This can be done by asking them a simple question. If the post is engaging enough and it hits home for your followers, if you will, then they might comment on it, like it, click on it, share it or venture to your website. This could lead to more eyes seeing your posts, more eyes seeing your website, more people becoming aware of your food truck business and more people going to your actual mobile kitchen.
