The Importance of the Online Menu

What’s the first thing you do when deciding where to go out and eat? How about when traveling? If searching online crossed your mind, you wouldn’t be alone. Many consumers head straight online to find restaurants, check reviews and peek at the menu. Avid foodies even decide whether or not to check out a new place based solely on if they can see the menu beforehand or not. Do you have a menu online? If not, you may want to consider adding one to Facebook. Considering that 78 percent of online local mobile searches result in offline purchases, this is a major benefit to restaurants looking for new business. Facebook has made it easy to add your menu to your page, just follow these simple instructions!
