The Social Media Tips For New Food Truck Business Owners

  • Don’t Simply Stick To Facebook
  • Make Sure You Are Posting Quality Content
  • Make Every Post Engaging
  • Remember That Social Media Does Not Sleep
  • Don’t Be Afraid To Hire A Social Media Manager

Food Truck BusinessDon’t Simply Stick To Facebook

Or Twitter, or Pinterest, or Instagram, or Snapchat. At the very least, set up two or three social media accounts, with Facebook being your top priority.

Every single social media network is different. Sure, they might have their similarities, but they also come with a full bag of differences. That is why it is best for you to have a number of different social media networks for your food truck business.

Not to mention, what works on Facebook might not work on Twitter (and vice versa).

Make Sure You Are Posting Quality Content

This should go without saying, but if the things you are posting aren’t filled with quality, then followers will link that to your food truck business.

If you are overposting, there is a good chance that the quality of the content is going down. Perhaps posts will start to sound too similar to one another? In this quality vs. quantity battle, quality wins.

Make Every Post Engaging

Would you click on it? That is the question you should be asking yourself right before you post something. Literally get in the mind of your customer. If you were scrolling through your feed, would you stop and click on your post for your food truck business?

If the answer is no, then you clearly are not being engaging enough. Entertain your followers. Give them a reason to engage with your post — all of them.

Remember That Social Media Does Not Sleep

If you are just starting your food truck business, you might post every other day, or something of the sort. However, when it comes to building a following, you have to consistently post content — because social media does not sleep.

On the flip side, you, once again, can’t be overposting. For your food truck business, it is important that you find the happy medium between overposting and underposting, but that will of course take some research and experimenting on your social media networks.
