  Facebook For Business - 2. Good Photographs Are Priceless  

When you can - include a photo with your posts.

A good picture will grab peoples attention much more than a simple text or link post.

My posts with photos get far more Views, Comments, Likes and Shares on Facebook than the others.

If you're selling goods or services it might be worth getting a professional photographer to put together a portfolio for you.

If - like me - you're promoting a place - in my case St Ives Cornwall - take every opportunity to get photos. I've put together a library of pictures covering the town through the seasons and various events during the year - such as St Ives Feast. Very useful for marketing.

I carry my digital camera with me all the time and never miss an opportunity to grab a good shot of the town and its people.

Case Study:

I took the photo of Porthminster Beach St Ives - above - pretty much at random.

I was on my way to catch a train - it was a beautiful sunny day and I grabbed a few pics of the beach beforre heading off.

When I posted it on my St Ives Facebook page it got a tremendous response - hundreds of Views and more Shares than I've had for any other post.

Somehow I managed to strike a chord with lots of my followers - and I continue to post nice pics of St Ives whenever I can.

Lessons Learned:
Yes its a bit of a cliche - but a good picture really is worth a thousand words - especially when it comes to online media like Facebook.

Or - simply by talking to you about your business and your aims !
