Add A “Pin it” Button To Your Website and Menu Page 

Having a “Pin it” button directly on your website is an essential element of a successful Pinterest strategy. You want to make it as simple as possible for people to interact with your truck on social, and a “Pin it”  button allows your audience to engage and pin your content instantly. If you currently don’t have a “Pin it” button on your food truck website, keep an eye out for a future article that shows you how.

Drive A Call To Action Through Imagery

A typical call to action is text which prompts your readers to take the next action- whether it be to call your business for catering, enter a contest, join an emailing list or so forth. However, a visual call to action is the perfect way to connect with your audience via Pinterest, since the network is centered around imagery.

Focus On Quality Not Quantity

While Pinterest is certainly a popular network, you don’t want to overload your truck’s feed with too many pins (this practice is often referred to as ‘pin dumping’) and risk annoying your followers. We recommend not posting more than 5 new pins an hour. View Pinterest as a gallery where you upload your most noteworthy or popular menu items, and keep the majority of your inventory on your website.

In September of 2010 he created Mobile Cuisine Magazine to fill an information void he found when he began researching how to start a mobile hotdog cart in Chicago. Richard found that there was no central repository of mobile street food information anywhere on the internet, and with that, the idea for MCM was born.
