High-Level:  Without Aware Prospects Won’t Order From You.

A good pizza marketing strategy should include paid social media ads, or PPC advertising as it allows for geo-targeted placements, guaranteeing to reach your hyper local audience.  You can’t increase pizza sales without people knowing (going from unaware to aware) about your fresh local handmade amazing pies.  Prospects need to be aware that you exist before they will search for you to pickup the phone to place an order (or order online which you should have setup by now).   Even for customers who have bought from you need to be reminded of you every once and awhile; part of your retention strategy.

Another word for paid social media advertising is Pay-Per-Click, PPC advertising.  PPC is cost-effective for a pizza marketing strategy because you only pay when the prospect clicks on your advertisement (Pro Tip: your ad should include a unique offer to increase the likelihood they place an order).
