Over the years, restaurant industry is facing lots of problem in getting the right traffic at their restaurant. Marketing and placing their product right is a great challenge in a market where people have become very open to eating out.
From last few years entrepreneurs especially the small restaurants are facing various difficulties in getting their business right, especially when they also have an online presence. Today they do not have a one stop platform that takes care of the complete online presence.
They also do not have any control on media through current channels such as aggregators. Meanwhile, small restaurants are provided no transparency in the management of their marketing budgets and cannot track the conversions through the channels.
Hence they currently resort to traditional means such as OOH, and print. As this is expensive and hard to track the industry is facing lots of challenges.
Service providers like, Sokrati provides clients with complete online marketing for the restaurant. From launching to managing their website to smoothen their business, these channels are helping the small players achieve their right business.
