Social media is a great way to reach a lot of people with your ideas or products, but it can be a daunting task. There are so many outlets that it can take up a lot of time. We have Twitter, Facebook and have now decided to go ahead and start an Instagram account to help promote our BettywasaBombshell Etsy shop featuring orphaned photos and paper ephemera. Even though Instagram is consider “Twitter for those who don’t like to read”, it is actually perfect outlet for marketing photos. What better way to advertise a picture of a model on a beach in a vintage bikini? Visuals are often the best way to grab someone’s attention. If they like what they see, then they will investigate further by reading the description. 95 photos later our Instagram already has three followers – woot-woot! And the best way to get followers is to follow others. So as we continue our Social Media Adventure, we’ll try to be faithful to all the outlets including our WordPress blog. Thank you and BUY VINTAGE!
