When the kitchen heats up and your restaurant is super busy, there is nothing worse than a phone ringing off the hook. Except maybe missing orders due to the phone line being engaged.

With Flipdish Phone Marketing, the goal is to convert phone customers to online customers, build your customer database and grow your online sales. These customers who order online are up to four times more valuable than traditional phone or walk-in customers.

How does Flipdish Phone Marketing work?

When a customer calls your store they hear a voice message promoting your online ordering, and then automatically also get a text message with a link to download your app or visit your website. It’s that simple!

We do not replace your existing phone number. Instead, we forward the Flipdish number to it. Your original number will still work for direct calls and can still be used as normal if preferred!

There is no additional cost for setting up the voice message or sending the additional SMS.

1. Convert your phone customers to app customers

With Flipdish Phone Marketing customers receive a direct link to order online. You can also incentivise customers to order online with a discount off code.

3. Avoids missing orders during very busy call period

Having Flipdish Phone Marketing eliminates the chance of orders being missed during peak call times. Customers will be informed that they can order online instead of waiting in a phone queue.
