Social Media Strategy for your Photography Business
Posting high-quality content consistently is the best way to grow any social media following. But we’ve all been there: that slight panic when we realize that we have no idea what to post.
Creating a social media calendar can help ease that panic because you will have planned out what you will share and when. The ideal social media calendar will have all of your social media activity planned out: what pictures, links, blog posts and videos you will share, where everything will be shared and when.
First, determine what your posting frequency will be. This will be different based on each channel and audit of your efforts you completed for each. Next, determine what content mix you will be using. It can be helpful to decide to categorize your posts. Maybe you will use Inspire, Educate, Connect and Sell as categories. You could also use Blog Post, Video, Announcement, etc.
Here’s a quick guride you can measure during each phase:
- Brand awareness
- Audience growth
- Post reach
- Engagement rate (likes, comments, shares)
Finally, decide what your ideal content mix will be. Remember that most of your content should be customer-focused, so don’t only post when you have a sale. A recommended mix is 80 percent helpful or interesting content and 20 percent of content that’s selling your business. Hootsuite also recommends the rule of thirds, which is:
- 1/3 of your content promotes your business or generates leads
- 1/3 of your content comes from other sources that align with your business
- 1/3 of your content engages with followers directly, either through answering questions, responding to comments, or re-posting user-generated content
There are plenty of tools out there to create a social media calendar, but a simple spreadsheet will suffice. You can even create different tabs for different months. All you need is:
- Social Media Channels
- Time and date you will post
- Post copy
- Your content category
Once you’ve filled out your content calendar, you don’t have to be a slave to posting every single post manually. There are a lot of great scheduling tools that you can queue your posts into. Buffer and Hootsuite has a free plan that allows you to connect three social media channels and schedule up to 30 posts! It also has a calendar integrated into its platform so that you’re able to see which posts are scheduled for which channel and when.
Also, Take Advantage the of SEO
SEO, or ranking highly in search engines, is a long term strategy that takes some studying to understand how to do (beyond what we will be able to cover completely here). My belief is that you should always focus on local networking first, as that has the ability to get you very quick gains, whereas an SEO campaign can take years to truly get you where you want to be.
But that being said, SEO should not be ignored, because most people will use Google to find the right photographer for them. Always remember, the goal of Google is to serve up the most relevant websites for the query topic. If you want to rank for a specific term, make sure to create the best possible page that will answer that query. Without this, an SEO strategy will not work.
