We are so happy that summer has finally arrived! What’s not to love about summer in northern Michigan?
The sun is shining bright, we can finally wear our shorts and flip-flops, the flowers and trees are in full bloom, and our social calendars are full with events and parties. Some of us are happy campers, too – quite literally!
Get Lots of Photos!
The grass is green, the sky is blue, the bay is full of boats, and people are looking for fun. Summer is a beautiful time to capture your business interacting with smiling, happy customers.
Take lots of photos of your business or shop, especially when there are lots of people around. We all respond to photos with people in them and now is the time to get busy photos to share and publish.
Encourage your customers to take their own photos and post them using your branded hashtag. (You have your own hashtag, right?) Let them know you just might feature their photos on your social media channels.
Take Staff Photos Outdoors!
Highlight the area where you work and live by getting lots of photos outdoors. Taking photos of you and your staff doing what you love is a great way to show a more personal side of your business.
This might be a good time to shoot some video, too. Having a staff picnic? Shoot some Facebook Live video so your followers can see you having fun together.
It’s time to get grilling and time to get snap happy. Show off your business this summer with great photos. And videos!
