Social Media: Have Fun With Photos!

I consult with businesses who sometimes agonize over what to share on social media.  They overthink newsfeed postings in an effort to perfect their message.  That’s when I remind them that social media doesn’t have to be so much work. It can be fun – and engaging.  A photo with a word or phrase can increase likes, spark lively conversation, and even prompt the audience to share.  In fact, recent Facebook data reveals that photos increase newsfeed engagement by 120-180%!

That’s a stat worth putting to work. Try posting a few photos – either isolated or as part of a larger strategy – and see what happens. There’s a lot of merit to humanizing your brand, as well.  The graphic below offers two examples of incorporating the human element into a post with examples from clients, Mimi’s Bridal Showroom and C & P Automotive (the top portion).  I also included a light, humorous image as well as a photo that’s meant to engage or inspire with examples from clients, African Sporting Creations and Maison International New York (the bottom portion).

What photos have you or your business shared to spark engagement on social media?
