The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the global food industry as governments shut down restaurants and bars to slow down the spread of the virus.
What it does
The Social Media Influencer can upload recent food photos onto their feed, tagging the restaurant name, or attaching a link that enables the Follower to purchase food directly from the restaurant for pick up. The Social Media Influencer can generate a personal link to their Influencer feed OR create a Facebook Business Page (if they are a restaurant owner), where an AI Bot can reply with it when it detects the “Where” keyword of the restaurant business. The Influencer can earn money through the number of clicks/advertisements/successful orders. Anyone can become an Influencer, no huge following is needed. The Follower can purchase the food item identified on the Influencers feed with trusted payment processing platform, Stripe. As soon as a purchase is completed by the Follower, the Influencer’s earnings increase because of their collaboration with the restaurant owner. Direct commission is paid! Ta da! An Influencer can check their position on the platform ranking system. The more Followers that click on the Influencers link, the higher the Influencer advances on the Eatsa chart. The Influencer can see a graph on the Eatsa app of their daily sales via an X axis chart. A statistic chart sorted by dates. Restaurants with the Eatsa app can gauge which meal appears to be the most popular using their official link as well as data from individual Influencers recommending their food.
