Marketing Advice

 

Marketing an Indian Restaurant

Promotional tactics for Indian restaurants are exceptionally diverse. But in our experience, there are a handful of tips and strategies that will deliver the best return for your marketing efforts.

If you are a business leader who sees marketing as a path to give your Indian restaurant a competitive advantage you're not alone.

Marketing increases the brand footprint of a Indian restaurant using a carefully crafted mix of techniques and tactics.

Marketing Consultants

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 Indian restaurant' core competencies, value and product points. Without the presence of an experienced professional, it's easy to miss opportunities in the marketplace and focus your efforts on outdated tactics. As we continue to experience changes in the Indian restaurant arena, businesses are relying on consultants for creative tactics and techniques.

Cost Tracking

Cost is an issue in marketing an Indian restaurant. When businesses buy mailing lists, they expect a return for their investment. Unfortunately, they don't always get it. More often than not, you'll get a better ROI from highly rated list providers than you will from cheaper alternatives. A solid mailing list minimizes the risks associated with stale leads or leads that fall outside of your marketing parameters.

But mailing lists aren't the only way you can reduce costs. Most accounting software solutions have features that allow you to track costs in multiple expense categories and receive alerts when expenses suddenly swing outside of normal parameters.

Loss Leaders

Smart Indian restaurants frequently sell specific products at ridiculously low margins to boost traffic and new customer acquisition. Moreover, a loss leader marketing strategy can compensate for dead periods when customers tend to making purchases. But to be effective, loss leader marketing requires planning, especially in product selection and price points. For the majority of Indian restaurants, the real benefits of loss leaders emerge through the careful marketing of other products, usually offered at a much higher margin. With adequate preparation, a loss leader promotion can be publicized through all of your company's marketing channels, including the company website.
