Why you need to invest in your DIY visual content media in 2018

How many times have you scrolled through your own social media and paused on a photo or video?


Visual content is becoming increasingly more significant online and Instagram is the place to be - millions of users, millions of photos shared each day, highest engagement and conversion than any other social platform.


Creating quality, relevant, engaging and visually appealing content that reflects your brand – together with a strategic posting strategy is the key to finding you ideal customer and growing your community.

"Social media users want visual content"

Let’s look at a restaurant: Hiring a professional photographer to create your seasonal menu is absolutely a worthy expense. However, you need to consistently engage with your audience with in-between images and video. Depending on your product or service, some clients can pass multiple touch points before committing to a purchase.


When a person likes your photo and video or follows you on Instagram, they are acknowledging your relevance and are wanting to see more of you – starting a relationship and connection.


Utilising the power of your smartphone – you can quickly capture, edit and post those daily photo and video opportunities to strategically keep building that connection and reminding your prospective clients you are there when they are ready!
