We Develop Restaurant Websites
We develop Best Websites In Sonipat
Did you know that 90% of
customers research restaurants online before eating out? This means, you as a
restaurant owner, need a website, and a functional one. Sites such as HostGator
can make this process easier for you by hosting your website and providing
website templates. You want to project the right image to get people to walk
through the door, and your location plays a big part in achieving that. Having
a restaurant website is the same; it’s an extension of your restaurant. It
directs customers to you, and lets them find out more about you, and you get to
control the content – something you can’t do on review sites.
Benefits of Having a
To generate awareness, exposure and extend your brand. A website lets people know who you are and
gives potential customers a feel for your restaurant, menu and atmosphere. Your
site does not need to be fancy, and it does not have to be expensive but it
needs to be informative, interesting and reflective to your restaurant.
Remember, first impressions count. A smart, simple design will help you convey
the professional and appealing image you want.
To provide basic information. Your ‘virtual storefront’ will answer visitors’ questions such as
hours of operation, payment methods, and location. Avoid playing hide and seek;
put your contact information on every single page of the site; give your
customers what they came for and make it easy for them to reach out.
To promote products/services and events/promotions.
Does your restaurant offer products or catering services in addition to your
daily menu? Your potential customers don’t know this! Not only can you launch
this information on the website, you can also provide your guests with a
mailing list option so they can stay up-to-date with important announcements.
Highlight why you are special.
Show your restaurant in the best possible light. Photos of happy diners, filled
tables and mouthwatering dishes is more enticing than a black and white half
page ad in the paper. Hire a good photographer to make pictures of actual meals
you cook, get those pictures on your website and you’ve got an outstanding web
presence that informs, entertains and entices at the same time.
To increase business.
A presence on the Web gives your business great ‘online visibility’,
which in turn enables customers to find you. A website allows you to share your
menu, showcase your specialties and services, and set your food and eatery
apart from the others. Your restaurant is a local business so it helps a lot to
register it on Google Place and local directories such as LocalServe.

While there are general advantages for every business in creating a
website, there are a number of specific advantages that can benefit a
restaurant. Here are eight reasons your restaurant should have a website:
1. Low Advertising Costs
Print ads and commercials are expensive. With a website you can
display an endless amount of print information at a fraction of the cost.
Information is available 24/7 to anyone with internet access and you can easily
update out-dated information on your website whereas the cost of re-printing
flyers is far greater.
2. You Can Give Key Information
On Your Location, Menu, Opening Times and Special Offers
A website gives you a platform to provide the basic information
your customers may need to know about your restaurant including hours of
operation, directions, payment methods and more. By answering these basic
questions, you can decrease the amount of time your managers and staff need to
spend answering phone calls. You can also keep customers aware of any promotions,
such as pre-theatre menus, lunch deals or Christmas offers.
3. You Can Include Customer
You can include customer testimonials on your website or if your
restaurant has been lucky enough to be featured in a publication such as a review
by a restaurant critic in a newspaper you can link to this from your site. This
will help to build your restaurant’s credibility.
A website may also help your chances of being reviewed by
bloggers as they have a resource to gain information about your history to add
to their article.
4. Increases Awareness of Your
When people are looking for information the first place they
will look is on the web. It is important that if someone is looking for your
business they can find the information that they need quickly so they are less
likely to become disgruntled and consider your competitor(s).
5. You Can Improve Search
By investing time into search engine optimisation (SEO) you can
help your business show for related search terms. For example if your website
shows for someone searching ‘late night café’, ‘Italian restaurant’ or ‘family
friendly pub’ you will gain more exposure and hopefully more customers.
6. You Can Build a Solid Brand
A website will help your business to build a professional image.
Particularly if you are just starting out, a website is a great method for
helping customers become acquainted with your brand. With the correct marketing
it may even convince customers to seek you out and try for themselves. High
quality images will help entice customers to visit.
7. Differentiate Your Business
from the Competition
If all of your competitors have an online presence it only makes
sense that you should too. Many competing restaurants may already use a website
to promote themselves; stealing your business. A well-presented easy to use
website will help you highlight what you do well and may persuade customers to
pick you over alternatives. Lack of a website may also suggest that you are no
willing to invest into your business
8. Book Online Features
You can easily add an online booking link or app to your website
giving your customers a quick way to make reservations on the go.
9. A Way to Promote Other
A website gives you a channel to promote your other services.
Offer catering or private events? Creating pages for these and using SEO (see
point 5!) can generate more business.
10. Sell Gift Cards
With a website which enables online selling you could even sell
gift vouchers online. This can help drive more business, particularly around
Christmas or other events where people are looking for gifts.
