How to cook up a recipe for success on social media

In our last post about Cookware for Bira members, we looked at the impact of travel on inspiring conversations about cookware. In our latest post, we take a look at how you can improve your content marketing to support your cookware business.

Maybe* listened to the online conversation about cookware across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see where the most content marketing was taking place, which platform drove the most engagement, and which platform delivered the most positive sentiment during September 2019.

Using social media listening tools

The insight social listening gives you will enable you to:

  • Identify the important conversations your audience are having on social media.
  • Put your energy into the social media platforms that are right for your business.
  • Improve your own content and engagement strategy.

Looking at the detail

What’s being said about cookware and where?

During September there were 3,548 conversations about #cookware across social media. 2,380 of them took place on Instagram. The gram also earns content, over 54,000 engagements demonstrating that it's the best place to put your cookware content marketing efforts.

Twitter generated very little conversation about cookware, while Facebook accounted for 7% of content, though sentiment was higher than Instagram at 53%. This tends to be because a lot of competitions are offered on Facebook.

Instagram inspo

As the weather gets a little nippier and we start seeking seasonal flavours to fill our bellies, this is the perfect time to show off your product by taking inspiration from autumnal produce and winter recipes.

The key takeaway

Creating a conversation about cookware is easy to do on Instagram. Ensure your images are visually appealing and show your product in a lifestyle setting. You could suggest recipes that your pots, pans and bakeware could be used to create. And if you’re feeling brave enough, why not experiment with video?
