I like eating, especially burgers. I like telling people about it, especially through social media. In fact, in certain circles I am known as “The World’s Most Socially Connected Burger Blogger.” For some people, the world of social media is pretty intimidating. It can be difficult to figure out the best way to connect and communicate with customers across the numerous social networks tools out there. My goal is to demystify the social networks and help restauranteurs learn how to use these platforms to foster brand awareness, online engagement and better customer service. Allow me to break it down:
My passions for food and social media also inspired me to create The Rev Meter for Social Community, a social community meter for assessing how optimized a bar or restaurant is with social networking. “The Rev Meter” is a points system to assess how well a business is using what I consider to be the 10 most important social networks. My goal here is to educate and assist already great businesses more effectively use these tools.
[Insert Restaurant Name] scores a [number] on The Rev Meter for Social Community
4 points or less: You’ve missed the 5 basics and are less than optimized.
5 points: You’ve covered the basics, which is better than most but far from optimized.
6 to 9 points: You’re doing better than most and on your way to becoming a well respected social community whiz.
10 points: Congrats on a perfect score!
Thanks to Three Ships Media for the inspiration. They did this with a very, very, very funny yet completely correct instagram post about donuts. As per their website: “Three Ships Media is a digital agency that serves ambitious, innovative clients who view online marketing as a critical element of their customer acquisition strategy.” Most of my post was borrowed from theirs with a couple additions. Hilarious.
