Optimize Facebook News Feed Presence

Issie Lapowsky discusses the tactics of how to optimize a business’ Facebook news feed presence at Inc.com. She suggested people can use EdgeRank to calculate three statistics:

1. How often two people interact on Facebook?
2. How many comments and likes a particular post has? And
3. How old the post is?

These statistics can certainly help business identify the popular messages and post the “right” messages to reach the target audience. In addition to EdgeRank, there are some other tactics:

1. Initiate a post with a question. Raising a question at the beginning is more effective in drawing responses than putting it in the end.
2. Fill-in-the-blank posts can also help advocate discussion.
3. Do NOT use industry jargons.
4. It is fine to ask for comments and likes.
5. Post photos and video of an advertising campaign and ask for feedback.
6. Interact with your friends’ or fans’ friends/fans.
7. Create a welcome page for new users.
8. Add Facebook’s “Like” button on your company’s website.
9. Know when your friends/fans read your posts and upload the messages at the time when they are on Facebook.

I believe Lapowsky’s suggestions are helpful. One of my research projects is also on social media, with the attempt to answer a contemporary question discusses here. I hope I can share my research findings with you soon. For now, how useful do you think of these tactics?

Is today's market too tough for upscale restaurants?

Operating a restaurant is never easy, but is it particularly challenging for upscale restaurants?

Restaurants Unlimited Inc., for instance, which operates 35 fine-dining and “polished casual” eateries, filed for bankruptcy in Delaware last week. Earlier in June, the Four Seasons Restaurant, an iconic spot for power lunch in Manhattan also closed for business after its reopening within less a year.

Are these two examples an isolated case or the tip of the iceberg? Then, if upscale restaurants are struggling to survive in today’s market, what challenges are they facing?

The rising labor cost

According to the Bloomberg report, Restaurant Unlimited Inc. hires 50 salaried employees at the chain’s headquarter in Seattle, plus another 168 full-time and 1,885 part-time restaurant workers. The rising wages in Seattle, San Francisco, and Portland have resulted in a total of $10.6 million wage expenses in the fiscal year of 2019. Nevertheless, its revenue for the year ended in May dropped 1%, at $…

Suggestive Selling – All You Have to Do is Ask!! (By Nicole Lee)

A simple, relatively normal thing occurred while in the drive-through at Del Taco with my boyfriend the other day.After placing our semi-high maintenance food order, the person taking my order, in a forced monotone voice, unenthusiastically asks, “Would you like to add our new blah, blah, blah for dessert?”All my sweet-tooth-driven ears heard was “dessert” and I wanted something sugary to complete my four-course drive-through meal. My boyfriend asked if I wanted the donut thing they were trying to push, but I ended up going with a churro.As we received our food, my boyfriend told the server, “Good job on the upsell.”In which we received the same unenthusiastic “thank you” in reply. This all led to a discussion about suggestive selling, how easy it is, how to do it correctly, and how beneficial it is.Of course, this Del Taco drive-through upsell experience did not meet our standards of how to do it correctly, but it worked!
