3 FREE Sites to Help You Improve Your Restaurant's Online Marketing

I feel as though a lot of restaurants have been more willing to leverage the power of social networking for marketing (i.e. the MySpace effect) than other types of businesses. For those of you who haven't yet embraced the idea or aren't satisfied with MySpace, I wanted to list three sites which can be very helpful in terms of both driving traffic to your website and also helping people find you:

1. CRAIGSLIST - It might seem obvious, but many people don't use it. If you have a special to announce or want to introduce yourself to a local online community, create a free post. Be sure to include a link to your site if you have one.

2. MYLOCALSPOT - Like a MySpace for small businesses and professionals, the site is very easy to use and lets you create a free profile. Include pictures, a description of your restaurant, a link to your site, a menu and any current specials you're running. Edit your profile at any time so you can keep patients up-to-date with what's happening with your practice.

3. BLOGGER - Easy to use site that let's you create a free blog about your restaurant. Use it to keep current customers up to date with the latest about your restaurant. Be sure to link to your site!
