Phone Photography Friday

Hello and good morning!

Welcome to November!

I enjoyed an amazing trip to Dallas this week and came back refreshed and inspired. It's our last phone photography Friday post until the next workshop *tear*. I'm going to be focusing on celebrating the holidays with the family and planning for 2016, but Phone Photography Fridays will be back in the new year!

We talked about telling your story last week and now we're taking things a step further by talking about branding.

THIS WEEK'S TIP: BRAND YOURSELF

Examples: @mjmetts' feed shows you how he sees the world due to his background in photojournalism. @karina_mettsphoto shows her life as a mother and an entrepreneur. @mettsphoto is like a lookbook for wedding clients wanting to get a feel for our work. @mariabayer1 is a business coach and you can see her passion as she encourages her audience through words while keeping her feed cohesive and giving you a glimpse of her brand (you should follow her...she's great).

If you're a business owner, you pour yourself into your business. You should think about social media the same way. Thinking about your social media as a complete story instead of single posts will give you a better idea of what to post and what not to post. You will build your audience based on how you want to be perceived, so authenticity is key. 

We're going talk about branding in depth at our workshop on Monday! You don't want to miss our last one of the year.

We are going to have snacks, desserts, goodies to give away, and a time to practice what you've been learning.
