Tip: Some restaurants are using fake (faux) artificial plants as decor for their food/dish photography but this may send a message to customers that you may also be using fake or artificial ingredients in the preparation of your dishes. Keep your food photography natural and real. If you include a flower or a plant in your Instagram photography, then show real natural ones.

“If lucky, Instagram is showing your food posts to 2% of your hard-earned followers. Invest in proven marketing strategies and activities that drive real sales in channels and assets you fully own”

Mau – senior digital marketing specialist at eDigital

Restaurant managers and food business owners who are not offering junk food or soft drinks in their venues are contributing to making their clients and local communities healthier.  Offering scientific-based information about the food you sell to your customers not only shows respect but will also delight customers who take pride in looking after themselves.

These actions will increase repeat visitation and customer loyalty. They will also decrease customer churn rate (Number of customers who visited you once and never come back).

When posting on social media, add hashtags that promote your commitment to healthy food such as:

#nonprocessed
#zerosugar
#nofat
#nosalt
#nopreservatives
#madelocally
#freshproduce
#nomsg
#noartificialflavours
#noartificialcolours

Tip: Add hashtags to your Instagram Stories to have chances of being displayed on the Instagram explore page using the hashtag sticker (you can only add one hashtag) or use the text tool (you can add up to 10 hashtags), you can even hide them by placing a sticker on top of them or use the colour tool to make the hashtags invisible but still findable.
