We live in a day and age when people want their news/information as fast as possible. Thanks to tools like live streaming, that dream has become a reality.

Live streaming, in a nutshell, is when a person records something and then this person’s followers/fans watch while the recording/video is taking place. It is literally live streaming. The best part? Live streaming is easy to use, it is free on platforms like Facebook and it is trending right now.

Therefore, food truck owners should include live streaming into their social media strategies.Live Streaming

Thanks to live streaming, food truck owners can show off their trucks and kitchens during the present moment. This is important because it results in a food truck’s following feeling like it is right there with the food truck … in the present moment. The customers feel like they are part of the scene, or that is at least the idea. This is the perfect way to make your food truck community feel like it is, well, a community.

Here’s the thing. People love food. Not only do they like to eat it, but they also like to watch it being made. There’s a reason why the Food Network came into existence, after all. There’s also a reason why food recipe videos have taken over social media platforms like Facebook — because people are all about their food.

There are so many things mobile kitchen owners can incorporate with live streaming. They can show people, of course, how a specific meal is made, they can show off the events that their mobile kitchens venture to and they can just create some buzz in general.

Live streaming is good for branding and gaining awareness, which is key when it comes to gaining and retaining customers.
