Communicating with customers

The great part about today’s technology is the communication aspect as a small business or startup is the privilege of social media, email and phone notification you can connect with your customers.

For example on September 14 spectrum had several outages in the northeast granted in some areas outages where caused by Hurricane Florence however in New York weather wasn’t an issue.

However they decided to address everyone individually rather then as a whole this might have been a strategic move on their part, although I believe rather then your customers having to find you for information it’s better as a business to reach out to your consumers it saves time and money.

Thanks to features like social media outlets and notifications on your electronic devices you can seek your customers to inform them of any issues.

that’s all I have if you want to sign up for Uber or postmates and try Instacart as soon as I can get on I’ll do a review check out my other job app reviews support me on Amazon or PayPal.

    24 hours to hell and back Brownstone bistro

    In episode three of 24 hours to hell and back we follow a Cajun restaurant in the heart of Los Angeles, the owner Clive jackson who is broken, a man who’s dedicated not just to his work but to his community and family.

    His desire to save at risk youth After his only son was robbed of his life while he was waiting for a bus the man held his son in his arms and blamed himself.

    He wasn’t only about to lose his business but his family and his relationship with his wife and daughter this place needed saving.

    Let’s get down to some of the issues

    Big deals

    1. Cleanliness
    2. Guest first
    3. Respect
    4. Outdated system
    5. Temperature control
    6. Health standards
    7. Lack of training

    Subtle issues

    1. Employees on their cellphone while on duty

    I am more concerned with guest interaction then employees being on their cell phones

    As it Gordon Ramsay sat down the first thing he noticed was No one greeting customers at the front door, staff openly on their cellphone and absolutely no engaging with the customers, they failed to bring out all the food at once and then you have the managers cold demeanor

    The wings were cold, they served processed cheese and The presentation of the food was horrendous while the inside the kitchen was a whole different story.

    As discussed in several of my blogs guests are a priority hence guest first remember guest service

    • Greet
    • Usher
    • Engage
    • Smile
    • Thank

    S mile

    E ye contact

    R espect

    V alue the time

    I nitiate guest contact

    C reate service solutions

    E nd with a thank you

    I am all for employees expelling energy while it’s slow so as long as its in a productive manner.

    Examples every service job I’ve had weather it was

    1. Alcatraz
    2. Hornblower
    3. American outlet
    4. AMC
    5. Toys R Us
    6. Mars2112

    I spent time engaging current and potential customers and guest. I try to entertain the guests waiting online those were some of the best moments.

    You can also find other examples at Jekyll and Hyde club a theme restaurant in New York City where waiters and characters engaged in song and dance.

    So if you’re the waitstaff and everything that needs to be done is already done be creative and engage guests

    Cell phone usage

    Do not use your Cellphone in public unless you are reaching out to potential customers if it’s an emergency go to a private location like the bathroom or the break room same as if your eating or smoking

    Temperature control

    Check the temperature inside freezer if you can’t see your breath or you can still feel your face it’s not that cold enough and you need to check the number on the panel.

    With Cooked meat it’s important that you check the temperature do not under cook or over cook food parasites, germs and bacteria are attracted to certain temperatures make sure you read the guide lines.

    First in first out When in doubt throw it out

    Very important make sure everything is dated where you can see it, do not serve food that’s expired and before you serve food if it’s not something you would give to your family let alone your pet don’t serve it when in doubt throw it out.

    The kitchen

    Be sure to clean everything before you leave throw out the grease, clean out the vents and trays this could mean the difference between life and death a paycheck or law suit

    Passion over paycheck

    If you were working and you are not going to give it your best or show your interest for the job then leave.

    Pos systems

    It is the 20th century we are passed the era of writing by hand you have companies like toast, Presto and touch bistros

    Renovate, Revamp and renew

    Change the decor, create a new menu and renew your image. Remember Community is important, you’re not in it alone, get rid of dead weight and work with a team (team work makes the dream work)

    Lastly take care of yourself and your employees get rid of dead weight

    Niche marketing

    if you have a business the best ways to advertise are

    1. Meet ups this is actually great way to get business for restaurants, rental spaces and products you can find or start a group with in your niche
    2. Facebook groups and Twitter hashtag’s Twitter hashtag is as hard as posting on Facebook or Instagram however if done right you can really get a lot of traffic one of the ways is join the Facebook group relevant to your niche,
    3. Build a blog or vlog or have someone who had a blog for YouTube channel to promote your business for example You probably seen a channel I promote in return she promotes my blog.
    4. What’s trending: Another thing you can do is try to find whatever and find a way to incorporate that into your ad an example of that would be yesterday was chicken wings day many businesses used that hashtag to advertise their businesses it was also the roast of Bruce Willis So a perfect ad for that would be “let them Roast Bruce Willis we’ll fry the wings” this could’ve been done by any restaurants like midnight express or Paladar Brazilian barbecue
    5. Video marketing like #inmyfeelingschallange is a great way to get the attention of the viewer

    https://youtu.be/Pq2zurhCXf8h

    Grab their attention and strike their curiosity with videos, photos and post

    For more information on Niche marketing you can check out this e-book Finding niches made easy or goto Amazon and check out Dosh the free rebate app that pays you to shop

    Are you purchase any of your products that I have listed above you’ll get a month of free advertising with a value of $1500.00

    Gordon Ramsay’s to hell and back episode review

    In this very first emotional premiere of Gordon Ramsay’s to hell and back we see the transformation of Bella Gianna’s a restaurant in Congers, New York and deal with important issues that strike small business owners like immediately spoilers ahead let’s dive into it. Now the first thing I noticed was the owner Vinni who was suffering from A severe state of depression after the loss of his brother in law and the declined of his business. He Felt like he failed his parents who were the ones keeping the restaurant afloat, His level of anguish and resentment showed in the way he treated customers, his employees and his family, The chef had ultimately given up due to stress brought on by Vinni. The Decour was old and the kitchen was not up to code The restaurant had gone through hell with the help of Gordon Ramsay,The family, staff and crew a simplified menu, revamp, rebranding and renovation of the restaurant he managed to turn it around in just 24 hours while working together with ultimately it was up to Vinni To maintain this new style. Now I want point out a couple things.

    1. It is just as important for an employee to maintain order as it is for the employer. Make sure that you maintain your space and disregard orders deemed impulsive or illogical continue to follow food and safety rules
    2. As an employee of a small business understand that you are not just an employee but a partner and member of the family and to treat it as such even if that means tough love don’t just complain but maintain.
    3. Take initiative to improve company standards bringing your own style and flavor and make that difference.
    4. As an Owner listen to the employees and your customers change what needs to be changed and if you are past the point of no return and are bleeding money And can’t get Gordon Ramsay or celebrity to help you I urge you to set up a crowdfunding campaign and offer incentives to those who partner with you.
    5. revamp And rebrand your restaurant invite members of the community as well as influencers that will help you along your journey
    6. After you have revamped, Rebrand and renovate Use social media and sites like meet up’s to invite more customers to dine at your restaurant
    7. always remember you’re never alone whether you’re in business or in life so talk to someone about your struggle. Everyone fails in life but life is as long as you keep it the opportunity to rise above failure is nearby so don’t give up.

    That’s what I learned from the first episode Let me know what you guys think of the episode and join me next time also if your A small business owner, student, I do blog on business and education as always don’t forget to check out my streamers the week

    Escape from the bay

    It is extremely expensive in cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco New York and Chicago. California residents have had to go through extreme lengths Just to pay the rent from living under the stairs, having multiple roommates or RV living. If the rental market isn’t regulated due to unaffordablity then we can end up in another housing bubble resulting in a crash, or people dying as a result of over crowding that’s a serious problem. People are already planning to move away from California to places like Washington, Oregon, Texas and Florida. The average employee is now shelling out more than 30% of their household income forcing them to work three jobs at a time in addition to having makeshift rooms which results fire and health hazards, living further away from their job which results in lateness, stressed induced illness, and health issues such as diabetes, heart disease and death.

    rental scams are popping up every day people are posting daily Craigslist rentals or commuter beds and companies like AirBNB only encourages landlords to do the same. The best thing to do is to prevent price gouging is to regulate the rental market to ensure landlords are charging a fair amount for rent by giving tax incentive to landlords and business who work together. In conclusion There’s no reason for anyone to open a gofundme account to pay the bills

    Masterpiece cake shop

    Today the Supreme Court ruled in favor of masterpiece cake shop owners given them religious freedom to not make a cake for a gay Here are a couple of suggestions

    1. If you’re proud of your principles can you should be proud enough to have a scarlet letter on your door or website stating you do not sell gay wedding cakes because it goes against your religious ideology or at least put your religious affiliation in the title of your bakery
    2. Recommend customers to a secular bakery This way at the same time you’re at least working together with the community and helping other businesses that could use The publicity and money.
    3. If you’re getting married congratulations be sure to call every cake shop or at least post it on Twitter or Facebook to get recommendations for local bakeries

    Praxis

    If you guys have read my blog you know that I am for apprenticeships versus jobs a job is an acronym for Just Over broke everybody needs work but I the same time if you’re in school it’s best to get a job that’s going to give you value where you can learn hands-on and work in the field in which you were studying which leads me to this apprenticeship. Praxis is a company that places the students or potential students in apprenticeships at start up companies without attending college first.

    Praxis is only one solution among others as I said previously if you’re studying medicine work in a hospital or work as a home health aide while you go to college if you’re studying criminal justice you can work for security companies law firm’s work for a bounty Hunter whatever you do you want to make sure it matches what you’re studying So this way you’re learning more as you go along. Jobs are meant to provide not just monetary gain but it’s supposed to set you up for the future so you can build up your skill and value also for those of you were working on McDonald’s fast food restaurants movie theaters etc. etc. places like McDonald’s and target has tuition programs that you can take advantage of instead of drowning in student loans don’t get stuck Nor don’t be content with where you are if you’re interested in making money for the summer or looking for alternative ways of making money here are couple links to that as well.

    Wonolo App review

    As summer approaches there is great opportunity to find some extra cash I’m gonna be discussing which apps you should definitely download if you’re looking for extra work for the summertime. First on my list is going to be wonolo. Currently if you live in New York City The jobs that you see are mostly general warehouse style jobs, events and delivery jobs. if you can make it to New Jersey there’s more jobs available out there. keep in mind since June is soon arriving there are going to be more jobs available and there is more of a potential for a possible permanent position in addition there’s a lot of incentives such as referral, work bonuses and a discount program. It’s a good app to download if you’re looking for extra income but before you do here are a few rules.

    1. Be on time
    2. You’re there to work not to be on your phone
    3. Dress accordingly
    4. Don’t try to be Superman listen to your body if you think this job is not for you don’t do it
    5. Cancellation are done in four hours in advance
    6. Be respectful
