Why your Restaurant Needs a Digital Marketer

Running a successful restaurant takes juggling a lot of plates. There’s the front of the house plate, where you’re making sure that all of your wait staff is on the same page. There's also the back of the house plate, where your chefs have to know how to cook the food and get it out in a timely manner.  Then there’s administration, human resources, and the giant plate of marketing, including digital marketing these days.

Digital marketing for restaurants consists of a lot of plates.  There’s the SEO side, there’s the blog posting side, there’s keeping the websites up to date, there’s communicating with people about your product, and more.  It can often get out of hand – but you’re doing your restaurant a disservice if you don’t at least have one of those marketing plates in place.

Here are 3 vital reasons why your restaurant should have at least one dedicated digital marketer on staff.
