Lititz, PA (PRWEB) June 18, 2007
Listrak, a leading email marketing solution provider based near Lancaster, PA, announced today that The Brickery Grill and Bar, one of Atlanta's leading neighborhood family-style restaurants, has implemented the Listrak email marketing solution. Formerly a bCentral user, The Brickery needed to find an email solution provider after Microsoft announced that it would no longer support its product. The Brickery was recommended to Listrak and it knew that Listrak could take their weekly email marketing campaigns to the next level. Most importantly, it knew that Listrak shared its values in the way it builds customer relationships and offers personal service. To read the entire Brickery case study, click here.
Bruce Alterman, owner and operator of The Brickery, says, "As an independent restaurant operating in a big market, our permissions-based email program has become the most important marketing tool we have. We are getting outstanding response, and we are excited about maximizing its potential. Listrak's tech people are available, patient, and knowledgeable. They have put us on track to a better understanding of how to manage our lists, and we have never had a better open rate. As a bCentral customer for years, I can tell you that there is no comparison. For us, it's all about the service…personal service…that Listrak provides."
Ross Kramer, CEO of Listrak, says, "The Brickery has created a great weekly email marketing campaign. It uses tongue-in-cheek humor to interact with their patrons on a personal level. One campaign offered a 20% discount if the customers told their wait staff some good news, which not only created a fun, celebratory atmosphere in the restaurant, it also helped the patrons and staff get to know each other personally. This interaction has led to The Brickery turning patrons into friends, and very loyal customers."
Listrak has helped the Brickery understand the challenges of restaurant email marketing. As an independent restaurant, the Brickery did not have a large marketing budget or the technical expertise that that large national chains have, yet Listrak has helped The Brickery position itself as a family-favorite restaurant. It began by focusing on email rendering and delivery issues and now it's moving towards more advanced features, such as contact profiling and list segmentation. And it's working. The Brickery noticed that food sales are three times higher after it sends out an email campaign promoting that weekly special, and its sales were up over $6,000 this past Memorial Day weekend, a generally slow weekend of the year.
