its recipients. Delivered to the wrong person, a valuable piece of collateral will collect dust. For direct mail campaigns, premium mailing lists from established vendors can protect the value of your investment. It doesn't make sense to invest time and creativity in marketing collateral only to drop the ball on distribution. Without proper attention to distribution details, your Portuguese restaurant's brochures, direct mail letters and other content has no value.
