Is Facebook Messenger Marketing Important For Food Truck Owners?

Facebook Messenger Marketing

Keeping up with digital marketing trends and strategies isn’t easy when you’re cooking and serving at your food truck five to seven days a week, as well as managing employees, keeping up with inventory and doing everything else it takes to run a successful food truck business.

Unfortunately, if you want to continue to keep up with competition, grow your business and thrive in the food truck industry, then you have to keep up with trends, especially when they relate to the marketing side of your business.

Enter Facebook Messenger marketing, a type of marketing in which you connect with your customers using the Facebook Messenger app.

Facebook Messenger marketing is similar to email marketing but can feel more personal because it’s done in a one-on-one setting — you and the person you’re messaging are interacting. Your messages are sent to your customers with Facebook Messenger as opposed to being thrown at an email, which might never be opened or go straight to the spam folder.

Not only are your friends, family members and competition on Facebook but you can easily connect with your customers through Facebook Messenger since they’re also already on this social media platform. Plus, your opening rates will increase if you use this type of marketing vs. a method like email marketing.

While there are many different ways to market on social media (and in this case, Facebook), we’re going to focus in on Facebook Messenger marketing.

We aren’t saying food truck owners should eliminate email and other forms of marketing (especially if they’re working for your business) — we’re just saying Facebook Messenger marketing can take your efforts to a new level since it can help you connect with your customers in a more efficient way.
