We have been coming to the Philippines since 2008. Travelling all over the region and dining at many different types of establishments.
One thing that I found odd was that many of the restaurants did not have their own web presence. It was common, that I would search Google for “Italian Restaurant Eastwood” or “Sushi in Fort Bonifacio” only to find MunchPunch listings or similar services.
While MunchPunch is a fantastic website and drives lots of traffic to your restaurant, you still need your own website that you control.
In other instances, I have been sent the name of a restaurant for where a lunch of dinner is being held. I would then Google that restaurants name to find their address details so that I can add it to my schedule. More often that not, I’m getting this information from 3rd party websites that are NOT controlled by the restaurant itself. This is not a good way to ensure people looking for your business find it.
These days, websites are cost effective to setup and manage. There is no excuse for a restaurant to not have their own.
How do you get started?
1. Buy a domain name (RestaurantName.ph) GoDaddy is one of the cheapest places to do that.
3. Make sure your website has all of the information it needs. We made a handy infographic specifically on this topic, see below:
