How to Raise Your Check Average Using Menu Psychology

Feb16

The mind is a complicated thing. The way people think and take in the world around them has an impact on all areas of life, including the average meal check at your restaurant. If you feel that your checks should or could be higher, the problem may be not in your food or service, but rather with the psychological effect of your menu design.

The design and strategy of your menu creates a strong psychological pull for your diners, drawing them to certain items and steering them away from others. If you understand menu psychology and implement it with your own menu, your average check will start to increase even without any actual changes to the menu choices.

 

Eliminate Dollar Signs

When people see a dollar sign, they almost instinctively hold their wallets a little tighter. Dollar signs remind the diner that they are about to spend money, and this can make people spend less. The brain automatically associates a dollar sign with cost, not gain, and your diners will spend less when they see the symbol. When presented with a menu without dollar signs, however, diners will spend more.

Why Infographics Are So Effective

Nov10

From Faulkner to Yeats, history’s greatest writers have proven the power of the pen. Even so, people are visual creatures – attracted to content with great color schemes and high-impact graphics. Infographics are effective because they combine the written word with visual elements to pack big ideas into small spaces. Presenting information in such a compelling fashion encourages visitors to spend time on your site, consuming and sharing more of your content.

Here are several ways you can use infographics to connect with your audience:

Simplify A Concept.

Informing people about your brand, products, or services using blocks of plain text lacks the impact of a visually appealing infographic. They combine text and graphics into a powerful communication tool – delivering a large amount of information in a format that’s simple, clean, and concise. PishPoshBaby produced a timeline infographic for parents-to-be that is well-organized and visually simple. Keeping Track of Baby Habits provides useful information in a graphically appealing, consistent format that is very easy for new parents to read and follow.
