Social media inspiration – black dot styled stock edition

black-dot-social-media-one

Finding things to post on social media every day can be exhausting! Using styled stock images makes everything a trillion times easier – trust me. Here are three examples I created for the Black Dot Instagram page and why they work.

  1. Promote an event, sale or activity. Social media is made for catchy links. Take advantage and promote your business or shop with a great graphic to tell everyone what is going on. Make it simple and eye catching and make sure your text gives them all the key details.

2. Promote a blog post or some great information your customers need to know. Got something great to share with your best customers? Use social media to link them right to it. Use a catchy headline or leading question and make sure they have to click through to see what you’ve got to say.

3. Post an inspirational quote or message. Yes I know these can be cheesy but a positive little graphic sometimes can just make your day. Get on board and stay authentic by saying something that is true to your brand and don’t forget to make it cute and pinnable.

Styled stock is easy, quick and makes your social media look super professional! Check out our Etsy shop today to see if a styled stock image is right for your brand.

 

 

Shop Update

maternity-leave

I’ve been busy working on a little project this year which I’m very excited about! My first baby is due any day now so in preparation I’ve closed my shops to have a little time with the new cutie. I’m hoping to be back in 2017 with all my normal shop products – Wink and Love Ideas Ink – but in the meantime you can still shop the Black Dot shop (open 24 hours on Etsy) and I’m adding some printables and e-books to the Love Ideas Ink shop.

In the meantime I’ll be posting on Instagram and I have a few blog posts lined up as well.

I love styled stock and as a small business owner I know the benefit of using styled stock to make your business look great. Not all of us are as lucky as me to have access to such a great photographer at your fingertips so Natalie and I have teamed up to create a shop full of gorgeous styled stock that you can use for so many things.

Black Dot is all about modern stock imagery for creative businesses and bloggers.

Marketing and promoting your business is tough. I get it. It is tough enough to get your brand and product out there day in day out and make the sales, follow up and then … social media rears its ugly head. It is exhausting.

I’m excited to share with you all something new I’ve been working on which hopefully will make all of this a lot easier!
