The team at Restaurant and Catering Australia have been supporting members in many ways during these difficult times. In fact, they have been supporting the industry since 1922. In 2020 with many venues closed during the early stages of the pandemic, they created a campaign #EatAloneTogether to help drive takeaway business sales. This campaign in conjunction with Entertainment and Unilever Food Solutions has now evolved into #TakeawayTuesday.
Many restaurants embraced takeaway during the lockdown, proving that takeaway can be a valuable revenue source. Creating awareness and leveraging off a national campaign, venues can create a new reason to engage customers on a traditionally quiet evening.
An added benefit of launching takeaway, is that many venues added providers that collect and pass on customer details. This can help a business rapidly build a database of engaged and recent customers.
To support this campaign the team at Impact Data have created a dedicated #TakeawayTuesday email template in your account.
To find it simply navigate to: Communications>Create new>Email>Business Critical Emails.
All you need to do is update the links to your ordering partner and menu. This is a typical TalkBox template that can be easily updated to suit your needs and branding.
SMS is a really effective way to get attention and boost your Tuesday sales. SMS communications reach more customers than any other marketing tool and can help promote campaigns on the day they are valid. Remember to select SMS when you are setting up your campaign. This type of campaign is perfect for SMS, learn about how one Impact Data’s customers bought in an additional 100 orders with one simple SMS.
So let’s make every Tuesday #TakeawayTuesday and remember to get your customers to share their experience on your social media pages with the #TakeawayTogether tag.
