Who actually does marketing for their business?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi Everyone,

I am doing a bit of market research into how coffee shops and cafes attract customers and what their perspectives are on running their businesses.

I'd like to have a chat with anybody who runs/has ran a coffee shop or cafe and has thoughts on how to bring customers in and what the challenges, pros and cons are for different approaches and any experiences anybody has had. 

For instance:

1. Has anyone ever ran promotions and figured out if they were making them additional revenue or providing lasting customers?

2. Does anyone make much use of social media platforms and promote their place through those channels? Has this tangibly led to more customers?

3. Has anyone made changes to their menus with a view to attract a different type of customer?

4. Does anyone know whether they have different types of customers and knowingly cater to them differently?

5. Anyone ever tried anything specific to bring in customers during quiet hours?

 

There are a few ideas above but I would appreciate anybody who has anything to add within this overall topic to just generally go through their experiences and/or perspectives on these matters.

Many thanks for any contributions in advance!

James

My friend is addicted to coffee, and she doesn't go only to Starbucks or other chain coffee shops. She chooses coffee shops and cafes on Instagram if they make nice photos. I know it's weird, but might help you. Also for her favorite ones, she checks for promotions online. I just go to those one, she recommended.

I personally ask for recommendations for new coffee shops, and check promotions if my favorite or local coffee shops have any.
