Facebook Restaurant Menu Feaure
Facebook has some incredible tools for local businesses, especially restaurants. Among one of our favorites is the Facebook Restaurant Menu feature. The social network now allows restaurants to display their menus via SinglePlatform or PDF download.
How to Add Facebook Restaurant Menu to Your Page
These are the steps to add your restaurant menu to your Facebook page if you don’t have SinglePlatform:
- Click About on the left side of your Page
2. Below More Info, click Add Menu
3. Upload a photo or PDF file of your menu, or click Link to Website Menu to link to your website’s menu
Once your menu has finished uploading or you’ve added a link to your menu, click Confirm
Restaurants that currently work with SinglePlatform will have their menu automatically added to their restaurant’s Facebook page. This is a paid for service that can save you time if you constantly update your menu. If your menu does not change often, then you may not need to make an investment in that tool.
Facebook has some fantastic tools to help restaurant owners get more business. Some of these tools include:
In order to make sure that you get the maximum exposure for your restaurant’s Facebook page, it is very important that you post consistently and that you post engaging content. While this seems like quite a task, it can be made easy with a tool such as Socialdraft.
How Socialdraft Can Help Restaurants on Social Media
Social Media Scheduling:
With Socialdraft, you can schedule posts to your Facebook business page, your Twitter account, Instagram, Pinterest and LinkedIn. It’s a time saver because you don’t have to log in daily to each social media site to publish.
On top of this, at some tiers, you can set up different people with permissions. So, for example; you can give access to your beverage manager so they can schedule posts about the drinks at the restaurant. Your chef can also be given access to post photos of the food…and you can make it so that their posts require approval before they go out – so you have the final say in everything.
Save Time With Recurring Posts:
Recurring posts are awesome. Say that you have a happy hour special that happens every Thursday. Instead of creating a new post for each Thursday, simply create one recurring post to happen over and over again.
Keep an Eye on Your Restaurant’s Online Reputation
Use reputation monitoring tools such as Google Alerts to keep an eye about everything that is being said about your business. Then, take action.
Address the negative, and then engage & share the positive. If you do all this and use a social media management tool like Socialdraft, you’ll be on your way to social media success. If you are ready to take us for a spin, sign up for our risk-free trial.
