Toolkit to promote gift vouchers

Toolkit to promote gift vouchers

Gift vouchers are great if your business could use some support. Whoever purchases a voucher helps your restaurant survive, while having a great evening ahead of them. Use this mini toolkit to promote your vouchers through all your channels.

For starters, use an image to grab attention
Not sure which image to post? Download these samples from our Dropbox. You can use them whenever and wherever you want.

  • Your website
    Post a message on your website's homepage or in a pop-up. For example:

Dear guests,


Now, we need your support more than ever. Our doors are closed and we don't know how long this will last. By buying a gift voucher you support us enormously. Treat yourself to a great dinner and come celebrate with us when we have left this period behind us.

We are eternally grateful and hope to see you again very soon! 🙏


Love and strength, ❤

Team [restaurant name]

  • Your newsletter
    Send a newsletter to your regular guests and play to their understanding and support. Always include the direct link to the gift voucher shop to your message. For example:

(Do you use Formitable? Learn how to place a direct link in this Help Center article.)

Dear guests,


It is still difficult to understand what is happening at the moment. As terrible as it is that our restaurant had to close, it is our duty to put public health first.

It is heartwarming to see that everyone is trying to help each other during this difficult time. Now, we need your support more than ever. By buying a gift voucher, you support us tremendously. Treat yourself to a great dinner and come celebrate with us when this is all behind us.

Our gift vouchers start at EUR [min. amount] and continue up to EUR [max. amount].

We are eternally grateful and hope to see you again very soon! 🙏

  • Your social media
    These sample texts are great for Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram. Note: Instagram won’t let you add a clickable link to your post, but only to your bio. End your post with ‘LINK IN BIO’.
