HOW TO CREATE A BIRTHDAY CLUB:
STEP 1: CREATE THE COMPELLING OFFER
Its important to make sure you have a compelling offer to incentivize your customers to dine with you versus your competitor. Typical offers involve providing complimentary meals or desserts to the birthday patron if they are accompanied with a paying guest.
STEP 2: Design the Marketing Collateral
You will need to create marketing material to showcase your birthday club to existing guest encouraging them to sign up for your club. This can be post cards you send in the mail, business sized cards you provide to guest upon paying for a meal, or table tents with a call to action to join your birthday club.
STEP 3: AUTORESPONDER & WEBSITE
On the marketing collateral, you will need a destination for the guest to visit to sign up for your birthday club. This can be a simple one page website that is connected to a email auto responder that captures the customers information and automatically sends them their birthday offer upon the time of their birthday.
STEP 4: SIGN UP FORM
you can also take more of a manual approach and provide sign up cards that capture all your customers pertinent information, in which you would then enter this information into a spreadsheet or a database program such as excel or google spreadsheets
