Inspiration and ideas to help transition your business for COVID-19

Our industry is going through one of the toughest challenges. We are here to help you generate revenue, remain open and get through this.

If you are able to continue to trade via take-away or delivery options, now more than ever, it is crucial to communicate to your customers.

Below are some of the must-do activities venues around the world are undertaking with links to examples.

 

Setting up new automations to maximise revenue

If your business is open for take-away or delivery, we can help you setup new automations to help keep a steady flow of orders. 

Some examples of automations:

 

You can sell gift vouchers, rescue packs, 
or any popular items right within MyGuestlist

Many venues are selling vouchers, packs or other items their customers have enjoyed from them. Some of these are:

 

Don't go dark on customers and stay in touch

Remaining in constant communication with your customers is a reminder that you're not only trading, but a visual reminder on the yummy offers available to them during times where they'll need more than the usual amount of comfort.

Don't forget to have call-to-action buttons to make it easy. Include details of your menu, photos of your meals and direct call-to-action buttons to allow users to call or order online. 

 

Online Payments

We have worked with customers to allow them to offer an online shop for pick-up and delivery of menu items.

This is a great way to utilise technology to capture payments instantly and process the orders without relying on phone calls while making the option available 24/7 to your customers. 

Here are some examples:

Morso at home
Elaia take away
Emerson on wheels

Shiraz Frozen Meal Delivery Service

The Viking Feast Presale

 

Disabling Automated Campaigns

We recommend a review of all your existing automations to ensure that those which no longer apply are disabled and others are altered. 

Automated campaigns such as We-Miss-You, Birthdays, Sign Up Offers should be disabled. 

To view and update your automations, click on Database and then select Date Reminders.
