Promotional items

Smart Phones and Foodies
20% text others about their dining plans
19% search for restaurants that appeal to them
18% look up menus
18% get directions
19% update Facebook
24% take a photo of their meals and companions
Now if you are thinking that these percentages are too low to bother about remember that in the U.S. about 24% of people online are creators and 37% are critics (Forrester Research) and that small group of young people texting in your restaurant are the influential trend setters telling their friends, and complete strangers, what they think about your food, service and establishment. The study from MarketResearch 2.0 also shows that 85% of respondents trust online reviews from fellow diners more than reviews from professionals and food sites. Not everybody in your restaurant is actually online while they are there but it is likely, especially if your clientele is under 45, that more than half of them read online restaurant reviews. What will they find out about you?
