There are plenty of ways you can use digital signage to make your restaurant more awesome.
The digital signage software engineers have seen it all. Here are a few things you can do with your digital signs as suggested by the engineers at Kitcast.tv. Try to remember that you are only limited by your imagination. How you make digital signs work for you is what really determines how powerful they are. Digital signs are now. They are the future of modern retail.
1 – Create Interactive Digital Menus
McDonald’s did it, and it is stupefyingly surprising that more people didn’t follow on more quickly. They have revolutionized how the modern fast-food service industry works. They have slashed waiting times for people who visit their premises, and you can do the same too. Even if you are selling regular food, let people pick from interactive menus that allow them to see everything you have on offer and buy it in advance.
2 – Show People Your Menu Items As Videos
There are plenty of things on your menu that people cannot imagine. How do they know what your beef chow mien looks like, and how it differs from your prawn and king crab chow mien? Letting people see your stock menu items is also a great way to get people hungry for items. Again, you are not asking people to imagine your food when they see it on a menu, you are able to show them the sorts of food that are going to make them hungry for more.
3 – Have Live Stock Promotions
Are you overstocked on soups? Have you made too many hot wings? No matter, simply promote your food over the digital signage. You avoid having extra stock lost, and your customers get quick access to your best prices.
4 – Tell People About Your Events
Are you about to have a quiz night? Are you going to host a singing content? Does your place have standup comedians on a certain day? Use your digital signage to tell people about your events. Rather than having posters that you put up and take down every few days, simply show videos of each of the events that are upcoming, and let people choose which they attend.
5 – Drum Up a Little Social Media Interest
There are several ways you can draw a little bit of social media attention in the real world, especially if you have interactive digital signs that allow people to leave comments, answer questions, take part and so forth. If you can work a referral program into these systems, then you can reach a broader audience by having your customers sharing promotional information with their friends on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
6 – Keep People Entertained
Having entertainment screens in a restaurant may seem like a crazy idea since people tend to go to restaurants to enjoy themselves, but what about something to keep the kids entertained? What about the people who want to watch TV while they are eating a meal? Have you considered people signs into the kids’ rooms to help keep them quieter while their parents are trying to enjoy themselves?
7 – Promote Your Food or Services
As mentioned in part two of this article, you can promote your food to people and show them what your menu items actually look like. Don’t forget that you can show people different variants of your foods. Show them the difference between your chicken soft tacos and your beef soft tacos. Tell people about your pool tables, kid’s park, karaoke hall and your private rooms for family functions.
