Best Way To Advertise Pizza Restaurants In Fayetteville

Jan 4, 2020 9:03:32 AM / by Larry Julius

Fayetteville consumers cannot get enough pizza.

In 2012, there were just 135 local pizza restaurants. Today, however, that number has grown to 146. In 2019, these establishments racked up $68,640,726 in total sales.

Fifty-nine percent of pizza sales in the Fayetteville area are rung-up by one of the top-50 chains like Domino's or Pizza Hut. The remaining 41% of revenue is controlled by independent, small business owners.

To compete for a larger share of the pizza pie in Fayetteville requires local restaurant owners to bring in new customers. A proven way to accomplish this is with advertising.

The US Small Business Administration recommends that every Fayetteville area small business advertise consistently.

Fayetteville Business Owners Improve Advertising By Deleting One Word

Aug 20, 2019 12:44:04 PM / by Larry Julius

Currently, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, there are 171,476 words in the English language. A handful of these words, Fayetteville small business owners can't use in their radio commercials. The Supreme Court of the United States says so.

Of all the words that can be used in broadcast advertising, however, there is one word that should be shunned: 'get' and all of its nasty derivative forms including 'got' and 'gotten'.  Here's why.

The typical 60-second commercial on Fayetteville radio consists of 160 words.  Depending on the station, each word in that ad could cost around $1.00.  It is important, then, that each word is carefully selected to engage listeners and then compel them to action.  This is especially crucial when using verbs. 

"One of the best ways of grabbing and keeping an audience is to use strong, descriptive verbs," says the Writing Center at the University of Houston.  'Get' is not that kind of verb.

The Best Way To Advertise A Restaurant In Fayetteville

Aug 16, 2019 9:35:00 AM / by Larry Julius

This year, Fayetteville area consumers will spend $546 million in local restaurants and drinking establishments. There are hundreds of restaurants in Cumberland and Robeson counties hungry for a bite of that cash.

Unfortunately, many of the restaurants that are here today will be gone tomorrow. According to FSR, a trade magazine for the restaurant industry, 60% of restaurants fail within their first year. Eighty percent never make it to their fifth anniversary.

CBI Insights studies why small business owners, such as local restaurants, fail.  Reason number eight is poor marketing and advertising.  Good food and friendly service are not enough to make a cash register ring.
