The occasional patron is always welcome, but you need regulars—advocates who champion your brew and introduce others to what you have to offer. When they know you have something new they’ll gladly pull up a stool.
Your own customized marketing app—powered by Boelter Blue—puts you right where they’re looking. Push today’s happy hour special into the palm of their hands. Offer a limited time deal to help fill seats during non-peak hours. Or plug a seasonal brew you won’t find anywhere else.
A staggering 70 percent of consumers actually prefer that bars communicate with them via push notifications to their mobile device. When they’re looking for a place to unwind, Boelter Blue helps keep your brews and spirits top of mind, so you stay on top of business.
Here are six ways we can help.
Give customers a reason to Choose Your Bar
Create a following of both new and repeat customers with perfectly timed offers, seasonal drink deals, photos of your newest cocktail creations or tap beers sent right to your customers phone. Then utilize word of mouth, as customers easily share your timely offers & specials with family and friends.
Deal Out Digital Rewards
Ditch expensive, confusing points programs and paper punch cards and give drinkers an easy to use reward program right in their phones that never gets stale. Boelter Blue designs the perfect program for your bar with complete control and visibility into who your customers are and how to reward them.
Create More Reasons to Drink (and eat)
The bar business is competitive! Use mobile app technology and smart automation to bring customers back as many times as you want. Launch new initiatives in minutes, automatically send thank you’s for stopping in, offers for being a regular, and reminders to stop back in when they’re thirsty. Your customers phone becomes a one-stop shop where they can access menus, events, offers, loyalty and specials. And, you can reach them at any time.
Drive Business During Non-Peak Hours
Always know how to reach your best customers and give them great reasons to visit you when the bar stools aren’t filled to capacity. Use your app to easily create and send limited time offers, for a boost in late night business, afternoon happy hour or attendance to special events.
Bring people in for Big Events
Imagine always knowing who your best customers are and utilizing technology where you can communicate back and forth with the touch of a button—everyone will know what’s happening at your bar. Give your best customers VIP treatment during the big game or a reduced cover for the next live show, and track it all through your mobile app.
Attract and Capture New Drinkers Digitally
Launch campaigns that give new customers a compelling reason to try your bar. Claim to have the best Old Fashioned in town? Offer a free one to new customers, post it on your social channels and website, then track the success as new customers come in with your app and try your legendary cocktail. Then sit back and watch the combo of your great service and the app technology turn them from a first-time guest into a regular.
