ABOUT CapeCoralRestaurants.net

I am Lynn Lea, Cape Coral resident for 7 years, and creator of CapeCoralRestaurants.net, an online dining guide of restaurants in Cape Coral, Matlacha, St. James City, and Bokeelia, Florida.  I developed this website because I found it difficult to get information on local restaurants, both in the phone book and online.  So I created CapeCoralRestaurants.net to be an easy-to-use, comprehensive web listing of restaurants that will be useful to the people of Cape Coral while promoting local businesses.

CapeCoralRestaurants.net is to be the #1 place people of Cape Coral look when deciding where to eat outBy doing so, I can provide you with a powerful online advertising tool, your own web page containing:

  • Your restaurant’s address, phone, fax
  • Restaurant hours
  • Your accepted methods of payment
  • Dining options:  dine-in, take-out, curbside carry-out, delivery
  • A scan of your actual menu
  • An interactive map showing your restaurant’s location, with the capability of obtaining exact driving directions
  • Any other description/information you would like, i.e., “Voted Best of Cape Coral 4 years in a row,” or a link to a News-Press review of your restaurant
  • One email address, i.e., myrestaurant@capecoralrestaurants.net, which will forward to your own email (your email address would not be shown)
  • A link to your website, if applicable
  • One exterior or interior picture of your restaurant
  • Printable coupon, if desired.  This coupon would also appear on our Coupons page.

On the home page, you choose under what food categories you want to be listed, and you will be listed alphabetically. 

WHY be on CapeCoralRestaurants.net?

  • Increasingly, people are looking online when searching for local businesses rather than in the phone book.  You can't afford NOT to be on the web.  The internet can provide the most up-to-date information which, because it is printed only once a year, the phone book cannot.  For example, every time your menu changes or you run a special, I can edit your page on my site.  Having an online presence serves as an important addition to print advertising.
  • If your restaurant already has a website, you may think you don’t need to be on another one.  But are people finding your website?  Do you have the time to worry about keeping it up to date with specials, new summer hours, etc.? And things like search engine optimization?  I’ve developed websites for the past 7 years, so I know about marketing on the web to get people to my site.
  • The permanent population of Cape Coral is estimated to grow by approximately 20,000 residents from 2007-2008, and by approximately 80,000 residents by 2011.*  Even if you have been operating a successful, established restaurant, there will always be a need to market to new visitors and residents to keep filling your seats.

* "Functional" population statistics and projections provided by City of Cape Coral Economic Development Office.

MARKETING of CapeCoralRestaurants.net

My goal in developing CapeCoralRestaurants.net is to provide a useful service to Cape Coral residents and visitors, which, in turn, helps promote local businesses.  Therefore, the majority of my marketing efforts are focused here in the Cape, including:

  • I am a Member of the Cape Coral Chamber of Commerce, where my rack card is displayed.  The Cape Coral Chamber, which receives more than 53,000 visitors to its Welcome Center each year, states that most of their visitors ask where to eat in Cape Coral.  Now those visitors can go to my site to find out.
  • I have an extensive database of local business fax numbers and email addresses, to which I send reminders to check the site when deciding where to order lunch for the office, go for drinks after work, etc.  I also consistently advise of web specials (i.e., restaurants offering Mother’s Day specials, Super Bowl gatherings, etc.)
  • I provide my marketing materials to local realtors, builders and title companies to provide to their customers.

My online marketing includes:

  • Submission of the site to all of the major search engines
  • I use the Google and Yahoo “Sponsored Search” (paid search) using keyword terms such as “Cape Coral restaurants,” “pizza restaurants in Cape Coral” etc., so that people can find what they’re looking for.

ADDITIONAL FUN STUFF

Each month, CapeCoralRestaurants.net will have a separate page with listings of restaurants providing specials for particular holidays, for example, where to dine out on Thanksgiving, or where to enjoy a special Mother’s Day Brunch in May.  I will contact you before the page is posted to see if you would like to appear on that page.  For months without a traditional holiday for dining out, CapeCoralRestaurants.net will have special page – for example August may celebrate football kickoff.  Keeping the site updated with items like these will keep people coming back to the site over and over to see what’s new.

Additional pages which I feature year round list restaurants which offer:

  • Brunch – for restaurants offering brunch, either with or without a separate menu
  • Catering – for restaurants which also offer catering
  • WiFi spots for restaurants offering wireless internet
  • Outdoor Seating / Waterfront Seating
  • Live Music

CONTACT ME for pricing information and to schedule an appointment to customize your page.

 

TESTIMONIALS

 

Below are just a few of the comments we’ve received since launching the website:

 

“Lynn,

What a wonderful web site. An excellent resource for finding ‘just what you are looking for’ to suit your taste both in food and entertainment.

We are using your site all the time now, and have passed the link on to everyone we can think of. . .

Again, congratulations and many thanks for providing this excellent resource and please do keep up the great work.

“Dear Cape Coral Restaurants,

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your wonderful service.  We’ve needed something like this in Cape Coral for so long!  I would particularly like to thank you for your e-mail with a link to see which restaurants would be open to serve Thanksgiving dinner. 

We originally had considered Ariani for Thanksgiving Dinner, but decided against Italian food as we wanted a traditional meal.  Thanks to your e-mail, we found out Ariani would be serving a traditional Thanksgiving dinner special in addition to their regular menu.  We immediately made reservations because we know the caliber of Ariani as we have eaten there many times in the past.  We were not disappointed.  The service was good, the food was excellent and the wait time was just right.

As a matter of fact, the experience was so good that I will likely return next year.  So thanks again for the information!  Without your e-mail I would have missed out on a fantastic holiday meal experience!

Sincerely,

Lisa Bologna”

 

“A friend of mine sent me the link to your website today.  What a great idea!

Do you mind if I put a link to it on my website?  A group of my friends (Realtors) are passing your website around like crazy too.

Thanks!
