How To Structure Your Website Content

The process of organizing your restaurant’s website content can cause headaches for even the most tech-savvy of web user So don’t be overwhelmed yet. We’ve got you covered.

SEO principles like rankings on Google and customer flow aren’t exactly easy to implement and there are a lot of complicated websites with templates that allow it to appear easy, but then turn into a nightmare for restaurant owners.

We’ll discuss all this and more in our useful How To section but let’s begin with the basics:

Select your web identity

Before anything else, the first you can publish content, make sure to include your website’s internet address, also known as URL.

It is crucial it is to select an address for a restaurant’s website that’s easy to type into your address bar of the browser when you’re hungry and are thinking of ordering a meal or having an online look through the menu.

Your web address should be easy to identify by your company’s name and easy to pronounce and, if you want to, easier to be remembered by your customers.

Imagine the situation in this as follows… could it pass the radio exam?

If, for instance, you were to advertise your site on radio, would listeners be able to locate it later on? For example, restaurant-pronto-in-naples.com would definitely fail the test. Why? Try spelling it using all the characters instead of only the words. Go on …. We thought the same thing (:)

A passing example would be RestaurantProntoInNaples.com, and maybe even restaurant-pronto.com, as it’s less complex than the failed candidate mentioned earlier.

Get the most value from your restaurant’s web content

It’s like ringing the alarm bell: you search for something on the internet, come across an internet site that appears to be exactly what you are searching for, but once you’ve accessed the site it is difficult to find the information that you wanted. The site’s content appears to be cluttered The navigation can be confusing and all you want was to locate an contact form (for instance) and you’re able to locate it after spending an inordinate amount of time and energy.

Consider the situation in this how… How likely are you to abandon your attempt at reaching the contact page?

The same is true for everything else.

Visitors to websites do not have time or patience to search for something on your site that’s not there from the beginning when they could simply press back on your web browser to leave for a different place?

It’s crucial to imagine you in the shoes users and consider the information they require. Also, consider this: how can your customers discover your site?

It may seem a slightly off, but there are two major scenarios to consider here.

The mindset of your website’s visitors affects the content

Scenario 1. They already know about your business

A potential customer may have used the search engine to find your restaurant’s name (e.g. : ” restaurant pronto“) which implies that the person who searched for it already knew about your company or your brand.
This is vital because we need to think about the behaviour of the customer.

What is it that the person have to do to locate?

We can assure you that it’s not photos of your kitchen or of your staff. The majority of times, they are customers looking for an order button to order delivery or takeaway or takeaway list of menu items or the option to create reservations. reservation at a table.

The scenario 2 is that they’re trying to search for something that is generic

Let’s say that visitors visit your site while they are searching to find “italian restaurant in Naples”.
If visitors land on your website you have to make them feel that they have found what they wanted to find. This means you need to clearly state in your title what you specialize in in this instance italian cuisine and the location you’re in situated – Naples.

Now that you have confirmed that your restaurant meets the criteria the customer wants from the headline, and we’ve already begun to think about the mindset of your customers what’s an next step?

This is a little different from the original scenario.

These individuals are not quite prepared to connect with you. They’re still in the process of researching. The next step is to go through menus. Take a look at the list of menu items and look over the menu items and obviously the costs.

If they require downloading either a PDF or an image to access the menu it’s already a loss of points.
It’s disruptive and not the same as of user-friendly. We’ll discuss more about this issue and others down below.

The best way to structure your content

We’re sure that you’re a fan of recipes, and this isn’t different from your work at the table. You provide dishes that you know your customers would enjoy. Why should your website be any different?

Create a website where your potential client only has to think of your food and not worry about where the menu may be. There are some important areas your restaurant’s website needs to contain, as well as other areas that are unnecessary and you and the potential customer are likely to be lacking.

The most prominent area on Your homepage will be your card for business.

What do you want to write in your company card? What would you write as an introduction and description?

Who could be able to read it?

The same principle applies here. When designing a web page, the hero is the top portion that appears on the screen and is the first thing a user is able to see. It tells visitors what the page’s content is and may also include buttons which is that is the “call to action” (e.g. : Download now, Buy now, Order now, etc. ).

As we’ve mentioned before It’s crucial to give users the necessary information. This is why your hero must include:

  • Who are you Your restaurant’s name
  • How you use it is a cuisine type (italian Chinese, italian, etc.)
  • Where are you – – town, maybe even district or even area

The navigation menu should be easy to navigate

A good tip is to ensure your most important pages of your site are accessible through your navigation menu (also called the header) which is the bar at the top at the top of your page , which contains the brand’s logobutton (in certain instances) and the important URLs that you would like users to click.

We have previously discussed how important it is to have instant access to your menu along with the location, contact information or the online ordering option, therefore your navigation must include these.

Include the menu for the restaurant in a clearly visible place

We discussed the reason the user landed to your website, and we now know that the users visit your page to look at the menus, likely to see whether you provide delivery service or even pickup , too.

This implies that the menu needs to have the highest resolution it is within the page – possibly in the hero section or in the navigation menu depending on the style.

It should clearly state the dishes you offer, their cost as well as the menu for the day (if it’s applicable) or any other special offers or loyalty points and, for those who want to drink more the mouthwatering pictures of your food.

Let them know the location you’re in and how they can reach you

Perhaps you’ve already included the name of your town or district in the headline of your website, but what’s the address? We’d suggest not including all of it in your headline. Instead, place it just a little lower on your page while making it easily visible and accessible.

Also, we suggest adding the map of your business to your customers to know exactly where they can locate you.

Tips you can earn bonus points when you include a pin for your location and also include an Google Maps integration. This is not just helpful to SEO (search engine optimization) and thus gaining a higher rank in search results, but this also implies that customers traveling in a vehicle will be able to effortlessly navigate to the location.

Include a photo gallery of your most memorable recipes.

Do you think that most people are the moment to order from a menu, but not being aware of what we can be expecting from the food? It’s interesting to note that you wouldn’t purchase pants without knowing how they’ll are made of, wouldn’t you?

If you’re in the restaurant and you’re eating, you’re not likely to think about it because you’re there already. However, when you’re in online spaces, users have many opportunities to be hesitant about making an order or booking tables. An effective method to keep them in mind that they’re on your site and what they’ll be getting is to have an exhibit of the most popular items on your menu.

Allow customers to reserve a table

If you’re using an online form for contact or provide your number number(s) it’s essential that customers can easily reach you for a reservation.

We personally suggest including the contact page or section in your header. This will be very helpful to prospective customers who have looked up your site online to reserve tables.

You can even utilize an application that will be able to determine automatically whether there’s enough space for their celebration. This will help you reduce time your staff could be able to spend for other things instead of calling and keeping track of each when someone calls.
