What’s New in Apps for Business

There’s a veritable ocean of apps for businesses floating around out there. There are apps for small business, large business, startup business, and many more. There are apps for accounting, for inventory, for ordering and shipping, and the list goes on. But is there an app that will accurately give you a snapshot of a client or customer who’s just walked into your business? And if there were such an app, how would you use it? Welcome to Trist (www.gotrist.com), the app you’ll sign up for as soon as you finish reading this blog – yes, it’s that good!

What is Trist?

Trist is probably the most important, dynamic, and sophisticated tool you can use to get to really know your customers. And when you know your customers, it allows you to increase your CLV (customer lifetime value), thus boosting your sales, and increase profits. By using Trist you’ll be better able to retain your customers, resell to your customers, and directly contact them when you’re having specials or sales you know they’d like to take advantage of. And it does all of this in real time!

Trist takes marketing to a new level

Let’s say you’re the owner/operator of a pub or bar. Mr. Jones stops in for an after work drink. He does this maybe three or four times a month. He’s a good customer, and you’d like him to come in more often. But how do you do that? Simple! You make note of what he drinks, if he’s a sports fan, or any other information you think may be pertinent. Then you add it to his Trist profile. The next time he comes in, you check his profile, and ask if he’d like his usual scotch on the rocks, and what did he think of last night’s game. You’re personalizing him. You’re making him feel special. Do you think you might see him coming in more often? You bet!

Trist allows you to keep in touch

Through email to Mr. Jones’ smart phone, tablet or computer, you can tell him when you’re having special events like a “game night,” or starting up a darts tournament. Advertising people call this getting a “share of mind”. Essentially, through face-to-face contact, plus electronic media, whenever Mr. Jones thinks of relaxing in a convivial atmosphere and having a pleasant drink, your business will immediately pop into his mind. And when that happens, your chances of getting him back in the door multiply exponentially.

The more you know, the better you can market

And the better you market, the more business you’re going to attract, and ultimately the more your profits are going to grow. Trist is inexpensive, it’s proven, and it’s something you need to keep ahead of the competition. All the information you need can be found on www.gotrist.com . It takes just a few minutes to sign up, and like thousands of other businesses in NYC, you’ll be very glad that you did. So, go to the site, check out the information and get Tristing!

What Is The Best Mobile App For Events?

More specifically, what is the best app for Event Managers? Why are we even talking about mobile apps to begin with? What about the good old standard desktop computers? Isn’t that the audience you should be looking for, because just about everyone has one at their home or office? Well, people now spend a lot more time on mobile media than they do on their desktop computers. In fact, a recent study concluded that in the US, time spent on mobile media is now at 51% as opposed to 41% for desktops. That 51% equals almost 3 hours a day on tablets and smart phones, smart watches, smart TVs and just about anything out there that’s “smart.” So, if you want to reach your potential customers doesn’t it make sense to get the best mobile app for events? Of course it does, and we’re happy to tell you which one that is.

Introducing Trist

This is the best mobile app for events that you can find. It’s a snap to download, easy-as-pie to operate, and will get your message to your potential event customers in a way that will keep them coming back, over and over again. Would you like an example? Let’s say you’re an Event Manager for a nightclub and you’re going to have a popular band or MC come in for the weekend. Now, you could spend a ton of money advertising, but that’s really a hit or miss proposition. Your potential customers may or may not see your ad – and in most cases, it will be fleeting.

Step up to Trist, and get those customers into your club, two ways. First, if that potential customer is looking for a club to go to, he/she punches the criteria they’re looking for into their mobile device. Let’s say they’re looking for jazz, and that’s what your club, and the group coming in for the weekend, is all about. With the criteria in, up pops your club with your latest venue information. The customer sees you have just what he/she is looking for and makes plans to stop in. Then there’s the second way. Once in your club you can ask them for their email, either verbally or within their bill, and then send them news on events you know they’ll be interested in. And voila, you have a new, steady customer. Is this not the best, pinpoint marketing mobile app you’ve ever seen? You bet it is.

Trist is taking New York City by storm

In the short time it’s been introduced to the Big Apple, Trist is changing the way people find entertainment. And it’s not just for clubs; coffee shops, concert venues, sports facilities, restaurants, and pubs are using it! The possibilities are endless, and it’s time you stepped up to take advantage of them!

Go to Trist and get started

All the information you need is there at your fingertips. Check it out, get answers to any questions you might have, sign up, and sell out that event to customers who will look forward to coming to your club again, and again – of course, with their friends! Isn’t now the time to get Tristing?

Look at the Coffee Shop’s Page

On each coffee shop’s Trist page, you’ll find information about the venue. You get to know if the coffee shop allows pets, if there’s parking, if it has Wi-Fi, if they accept cash only, and if the place is good for kids. Before you choose a café, you should always check a coffee shop’s Trist page to see if they are listed as being good for kids. This will help you choose a place that your kids are sure to love.

Check the Menu for Kid-Friendly Drinks and Food

You can also reach a café’s menu from your coffee shop finder app. On the venue’s Trist page, you’ll see a link to their website. There, you can check the venue’s menu to see if they offer drinks your kids love, like hot chocolate. If the coffee shop serves food, you can also check to see if they have a kid’s menu or see if they serve pastries or sandwiches that your kids like. With Trist, it’s easy to find a coffee shop’s menu.

Contact the Coffee Shop

If you’re not sure if a coffee shop will be right for your kids, you can use your app to find the venue’s contact information. On their Trist page, there are links to the coffee shop’s social media. You’ll also see their email address. You can contact the venue through their email or social media to find out if they cater to kids.

Using Nearby Restaurant Apps when Going Out with Friends

Which Is The Best App For Restaurant Owners Looking To Increase Their Business?

Restaurant finder app

There are a million apps out there designed for restaurants, and they run the gamut from inventory control, to payroll processing – and just about everything in between. They all have a place in the modern restaurateur’s operations and business flow with one exception – marketing. Of all the apps available, not one app has been designed to get more people to come through your door. Apps for restaurant owners are plentiful, but what’s the point if they can’t increase your business? Isn’t that the bottom line? Of course it is. Now there’s an app that will do just that. Designed for restaurateurs, it’s called Trist, and restaurants throughout the area are using it not only to increase traffic, but to also keep those customers coming back. How does it work? Glad you asked.

Trist will make your customers feel special when the come to your restaurant

 And when they feel special, they’ll come back time and time, again. It’s not magic; it’s all in the software. How? Trist allows you personalize your customers by giving your servers and wait staff information on the patrons – from when they usually come in, to what they order, and a whole lot more. This allows the server to establish a bond with your customers because it gives them information they can use, which otherwise might not be immediately available to them. It allows the server to make the customers feel special, even pampered! And when customers feel they’re getting special treatment, they’ll come back time and time again, and bring their friends with them! But how does Trist do this? Very well indeed!

How Trist works

 Seamlessly! It’s simple. You don’t need to be a technical digital guru. You don’t need to do any programming. You simply put information into Trist (takes a few minutes – that’s all), and Trist securely stores it in order to give you a customer profile. Nothing could be easier.

Let’s take an example

 Mr. and Mrs. Jones dine at your restaurant once a month. They’re good customers, tip well, and enjoy themselves. Problem is, they just come in once a month, and you’d like them to come in more often. How do you do that? It’s simple, you make a note of what they eat and drink and put it in your Trist file. Let’s say that Mr. Jones usually orders a filet, medium-rare, and Mrs. Jones has haddock. They often have a gin and tonic before dinner, and split a bottle of Pinot Noir with dinner. So the next time they show up, your waiter/waitress can personalize their visit by saying something like, “Hi, Mr. and Mrs. Jones. Will it be the filet, medium-rare and the haddock, or would you like to look over the menu? And would you like a gin and tonic to start off?” And just like that, bam, you’ve gotten their attention. They’re flattered that you not only remember their names, but what they order as well. Do you think this “special” attention will get them to come in more often, and bring their friends as well? And remember, all the information Trist gives you about the Jones is in real time.

Is this the best ever app for restaurant owners and managers?

 For getting customers in the door, and making them come back time and again, there’s no doubt about it. Isn’t it time you got Tristing?

 

 

What’s The Latest In Nightclub Apps?

EOZpjI3oSqKPNnF2S4Tp_Untitled

If you’re a nightclub owner/operator, you know it’s a tough, tough business. In order to stay on top you have know what your customers are looking for, and then make sure you provide it. If you don’t there’s a nightclub down the street that will be happy to. But with everything else you have to do, how do you keep track of what’s hot, and what’s not? How do you get inside your customers’ minds? How can you personalize your interaction with your customers to make them feel so special they’ll want to come back time and time again? The answer is a revolutionary nightclub app called Trist (gotrist.com), and it’s really shaking things up.

What is Trist?

Trist is an app for bars, nightclubs and restaurants that really lets you get up close and personal with your customers. It’s sophisticated, but easy to use. It allows you really get to know your customers. Everything from when they usually come, to what they drink. This allows you to increase your CLV (customer lifetime value), which will lead to increased sales and profit. And by using Trist, you’ll be a step ahead of the competition, able to retain your customers, and get new ones as well. And it does all this in real time!

Let’s take an example

Say you run a nightclub. Mr. Smith comes in occasionally to have an after-work cocktail. This occurs maybe two or three times a month. He’s a good customer, and you’d like him to stop by more often. How do you get him to do that? Actually, it’s simple. You make a note of what he drinks, and what he likes, and put it in his Trist folder. Let’s say he likes a scotch on the rocks, and is a big baseball fan. So, the next time he shows up you’re able to say, “The usual, Mr. Smith? And how about that game last night.” Mr. Smith is delighted with the personal attention, and guess what? He stops in more often! He feels at home in your lounge or nightclub. Remember the song from the old Cheers TV show? “You want to go where everybody know your name, and they’re always glad you came.” Well, that would now be Mr. Smith.

But there’s more

With Trist, you can keep in touch with Mr. Smith. You can send programmed messages to his smart phone, tablet or computer. You can tell him when you’re having specials that he’d be interested in, and invite him to stop by. Advertising people call this getting a “share of mind”. Essentially, through face-to-face contact, plus electronic media, whenever Mr. Smith thinks of night clubs or bars, your business will immediately pop into his mind. And when that happens, your chances of getting him in the door are far, far greater. Makes sense?

This is marketing to the max

It’s personalized, targeted, and will pay off handsomely for your club. You’ll also find that Trist is inexpensive and very simple to use. And, it will keep you miles ahead of the competition!

You Can Increase Your Bar Or Restaurant’s Profits Without Lifting A Finger

restaurant profit

And in other news, pigs can fly, all politicians are honest, and the moon really is made of green cheese. We know you’re not buying it. You know how much work goes into paying the vendor bills, meeting the payroll, and squeezing out a profit. What do you work, 14 hours a day? Maybe more? And here we are telling you that you can increase your profits (in many cases substantially) without lifting the proverbial finger. Hogwash! You say. Ridiculous! You add. It simply can’t be done! But we’re here to tell you that it can. We’re Trist and we have an app that is taking NYC by storm.

It’s not magic; it’s taking marketing to another level

Think about this: Jim walks in. A casual customer, he comes in once or twice a month. You’d like him to become a regular. How do you do that? The key is making him feel special. For example, knowing what he drinks. You may not remember what kind of drink he likes, but Trist does. Based on a compiled history, Trist will tell you how many times he’s been in, when he’s been in, and what he orders. When he sits down, you can say, “Scotch on the rocks, Jim?” He’s taken aback that you remember (or, rather, Trist remembers) what he drinks, and is very pleasantly surprised. You’ve made him feel welcomed and special. And when you do that, Jim becomes a regular. He’s part of the “family”. See how it works?

Trist measures

But that’s only part of what Trist does. For example, Trist might tell you that on Wednesday evenings business is usually slow, and the crowd ratio is 8 to 2 in favor of males. Now that you have that information, what can you do with it? How about having a Wednesday evening special? For example, for every guy who brings a date, her drinks could be half price for the evening. Think that might generate additional business? It very well might. And if it proves successful, you’re going to attract a lot of new customers, including females, who could become regulars. With this hyperlocal marketing power, the scope of what you can do is virtually limitless. All you need is your imagination.

The more you know, the better you can market

And the better you market, the more business you attract, and the more your profits grow. Trist is inexpensive, it’s proven, and it’s something you need to keep ahead of the competition. Any and all information about Trist can be found on www.gotrist.com. It only takes a few minutes to sign up and, like thousands of other businesses in NYC, you’ll be very glad that you did. Find us online and start something in Tristing!

It’s simple, you make a note of what they eat and drink and put it in your Trist file. Let’s say that Mr. Jones usually orders a filet, medium-rare, and Mrs. Jones has haddock.

How do you Turn Casual Customers Into Regulars!

restaurant app for business

If you operate a bar, restaurant, pub, coffee shop, club or similar establishment in New York City, one of your most important marketing goals is not only to retain your current regulars but continuously make new ones. How do you do that? By serving quality fare in attractive surroundings with pleasant help (bartenders, wait staff, etc.). Sounds pretty straightforward right? Problem is… the guy down the street is doing the same thing. The venue two blocks over is doing the same thing. Everyone is doing the same thing. With such similar competition, it’s very difficult to turn casual visitors into regulars. What you need is an edge. We’re Trist and we have an app that will give it to you.

Knowledge is power

Let’s take this as a given: The better you know your customers, the better you’re able to treat them. And the better you treat them, the more they’ll frequent your business. It’s human nature. We all enjoy feeling special, and if a bar/restaurant goes out of its way to make us feel valued, we’ll most likely visit over and over again. However, it goes well beyond a smile and “What will you have today?” Everybody does that. Instead it’s, “Hi, Sam, haven’t seen you since last Tuesday. Scotch on the rocks, or would you prefer something else today?” It’s all about personalizing to the customer and making him/her feel like they belong. Once you do that, they’ll keep coming back. Problem is, you may or may not remember Sam’s face. And as for when he came in last and what he drinks? You haven’t a clue. Fortunately, Trist does.

Think of Trist as your memory bank

Using Trist is ridiculously easy, and the results are ridiculously awesome. Trist will give you all of Sam’s information – how often he comes in, what he’s said about you, when was the last time he stopped by – a complete history. And it does it in real time, 24/7. If you’ve been looking for that proverbial edge, you’ve found it in Trist. Trist can help you make any customer feel more welcome; á la Cheers, “You want to go where everybody knows your name and they’re always glad you came.” Trist can do that for your customers. Make them feel really welcome, part of the family, and loyal to your place of business. And once you’re able to do that, watch your profits grow!

You need Trist and you need it now

All the information you need to know about Trist can be found at www.gotrist.com. You’ll find testimonials, a full range of services, an explanation of how the app actually works, and a whole lot more. In fact, you can download the app right then and there. Takes hardly any time at all. And there’s no time like the present, so why not do it right now? Once you use Trist you’ll wonder how you ever got along with out it. Happy Tristing!

Closest Coffee Shop Near Me

Coffee Near Me

I’m New To NYC And Was Looking For The Closest Coffee Shop Near Me

And to tell the truth, coming from a small town – well, New York City can really overwhelm you. So even looking for the closest coffee shop near me became a major undertaking. I suppose I could have wandered around until I finally found one. Problem with that was, I’d probably end up getting lost. Or settle for the first coffee shop I ran into, even though there was a much better one right around the corner. Because as we know, all coffee houses aren’t created equal. And I take my coffee very seriously, especially at seven in the morning! Luckily for me, a coworker put me on to an app named Trist, and that solved my nearby café hunting dilemma.

What is Trist?

Trist is unlike any locator app you’ve ever used. Most apps can tell you a café’s location, sometimes the types of coffee they serve, and occasionally give it a rating. That’s fine as far as it goes, but it just doesn’t go far enough. I want to know about the coffee shop’s ambiance. Seriously! I like to linger over my coffee, use my tablet to catch up on the latest news, and relax before the hectic day begins. I don’t want to do that in some espresso bar that’s overcrowded, loud, and gives you java that tastes like mud. To use a play on words – that’s not my cup of tea. I wanted to find a nearby café that had a great relaxing atmosphere, served excellent coffee, and possibly frequented by people my own age. As a newcomer to the city, it sure would be nice to make some new friends. And Trist helped me do just that.

And there’s more

Trist can not only find the perfect coffee shop near you, but restaurants, pubs, bars, clubs and events as well. It’s the app that will take you from morning to night. My suggestion? Even if you’re a seasoned New Yorker, you might want to download Trist now. The sooner you do, the faster you can get Tristing!
