Please tell me I dont sound desperate. Here is what I put on my facebook.


As many of you know I am just starting out in the cake business. If you have ordered a cake/cupcakes from me, if you could please comment on my Cake Wanted page. Word of mouth is everything and I appreciate everyone who has ordered from me. Thank you.

Thank you. Everyone that has ordered from me has put comments in my personal page and my husband said I needed to ask them to make a comment on my business page, I just didn't want to sound like I was fishing for compliments.

Word of mouth is excellent advertising. You might want to add a line asking them to respond by giving you some ideas of what specialties they would like to see you produce. This brings them into the conversation and others will respond to it, thus putting your business at the tip of their tongue.

I just went to your page. FB is interactive...you need to be posting all of the time and encouraging others to reply and keep your posts active. If you don't have anything to say, post cake trivia or new techniques you're trying, new flavors, etc. Valentine's Day is coming up, maybe show some heart or romantic cupcakes.
