After5™Specials: Find your Consumption Destination

After5Specials For the General Public

What is After5™Specials.com?

After5™Specials is a Restaurant, bar and entertainment portal for free Public Access to quickly find food, drink and entertainment offerings by region by day.

Why do we need After5™Specials.com?

Before After5™Specials users would either go to a bar or restaurant they knew or they would spend time searching internet websites, reading through local entertainment magazines and reviewing restaurant listing websites (like Yelp, OpenTable and Google). It was impossible to easily compare a comprehensive listing of the specials and entertainment offerings for the local bars and restaurants. Most listing services list the restaurants and provide category and review information (e.g., maybe a lengthy explanation of a bad experience with a waitress) but in order to get more information about the offers and specials they would have to click on each restaurant's website. With After5Specials all the interesting specials are listed in one easy to read listing allowing users to quickly zone in on their consumption destination.

How does it work?

After5Specials.com the consumption/entertainment seeker simply uses the search bar, located at the top of the web page, choosing their state, region, and weekday (defaulted to the current day of the week) then pressing the “Find Specials” button. The result is a list of all establishment’s food, drink, and entertainment specials for that day allowing the user to quickly scroll through the specials in their area and zero in on the one what interests them.

What can I expect next?

After5Specials recently added a coupon feature for the restaurants. Soon to come is the ability for the users to create their own profiles where they define their regions of interest, identify notification settings and certain keywords, which will automatically notify them when new specials are posted that meet their search profile criteria.

After5Specials For Restaurants

What is After5™Specials.com?

A simpler low cost way to advertise and promote your specialties, whether it is dinner specials, your unique way of preparing food, drink specials, happy hour specials or entertainment. Our patented technology allows you to post weekly recurring specials as well as nightly dinner specials, updating daily, if needed.

Why do restaurants need After5™Specials.com?

Restaurants have a number of challenges when trying to attract new customers. Options include:
  • Newspaper and Magazine Advertising
  • Radio Advertising
  • Coupon mailers
  • Online advertising with Facebook and Twitter and other social media
  • Online advertising with Yelp, OpenTable, GrubHub etc.
  • Word of mouth and local promotions
The first 3 items are targeting the local market and may not reach a large portion of the population, especially those that get their information from online resources. Facebook and twitter methods are good, but only reach the users that have already identified your restaurant as a good place to follow, but it does not reach beyond your followers. Online services like Yelp, OpenTable and GrubHub are expensive forms of advertising and only provide a listing of restaurants by category and do not provide any way for the restaurant to experiment with daily specials to see which elicit better responses, nor do they accommodate any entertainment or special offerings. After5Specials addresses the immediate needs of users that are not necessarily locals, those that are familiar with using their phone for everything and want an easy way to find the best specials in a particular area.

How does it work?

Restaurants can register at After5Specials.com/Signup to get a username and password. This allows them to set up their profile, define the recurring weekly specials and have access to update it as often as they want to update the daily or weekly specials.

How do we know if it is working?

After5Specials includes links to the restaurant website, directions, phone, email and all social media links, but most users will simply read the listing of specials for a day for a region. Monthly, After5Specials makes statistics available to registered restaurants so they can see the activity by area by day. Restaurants can create an online coupon that has the After5Specials logo and the restaurant logo, which is one way to track the customers coming from After5Specials. After5Specials is currently developing a new loyalty program to allow a better connection between potential customers and restaurants. Stay tuned for that!
