He made us proud after conducting Kulture Konnect's first live social media webinar in late August. This month, Jorge Pacheco was asked to be a presenter at this year's Dine GPS Restaurant Bootcamp in Coachella Valley. As a team as a whole, we are extremely excited to be a part of Dine GPS. Jorge has done a great job over the years sharing his knowledge and insight regarding restaurant marketing.

With social media being utilized as a marketing tool to build and grow brands, engage with consumers and reach a specific target audience, you want to be able to measure and review your monthly analytics effectively. Each platform whether it might be Facebook, Instagram or Twitter includes an analytics page designed to help you understand the behavior of your fans and consumers. Depending upon the results from your analytics page, you should be able to glean from your data in order to make better marketing decisions. The problem is with an overwhelming amount of social media analytic data to process, it is fairly easy to leave out the most vital metrics and determine which metrics really matter. We can help.
We designed a Social Media Reporting Toolkit for business owners and professionals that will help you focus on the most important metrics and setting the right goals. In result, proving ROI.
Your social media metrics have been around as long as you can remember but even with that said, so many restaurateurs have never really mastered what to do with their monthly data and how to get the most out of it. Which is why Kulture Konnect's co-founder, Jorge Pacheco, offered a free webinar this past Tuesday titled, "Restaurants 101: How to Analyze Your Social Media Metrics Like a Marketing Pro," to share with restaurateurs the tools to understand and utilize their social media metrics like a marketing pro.
Each month, our team prepares a social media report for our social media clients and at some point we asked ourselves, as much as we prepare and meet with clients to go over numbers, do restaurant owners truly understand what these numbers mean?
Kulture Konnect wants to help restaurants utilize their social media marketing to it's full potential. This webinar will give restaurant owners a clear understanding of how to read monthly social media metrics, teach them which metrics matter the most, why they matter, and how they can make the most of these metrics proving ROI.

Untrained staff could mean a pile of costly mistakes and scenarios, which usually leads to losing customers and dealing with negative reviews. This could also lead to high turnover and wasting time and resources looking for new employees. In an attempt to avoid some of these common errors, let's go through a list of things you'll need to cover that'll have you and your staff feeling prepared and confident before your restaurant grand opening.

Over the years, Kulture Konnect has had the privilege to work with some incredible organizations within the restaurant industry and we recently had the opportunity to give back to not only a cause we whole heartedly support but also an industry that has supported us over the years. As a marketing agency, we were able to connect with a non-profit organization by the name of Taste of the Nation that works alongside No Kid Hungry to help with their social media in hopes to raise funds and promote awareness to end childhood hunger in the US. Taste of the Nation is a series of culinary events dedicated to raising money and awareness for No Kid Hungry and are held all across the country from Southern California, to Texas, New York, and even Minnesota.
This year, attendees will enjoy tastings from the nation’s top restaurants, wines, and premium spirits. Guests will also enjoy live entertainment and a silent and live auction with A&E's Storage Wars, Dan Dotson. The best part, 9 of the top chefs from the Orange County area (shown below) are coming together to lend their support to this amazing cause and by doing so, they will be cooking up a storm of delicious food and drinks for all guests to enjoy. Our social media team is just as excited to go above and beyond to help end childhood hunger.
This year, Easter is arriving a bit earlier than most years (Sunday, April 1st). Every restaurant owner understands the importance of taking advantage of a traditional holiday and using social media to spread the word.
