While digital marketing is different for every business, and many people might think it’s for business owners who are trying to sell a product or service, it’s also essential for food truck owners.
After all, digital marketing can be done for cheap, you are, in fact, selling a product (your food) and it can help you attract new customers, as well as keep current ones happy and engaged.
With that in mind, we pose this question:
How are you using digital marketing for your food truck business?
Many food truck owners make their food and locations their main focus points, and that’s exactly how it should be. However, you can gain a lot of customers if you strengthen your digital marketing efforts.
Some owners might be using email marketing. Some might be doing nothing more than posting on their social media accounts whenever they feel like it. All that is well and good, but a social media strategy, just as an example, can help create brand awareness and inform your followers.
While posting content on a routine basis (and mixing it up with videos and pictures) is a great tool for food truck owners, we encourage you to try a method that’s really on the rise: Facebook Messenger marketing.

In its most basic form, messenger marketing can be used like email marketing in which you send messages to your followers using Facebook’s Messenger app; however, messenger marketing is said to be more effective than email marketing and leads to higher open rates.
There are other ways to use digital marketing to your advantage, such as good SEO practices and quality content. Of course, most food truck owners are less focused on those types of tactics because it’s not relevant to their businesses (although it might be for some).
At the end of the day, the most important thing is consistency at your food truck, high-quality food and good customer service, but you have to get people to your truck if you want to increase sales and reach your monetary goals.
Some owners do this by working more hours and finding more catering gigs and events. While those strategies work and we encourage them, we also believe digital marketing, especially with social media, can help food truck owners in a big way, even if their main focus is to keep customers informed and engaged.
If you’re looking for a new way to take your food truck business to the next level in the new year, then look at your digital marketing strategies and see how you can improve in that department.
