How do restaurants respond to the clear shift to online for today's diners? We propose a framework restaurant managers can use to kickstart their marketing initiatives. Whether it's for a new concept or to re-invigorate an existing restaurant you can use this framework to take the next step with marketing a fine dining restaurant.

The framework has two parts. The first is the technology that currently exists restaurants must leverage in their marketing. The second is the ways in which restaurants appeal to today's diners. The framework demonstrates how all these areas interconnect to produce a coherent restaurant marketing strategy.

Great fine dining restaurant marketing requires restaurants to have a deep understanding of how technology, values and marketing interconnect. Restaurant marketing is digital first and restaurants are setting themselves up for success with CRM and restaurant reservation software that helps find and retain new customers. Social media has infected all elements of the restaurant experience, with diners looking to become part of the conversation. Restaurants can setup their marketing to encourage existing customers to promote the restaurant themselves and rely less on strategies like advertising.
