Inside: The role of recipes & comfort food in MasterChow Social Media Strategy
With sprinkles of memes, humour and topical content, MasterChow social media strategy majorly revolves around romanticising all things Asian food.
With a short history that dates back to June 2020, MasterChow is a young brand trying to make it big using a solid social media strategy. The market for dips and sauces, especially if one were to consider the various homemade versions that haunt a person’s fridge, is one that’s saturated with options. To stand out, one must have something unique that helps them stand out — for MasterChow it’s their love for helping people access Asian cuisines at home. It’s also evident from their timeline that they make and market their products with love — and customers should too.
Instagram ads, followed by other digital platforms for advertising, occupy a major chunk of their journey. Given the product portfolio consisting of flavors and products that are still comparatively new to the Indian palette and mainly famous among the younger demographic – for instance, Korean BBQ Sauce, Black Bean Dipping Sauce, and Sticky Rice – digital native audience makes sense. Social media ads combined with a steady flow of content, Master Chow has been putting out posts sustainably.
