MP TV – Using The NFL To Trick The Algorithm?

It’s that time of year again… Football Season. The question is: How can you capitalize on the NFL season to get more people in your restaurant? The answer is not yelling at your customers to come eat at your restaurant and watch the game because they already know you have pizza, wings, and beer. The answer is ENGAGEMENT in the comment section! Get your audience talking in the comment section about this Sunday’s game, and ask them who they think will win. Building off of this you should be doing something for every segment in your market, and not everyone is interested in the NFL, but luckily for you, there are more opportunities to engage.
