~~ Elio’s Pizza encourages customers custom decorate their pizzas, shoot a pic and put it up on social media.
~~ That’s a fun idea for any pizzeria, and is sure to generate some interesting social media traffic. You could have people vote on the most creative design!
~~ Just get a squirt bottle of ranch dressing (strangely popular on pizza) as well as some tomato sauce and possibly some green chili sauce or some other colored decorative additions, that are compatible with pizza.
If you try it let me know how it works out! And feel free to reach out to us here at A-List to discuss great promotion and social media ideas. Cheers – Tim
This Buzzfeed is not a restaurant contest but gave me an idea – why not have customers draw fun pictures on their pizza boxes, snap a shot and post to the Pizzeria’s blog, Instagram or Facebook, just to create a fun experience online for customers. Let customers vote on the best ones and give away a head-turning prize like a pizza a month for a year.

Guy picks a place as #2 in a list of 101 best pizza places in the nation and then writes this: “Dom goes through periods where the underside of the pizza can trend toward overdone, but when he’s on, Di Fara can make a very strong case for being America’s best pizza.” WHEN HE’S ON?!? So according to this guy, a pizza place can be second best in the nation out of thousands of places, top of a list of 101, and have “periods” where the crust is overdone and not always be “on.” Then the slideshow and tabs of the 101 pizza places that sometimes get the crust right does not work correctly. Really got it going on there, DailyMeal.com.
