Looking For New Marketing/Promotions For Espresso Biz...

I am hoping that some of you may have some NEW Marketing/Promotion ideas for my Drive Thru Espresso Stand. Things that have worked well in your own Espresso Business. (Customer Giveaways, Buy 10 Drinks Get 1 Free etc...) Thanks for your time...

I put a cute girl out waving and dancing......doubled our business that same day and has never gone back. Did it for one month and now only periodically! Also, I have Tightwad Tuesday...all lattes and mochas up to 16 oz $1.00. Flavor and Shots .50....brings in new people and they don't have to spend alot to "try" your coffee and service. Has been very good to our business overall. Make sure you are prepared to move volume though if you try this because people will not want to wait forever! Good Luck and let me know if you try it and how it works.

I did the buy 5 drinks and get the 6th one free and that worked out well, i also have done free delv up to a 10.00 order for the motels and hotels in the area, that worked out well. I also went to the local companys and gave free samples. SO you see i'm still trying and also could use some other idea's. The one with the girl is a great idea and also the $1.00 sale to.

Jill, hosting free events like live music or art openings worked for me, little or no advertising is needed on your part, you can email in press releases to your local daily, weekly, and monthly papers and magazines, you can also have commerative parties such as grand openings, or anniversary of the openings in press releases and email can be sent as advertising tools......hope this helps.
