Facebook July Leaderboard for CPG Dips and Dressings

Facebook July Leaderboard for CPG Dips and Dressings Doug Schumacher
CPG is a very broad business category, with sub-categories like soft drinks having brands with some of the larger social media fan counts anywhere. In our July ranking of the 25 most engaging brands on Facebook, the three top brands are CPG.



Of course, the CPG umbrella includes many smaller brands, with more niche or regional appeal. One subcategory in particular is dips and dressings. Below is the Facebook Leaderboard for some of the top dips and spreads brands in the US for the month of July.



You can see that the fan counts, while not what you’ll see from Pepsi or Coke, are still substantial. Posting volume is a little light in this category, with even the top brand, Sabra, only posting about 1 time per day.







Fan growth rate is also relatively strong, averaging almost 2% for the industry. That would be around 25% growth per year, and you can see Litehouse Foods, the second largest brand in this group growing at well over 5% in July.



Yet another interesting view on this chart is the comparison of the Engagements column to the 24h Engagements column. As we explain in this post about how to estimate the percent of engagement of a competitor’s post that was generated by paid promotion, It looks like Litehouse Foods and Heluva Good! are the only two brands using heavy paid promotion of their content.



In terms of engagement generated by the content posted in this category, there are several brands at the top, and then a large divide between the rest. Some of the brands in this space with lower engagement totals may want to increase their exposure through promotion of their content.
