Social Media

Social Media took me some time to understand.  I for the longest time never understood why I needed a website, or a fanpage or even twitter....Now after teaching myself about the internet based business, I have learned the relationship between myself and my guest.  I taught myself how to build a website, which I am proud of.  I realize with almost 30,000 hits in a year it is a mistake for a business not to take this whole internet, social Media serious. Certainly with such sites as the FORBIDDEN YELP...(I do not  go here because some things are just ridiculous.) I needed to establish my social media footprint so I could drive potential guest and return guest to the information I wanted them to see, such as  specials, news releases, Tv spots and much more. 
I know now my guest want to relate to me, they are supportive and most of those who have been with me since I started feel a better connection and share with me what they like or dislike...I can enter into  one on one communication with each person, something I may not have been allowed without this Social Media outlet.  Depending on which site I use I can directly see who, where, what and when they are looking....I learn what they like to see and try to manage that level of communication between us. 
Social Media is a positive and I have to keep up on it to drive the sites I want seen when you search me to the top of the search list.  So follow me on Facebook Fanpage, Twitter or my web page :)  I love the exchange because really it all seems to be positive or constructive :) Reality is that is how life should be.

Hi Tina, I really like the sincerity and transparency of your writing, I can really empathize with where you were at while writing this post. Social media is definitely a challenge and time permitting can be a great benefit to the growth of your business, even YELP ; )

We wanted too inform you that this afternoon we attempted to call in a to-go order and we were placed on hold for 23 minutes. This has occurred to us multiple times and we thought someone in management would want to be informed. Thank you G
