Our Starting a Jerky Business page is the most visited web page on this jerky review web site. As of October 2017, this Starting a Jerky Business web page has over 10,000 pageviews since 2014 according to Google Analytics. The two most common inquiries that we get here at Jerky Ingredients are about jerky submissions, and for advice on how to start a jerky company.
98% of the activity that we track on social media are from jerky makers. As of this writing today, October 16/2017, Jerky Ingredients is following 446 Facebook pages, 409 Twitter accounts, and 458 Instagram accounts.
The number of new jerky makers since 2008 is astounding, close to impressively being a $3 billion dollar a year industry now in North America alone. Our good friends at Jerky UP! have listed to date 349 jerky brands. By pure coincidence, both Jerky UP!, and us at Jerky Ingredients launched our jerky centric web sites in January 2014. To date, we here at Jerky Ingredients have reviewed 166 jerky brands.
If you are serious about launching a jerky company, make sure to read the many comments posted on our starting a jerky business page over the years. There are some valuable bits of advice given in the comments section from experienced jerky makers, unlike us who eventually abandoned the idea, where we spent over $5K researching opening up a jerky company in Ontario, Canada.
The most common denominator we see in jerky makers who go out of business is that they have no to little social media presence. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are critical to any aspiring jerky maker. Resistance is futile, or at least detrimental. The sooner that you start, the better, to start gaining followers.
Submitting your jerky for review can be a great way to get free advertising, apart from the cost of shipping, and the jerky itself. We see submitting jerky for review as a win-win situation. We get new jerky to review, and the jerky maker gets advertising and exposure, including on social media. True, we may not favor the flavor, and rate the taste low, but that is highly unlikely. In this day in age, most craft jerky makers have good to excellent jerky flavors.
For any jerky maker interested in submitting their jerky for review, or just an honest opinion, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Fair, honest, and thorough are the most common descriptions given to us in our jerky reviews.
