Tax Store/Accountant – So not sexy – I know, I know…BUT…Feature your clients with a big return on your Facebook page. You won’t need to coax them to have their picture taken when you save them money this year.

Book Store Special

Book Store – Featured books of the month are obviously the low hanging fruit but why not try a Kids Reading Corner – ask THEM to suggest a book! (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr)





Clothing – Flat lays are hot! Try doing one up on the counter or bench – pair up your feature or specials with all the accessories…or better yet get the customers to try them on and model!(Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest)



Before and AfterHairdressers/Make-Up Artists – THIS business is the CREME de la CREME for Before & After Marketing. The key here is for images to be similar to each other in angle, distance and lighting. Toss those into a collage APP and that’s an INSTANT seller!


Best practices for Social Media.

Now in order to get the best out of your pictures – here are a few ideas on how to engage your customers at the right time and place with your social media postings…

  1. Try and post every day on Instagram and Facebook, Twitter, Tumbler, Pinterest (wherever your clients are). At the very LEAST once a week.
  2. Run monthly contests for engagement.
  3. Offer freebies for check-ins and reviews.
  4. Spend a few moments on the image using some great APPs with filters(most social media have them built in now)
  5. Post at the top of the hour, just before work, lunch hour (12:30-1:00)


Try a few of these APPS on your smartphone for fun…

And a  few more thoughts about your images:

  • Make sure the image is in focus.
  • Make sure the image doesnt have too much clutter around it or too busy
  • Use lots of colour and pattern
  • Use the square orientation if you are planning on Instagram, so its properly framed right in camera
  • Try and get an even consistent light from side to side.
  • Watch out for the overhead lighting…and it’s EVIL shadows!
