@annfurnivall Anne, I like to put first things first, starting with verifying and optimizing your Google Local Places Page to the max — lots of details, max photos, videos, coupons, offers, etc.
Your Places page done right can boost your Google Page SERP ranking, getting your business closer to the top of the first page, if you have a website, and generating foot traffic even if you don’t yet have one.
I assume you have a customer email list to send an email newsletter to with your “offers” or special promotions. Dea’s right, however, in that we need to know a bit more about who your ideal customer is, what their problems or needs or wants are, and what solutions your business provides to them.
The restaurant owner’s customers obviously want to know “what’s for lunch” so they don’t miss a good one — a great example of how this owner is thinking of her customer’s wants.
By the same token, what do your customers or prospects reeeeeeeeally want? Give them that through your business and they” not only love you, they’ll bring more friends.
So give us a wee bit more info and perhaps we can better help you brainstorm here. Okey dokey?
