So, I recently completed Hubspot's Partner Pipeline Generation Bootcamp and I can honestly say that it was one of the best experiences I have had. Dan Tyre was our fearless leader and he kept his pride of lions excited and motivated each week. He has the energy of gazelle that motivates and encourages and pumps the students up! It is a good thing because we all came in as fearful wide-eyed kittens not at all groomed for selling and Dan Tyre had his work cut out for him!

So, you've made the leap into the food truck business and you have your brand-spanking-new-shiny food truck and you are ready to hit the road and sell your amazing food to the public.

As successful as it has become, it is also very stressful. Trucks break down, regulations get tougher and people are unpredictable.

There was one point several years ago the Kulture Konnect Blog went dark for a few months. This is a classic example of "Do as I say and not as I do!"... Please, don't ever let your blog go dark for three long months as we have done. Of course, there are a bazillion reasons why we put a tragic halt to our content marketing machine like getting too busy to manage the content, prioritizing our client work over our own marketing, scrambling to get everything done before the holidays, etc. As they say though, hindsight is 20/20 and looking back today, those excuses seem to be small potatoes. After looking at our website analytics (comparing/contrasting, before and after), we learned some lessons the hard way and we want to share these lessons with all of you in the hopes of inspiring you to keep chugging along the content marketing train. Here is what we noticed when looking at our metrics over our dark period.

Agencies will also make sure to focus on your ROI and aim high to get the results you are looking for.
I know what you might be thinking, "but an agency is too expensive! Is it really worth the money? What if I just build up my own marketing department?"
Here’s 8 reasons why an advertising agency can provide value to your restaurant marketing and how an agency will help you boost your ROI.
On average, restaurants need to change their menus twice a year to keep patrons coming back. "Diners prioritize delicious food when choosing a restaurant to visit, followed by quality of service."

This goes to show how important your menu is and how it must showcase the wonderful dishes.
