As the famous proverb goes, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”, there is no surprise that cooking videos are the recipe to effective social media marketing, especially for food and household products. With a majority of the social media audience aspiring to be a “Master Chef”, recipe videos are proven to be a great hit with massive engagement rates and video views.
