The secret to a great product page is in the sauce. When you sit down at a new restaurant, you unfold the menu, and take a look at what the restaurant has to offer. It is the appeal and the allure of the menu, the photos, descriptions and, of course, the price that help you make a decision as to what you’ll be having. Why can’t it be the same for your business website?
Easy Restaurant Menu Manager is no longer just a menu creation tool for restaurants. It’s a great way to organize any and all kinds of products, services, and custom data right on your WordPress website with hassle-free updating and editing.
A menu should be simple but thorough. Menus provide straightforward, detailed information about your products and services while giving customers all they need to make an informed purchase. The best way to appeal to potential customers is to take the guesswork out of shopping by laying it all out there on the table.
Need to make a price change? With ERMM, you can quickly and easily update and reorder your product page with the click of a mouse. And the best part? It looks and feels just like your website. Forget the old days of uploading PDFs and get back to simply running your business.
Here are five creative ways any business can use the Easy Restaurant Menu Manager plugin for WordPress.
Effortless Luxury. One of the easiest ways to use ERMM is when your business offers several services and needs to list them under categories. A spa site is the perfect example. Seamlessly list facial, waxing, massage and nail services under each category with the included price. You can easily rearrange them later and update them as you need to. Restaurants use icons to denote spice level or vegetarian dishes, but you can get creative. Use the icons to label different levels of relaxation, inviting your customers to find the right product to conquer their stress levels.
Awesome feature: The plugin automatically matches your website’s style and theme. That means if your site is responsive, your menu will be too. So your customer can cuddle up with your products and services while late night browsing before bed or waiting in that long line at the bank while the clock ticks down.
It’s all in the numbers. Offer a service that may not be as photogenic? Make it all about the description. ERMM allows you plenty of space plus access to WordPress’ basic text editing tools so that you can customize each listing through typography, allowing thorough explanation of the services you offer, and steering clear of boring, mundane listings.
Awesome feature: Make tax season a snap by showcasing those services first. By using the order option in the ERMM dashboard you can quickly and easily change the order of the listings to showcase more applicable services during the appropriate times of year.
Let the products do the talking. To avoid your clientele being overwhelmed by the numbers of choices. Dispensaries can use ERMM to detail the wide range of marijuana products and potency they have to offer. Using images will entice your subscribers and further categorize each variety. The smallest details can yield the biggest outcomes when it comes to customer interaction and transparency, making for a prepared buyer when they enter your store.
Awesome feature: The optional two column layout can make for a pretty slick product display for all those tasty treats. The extended version allows you to upload multiple menus, which can be used to differentiate types of products. By dividing available medical marijuana products into groups and sections, you can educate your buyers, not just sell to them.
4. Parks and Recreation groups or other city departments
Focus on service. ERMM would be an asset when setting up a local Parks and Rec site. Use the plugin to create detailed listings of your local parks, their locations, and amenities to create easily accessible information for both locals and visitors looking to get active and see the sites your community has to offer.
Awesome feature: Utilize the icons to tout which parks include which amenities like water and boat access, public restrooms, barbecue grills, play equipment, jogger paths, and picnic tables.
Involve your community. Use the menu to show off your unique equipment and project spaces inside your facility with a detailed description of what the equipment does. They can be rearranged later with the weighted order option to highlight updates.
Awesome feature: Use the Daily Specials Add-on Plugin to showcase a particular Maker project or announce new additions. You’ll have your new members lining up to try out the new machinery at your next Make Night.
