April Post Ideas for Photographers | Social Media Posts for Photographers | Marketing Tips for Photographers with Ariel Dilworth

Social Media Secret Weapon

Why are we on Social Media? Social media is meant to allow us to show up regularly to serve our audience and establish connecting points with them. That’s what will lead to trust and ultimately BUSINESS.

One of my favorite ways to do this is to celebrate with my followers. Not just with wins in my business. With all things.

Dog Day, International Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, or the old โ€œtalk like a pirate day” are all ways for us to raise brand awareness. Click HERE to learn more about Instagram for Photographers.

Do I celebrate these holidays in real life? Who cares!

As photographers, we should use these silly holidays to take advantage of trending topics, fun holiday content, and establishing potential connections with our audience.

Remember Kindergarten? You were friends with someone just because you both liked the swings! People like people they have things in common with! Use these post ideas to find common ground with your audience.
