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

Employ the homeless

OK I want to talk about something that holds true to my heart in June 2016 I had the pleasure and opportunity to learn and spend time with people in need and help addicts there is a nonprofit agency by the name of victory outreach ministries

they run several rehabilitation homes and training centers across the world. these programs that are available to assist people to get off drugs and alcohol they also provide them with on the job training and life skills to assist them to get their lives back on track.

It’s done in 2 phases

phase 1

they work with you for six months to year after you graduate you’ll be in you’ll get extensive studies, counseling and learn skills to go back out into the job market.

phase 2 which consist of a sober living environment where you begin seeking employment in the meantime you will have people who are going to work with you so that you won’t go back to drugs and alcohol.

Training centers are completely different, The urban training centers provide education and training for those who seek to go out to become missionaries and pioneers to build churches and rehabilitation homes and to assist those in need and to help stop gang violence.

These training centers are located in Strategic cities in the world.

Why do I speak of this you may ask It’s because in order to get the homeless off the street, people off drugs, children back in the arms of sober parents and gangs to die out we need to start doing this and with our immigrant population slowly fading away due to the trump administration farmers and other corporation may be able to take advantage of this rather than the immigrants that are desperate to Come into this country and work. if you’re a business and you need workers utilize services Provided by nonprofit organization you’d be assisting them in learning new skills that they can take too the workplace and begin to have dignity, self-respect and self worth.

This is a great opportunity to make a difference especially if you want to help the homeless people and addicts that take away from your business rather then give into it, by doing this you are helping veterans, homeless people, at risk youth and reformed people.

Customer service

Let me start by saying I have been working in the service industry for over 10 years I have stayed in hotels and eaten at several restaurants, been to several movie theaters even worked at one.

With that being said I believe Customer/ guest service is one of the most crucial aspects of any business.

Today were going to go over several aspects of customer/guest service

  1. Acknowledge your guest when you first see them preferably as soon as they come in the door Embrace them with a smile and a warm welcome
  2. Be approachable, Post posture is important try not to lean never cross your arms
  3. Create a fun atmosphere for everyone be playful but not too playful be energetic do not be sloppy
  4. Always be objective and understanding to the customers concerns and complaints.
  5. Be consistent with customer rules of conduct and policy that has been set in place emergencies in special circumstances may apply
  6. When ever you make a mistake make sure you fix it do not get upset do not blame the customer or the messenger (cases of couriers)
  7. Be courteous, be mindful and be on time.
  8. Specifically for apps make sure you have a way for us to reach you I Purchased McDonald’s two weeks ago never received my order and I still haven’t gotten word back from them I have a better response time with lyft and Uber

To hell and back episode 2 old coffee pot

The old coffee pot is a breakfast restaurant in the middle of The busiest French quarter of New Orleans In this episode I have seen numerous things wrong with this restaurant here’s my evaluation of the restaurant before it’s makeover

  1. Lack of supervision and management. Your management and employees are a representation of your business where are the ambassadors so when they are unhappy or when there is lack of supervision that reflects on you and quite often when you have Poor leader ship and supervision employees will do as they please
  2. Lack of customer or Quality service It is important that your employees greet customers with respect and glee Employees should Pay attention to customers and check on them as much as possible unless you have Zioskthen all you need is a pager just don’t hold it against your employees too much.
  3. Lack of quality control: when it comes to food you need to remember several rules taste it before you send it when I doubt throw it out For exampleI went to Starbucks at an undisclosed location and bought a Parfait grab the first one The texture was off took it back look to see the other two that were left and the same thing the texture was watery so I brought it to the employees attention you gave me A fresh one but he put the other two that I Warned him about back on the shelf this should not happen. Be sure to practice food safety guidelines to not contaminate your food by licking the plate
  4. Lack of marketing: when you have Idol time be sure to use it in a more productive manner if it’s busy outside and slow inside the best thing to do is to lure customers. Several ways you can do that invite them inside or you can give out samples your best dishes do this as often use meetups to invite customers
  5. Poor body language (post posture) when greeting a customer don’t let them see you lean on the counter give them a sense of belonging gratitude for being there
  6. Make sure you clean up after every shift or as frequent as possible to avoid any infestation
  7. Atmosphere
  • Make sure your guest feel more welcomed And less of an inconvenience for more look to number 2 and 5

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

anyway that’s all I have for today

Buffalo wild wings

Buffalo wild wings found them selves in hot sauce today when A hacker hacked into their Twitter account and started tweeting offensive and racial comments

this comes days after Roseanne Barr Had tweeted out offenses to Obama administration Valerie Jarrett claiming she was the love child of Muslim brotherhood and planet of the apes. Twitter responded with hilarious Memes, gifs and comments while Tariq Nasheed responded to the chains PR stunt by settling out court for 80 wings and curly fries. Buffalo Wild Wings CEO did respond with an apology for the offensive tweets. I don’t know, if you ask me maybe this might be a result of an altercation with Tommy. If you go to the restaurant ask for Tommy I believe he works in the back of the kitchen and is responsible for the sauce, he’ll take good care of you And if you see Melania tell her everyone’s looking for her

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
