Well, if you've got a less-than-popular product or service such as feminine merchandise, hygiene, insurance, or office supplies, you too can kill it on your social media marketing efforts and generate new sales, as well as create customer loyalty and brand awareness. This infographic, called How Non-Sexy Businesses Rock On Social Media, which comes courtesy of Who Is Hosting This team, shows you how.

As a result more than 4,500 people entered the contest and Dockers has expanded their fan base more than five times since the contest launched.
