Food trucks live and often rely on social media, but what about a food truck’s website?

How important is a website for your truck, and what are the best practices for running a useful site that actually helps your business?

In this episode of FoodTruckr School, I’m happy to welcome Brian Casel from RestaurantEngine.com, a website and platform dedicated to helping restaurant and food truck owners create a perfectly suited, mobile-responsive website with all the bells and whistles for those in this industry.

In This Episode, You’ll Find Out About…

  • Whether or not websites are all that important for a food truck.
  • Where a website fits into the overall strategy for food truck marketing.
  • The best practices and tips for getting the most out of a food truck site.
  • What items should be located “above the fold” – shown on a screen before visitors have to scroll down.
  • How involved we should be in website analytics, and the important designing for mobile users.
  • The importance of having great images on your website.
  • Plus more!
