Offer Promotions Via The App

The first thing that you should do is offer promotions for purchases that are made through the app. Some people don’t have your mobile restaurant app because they feel like they don’t need it. They have waiters and waitresses to come and take their order, so why would they need an app? You need to get them out of this mindset, and the best way to do this is through promotions. Everyone loves being able to get some money off, or getting something for free when you purchase an item. 

Make it known that these promotions can only be found on the app, and we can guarantee that more people than ever will be downloading.

Social Media Marketing

Another thing that you can do is post about it on social media. You can create a big announcement that you are now introducing mobile ordering in your restaurant, with the name of the app for people to download. Make sure that they know that this is for their convenience as much as it is for yours. Make points such as not having to wait for someone to come and take your order, meaning that you can speed up the process if you don’t have a lot of time.

If you post about it on social media, more people are going to know about the app. This is where you are going to have the broadest possible reach, getting to the most amount of people so it’s certainly something that you should be considering. 

Incentivize Downloading Your App

Finally, you want to incentivize downloading your mobile restaurant app. Think about the points that we have just made above, and use these to get people to download your app! Of course, you should post all about it on social media as part of your marketing campaign, but they are also fantastic reasons to download the app .For example, it is fantastic for those people who find ordering in a restaurant a little bit awkward. Ensure that you make these points, and you will see people downloading your app faster than you ever could have imagined.
