Get Moving: How Mobile Marketing Can Help Your Restaurant

How can mobile change your business?

In today’s crowded marketplace, small factors can have a massive impact on your bottom line. Take your mobile phone for example. Over two-thirds of Americans own a smartphone – and that number keeps on growing. So it comes as no surprise that, arguably, one of the most significant factors to success is having a strong mobile presence for your business. Having a well-designed website is a great start, and having one that is mobile-friendly is even more important. You can even bolster your availability by adding a mobile app to the mix. By being discoverable on the mobile web and in mobile apps, you ensure that repeat customers and new diners alike can easily find your restaurant whether they’re at their computer or on the go.

Aren’t all websites “mobile?”

Not all websites are created equal. Many websites, especially those designed before this decade, were not coded to have responsive, or mobile-friendly HTML. According to Nation’s Restaurant News, 92 percent of consumers search for a restaurant on a mobile web browser, and 62 percent of consumers are less likely to select a restaurant if they can’t view the menu easily on their mobile device. Not only that, but 84 percent of consumers will make their decision off of more than one restaurant when looking online, so it’s essential for you to capture their attention quickly.

I want a great mobile site. What now?

How can you make sure your restaurant is set up for success on mobile? Your first step is to ensure that your website is mobile-optimized. Google now factors in whether or not your website is mobile-friendly in their search ranking process. To help check if your website will meet their search engine requirements, use their mobile-friendly website test.

Once you’ve confirmed that your restaurant will show up in search rankings, turn your focus to your website content. What are consumers looking for? You can sum this up with the classic five Ws:

  • Who (your restaurant name)
  • What (your menu & reservations)
  • When (hours of operation)
  • Where (business address and directions)
  • Why (any specials – ex. happy hour, Restaurant Week, seasonal offers)

Bonus if you can include your business’ mobile app and social media channels on your website, giving your restaurant multiple ways to stay top of mind with consumers and build a relationship and rapport. As more and more consumers are using their smartphones to keep up-to-date with everything from news, to pop culture, to their favorite brands, restaurants and businesses, now is the time to capture their loyalty on mobile and start a dialogue. An app can complement your mobile site, delivering push notifications and loyalty incentives. Interesting posts and photos on your social media are great ways to engage with your customers and share stories about your business.

Let’s master mobile!

With the majority of diners booking their reservations via mobile device, it’s never been more important to let your online presence shine.

  9. Rachel^My husband loves Gas Monkey Garage so I got him this shirt for his birthday. He usually wears a size XL t-shirt&#44 but sometimes things you buy on the internet run small&#44 so I erred on the side of caution and got him an XXL. It was the right call&#44 and he wears it all the time.~5|Sharon^Got this as a gift for my BF. At 6’3 205 lbs I thought i was safe getting him an XL … I was wrong . It fits more like a large with the length of a medium. The quality of the shirt is nice along with the logo . I would make sure to size up & definitely recommend them adding a talls to the sides~3|Brandi Alexandria Armstrong^The product quality is good and just as I expected but… I ordered this t shirt believing it was red letters according to the picture. The shirt I received had very pink lettering. My husband hates to wear pink in his wardrobe. Not excited I got something other than what I ordered and don’t want to fool with sending it back.~3|HUSKER 2611^These shirts are from China and are not true to size~3|tcc1968^My husband is very happy happy with this shirt!~5|Hawgfan^This is agift for our daughter.She likes the vintage and old subject t-shirts.What could be cooler than a Gas Monkey Garage tee?~4|Ntj007^Very dissapointed with this. Runs 2 to 3 sizes smaller and took forever to get to me. .didn’t like the fabv m~3|Traci Greer^Great shirt!!~5|BRANDI R JENKINS^Color is much brighter than pictured&#44 which unfortunately was dissapointing. I was hoping for a more distressed look. Otherwise seams in good condition/quality. Fast shipping.~4|Moises^The shirt seemed to be a good deal. In the picture the lettering was red but once I received the shirt the lettering was pink the shirt also came with a very bad odor.~3|

  10. Amazon Customer^This shirt is NOT 100% cotton&#44 as advertised. The shirt is made of an uncomfortable polyester-like material. It feels like wearing a rash guard. And their is NO WAY this shirt is officially licensed. The inside of the collar has no “Bob Burgers” tag like the shirt in the photo. It’s just white&#44 probably because this shirt is a sad rash guard ripoff.The best part of this is when I contacted the seller. They told me they wouldn’t refund me because the shipping costed more than the shirt. They told me to “send as gift to a friend.” I wouldn’t give this shirt to my worse enemy! If I could give zero stars I would.~3|Jennifer Abreu^my sister loved it but it was way too small. I had to return and get a larger size. this shirt runs small&#44 I suggest ordering one size larger than your original t shirt size.~5|Roxanne Dunn^I wear a medium adult and ended up wiha 2xx for it to fit without being too tight orto large. Super soft material.~5|Amazon Customer^I got this as a gift for my girlfriend&#44 from what I had read before making the purchase the shirts run kind of small.I got one size larger then I usually would and it fit perfectly. She loves this shirt.~5|nkmiami^Bought this for my daughter&#44 and she loves it.~5|Allan F.^My gf gets compliments all the time for this shirt. Fit is as expected.~5|Rashika Stephens^Don’t buy this shirt. The color is no where near as vibrant as the picture.~3|Sherry Milliner^Very long~3|Gypsy Kat^I love this shirt. I wanted it I got it. I’ve had so many random people stop me to say they love Bob’s Burgers or my shirt! I love Bob’s and all the characters. My husband and daughter all has their own shirts. This is a fan’s must own.~5|Tuzo^It is great. I ordered an extra large to make sure it was lose but it was a little too lose&#44 my mistake. Although the picture is not as bright or vived as the picture leads us to belevie .~4|Mi-CheleLynette^It was JUST ok. Fit a little big. Very Soft. Nothing special and not as vibrant as it looks online.~3|Amazon Customer^I love my shirt it is long so I can wear with leggings or blouse the bottom up~4|Lisa Jones^I love shiny details&#44 this looks even better in person !!!!!~5|

  11. Amazon Customer^I love the shirt&#44 but this is a gift for my son&#44 so i wish i can say more. Hopefully he loves it. Thanks. The shirt looks like it good material~5|LILY^Its was very comfortable~5|muritala olawale^Perfect fit&#44 good quality&#44 good price. Will buy it again and again and again.~5|Philip Froeschle^Great~5|MIKE^Fake but not horrible.~3|

  12. AQ7^Looks nothing like the picture and it’s not even the brand of t shirt as stated either. This looks completely bootleg! Plastic bag package came from CHINA!~3|TeamTribble^Super soft and fits perfect. I am 6’3″ and 225 and bought the XL. It’s more of form fit T-shirt&#44 but not too skinny. I think its a perfect cut. Would definitely buy again.~5|allise hallman^Fantastic shirt&#44 great quality and washed nice. The color was unique so that was nice too. It’s a plain t-shirt though with a simple Ford logo across the chest so I thought it was pricey&#44 that was the only bad thing about the product. I would recommend it though.~3|JSchreck^Nice light fabric and comfortable t-shirt. Fitment for me was perfect – I’m a stocky 5’10” 195 lbs. Would buy another one of these shirts again.~5|jackie britton^Husband loved it!~4|Stacy Beam^Awesome!!! Perfect size! Very&#44Very nice shirt!~5|jcook7166^Fits and feels great !~5|Lauren C.^This shirt fit like a kids large&#44 would never buy again. Waste of money to return~3|Just do it^Excellent~5|Stephen Michael Ford&#44 Jr.^Great shirt. Comfortable high-quality fabric. Arrived on time. It was a pleasure doing business with the vendor.~5|

  13. Brittany^We bought this shirt for my brother in law for christmas. It was exactly as I expected it to be. It was a reasonable price and a nice gift for a jeep owner. Pleased with the purchase!~5|Justin B.^Nice quality shirt. Fits as expected. Jeep logo is printed on nicely.~5|Amazon Customer^Fits well but it runs a little short. However&#44 my boyfriend loved it as a gift so I am happy with this purchase!~4|

  14. Pamela D. Chapman^Love this shirt it was perfect for the concert I attended. “The Rain Tour~5|fashprof^Love it! I usually wear a medium&#44 but sent it back and got a larger sizer. Love the colors&#44 the length (it covers the hips&#44 and the sfit (it’s girl power shapely). Very quick delivery. Highly recommended!~5|Amazon Customer^False advertisement. The item was suppose to be an official Beatles Apple logo product in charcoal. The product I received has NO MANUFACTURE LABEL at all and is brown.~4|Reid Neu^Nice shirt runs small~3|Margaret Martell^Our daughter absolutely loves this shirt&#44 and the fit on her is perfect. Very nice!~5|

  15. jennifer mills^Good~5|Richard H.^good~4|Amazon Customer^They didn’t even give the correct shirt&#44 I needed the one in the picture for a Halloween costume and now its to late. Let alone the size was 2 sizes to small. -_- very annoyed~3|Amazon Customer^Kinda small for me~3|Amazon Customer^Great~5|Cheryl^Great shirt.~5|Julianna Wang^Great product! Material is not as nice as expected but you definitely get your money worth~4|

  16. Erika^The material is like a spandex material and it is very poorly made&#44 look slike something you would buy at a flea market for a couple dollars. I’m in the process to try and return the shirt but I’m getting the run around and they are telling me they will reiemburse me $4.00 but not the whole amount. Big waste of time and money~3|MoJo^This was a horrible purchase. First the order kept getting delayed&#44 it took forever to recoeve. I tried multiple times to contact the seller&#44 to no avail. When I finally got the product it looked horrendous! All the faces were faded&#44 almost non existent&#44 the quality of the fabric itsel lf was terrible. Since I havent been able to reach the seller I probably wont even get a refund. Very upset.~3|CBoekhoven^The shirt didn’t actually ship until I message the seller after it missed the shipping window. showed up extremely late. Shirt was too small based on the size listed&#44 and the graphic on the front isn’t near what the image looks like. The print is DULLLLLLLL. Not bright at all. Looks like a cheap iron on. Also the graphic does not fill up the front of the shirt like in the image. It is about 50% of that size.DO NOT ORDER THIS. I DONT CARE IF RYAN REYNOLDS TELLS YOU TO DO IT. JUST DONTI ultimately had to file a claim with Amazon about the seller/product.~3|Chibara01^The shirt was stiff almost as if when they washed it before sending it they forgot to use fabric softener. All and all i love the shirt but the emojis are made out of fabric paint&#44 which will tear&#44 wear&#44 and flake off the shirt over time from excessive use. Great product in any case.~4|michael cagle^POOR&#44 DARK AND FADED SCREEN PRINT…LOVE THE DESIGN.. BUT IT’S NOT VIBRANT~4|Badguy101proof^The Material is horrible and the print is too small. There are no size indicators and the shirt was 2 sizes under what I ordered as far as I can tell.~3|Miss Frost^So the shirt that I got was a huge disappointment. The Mighty Fine/We Love Fine logo/tag wasn’t there. The images were blurry&#44 distorted&#44 and already chipping off when I opened the package. I had originally purchased this tee as a gift&#44 but ended up having to go through the refund process because I was ashamed to give it to someone. Definitely not worth the price.~3|Bellamsella^No stars won’t let me upload pictures~3|Kaitlyn^It took forever to arrive and the quality was mediocre. I could have made the shirt with my printer and iron ons from home.~3|Michael Anderson^This is why you don’t order from Amazon while drinking. The shirt is awful. Deadpool is brown&#44 not red. The graphics are small. It feels more like a poly blend than cotton. It is going straight to the thrift store donation bin.~3|

  17. jrmcr^It’s awesome&#44 great design. The cobra is fluorescent gray and it doesn’t seem from the picture but I like it. I bought it size S&#44 I’m a 63kg and 1.67m guy and this shirt fit well but a little small&#44 it fits all around my body and it is not baggy. I don’t blame the manuifacturer&#44 it is well known that every brand has different sizes even if you get S&#44 M or whatever. I like the shirt and recommend it but be aware of measures&#44 otherwise you’ll not be allowed to eat much lol~4|steve wilson^super great fit and wonderful and fast shipping!!!~5|MARK DOUGLAS^Awesome graphic! The yellow/green print is neon. So if you don’t like neon&#44 don’t buy this shirt. Got a large&#44 but it’s a slight smaller then normal. It still fits well&#44 but if you are a slightly bigger large t-shirt fit&#44 get the x-large size.~5|

  18. l2^Seems like a well made sweatshirt&#44 but sizing is huge compared to other Adidas shirts I own. I weigh 160 pounds and Adidas size medium normally fits me well. This shirt in size medium was so big that I was too big by several inches in all directions. Exchanged it for a size small and that fits a lot better&#44 but length is still unusually long compared to other sweatshirts that I own.Also&#44 I don’t get the gray panel in the back. It appears to be made from the same fabric as the rest of the shirt&#44 so why not make it the same color. The clashing colors is not attractive to me.~3|Dan B^Bought on of these and after receiving it I got right back on line and ordered another one. Nice relaxed fit and plenty warm. Can’t beat them for the price.~5|Mark E Moore^Nice fleece lining and good material on the outer shell make this a go to garment in the winter~5|Johnboy4441^Great price. Fits great and looks nice.~5|Mike K^Looks ok&#44 but too large.~3|

  19. Michael A. Bageant^Perfect size for me. I went one size up like recommended and it worked. I am a US medium but I ordered a large. A little hard to get on and off the suspender type shorts but I assume this is the case with all these types of shorts. I like the gear to fit snug and it was just that.~5|Adriele Fugal^my husband really likes this outfit. He said it is comfortable.~4|O. WONG^excellent quality for the price you pay.~5|DavyJones^Good material&#44 good price and fits perfectly~5|Chan Chung^I like the color~4|

  20. Steven P.^THIS IS A HORRIBLE EXAMPLE OF A GUY HARVEY SHIRT&#44 WRONG COLOR&#44WRONG MATERIAL&#44 WRONG SIZE&#44 NO POCKET&#44 CHEAP MATERIAL IT IS GARBAGE~3|joanne^NOT HAPPY AT ALL WITH THESE TEE SHIRTS THAT I ORDER FROM THIS CHENGXIANG CITY. DONT KNOW WHERE THATS FROM WHAT CONTRY BUT I WILL NOT ORDER AGAIN AND THIS SHIRT CAME WITH NO POCKET LIKE IT WAS SOPPOSE TOO ;(~3|Donald L. Fransen^great shirt~5|Amazon Customer^Not a color I normally wear&#44 as it is too bright for me&#44 but it fits perfectly and I love it.~5|Tim Leech^Good quality shirt delivered as promised~5|Lynn^This shirt was a complete joke. I bought it for my 15 year old son for Christmas. It doesn’t say Guy Harvey on it ANYWHERE. The graphic on it is smaller than an 8×10. The tag inside was cut and the package took forever to get because it came directly from China. I’m trying to return it now&#44 and I have to wait for the company (not Amazon) to approve the return request. This is insane.~3|Amazon Customer^thicker material but my husband loved the shirt~5|Kristian^Bought for my boyfriend as a birthday present and he absolutely loved it.~5|

  21. Jesse Allen White^I wish i could give this shirt zero stars. It took forever to get&#44 i mean like over a month. The shirt is much smaller than its supposed to be and the print is horrible. Its faded and looks like crap. Do not buy it!~3|Amazon Customer^Lame.~3|George M Cobb^Ordered a 2x shirt what arrived was a medium at best with a 2x tag~3|Froggle Rock^Great shirt.. Official merch!!! Always do your homework on that!!!!~5|Amazon Customer^Perfect fit. Good quality~5|Bronson^This shirt is excellent! It fits great and I dig it to no end.~5|amazon customer^I absolutely love my shirt. Service was excellent!!~5|Amazon Customer^100% OK! Thanks a lot!~5|

  22. Stephen^I love this shirt! I often get double looks from people. Some find it offensive (I’m white). It seems a little ridiculous that a white man can’t wear a shirt that shows his support of Civil Rights&#44 but I digress. This shirt is not only historically significant&#44 but poignant in its message that all men and women were created equal.Also&#44 the fit and quality are great!~5|Chey^I’ve had a lot of strange looks when I wear this shirt. Some have laughed&#44 some obviously didn’t pass History&#44 and there was one particularly angry looking lady who probably thought I was being sarcastic. Shirts with comments are supposed to evoke reactions from people&#44 hopefully positive&#44 and this shirt definitely helps me find people like me. Otherwise&#44 it fits as expected&#44 not overly long or short. The words are large but aren’t in your face. I think I read another review for this shirt that said the writing was too small but I think that person might have been blind… Anyways&#44 good shirt&#44 bought 2 others from Best Threads and haven’t been disappointed.~5|Lady Di^I like it. Lettering is not too big but enough~4|Amazon Customer^love it! first time i wore this someone offered to pay me 50$ to take it off and give it to them!~5|I W^The quality of the shirt was nice and I was able to wear right out of the bag. I’ve upset racist with this shirt. I think I’ll buy more good job you guys keep up the great work.~5|Nicole^BEST. SHIRT.!I GET A LOT OF COMPLIMENTS AS TO WHERE I GOT IT.ALWAYS SAY AMAZON. DUH.I WEAR IT WHEN THERE’S ALOT OF WHITE PEOPLE AROUND HAHA~5|Diara^Love it!!! Fast shipment~5|Toy J^I have this shirt in navy in XL and I liked the fit because it falls loose in the waist and not too tight on the top portion (38DD). This one I thought was the same but it’s more like a tshirt than a tee but I still like it and based on how it’s made it’s true to size~4|Yoshi^This shirt is everything. I’ve received multiple compliments and inquiries about this shirt.! I give it 4 stars because the shoulder line was stretched in a weird form. I tried to get it out but no luck maybe when I wash it. Overall it’s still a win~4|Jami Jones^This shirt is well made and looks like it will last. The print is clear and the fit is perfect. The shade of blue I purchased is exactly as I expected. The package arrived quickly and contained a card with a free t-shirt offer inside. I haven’t looked into the free shirt yet&#44 but I plan to. I would purchase this item again.~5|

  25. C. George^I ordered this in white and khaki. I wanted a hat to give my scalp some protection from the sun&#44 and I like this style. When they arrived&#44 one of the brims was crooked&#44 and the hats were way too big. Also&#44 the distressing is in places where it would never occur in real life&#44 but that is visible in the pictures&#44 so I should have known better. I ended up sewing the inside lining to the hat to create a channel and put some 3/4 elastic inside the channel&#44 which stretched from the edges of the brim around the back. I used hair ties to bend and hold the brim together and adjust the crookedness. It was a quick fix and now I really like them&#44 and more importantly&#44 they now fit without looking ridiculous.In the pics included&#44 there are before pics of both hats&#44 after pics of the white hat&#44 and a pic that hopefully helps show what I did to make it fit for other people with small heads and rudimentary sewing skills.~4|Angelic Pro Photo^This hat as a s/m fits more like a m/L&#44 sadly I had to give it to my boyfriend for him to wear ??~3|Aurora^Bought this for my Dad. He loved it and bought a few more colors.~5|phil^Good deal~4|Jason Teague^It was as I wanted not to small.~4|RAYMOND GRANT^comfortable cap~4|

Would recommend :)~5|

  39. sino8r^I ordered this along with the Timberland version (just to be safe) and this one is by far the better hat. It actually fits and doesn’t look like a train conductors hat like some of the other military style hats. I did have to stretch it a bit but it’s a great replacement for my worn out Converse brand cadet hat. It is made to be slightly worn but not too much so that it looks silly. It’s a thick soft material and seems to be very well made for the price. I couldn’t be happier! It has a small place to hold ammo but I doubt it would actually hold anything larger than 22 caliber ammo. I ordered 6 enert 22 long caliber cartridges and will see if they look good or not. Might be kind of cool with them. Either way&#44 it looks&#44 feels&#44 and wears like a great hat! I hope I helped someone with their decision on their next hat!~4|James Irmiger^First&#44 I love the hat! As others stated&#44 the distressing is either love-it or leave-it&#44 but the pictures of it are accurate&#44 so you can decide for yourself.FIT:I bought the L/XL and my head measures 24.5. This hat fits perfectly! There isn’t an adjustment strap&#44 so if you are bigger than 25&#44 I’d say look for something else. The brim measures 2.25 deep and is normal baseball cap width. The hat also has a taper to it from front to back. The front is 3 deep and the rear is 3.5. This isn’t really noticeable&#44 but it helps make it fit better. Very nice.COLOR:The color is best described as a very true faded olive drab&#44 reminiscent of surplus military gear. I’ve added 2 pictures for clarity. One is next to my son’s unfaded dark olive hat and the other is of the very nicely finished insides. You can see the color difference&#44 and no&#44 it isn’t brownish at all&#44 just super&#44 super faded&#44 like it has been sitting in the sun for a very long time.CONSTRUCTION:The material seems like a nice&#44 quality&#44 mid-weight cotton. It’s soft and supple&#44 yet feels much thicker than other hats I’ve owned. The headband is lined and the inside seams are taped. Stitching is very good and it’s color is identical to the fabric.~5|W.T.Hoffman^I’ve worn this hat for a year now&#44 having washed it about 20 times. I wear it to the gym or on bike rides&#44 so its constantly getting soaked with sweat.What you’ll discover&#44 is that the head band will sort of fall apart on you. Around the inside of the strip of cloth that runs around the inside the hat&#44 is some white polyester felt. It’s disintegrated almost completely. When I take the hat out of the wash&#44 the doubled up cloth part of the headband is unfolded&#44 and the felt has pulled apart. Also&#44 obviously it’s a cotton hat&#44 so it’ll shrink a bit in the wash. Since it is cotton&#44 it stretches too when you wear it. I have a LARGE head&#44 and this hat is often tight on me. So if you have an XL head&#44 I don’t know if it will fit you or not. Probably not. The thing about this hat that has always annoyed me most of all&#44 is the “distressed” nature of the hat. Why? Well&#44 on the brim&#44 around the edge&#44 are three button holes spaced at regular intervals. It just looks so stupid. On the surface of the brim&#44 are two more button holes&#44 apparently for the same purpose. If you’ve ever seen a hat look old&#44 rugged and aged&#44 you’ll know it doesn’t happen by means of button holes at regular intervals. I hated this when I got the hat&#44 I hate it now. Now&#44 the thing I like about the hat&#44 is that it doesn’t look like it’s puffy on my head. Some caps will sit high off the surface of the head. Great for coneheads&#44 odd looking on earthlings. All things considered&#44 I like the hat&#44 but if I needed another one&#44 I’d look for a hat just like this&#44 without the distressed look&#44 by which I mean the bizarre buttonholes. I’ll just buy a new hat that looks new and let time&#44 nature and the hand of fate create the distressed quality on its own.~4|Roney^Too small. Looks great but the L-XL doesn’t come close to fitting my head. I know that having a head 23″ in circumference that makes me a 7-3/4 hat size&#44 this XL is not even close… Measure your own head before buying. One of my workers has a small head&#44 I had him try it on&#44 I was going to give it to him&#44 and he said it was too tight! 5 other guys tried it&#44 too small for everyone! I’m not returning because it doesn’t worth my time&#44 but I want to warn future buyers that this item is not true to size. Perhaps for a kid its fine.~3|Brian Knepper^I really like this hat&#44 I simply wish it would be slightly larger. I read a lot of reviews all over the board about sizing either too small or too large. I would. Or take either side&#44 I’ll simply say the hat sent to me was slightly small for a large/xtra large fitting. The hat seems to be of nice quality. The distressed marks are not as tacky as some people claim&#44 however under a close eye do not appear natural looking.

I suppose it’s a question of shrink or stretch… This is a well-made and quickly shipped hat&#44 but the pre-distressed material ensures a short shelf life and looks like it was done by a precision distressing machine. Uniform&#44 evenly spaced tears of exactly the same size and shape. A shame&#44 I want to like it more.~3|Amazon Customer^I bought the L/XL assuming the hat would fit my head like any other. The hat went on my head&#44 but felt like a M/L and I had to force it to get it on. Otherwise&#44 the color and distressing is exactly what I wanted~3|
