Instagram Post Ideas for Photographers: January

February 3, 2020

Looking for post ideas? Look no further! In this blog post you’ll find Instagram Post Ideas for Photographers for January (and every other month for that matter)!

When it comes to Instagram for photographers, there are so many puzzle pieces to consider when it comes to using this platform to grow your business. But one of the most important things is showing up regularly to serve your audience and establish connecting points with them that lead to trust and ultimately BUSINESS.

One of my favorite ways to do this is to celebrate with my followers. And not just with regular wins in my business… but with ALL things.

Whether it’s Dog Day, International Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, or the old “talk like a pirate day”… I love leveraging the right obscure holidays in order to raise brand awareness. (Click HERE to learn more about Instagram for Photographers)

Do I celebrate these holidays in real life? Probably not (except Ice Cream for Breakfast Day of Course)! But the truth is, when we ignore all of these holidays, we are missing a valuable opportunity to take advantage of trending topics, fun holiday content, and establishing potential connections with our audience (yes, that’s right… I am suggesting that someone might like you more just because you both like cookies and cream ice cream the best).

So I created this list, just for photographers, so you can put them in your calendar and get to planning!
