There’s just one thing missing from this list of “5 Quick Ways to Earning Bigger Tips” that you just finished reading.
The list of ideas and techniques can easily double your tips.
But wait, you say! “These can’t work! These things are too simple!”
True. They are simple.
But they also work. Every single one of them, each in their own way and can put cash in your pocket to varying degrees.
We also hear “I knew that already,” especially with regard to building the check. Yes. Probably.
Knowing to build the check is one thing. Knowing HOW to ethically build the check, beyond simply recommending expensive items, is another.
In case you don’t recall all five, here’s a brief summary of what they are:
Print this list out and keep it as a reminder in your apron or folio.
All of these techniques are simple. And NONE of them work if you don’t do them. Reading them is one thing. Understanding them is another. But the missing piece…the part that makes them actually work…is actually doing them.
Even ONE of them will help.
We can guarantee that they will not work if you don’t do them. We can also guarantee that they all can work, to some degree, in many or most situations. But you’ll never know which work best for you, in your diner, family restaurant, steakhouse, bar, club, joint or lounge unless you try them.
Hopefully you already know what your regular take-home in tips per shift is right now, and you might even know your Guest Check Average (how much each guests spends, on average, per visit). But even if you don’t, you’ve got an idea. Right?
So do this now:
If you haven’t already, then just pick ONE technique and try it for 4 shifts. Pay attention to your Guest Check Average and your Total Tips. And notice how much more you’re going home with each shift.
It won’t be hard to see the difference.
All we ask is that you share your results with us below.
More great info coming about Tripling your Tips is coming your way in the next couple of days. Stay tuned. More money is landing in your pocket soon after.
