Like it or not, people don’t like read these days, but a picture says a thousand (1000) words. Technology is all about quickness and efficiency so long drawn out prose is not the way to go. An image on the other hand can convey a lot of information quickly, this is another reason you want to have a graphic designer on your team.
Facebook: Facebook status updates are a great way to connect with your fans, but how do you stand out amongst ALL the other updates scrolling down the page? USE A PICTURE!!! If you don’t use the option to upload a picture on your Wall/Timeline hurry up and make that change (call me if you don’t know how). No one wants to look at a page full of text! Look at this pagefacebook.com/divadancepage and see how the images are eye-catching AND related to the post topic.
Twitter : Twitter ONLY allows about 144 characters so you can’t write that much, but you can use Twit Pics! If you have followed my instructions in Upgrade Boot Camp Advanced Course, you have already linked all your social media accounts up so when you add a picture here, it goes EVERYWHERE. Look at this twitter timeline and check out the ones with photos attached @spectaclularexpo
Youtube & Animoto: If a picture says 1000 words a video can say 1 million (1,000,000). People don’t read but they will watch and/or listen (for a about 30-60secs) so if you can create a video you’re golden! Animoto is a service that allows you to make short videos from pictures you have and you can upload them onto your youtube channel, facebook page, & twitpic account for free to share with your social networks!
Alrighty folks, now go forth and be graphic with your customers & fans!
