If the thought of advertising in this economy, gets you worried.. Don’t be. This doesn’t need to expensive or technically challenging for you to get results. As you’ll learn in today’s interview you can start seeing serious results for your restaurant with a targeted ad budget of only $100 a week.

You don’t need to be a social media expert to start getting customers through Facebook and Instagram either. Today’s guest Vlad Edelman is the CEO and Co-Founder of Targetable shares advice on how restaurants can realize the benefits of social media advertising without needing to hire an expensive agency, hire an employee, or spending hours trying to figure out setting up online ads.
