The folks at SocialApps HQ came up with an attractive and easy-to-use solution for restaurants to display their menu, photos, any fan-only coupon deals and more in a custom Facebook tab.
The Restaurant for Pages application can be added to any page that you have administrative rights to.
After you add it to your page, you can upload or link to a menu, enter business hours, create an image gallery, allow future diners to make reservations through Open Table, let users comment and join your mailing list, and configure different views for fans and non-fans alike.
Check out an example here.
The company, which is based in New Delhi, India, features a how-to video tutorial on the site that walks you through step-by-step instructions on how to configure the app on your page.
From the looks of it, the interface is super simple to work with and it doesn’t take much work to get up and running on your page. Hit “submit” and your changes will display in real time.
The whole process could probably take you less than 10 minutes to set up — although the site says it could take you just 30 seconds, we think that’s a bit of a hyperbole.
SocialApps HQ added this latest application to an already impressive library of innovative tabs.
Don’t own a restaurant? No problem, the company has a few other cool tab options to point out.
Among SocialApps HQ‘s other tabs are: welcome, coupon, video, Yelp, and many more that page administrators might like to check out.
Tab pricing varies a bit but the standard is $9.99 per month for unlimited fans; it will only cost you $.99 a month if you have less than 100 fans.
Page admins: Have you ever used a custom tab-building application like Wildfire or Shortstack? What were the benefits or drawbacks that you encountered? Would you be willing to try out a different tab-building application?
