Restaurant Viral Coupon Promotion

When the Voodoo Grill decided on a Virtual Prize Wheel to kick up their emailing list and drive business through the door they worked out a full scale small business promotion. Adding the Prize Wheel to their site was a no-brainer. To really get people going they added the Facebook Prize Wheel App which allows players to post to their wall allowing all their friend’s see the Voodoo Grill’s promotion and play themselves.

Attached to every receipt is a simple business card inviting their customers to play. (See Below) They also use table talkers and a few posters within the restaurant. This promotion has helped out the restaurant during the slow season thus far. Many people are coming in and end up winning all over again with their dining experience. All it takes is for a patron to come in once and enjoy their time, they’ll return again and again.

Take a look at their custom Facebook Fan site to see the full integration of the Facebook Virtual Prize Wheel App at
