Hi Darling,

I once created a Facebook ad and forgot to set an end date. I received a whopping $402 bill. Yep.

Social sites can really work for you, but the key is that you must regularly and consistently find a way to not only engage with loyal followers (plus potential new ones) every day (preferably multiple times a day, at least) but it has to be something of value to them.

If you're starting a homemade chili sauce website, a blog might be a super idea for you. You can share daily tips, recipe ideas, fun facts, giveaways, etc., all related back to your product. You can also offer special gifts, giveaways, contents, exclusively to your blog subscribers, which you can actually collect through social media sites (signup forms, etc.).

Congrats on your homemade chili sauce. I would talk more about your story of why you started your business, what went into your special sauce and tell this to everyone who will listen. Social media is a great way, as you know this must be on your website when you speak to people. Another strategy I would use is the Dream 100 campaign to focus on the places you want to do business with. I hope this helped...


Nowadays, mostly the peoples are connected with social media sites, whether they are business man, employees, House wifes, or students.

I would you do some content via profiles on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram. Also consider doing some blogging too, as a means to some storytelling about your homemade chili sauce.

Hope my advice helps.


Congrats on your business. There are lots of social media users today. So better post your product on Facebook for free or by using the Facebook Ads. Create your own product branding and design your logo to attract consumers. You can try doing the promotional printing ads too, try it here: electroimagellc.com.
