« No, Everything is Not OK!Restaurants & Wineries Getting Creative in the Poor Economy »


Sorry, but as a columnist (not someone with a Journalism degree), but someone that writes for 4 print and online publications, I can say that advertisers will come into play from 'professional' journalists. If a food reviewer is going to slam the restaurant and they just happen to be one of the papers largest advertisers, that will come into play, regardless of the perceived impartiality. Unless the journalist is some rock star and untouchable by the Editor, that is just the way I've seen it to be. I would trust my friends opinions about their experience before I trust a restaurant reviewer, especially one who is known by the restaurant to be just that. I do like the chance to hear about new restaurants and the menu, but as far as the experience, not so much..

Margie , I've received a number of emails from you. I like the input. Have you ever considered keeping good communication with your client base via voice broadcast? Imagine for important info or promotional info you can broadcast your voice to thousands of people in a matter of seconds. Or maybe a high profile person - you can record and use their message on a voice broadcast – it is very powerful and I am having success with it myself. Look forward to your reply and I will forward my Powerpoint.

To Your Success
