Every Friday, I answer your small business questions in a video blog segment called Ask Small Biz Lady.
This week, we are taking on the question: How do I get more lunch customers?
Here’s the answer:
If you want to get more customers into your retail establishment follow these steps:
- Communicate with your customers
- Change the menu
- Advertise weekly lunch specials
- Start using social media such as a Facebook fan page
- Offer discounts after 2pm
- Develop a contest
