By now, it was clear that web-related communication was the way forward. An internet corporate site was a given.

Twitter certainly has come a long way in popularity since just a year and a half ago. As the Twitter community grows so does the popularity of tweetups. Hold a tweetup for entrepreneurs, marketers, healthcare professionals, left handed people or any other group in your area.

Not only will you get a few extra patrons into your restaurant, you’ll also be spreading the word about your establishment.
I found that the Bangalore based advertising and PR agency handling the Satyam account was not really contributing much though they charged a high fee. We sacked them and through a professional selection process appointed one of the top advertising agencies in the country to handle our paid communication business.
