There is no escaping the amount of work that goes into setting up and then running a restaurant. Before you even begin to dream about running a successful establishment, you must have an appropriate location, welcoming interior, friendly service and a range of food and drink in place. Even when all of this is set in stone, work never stops in the service industry; therefore you can understand why restaurants may have limited time for marketing.
Due to the restricted time to deliver marketing, restaurants may often depend on Facebook reviews or TripAdvisor comments to show their eatery in a positive light. This can be a very useful tool, as word of mouth marketing is an honest reflection from customers and this is of particular interest to potential customers.
That being said, these kinds of reviews can be unreliable and a negative criticism can be particularly exaggerated if the customer is annoyed. Therefore, it is a great risk to leave your reputation in the hands of the public and if you are stretched on time (as restaurants usually are), you need to find an alternative method.
