  1. The cafe is something that people love to spend time there, So its interior and menu should be something attractive. If everything is good, you want to market it then you can follow some tips below.
    Attract customers with the images.
    Remember, for any restaurant, cafe, meeting place, there is only one thing people seek first, that is its interior and public reviews. So make sure you click good images (maybe you need to hire some photographers for this) and post them on your site.
    Google My Business page is a must.
    These days people usually visit new places via google maps and your google my business page will definitely help you to reach your new customers. Also, good reviews, photos, and videos will definitely emphasize them to visit your cafe.
    Guest posting
    Guest posting is something when you post your blog/content on someone else’s space like on their website, videos, social media handles, etc. There are so many websites out there that allow people to post their content on their websites. As well as so many bloggers are there who can write about your blog and post that on different sites. Guest posting helps people to take decisions, and it is very influencial.
    Running Offers.
    People with constraints budgets always looks for offers so that they can save some money. This thing always helps the brands to reach more customers. Like in an eCommerce promotion, there will always be promotional codes to use to avail some discounts. But in your case, you can do this on some particular day basis like ‘Sunday Funday Offer’, where you can give some discounts on everything or something.
    For Example, A few years back, I visited Bikanervala in the morning time and bought a grilled sandwich, they charged me half of its regular price. I asked for the reason and they replied to me, sir, everything is half-priced at breakfast time. Usually, it was a breakfast offer. So similar thing you can do to your cafe to attract more customers.
    Running local ads.
    Ads are the thing that can expand your reach within your budget, so go with the online ad rather than printing the pamphlets, etc. Always target your local audience while creating online ad campaigns. And don’t forget to use ad extensions like Phone call/Get direction/Visit sites. Extensions can increase your ad quality.
    So these are the things you can use while promoting your cafe. Hope my answer helped you to clear your doubts.
    Thanks for reading.

  3. Coffee shops mostly get their customers from walk-ins and word-of-mouth. But if you have something unique about your shop – special coffee, amazing cakes, great music – then people might be willing to make the extra mile to come to your shop. There is a coffee shop in Berlin called The Barn, which falls into this category by way of their extremely fancy and unique assortment of coffee beans. We created a video for them which explains that pretty well:

    The owner Ralf is very charismatic, which made it easy and the video came out great. But I have to say, that they didn’t need our video to achieve success. Most of their success comes from word-of-mouth. They also do other things like offer coffee tasting sessions a couple of times a week, they also have barista classes and do some events on the weekends. But the important prerequisite is that they do have a very special product. I also have to say that some people like me love their coffee, but other don’t really like it because it is very different to what they are used to.

  4. I assume you’re not in Amsterdam, otherwise you would need little marketing.
    These are some strategies coffee is marketed in Italy. Still, they don’t need much convincing over here. Also, here the barman is the master of the coffee shop, sets the tone of the place, host the brewing show and has somehow a duty to entertain (if desired) and remember the customers preferences – often times you don’t really order coffe in Italy: you give a nod of agreement. So as usual, value your customers and they will advertise for you 🙂
    Besides that:
    Most small shops working during office hours offer a subscription model. Buy 10 and get 1 free, paid upfront. It’s a win/win and helps creating an habit.
    Offer a free coffee for trying a special/new blend, upsell home brewing version. Works best if you’re toasting or have special agreements.
    Offer special deals based on your clients daily routine (breakfast, coffee pause etc).
    Offer free coffee for a special event, upsell other articles. Difficult to achieve without scale: it has been applied on Italian highways during nighttime to convince people making a break. Many people also bough other overpriced items, or decided to eat something.
    Host artistic/literary events of local interest.
    Go the Illy way, and sell a blend and an artsy image. Illy changes their blend to match the same taste, sells coffee cups designed by contemporary artists and generally maintains a premium image.
    Edit: don’t forget coffee decoration techniques, and special kinds of coffee depending on season. Basically, everything that you can write outside your shop, is a service a bit more personal than your competition and will allow people talking about you goes (free coffee for recurring customers on their birthday fe, announces on the spot: they’ll tell friends).

  5. Marketing is all based on buyers behaviours. So you don’t waste money on things you “could” do, I suggest to first research who is your ideal customer. I’m a digital marketing expert with over 7 years experience. I’ve worked with local restaurants, cafes, professional services and online retailers. Understanding your customer is the first step to creating a marketing plan that will actually work! Do not spend money on marketing activities when you don’t have a strategy. If I was healing you market your coffee shop I would ask you questions like: how long have you been in business? Are you a new business? Why do you want to market your business? Are sales down or are you new or is there a new competitor in your area? What type of people come into your coffee shop? What else do you sell in your coffee shop? Where is your coffee shop and what else is around it? Analyse your environment internally and externally before coming up with marketing strategies that will be effective.
    Some very general advice: you need to have a website even if it’s just a placeholder. Get a Google business page. Ask for reviews. Start social media accounts. What social media platforms you use and what content you publish will be based on your market analysis. If you would like further assistance marketing your business I’d be happy to as I specialise in marketing local small businesses.

  6. Get listed with local directory sites.
    Make video review of your customer & promote them via social sites
    choose local keywords for your website & start linking with other sites.
    if you have no problem in investment, then you can run paid campaign only at initial stage( 1 or 2 month). not regularly. because people will not buy coffee from online.
    Thanks.

  7. Decide who are your targets ( ASL 🙂 .
    Try Facebook advertisement .
    Give out coupons for free trials / discounted trial / 1+1 free schemes for coffee on weekends for 3-4 weeks via Facebook .
    Then slowly stop these coupons for weekends and start for weekdays .
    Once you have enough customers to serve limit this coupon issuing for only dull days .

  13. Dear Rupal, the easiest way to run a cafe business is to run the Facebook Advertisement. It is the easiest way to run Facebook Ads.
    Always keep in mind that try to run Facebook Ads at a less price point at starting phase.
    Run your Ad at $5, $10 at the starting phase, and get some results then increase your budget and create a custom audience according to your audience.
    When you get your first 100 audiences then create a lookalike audience according to your audience and run Facebook Ad with that.

    You can get people excited about coming to your coffee shop by doing a few things. You may hold social media giveaways or a client appreciation event when you provide free coffee to the first 20 individuals who come in on a Saturday morning!

  16. The McDonald’s at my local mall gives away free coffee for a few days several times a year. They seem always to be busy. I guess it works.
    (I *buy* my coffee at a nearby Tim Horton’s. I like to pay my way everywhere.)

  17. Firstly, determine your target demographic ( e.g. 45–55 year old females who are in corporate , 65+ males & females retirees, etc. ) in your area.
    Have a social media marketing expert set up a campaign for your coffee shop page on Facebook to have engaging posts and posts on specials, etc promoted to show up in your target demographic’s newsfeed.
    Boom clientele increased!
    Now you have to keep them coming as a result of their customer experience.

  18. Remember Cafe business do not have more than 3 km as catchment radius for the customers to come so you need to figure out the area from where you can expect customers and accordingly so advertisements like having discount coupon code tie up with retail shops in the area
