Christmas Party Venue Marketing for Restaurant Owners

Christmas meals are a highlight of the working year, when employees and their partners can get together to celebrate all the successes of the year in an informal setting. They are a great for opportunity for team building and a possible tax-break that can raise employee moral.

As a restaurant owner, Christmas is a time of the year where you can fill your restaurant and maximise your profits. You also have the opportunity to make a good first impression to many new customers who will be visiting your restaurant for the first time.

Why not use the Email Marketing Robot to get the word out about your restaurant to local business owners now, while they are starting to think about choosing the right Christmas party venue for their staff this year.

You can use our list of business categories, together with a list of local place names, and the Email Marketing Robot will automatically find local businesses, look up their contact email address (so no database of email addresses is requried), and email out your marketing message on complete auto-pilot.

Once the Christmas period is over you can continue to use the software to find new businesses, and let them know about any special offers that you are running at the time.

There is no minimum contract period, so you are free to use the software from as little as one month if you wish. You can always re-subscribe again at any time.

BNI Business Categories/Professions List for Marketing Networking Events

BNI CategoriesInvite new visitors to your business networking events continuously with the Email Marketing Robot software!

Most business networkers know that visitors are the life-blood of business networking groups.

Most business networking organisers and members want to invite visitors to their meetings, but don’t have the time to contact enough people each week to result in significant numbers of quality visitors.

Lack of visitors results in stagnation, and good members can end up leaving as a result. Thankfully there is a proven system, five years in development and testing, that is perfect for inviting visitors to business networking events – and best of all, it works on complete auto-pilot!

Imagine what a difference it would make to have an extra 5, 10, or even 15 additional business owners attending your next meeting.

Now You Can Fill Your Next Meeting With Quality Local Business Owners!

Simply select from the follow list the business categories that are missing from your own business networking group, then paste the list into the software (click here for free download).

Provide the geographic areas you want to target (such as nearby towns and cities to your meeting location).

You will want to consider all the places that people can travel from in under 30 minutes from your venue, at that particular time of day when you meet. If that’s early in the morning people can travel from a greater distance.
Use our proven visitor networking event invitation to get the maximum number of visitors, and always invite two weeks ahead – even if you meet weekly, as we have found this is the optimum amount of notice to give busy business owners.

Test Drive This Multi-Award-Winning Visitor Inviting System!

Award for bringing the most visitors in BNIThe invitation has been optimised for maximum attendance over the past six years by our software developer at BNI (Business Network International) meetings, and won awards for the number of visitors he brought along – including the prestigious “Gold Club Member” award for most visitors who subsequently became members.

Using this approach of automated inviting of local business owners to your event, you can easily achieve personal visitor numbers of 5 to 15 visitors by inviting visitors to come to your meeting in two weeks time.

Actual numbers will vary from person to person, as there are many factors that determine whether or not a visitor will turn up on the day – including the enthusiasm of the person they are being invited by, the time of meeting, day of week, location, etc.
