Show and Tell!

A Picture Is Worth 1000 Words

Show and tell was a popular activity in school and remains popular as I move through the business world. A picture is worth a 1,000 words and in the world of social media they also capture most of the attention. Insert panic face because I know you are thinking, how can I come up with enough engaging images to post daily?

Stay with me, I got you covered. We stare at screens all day so we crave a relationship beyond the word smithed email and text message. So if we are going to continue to look, we want to have fun. Lifting the mysterious veil of your computer is a great way to offer some fun. As you move through your day, capture photos that can be shared with fans and they will know who they are supporting. Another reason to let them behind the scenes is that ideal clients will self-select when they know more about you.

To further explain, I provide three different content ideas that can be used for most, if not all businesses. I matched each content concept with at least 5 image ideas.
