Marketing Tactics The two main marketing tactics for On The Go food truck focuses on our social media and our own On The Go promoters. Social media is one way to get our reputation as a food truck out to the people of ProStartville. We can be viewed on Twitter, Yelp, and Facebook. Our promoter s job is to update our information on the web, pass out flyers, and pass out business cards within ProStartville. Social media is a great tactic that can be used to get our reputation out to a large population of people. This includes the three social networks listed above plus our own On The Go website. With this tactic, we would be able to update our customers with information regarding any menu updates, deals or discounts, our next location, or any other important things that they need to know, and we will also answer any questions our customers have. With all of our online marketing, we have no need for a budget since the websites are all free. Our second tactic of marketing is our promoter. Our promoter is also the owner and manager of the truck. Having the owner/manager do the promoting, instead of hiring a different person to do that, takes away the need to pay another employee. The promoter handles all of the online marketing updates to keep our customers informed of anything and everything they want to know. He would also reach individuals at sporting events, the open air market, and the RiverWalk. The extra budget would be for the flyers and business cards that will be passed out. The price for about five hundred cards and flyers plus the ink for printing is about $18 which is a good price for advertising our truck.
