Don’t say it, show it!

Everyone knows the saying “A picture is worth a thousand words”, so why not include this in your strategy for building brand awareness? There is a bunch of to places to share your pictures online, here is a few:

Instagram: 

I have said it before, and I repeat it gladly – I LOVE Instagram! The fabulous mix of pictures and the possibility to connect  with “photo fanatics”  from all over the world, makes me hooked. It is also a great place for businesses to promote their products, create awareness and build a fan base.

The other day I stumbled upon Baking911 and their CEO Sarah Phillips Instagram account, which is packed with pics of tempting cakes, cupcakes and cookies and illustrates the value of Instagram from a business perspective.

High quality pictures of tasty pastries, informative tags about ingredients and links to webpage – clearly, Baking911 has understood the Instagram potential.

WeHeartIt:

The super cute WeHeartIt.com is more than just adding “hearts” to the pictures you like (and to be fair, that is fun too! ). By installing the Heart button to your web browsers tool line, it also lets you upload your own pictures and add tags to it.

The uploaded pictures include the URL from its origin, so this is a great way to promote your blog or website, and the best part; people will spread it for you!

Flickr

Talking about sharing pictures online without mention Flickr is almost impossible, it is THE image hosting website and has more than 50 millions registered users. Therefore I was quite surprised of not finding that many brands present (I later learned that this might be due to strict regulations on pictures for commercial use. For this use, a formal permission from Yahoo! / Flickr needs to be in place), I did however find a few good ones, like Kilroy Travels Sweden:

It makes you want to travel, right?

Your turn – Where do you share your pictures? I’m always looking for creative souls to follow on Instagram and Flickr, so give me a shout out if you are one of them!
