Online Marketing For Your Online Storefront
By Dwayne Reno
Your online storefront is the greatest tool in your online marketing bag of tricks. With the help of your website online; marketing will help in educating customers about what makes your restaurant, bar or café different from your competitors. I did an article on how to differentiate your foodservice buisenss online, here.
Still many foodservice operators are getting this wrong or have ignored their website all together. This week I would like to look at your online storefront and why it is important to your online marketing strategy.
People come to my store why should I care about my website?
That might be the case, but the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) states that “Canadians spend more time online than anybody else in the world – an average of 45 hours/month”. They also said that “8 out of 10 Canadians are online”.

Your website and online marketing needs to stay current with your brand. This could make the different between having a new customer or not…. Also, customers are not on your website to be amazed by flashy graphics and animation; customers come to your website to find out simple things:
A good online marketing strategy will allow your customer to find this information online in the form of content marketing, emails, banners ads, or online product placement. Your customers are online; the goal is to let them know who you are and what you are selling.
