Internet marketing manager at an Omaha restaurant said he was thrilled to be a part of the internet marketing team for his local restaurants and that it was exciting to be the first manager to get to the internet and start managing the digital marketing efforts.
“I’ve always been excited about the opportunity to work with this team.
They’ve been incredible,” said Justin Grier, a manager at Boca Joe’s in Omaha.
“It’s an incredible opportunity for me.
I’m thrilled to have the opportunity.”
The internet marketing department is a key component of the restaurant’s online strategy, and Grier said that with the team’s experience and expertise, it was a no-brainer for the restaurant to hire them.
While some restaurants may hire managers based on a preference for more traditional management or the ability to manage a team of six or seven, Grier pointed out that Boca Joey’s already had its own internet marketing staff, which helped it navigate its way through the early stages of its internet marketing strategy.
Boca Joeys internet marketing manager, Justin Griers, has been on the internet for about a year, and he’s thrilled to work for the company.
Grier is one of the team of internet marketing managers.
The internet is not new to Omaha.
BocaJoe’s has been online since 2014.
In fact, the company is a member of the online marketing consortium, which was created by the National Association of Independent Restaurant Owners (NAIRO) to create an online food and beverage business model that is focused on local food and the environment.
Bocas internet marketing has been with the company for about three years, and the company said that its team of more than 70 has been trained to handle social media and the internet.
Boca Joeys team has been training since March.
They’re trained on social media management and analytics, and have also had training on web development and SEO, said Grier.
Bocas website is currently home to a video called “The Ultimate Omaha Meal Plan,” which outlines what the company recommends on a menu and what customers should do to prepare the meal they want to order.
The video was created and posted on Boca’s website last year, Griers said.
The video has received over 100,000 views, and Bocas internet team is also currently training on other marketing strategies.
The company’s online marketing team is a crucial part of Omaha’s food and wine strategy, Gries said, because it helps BocaJoys grow its online presence and its brand.
“They’re the eyes and ears on the street, and they are our eyes and the ears on a lot of other places, too,” Grier explained.
“That is a huge part of our success.”
The company has worked closely with the National Restaurant Association to develop a plan that includes the internet, and that plan is currently in development, Grie said.
