Drive Customer Confidence With Instagram Integration in Your Mobile Ordering App

Drive Customer Confidence With Instagram Integration in Your Mobile Ordering App

TLDR

Ordering takeout and delivery through mobile apps has become second nature, yet some customers may still hesitate before checking out, especially if it's their first time using the app. Per Diem allows you to showcase your restaurant's Instagram feed right within your mobile app, making it easy to build customer trust and encourage them to order more often.

Showcasing your Instagram aesthetic and menu photos right in the app provides users with visual proof that your menu items will match what they see in the app. Highlighting your most engaging community connections and satisfied customers also provides essential social proof that you are a trusted business worth ordering from again and again. With a few clicks, you can seamlessly merge your social media presence with your app to encourage more hungry customers to become loyal regulars.

Show Off Your Brand Personality With Instagram Integration

Build Customer Trust Through Social Proof

Integrating your Instagram feed into your mobile ordering app is a great way to build customer confidence. When customers see photos of your store and reviews from your loyal Instagram followers, it shows them your food and service are high quality. This “social proof” can inspire new customers to order from your app with confidence.

Engage Your Community and Boost Visibility

Feature Instagram Stories, posts, and reviews from your most engaged followers right in your app. This gives your biggest advocates a chance to shine while also boosting your visibility to new potential customers. You can even offer incentives for followers who share app reviews and photos on Instagram. This is a win-win, generating buzz around your brand and rewarding your loyal fans.

Integrating Instagram into your white-label mobile app is a powerful way to build trust, strengthen your brand, and engage with your local community. When customers see your social community and Instagram aesthetic carried over into your app, they’ll have confidence that you’ll deliver an amazing experience with every order.

Curate an App Menu That Matches Your Instagram Aesthetic

Adding your Instagram feed to your mobile ordering app lets you create a menu that vibes with your Instagram style. And when customers open the app to order, the first thing they see is the onboarding screen. Make sure it matches the vibes and colors of your Instagram. Then, treat them to a gallery of pics showing off your delicious food, drinks, and awesome ambiance.

This visual consistency builds familiarity and trust, reassuring customers that the product they receive will match what they saw on Instagram. To achieve this cohesive look, focus on developing an Instagram theme with a consistent color palette, photo style, and composition. Free tools like Canva and Preview offer templates to help you craft an aesthetically pleasing feed.

Once you've built your Instagram following and defined your brand aesthetic, integrate your feed directly into the app. Feature photos of your most popular or seasonal items to highlight what your customers already know and love from your social media presence. This integration helps turn social media followers into loyal customers.

Highlight Customer Favorites

Featuring photos of your top-selling and most Instagrammed items prominently in your in-app menu capitalizes on items your customers already associate with your brand. Familiar options will give customers confidence in your app's quality and experience. Be sure to keep your menu up-to-date by refreshing photos to match what's currently trending on your Instagram feed.

Drive Customer Confidence in Online Orders Through Social Proof

Showcase Your Online Community

Integrating the Instagram feed into your mobile ordering app allows customers to see real photos of your behind-the-scenes, items and space. This gives them a glimpse into your brand and business, building familiarity and trust before they even place an order. Curating a pleasing Instagram presence translates directly to your app, creating a cohesive brand experience across platforms.

Build Trust Through Social Proof

Displaying user-generated content like Instagram reviews, mentions, and hashtags in your app provides social proof that boosts customer confidence in your business. Seeing customers enjoy your product reduces concerns about ordering from your app for the first time. Integrating Instagram is a digital word-of-mouth, with people vouching for you.

Highlight Community Engagement

An active engaged Instagram following signals to customers that your business is popular and valued. Featuring Instagram content like comments, likes and shares in your app showcases your community support. Customers can see that people love your brand and want to be part of that community. This social proof compels them to order and join in, driving more sales and brand loyalty.

Drive More Orders and Increase the Average Ticket Size

Beautiful food photos, reviews, and social media integration ultimately drive more customers to order from your mobile app. According to studies, visual media can increase a viewer's perception of a product or service's value. Integrating Instagram into the Per Diem app taps into the power of visual marketing to boost orders and increase average ticket size.

By showcasing your brand story and community on Instagram, and then integrating that content into your mobile ordering app, you’ll build trust, drive more sales, and create a memorable experience for your customers. The rewards of this simple social strategy can be huge for restaurants.

A second time founder with a passion for building products at the intersection of hospitality and technology.
