Food Truck Marketing Tip: Use Facebook Messenger & ManyChat

Mistakes

Facebook Messenger marketing is all the rage nowadays (read more about it here) and food truck owners can really benefit by adding it to their digital marketing strategies.

To help give you a better idea of how Facebook Messenger and ManyChat can help your business, we’re going to turn it over to Evolve Media owner and partner of FoodTruckr Ian Smith.

Sign up to receive the FoodTruckr Newsletter and we’ll throw in our free guide: 6 Free Social Media Tools to Get People Talking About Your Food Truck.

Food Truck Marketing Tip: Use Facebook Messenger & ManyChat

Instead of using email marketing, Smith uses “Messenger as a way to give people a lot more information and follow up via tutorial videos and quick tips in a way that’s much more personal and one-on-one.”

He also takes advantage of calendar bookings with Facebook Messenger and allows people to set up a meeting with him when interested by providing a “Calendly link in my chatbot message which links them to the available days and times to talk.”

That strategy alone can be essential for food truck owners who routinely make visits to apartments, gyms, business districts, etc. After all, this allows the managers and owners of these companies to easily reach you to set up times for your food truck business to serve food.

It’s all about convenience and making your life and the customer’s life easier and this technique can help with that.
