TWITTER

You can use Twitter to promote your restaurant in a number of ways, and to gain commission free reservations. For example: to herald new menus, offers, or advertise special events. Your diners can also now reserve into your restaurant through Twitter. Just follow the few easy steps to set this up.

  1. Whilst in the ResDiary platform, select PROMOTE then MICROSITE
  2. Copy your unique ResDiary Microsite URL
  3. Paste the full URL link into http://goo.gl/ (This will shorten the URL)
  4. Click shorten URL. The Shortened URL will appear with the option to copy. Select ‘Copy’.
  5. Paste the link into your Tweet. The link can then be sent to your followers allowing them to retweet your message to make a reservation. We recommend posting this link every time you tweet a message to your followers to encourage increased online reservations directly from Twitter.
