“Taste and Tweet” offers real-time Word of Mouth
These were the words at the swanky El Gaucho restaurant (Bellevue,
WA) in late June
as TasteandTweet.com introduced the newest way to use social
networking for a business. TasteandTweet.com is a way for a
small group to meet, sample the food, enjoy the experience and share
the experience real-time with their wide audiences who "know" and
The participating Tasters shared
their tasting comments faster than ever before.
TasteandTweet.com organizes a group of socially networked people
that enjoy connecting and meeting with others over food and drink.
These teams of TasteTweeters then taste, savor, and tweet.
Their followers in their offices, at home, and on the road can
share their tasting experience via these tweets and they, in turn, can respond
with questions or they can forward (re-Tweet) the tasting comments to their
own circle of followers. Thus in mere minutes these comments
can travel from trusted party to trusted party through these ever
expanding rings of acquaintances (followers).
At TasteandTweet.com, we view social media as a new form of
business communications. It can be very effective in helping
restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries and other food service
businesses grow their business. Events at restaurants like El Gaucho
have proven that social media offers restaurants
“faster, cheaper, deeper” marketing channels than traditional media. And the followers of
these on-site tasters enjoy the benefit of first-hand experiences
reported by their trusted social media sources.
