Today, anyone can go online anytime, anywhere, and communicate on social networks and share pictures and videos with others. Social media, and Instagram in particular, is also playing an increasingly important role in gastronomy. Adapt to this change and become more visible to your customers on social networks with your digital mPocket menu.

Stand out from the crowd

Of course, there are already many different types and forms of menus, whether in book form, on slate boards or on clipboards. However, most are less creative or interactive for their guests. Too much text can make your guests feel quickly slain by their dishes and less keen to experiment. The first step to more interactivity is a digital menu. Here you can visually address your guests with appetizing pictures and videos of your food and drinks. With a social menu, you can go one step further towards digitization by connecting your digital menu directly to your social media profiles.

Take advantage of a social menu

Society is becoming more and more “social”. Communication and interaction in social networks such as Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and Co. actually only takes place in the form of pictures and videos. People share and like videos and pictures of their food, vacations and other experiences online. With a social menu, visiting your restaurant becomes a real experience for your guests and their followers online. With a social menu your digital menu is directly linked to the social media platforms, your customers can directly share their restaurant stay, food or a simple selfie in your restaurant with just one click, and your gastronomy is directly linked. This in turn helps you gain new customers, because more and more people are looking online on social networks what’s there, whether it’s visually appealing and whether their friends or followers have already followed the restaurant or been there.

Create your social menu with mPocket

With the digital mPocket menu, you can easily add pictures and videos to your food and drinks to visually appeal to your guests’ palates. You can also link the menu to your existing social networks to establish a direct connection between social media and your menu. This makes it easier for your guests to take pictures and videos in your local restaurant and share them with friends and followers on the social networks you want. In addition, you can encourage your guests to submit an online review about their visit directly in the map. A good presence on social networks, as well as many online customer reviews significantly improve the visibility of your gastronomy online, which in turn can help you to have more customers in your restaurant.

By January 2020, around 3.8 billion people worldwide are already using social media platforms every month.  This clearly shows how important social networks play in people’s lives today and should therefore also play in your marketing strategy. Because as you can see, your customers are very present on FacebookInstagramSnapchat and Co. and therefore you should convince them of your gastronomy with the help of social reviews and win over them as new customers.

The restaurant search has changed

In the past, most of the guests simply went to the city and looked around which restaurants there are at all, which fit the taste and the current food presentation. Most of the time, they have chosen a restaurant directly on site. Nowadays, everyone is always and everywhere on all mobile devices online and connected to each other, so the search for gastronomy has changed for most people. Customers only find out what is on offer on Google, Google Maps, on review portals or on social networks.  Especially with its high number of users, social networks are becoming more and more popular as information and recommendation platforms.

Social Review for Gastronomy Search

On social media, everyone is part of a community of friends, followers and people who have similar interests to yourself. By sharing interests, photos, and videos with the community, you’ll build a trust base sooner or later. One trusts the product, travel, hotel and restaurant recommendations of these people and is influenced by their recommendations. This is where social reviews come in. Social reviews are customer reviews on social media. However, it is not directly a star rating or the typical online customer rating of Google, but rather the marking and sharing of certain places and companies or restaurants. But the impact of company profiles is also seen as a positive assessment for others. You can imagine it this way: A potential customer decides to go out for dinner in the evening. He looks at the posts and stories on social media to see if the people he follows and his friends have already followed the restaurant or even shared the visit. If this is the case, the prospective customer is more likely to choose this restaurant. A good presence on social networks can help you to be more visible here to be found by customers and their followers and to win them over as customers.

In the last few days there was an exciting meeting between Markus Demirci  – founder of  mPocket  and  Christian  Hamerle. Before that, Christian  Hamerle  saw himself as the “biggest skeptic of digitization in the food service industry”, now he is not only an absolute supporter of this change, but also known from the Berlin Data Kitchen. Born in Vienna with many years of experience in star gastronomy, the Viennese developed the restaurant concept for Life 4.0, with pre-ordering and pre-payment, thus putting customer comfort in the foreground – he almost makes slow food. In addition, Christian  Hamerle is not only known from the Data Kitchen, but he currently also supports  perfect  day founder Hans Reitz, the new business partner of  mPocket.

More sustainability for your restaurant

Perfect day – your forest coffee in Wiesbaden, attaches great importance to sustainability, hospitality and local anchorage, their food and drinks are organic, vegetarian and regional. The interior of the coffee also consists of recycled materials and renewable raw materials. The coffee in Wiesbaden is very reminiscent of an art exhibition with life stories by Hans Reitz. The heart of perfect day is the coffee from our own farms in southern India, where they place great emphasis on sustainability and sell their excellent coffee only in biodegradable to-go cups. Thanks to its new digital mPocket menu, quick changes can be adjusted directly online in the map and no longer require unnecessary reprints, so perfect day gets another big improvement from an ecological and financial point of view. Together, we are committed to reducing waste and more sustainability in the catering industry.

Digital restaurant experience for your guests

According to Christian Hamerle, the increasing contactless procedure in the catering industry, together with the digital transformation, is “the greatest opportunity to touch guests more than ever before”. This view was also the decisive reason why Mr. Hamerle and Mr. Reitz from perfect day wanted to meet markus Demirci and later opted for the digital mPocket menu. With mPocket you create a creative, visual experience – a story – for your guests. With the emotional presentation of your meals in picture and video form, you convince your guests of your dishes and motivate you to try something new again and again. Our integration of social networks not only allows you to connect directly with your guests online, but also motivates them to share and link your dishes online. This creates new relationships with your guests and improves your reach and awareness online and offline.

More transparency for your guests

In his interview for the PResstaurant,  Christian Hamerle makes it clear how important it is that digital technology such as blockchain technologies are used in the catering industry to make information, such as the origin and quality of the ingredients, transparent, especially for the guests. At perfect day, this desire for transparency, about the origin of your products, is already supported for the guests. With our mPocket menu, everything can be simplified, as products, ingredients, the origin and history of the dishes can be told and visually presented.

We at mPocket are looking forward to the further exciting collaboration with Christian Hamerle and Hans Reitz from perfect day.
