Yelp: iPhones Offer Greater Location Accuracy Than Androids

Yelp: iPhones Offer Greater Location Accuracy Than Androids | Restaurant Tips | Scoop.it
Roughly a week ago Yelp offered an interesting post on its blog. The post reveals how Yelp prevents false check-ins or “check-in fraud.” But more importantly it’s about how Yelp matches reported user location with business locations.It’s also a comparison of positioning methods and a discussion of their relative accuracy.

 

Yelp explains the three ways to locate a mobile device: GPS, cell tower triangulation and/or Wi-Fi positioning. Yelp then compares the accuracy of the systems and the devices that use them: iPhone vs. Android vs. iPod Touch.

This is a common fact in today’s marketing. Using social media to boost and slingshot sales and traffic. Social media is a very very powerful tool for marketing and the food industry is not exempted. In fact, for me the food industry will be get the most benefit from social media.

With the skyrocketing popularity of different social media sites – Facebook, twitter, even tumblr, pinterest, and blogs, peoples opinions and voices were amplified a million times.

6 Lessons From a YouTube-Savvy Restaurant

6 Lessons From a YouTube-Savvy Restaurant | Restaurant Tips | Scoop.it

When Matt Levine was opening Sons of Essex, a restaurant on New York City’s Lower East Side last fall, he decided to use YouTube to promote the establishment and its menu offerings.

“We live in a society where information travels fast, and the entertainment value and visual stimulation of videos seemed like a great way to get a creative and innovative message to our guests,” he says.

The success of Sons of Essex’s videos can be a lesson to other small businesses. While restaurants have an advantage in that the things they purvey — food and drinks — are pretty universally appealing, many industries can benefit from creating videos....

Food Tech: New Technology From Farm To Table

Food Tech: New Technology From Farm To Table | Restaurant Tips | Scoop.it

Maybe the only thing people in the San Francisco Bay Area obsess over more than technology is food.

So it makes sense that there is so much interest in food startups in the area. I had the opportunity to moderate a panel of startups for the FoodStartups meet-up group recently. The speakers were a nice mix of companies working on different parts of the food chain. Some like Kitchit, focus on creating new ways for consumers to experience food and meals. Others like Localdirt connect consumers (and retailers) directly to healthy local food producers.

10 Things You Didn't Know About Yelp

10 Things You Didn't Know About Yelp | Restaurant Tips | Scoop.it

Next to Google, there's probably no more important site for small businesses than Yelp. Yet perhaps no other site is as poorly understood. For instance, is it a good idea to encourage your customers to give you good reviews on the site? Does Yelp pay for reviews? How do you go about countering bad reviews?

Since Yelp is such a juggernaut, it's important to get the facts straight. With that in mind, take a look at these 10 things you may not have known about the service.

1. Most of its traffic is from its homepage. You might think that in 2012, most people would be accessing Yelp from their smart phones, but that's not the case. Sixty percent of searches are from desktops, and the company's mobile apps are used by about 7 million people. Yelp.com gets 78 million visitors per month. However, like other social media companies, the trend is definitely favoring mobile.

Ever call your favorite restaurant to order lunch, then wait an excruciating amount of time in line to pay and pick up your meal — only to get home and realize the restaurant gave you tuna salad instead of tuna niçoise?

That’s the problem that OrderAhead, which came out of beta test mode on Tuesday, is hoping to solve. The company offers a free mobile application that lets users skim through a catalog of restaurants, select what they want, pay for it and then quickly grab their order at the restaurant.

Good Nutrition Data: No Longer Hard To Find? Nutritionix

Good Nutrition Data: No Longer Hard To Find?  Nutritionix | Restaurant Tips | Scoop.it

Changing diets and consumer preferences are forcing restaurants and food brands to find ways to share nutrition and ingredient information with their customers. Also, restaurant chains with 20 or more locations are now required to provide detailed nutrition information on their menus, thanks to a provision upheld in ”Obamacare.” But many don’t have have central databases to easily organize and publish this data.
Similarly, startups building recipe, grocery, and restaurant nutrition and discovery tools face major challenges with obtaining accurate consumer packaged good (CPG) data and nutrition data. These startups are forced to clean and restructure data on 7,500 basic items from the USDA’s National Nutrient Database or to license expensive – $100,000+ annually- and often outdated, CPG databases from companies like ESHA, Nutribase, Gladson and FoodFacts.
Nutritionix is trying to tackle this problem by building a suite of tools that allow restaurants and food brands to organize and publish their nutritional data, thereby making it easier for consumers to interact with it.......
