So during the slow months of the year as a newborn and family photographer, we all reflect on what we could do better. Tweak the little details of our businesses to try to make it run a little more smoothly and do all the things we wish we had time to do when things are crazy. This year I’ve decided to spend a good amount of time nailing down my website, blog, and presence on the web. In order to start this process, I’ve been working on an SEO workshop with a pretty cool photog named Courtney Keim. She has given us an assignment to sign up for every.single. social media site known to man. Good GOD…I have no idea what some of this stuff does, but I follow instructions well 😉 Why should you care you ask? Good question. I need your help!!
What is the point of social media if you have no friends…whomp whomp 🙂 SOOOOO, how do you feel about a contest? A little motivation to send a sista some love. This is how it’s going to work. Each day I will post a picture on FB and the specific site that I will ask you to follow me on for that day. All you have to do is follow me and tag a few of your friends. You will get an entry for that day for following me and an extra entry for each friend you tag. In order for me to know you have done what I’ve asked, you will need to comment on the post on the specific site. For example, Monday I ask that you follow me on Instagram. I will post a picture of the contest on Instagram….follow me on Instagram and comment on the picture. In a separate comment, tag a friend for an extra entry, so I can keep track of the number of times I should throw your name in the hat. Each day, Monday-Thursday, there will be a different site I need help with.
So what’s in it for you? Each day I will give away one of my favorite things. I’ll ship it to you if I have to. Prizes will be listed on the post I make on that day. IF you participate ALL four days, there will be a bonus prize you are eligible for. You will only receive ONE entry if you entered ALL four days. Drum roll, please…….you will be up for a free SPRING mini session with ALL your images on a CD (valued at $400!!). (Spring mini sessions are $249 and include 5 images on a CD) Is that enough motivation????
Here are the days and their corresponding social media sites:
Monday – Instagram
Tuesday – Twitter
Wednesday – Pinterest (post will appear on FB)
Thursday – Facebook and subscribe to the newsletter (post will appear on FB)
IF you already follow me on a specific site, or obviously subscribe to the newsletter, tag 1 friend to the post along with the comment that you are already a fan to receive ONE entry. You are welcome to tag more friends for extra entries.
Make sense? Everyone confused? Feel free to contact me with any questions!! Good luck guys! May the odds be ever in your favor (name that movie)!! Hint: No one will be harmed in the making of this contest..lol!!
