It’s no surprise that San Diegans are spending more time than ever on Instagram. Living in one of the most picture-worthy cities in America means we’re constantly taking pictures and sharing them online. With over 1 billion users, Instagram marketing is a must in today’s digital age. If you’re interested in Instagram marketing but aren’t sure where to start, you’re in the right place. Our social media experts at San Diego Marketing are here to help you plan 30 days of Instagram content for your business.
Take Pictures Constantly
You don’t need to be a professional photographer to capture some great photos to share on Instagram. Depending on what your business does, photograph some of your client’s experiences. Whether you’re a dentist and perform cosmetic dentistry all day or you’re a mechanic who works on cars, take a photo of a happy patient or of a car you’re working on. Your social media should be a glimpse inside your business and what makes you unique. Make it a habit to take photos throughout your week of what you’re working on, your happy clients and work events.
How Much Content Can You Develop with One Topic?
When it comes to creating content, it can be hard to think of brand new ideas all the time, so why not stretch your content further? By taking one topic and creating content for it with every angle, you will spend a lot less time thinking. For example, take one service you offer. Create a post for every step of the service process.
