Social Media Usage for the Restaurant, Food and Beverage Industry

    Kyrris President Kevin Ketels

    Social media usage has exploded. In the advertising business, we say, “follow the eyeballs.” In other words, place your messaging in the channel where people are consuming their media. More and more, people are reading the news, interacting with brands, obtaining product recommendations from friends and finding information through social media. But the benefits of social media go far beyond the number of users. It is also about relationship building in a way that is only possible in the dynamic, interactive social media environment. This presentation will address the unique requirements of developing a social media program for restaurant, food and beverage industry.

    This webinar will introduce you to the most common social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc) and their applications for promoting your business to new potential customers and strengthening relationships with existing customers. Participants will review the components required to build a comprehensive social media program including channel analysis, advertising, messaging development, program and operational management, reporting and performance evaluation. This program is designed for restaurant, food or beverage industry management and/or ownership who would like to learn more about social media management or build their own program.
