If you’re posting on your food truck’s Facebook page and not seeing engagement in the form of likes, shares or comments, you’re wasting your precious time. You need customer engagement if you want to continually be seen in the news feed. For those of you that didn’t know, the news feed is where all the action is on Facebook.

Use Images To Boost Your Facebook Updates

One simple way to boost your engagement is to use images to boost your Facebook updates. If you want to know where your customers would like to see you park next week, take some images of the spots you are considering and ask for them to like or comment. Take the location with the most likes or positive comments and put it on your list of upcoming locations.

Another route you can take is to search for “blank” images like talking bursts, chalkboards and signs, and then add text to the images, in the form of a question for your followers to answer.

How To Add Images To Your Facebook Updates

Step 1: Enter your status update

First step is to enter your Facebook update, and then click on the Picture button next to the word Attach.

Step 2: Browse for the file

Now you want to click on Upload a photo. When you click on Upload a photo, you’ll see a new screen that will give you a Browse button.  Click the Browse button to start browsing your computer for the picture.

Step 3: Find your picture

Find the picture you want to add to the status update, just like you would browse for any other file you want to open.  When you find it, you can click on it, then click on open, or just double click on it.

Step 4: Submit your status update 

You are almost done with adding an image to your Facebook update.  After you have found your file, the little box next to the browse button will be filled in. Just click on the Share button, and your status will update.  That’s it.
