✅ Let’s talk about Hot Shot Trucking Business 101 Social Media Marketing Tips – from the beginning…
Many new trucking business owner-operators often wonder, “What’s more important: 1) a hot shot trucking Facebook page, or 2) a trucking business website?” The short answer is: BOTH.
A trucking business website is the traditional business internet presence and online default location. This is where new transport customers can review your trucking business services and information, as well as see pictures and your hot shot trucking business plan. If you have a trucking blog, you might also have a wordpress page as part of your social media marketing. Trucking vloggers know that trucking business 101 puts a trucking business website domain at the top of their business social media marketing tips list.
And, owning a trucking business Facebook page allows you to connect on a personal level with new (and old) business contacts and provide a personal level of communication that can oftentimes secure the new transport relationship that ultimately leads to a sale (and repeat business). Over time, these relationships and word of mouth referrals can lead to sharing trucking business stories, which becomes the beginning of your new hot shot trucking business vlog or trucking blog.
