MGH Survey Finds Nearly Half of U.S. Diners Have Tried a New Restaurant Because of its Social Media Posts


BALTIMORE, April 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MGH, a full-service restaurant marketing agency, today announced the results of a study that examined how influential a brand's social media marketing can be when it comes to driving restaurant trial and customer loyalty.

The survey determined that nearly half (45%) of U.S. diners said they've tried a restaurant for the first time because of a social media post made by the establishment itself, while 21% claimed posts could be a deterrent. Further, 22% said a restaurant's social post enticed them to return.

Results from the study demonstrated that positive restaurant-to-consumer social media engagement often leads to increased customer visits. Of respondents who actively follow and engage with restaurants on social media, 74% say they are more likely to visit or order food from those establishments.

"For restaurant marketers, it's clear that high-quality social media content, along with active engagement practices, still has great relevance to consumers," said Ryan Goff, Executive Vice President, Social Media Marketing Director at MGH. "When done right, social content marketing can have great influence over where diners choose to spend their hard-earned money."

Other notable stats included:

About the Study
In February 2019, MGH conducted an online survey of 1,069 U.S. adults ages 18+ who dine in, order takeout or had food delivered from a restaurant at least once a month. The margin of error is 3% at the 95% confidence level. Discrepancies in or between totals are due to rounding.
