How To Create A Birthday Club
STEP 1: CREATE THE COMPELLING OFFER
It’s important to make sure you have a compelling offer to incentivize your customers to dine with you versus your competitor. Typical offers involve providing complimentary meals or desserts to the birthday patron if they are accompanied with a paying guest.
STEP 2: Design the Marketing Collateral
You will need to create marketing material to showcase your birthday club to existing guest encouraging them to sign up for your club. This can be postcards you send in the mail, business sized cards you provide to guest upon paying for a meal, or table tents with a call to action to join your birthday club.
STEP 3: AUTORESPONDER & WEBSITE
on the marketing collateral, you will need a destination for the guest to visit to sign up for your birthday club. This can be a simple one page website that is connected to a email auto responder that captures the customer’s information and automatically sends them their birthday offer upon the time of their birthday.
STEP 4: SIGN UP FORM
you can also take more of a manual approach and provide sign up cards that capture all your customers pertinent information, in which you would then enter this information into a spreadsheet or a database program such as excel or google spreadsheets
NEGATIVES OF HAVING A BIRTHDAY CLUB
Having a internal birthday club can have tremendous benefits for your business. However, its an additional responsibility that needs constant attention and management. Unless you have an appointed staff to properly manage your birthday club, routinely enter new sign ups into your database, track the responsiveness of your marketing, and keep your marketing collateral updated (which can get expensive), then having a birthday club can go south quick. For this reason is why we recommend you create a EXTERNAL birthday club compared to a INTERNAL birthday club.
The Most Effective Way To Drive New Customers Into Your Restaurant
In addition to the tedious work it requires to run an INTERNAL birthday club, a common concern we hear from restaurant owners is the need to attract NEW customers and not just provide discounts and specials to existing customers who may already have intentions on celebrating their birthday with their restaurant without having to provide a discount.
Recently, we’ve been having great success with a new beta program we created called Birthday Marketing. Our program helps local restaurants get more new customers on an ongoing basis. Our system allows us to geographically target thousands of people on a daily basis whose birthday is in the next 7 days within a 10 mile radius of your restaurant! We then send these customers to your restaurant to celebrate their special day.
Since we are confident in our approach, we practice exclusivity. Meaning, we only work with two restaurants per geographic region to maintain the effectiveness of our program.
