'Not My Table' - How NOT to Run A Successful Restaurant (Or Any Service Business)

How do the skills associated with operating a successful restaurant compare to those required to run any successful service business?

Until recently, Roger Beaudoin operated a seasonal restaurant that rang up more than $1 million in revenues in just 4 months each year.  It's one reason why he is known as THE Restaurant Rock Star. 

On this week's Monday Morning Radio, Roger reveals 10 of the ineffective restaurant service traps that he avoids at all costs.  Importantly, most of his do's and don'ts apply not just to the restaurant industry, but to every successful service enterprise.

Roger is interviewed by Wizard Academy faculty member Dean Rotbart, and wealth management expert David Biondo. Rotbart and Biondo are co-hosts of Business Unconventional, the one-hour radio newsmagazine that aired weekly on News/Talk 710 KNUS AM in Denver.

You've Got 160 Characters to Score a Marketing Homerun.  Go!!

Jaymes Sorbel knows how to get the immediate attention of your customers and drive them to action: text message them.

Sorbel, founder of MeTesto Professional, says the 160 characters contained in well-executed text-message campaigns can generate a huge response.  A key reason?

Customers are so viscerally addicted to receiving and sending text messages that 80% of us text while watching TV and 44% of us take our smart phones to bed with us.

 

Sorbel details the dos and don'ts of effective text-message marketing on this week's Monday Morning Radio.

[Note: At several spots in this week's episode, the audio quality is briefly warped.  The poor audio passes very quickly.]
