User-generated content (UGC) has become a powerful tool for businesses to help generate brand awareness, engage with consumers, and build brand loyalty. But how do you get people to create this type of content? The trick is to offer people a fun, interactive, and relatable experience that they HAVE to share, which makes experiential marketing a clear winner for UGC.

This helps increase visibility for the brand and fosters a sense of belonging for those not in attendance. Here, Food Truck Promotions offers tips on how to leverage the power of experiential marketing to drive UGC.
