The idea behind The Restaurant Section is for restaurant owners to affordably market their restaurants online by creating a complete fact sheet on their business profile within The Restaurant Section. Once the profile is complete, The Restaurant Section begins to market the restaurants. Clifford Bramble, the founder of The Restaurant Section wanted to pass on his experience about marketing and publicizing a restaurant to other restaurant owners. And with the technology available, and the economy on a rebound, he feels that now is the perfect time to start.

Clifford Bramble says, "During this challenging economy, all restaurants need ways of affordable marketing for their restaurants, and we believe that The Restaurant Section will allow restaurant owners to market their restaurants themselves. Additionally, The Restaurant Section allows a restaurant to have a complete marketable press page and fact sheet within minutes of posting their information.

While building websites like this can cost thousands of dollars, creating a business profile page within The Restaurant Section costs a restaurant less than two dollars a day, and can be done within five minutes by the restaurant owner. (Annual fee in 2010 is only $600.00). The first twenty-five restaurants in every state that join will enjoy a twelve-month free trial. In Georgia (where the company is based), the first two hundred restaurants that add their profile will have free membership for life. Members can change/update their information 24/7 without the help of a web designer, which is another cost-saving benefit for restaurants.

The Restaurant Section allows the members to search by profile, post menus, create updates, follow other members, post free classified ads, list chef bios, list restaurant hours and publicists name, add up to twenty images, as well as being able to create events, submit press releases, and post individual restaurant blogs. All of the information that is entered is then posted on one separate page for the restaurant. While The Restaurant Section is niche-specific to the restaurant industry, anyone searching the web can also sign up and view all of the restaurants information. The ultimate goal is for users to find restaurant information fast and easy - which is why everything is on one page. Searches are profile-specific so one can search for restaurants, publicists, concierges, restaurant employees and journalists, and can contact them via the website.

It is a helpful tool for journalists and publicists, since all of the needed press information on restaurants is on one specific page. Journalists can download printable photos, restaurant menus, chef bios, and fact sheets for their articles 24/7. Journalists can also post their own articles, create and join groups, add their Twitter RSS feeds and articles to their profiles, search for other journalists or restaurants, and also message other members. Journalists are free to join and can use all of the functionality within the website.

For concierges, publicists, patrons, and meeting planners, The Restaurant Section is a great way to see everything about a member and be able to assist their clients immediately with recommendations. They can also message members, post blogs and find restaurant events for their guests.

As a listed member, you can then message journalists, concierges and publicists, create groups, and communicate with other members. Members have to select a profile and either be classified as guests, restaurants, journalists, restaurant employees, publicists or concierges.

Why does another restaurant owner want to assist other owners? Cliff Bramble says, "I want The Restaurant Section to be beneficial to all independent restaurant owners nationwide as they are the ones that need a break from the daily expenses. Restaurants work on such small profit margins, and The Restaurant Section will assist in marketing restaurants and ultimately save them money. I would love to see more restaurants marketing themselves online, and The Restaurant Section provides that for them."
