Pro Tip #2 Content Curation & Planning
Be strategic about content curation & planning. Authenticity is KEY. It's important to come across genuine and not as a hard sell (don't we wish that was true of salespeople in every industry?).
The best way to do this is by alternating your posts:
Here's a quick example of how we post for our clients restaurant page @watermarcrestaurant located in Laguna Beach, California:
Post 9: Top selling dish on the menu
Post 8: Repost from local foodie, kept caption about their delicious visit.
Post 7: Repost from local blogger, removed caption because it was unrelated to the restaurant visit and replaced it with something relative to the image.
Post 6: National Old Fashion Day post to recognize special holiday and tap into a popular hashtag that day: #NationalOldFashionDay
Post 5: They had a week of cold weather in their location, so we added in a post reminding their audience of cold-weather food options.
Post 4: Happy Hour reminder post with an image of one of their most popular cocktails.
Post 3: Announcing a new menu item that they just got for the season.
Post 2: Appetizer photo with a caption about having a date night with your loved one.
Post 1: A breakfast image that reminds the audience they serve brunch on weekends only. They also have the time of brunch located in their bio.
