I have been a restaurant marketer for over 6 years now. And because I have spent a significant portion of that time working in the kitchen, I’ve become more aware of the many different levels of self-awareness.
Having worked in a restaurant industry, I’ve always been aware that people have different levels of self-awareness than they do. For example, I’ve spent time in a restaurant, so I can always guess what kind of self-awareness is in the restaurant. Or I can know what kind of self-awareness is in the food or the service. Or I can know what kind of self-awareness is in the bathroom or the kitchen.
Having worked in the restaurant industry, Ive always been aware of the different levels of self-awareness. Having spent time in a restaurant, I can only hope that I have become aware of what kind of self-awareness is in the restaurant. Or I can know what kind of self-awareness is in the shower or in the kitchen.
In order to be a successful restaurant marketing professional, you must be able to recognize your customers, be able to answer their questions, be able to make them happy, and be able to make them feel good in return.
This is something that we have been putting a lot of time and energy into recently. We have a lot of people talking to us about the restaurant marketing skills they need to have to be successful in the restaurant industry.
I know because I’ve been watching the videos for over a year now. They are so much fun and so informative. There is a lot of advice on the importance of having positive body language, how to talk through your emotions, how to make your customers feel comfortable, and how to make them feel valued and respected. What I particularly like is that they seem to have a lot of really good ideas for how to create that atmosphere of a restaurant and make them feel happy.
Most of the restaurants Ive been to are run by people who do not know each other. In some ways they are like a new startup, and in others they are like the startup of the restaurant industry. They are getting a chance to form their own little community.
The most successful restaurants these days are the ones that have created relationships with their customers. They have put themselves in the customer’s shoes and seen what the customer would like to see happen. Often this is “what you want them to do for you”. And in most cases this has been done by putting on a friendly face without actually having to do anything for them.
You would be wrong to think of restaurant marketing as a black hole of opportunity. There are plenty of opportunities out there for anyone as a restaurant manager or a restaurant chef. All you need to do is look around your current location. Look for a place that has a wide variety of food options and have them try some of the items to see what the customer would like to see.
It’s hard for me to imagine someone with a lot of money. But look at the list of restaurants that have customers who have no idea of what restaurants are. It would be nice if restaurants could have their own food distribution system, which is pretty much what I have been doing when I’m doing restaurant marketing. However, once I have a taste of this opportunity, I don’t know if I will see another great restaurant in my lifetime.
