Skyrocket Your Restaurant’s Growth: Say Hello to Swiggy’s Smart Links!

March 11, 2024

Picture this: a small local eatery in Mumbai suddenly sees a surge in orders, thanks to a single link shared on social media. Meanwhile, a nationwide coffee chain unlocks thousands of additional orders overnight through a similar strategy. What’s the secret behind their success? Swiggy’s Smart Links!

What are Smart Links?

It is a unique link with which restaurants can promote their brand on social media and redirect customers straight to their menu page. It’s a simple yet powerful way to reach customers across various social media platforms like WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook and more. 

Smart Links offer a host of benefits for restaurant partners:

  • One Link, Many Outlets: Intelligently redirects customers to your closest serviceable outlet to them, preventing any order loss & ensuring a seamless customer experience.
  • Valuable insights about your customers: Gives valuable insights & actionable data about your customer’s behaviour.
  • Optimize your marketing budget based on platform effectiveness: Track the platform-wise performance of your brand & analyze which one is most effective to optimize your social media strategy.
  • Easy to use & set up: Takes less than a minute to generate a Smart Link.

Restaurants today typically invest 3 to 6% of revenue towards advertising on online aggregator platforms and social media channels like Instagram and Facebook. While the aggregator platforms offer clear order attribution, tracking orders from other digital channels has been a challenge. 

That’s where Smart Links come in! They help restaurants identify which platforms are driving orders, making it easier to optimize marketing efforts. And with social media playing a huge role in restaurant discovery, especially with younger customers, Smart Links is a game-changer.

Best of all? They’re completely free for all our restaurant partners!
