Before you start building your restaurant website

Before you start building a restaurant website, aiming to increase sales, it is good to mention that online orders occur only as a result of visitors converting on your website. Obviously, you might say. But it’s actually common that in the process of building the website, people defocus from these two main objectives:

  • Converting visits to orders and table bookings: Always keep in mind how inpatient your visitors are and how quickly one can leave your online restaurant. Thus, a good website design is about serving your clients fast and offering a nice experience.
  • Getting new potential clients from the search engines: Just like in the offline world, you need visibility, you need to be noticed. Online, the busiest street is the first page of the search result. You can get your website listed there with proper SEO.

Next, ask yourself: how much are you able to do on your own? The right tool for building your website depends on your answer to this question. The good part is that no matter how tech affine you are (or not at all), there are convenient solutions available.
