BistroSMS is a text message promotions service designed for restaurants. We help restaurants build a customer contact database, deliver daily or weekly text message promotions to customers and track redemptions.
You are assigned a dedicated phone number and code. When customers text the code to this number they are added to your database. Signing up is that easy.
Most customers are willing to share their cell phone number if you give them an incentive. 'One Free drink' or 'One Free appetizer' or 'One Free dessert' are good examples of promotions that entice customers to sign up. BistroSMS's 'Signup Incentive' feature helps you manage the signup process.
With targeted text message promotions you can increase sales with very little effort. Most restaurants have a couple of slow days during the week. Just a few more orders each on such slow days can mean thousands of dollars in increased sales for the year.
