Ok, I bit of a different type posting from me. More of a mini introduction to my new EEP specific IG account & background of the why/where/what. It all started with Facebook… oh you sly little social media sucker. How dependent so many of us became on it – both personally and professionally. But times are a changing… Personally my fb usage is way down from months past (cuz I’ve found not one but two new sly suckers… Miss Pinterest and Master Instagram). If I’m on fb less – what about everyone else? Why? Well, for starters, FB drastically changed the algorithm that determines how many people see a given post. Drove me crazy… I was missing out on business sales/announcements for brands that I had liked and then people were also missing my business posts about specials/announcements, etc. A big game changer for small businesses like myself. Add to that – FB openly admits that text-only posts on pages can expect higher organic reach… not what a photographer wants to hear! (I won’t even get into the increasing paid ads flooding my feed) So, have I abandoned FB… not yet (haha) but I always allow my personal interests to go where they may (IG much) and I will most definitely continue to adjust my business resources to areas of social media that I feel are worth my time & efforts. Until today I had been “running” Epic Edge Photography photos under my personal IG account via #hashtags. Now (as of a few hours ago) – Epic Edge Photography has it’s own IG account! I encourage you to follow. There you will find sneak peaks from recent sessions, behind the scene snap shots from shoots, glimpse into what I’m working on, announcements/ads on promotional specials, & yep… good ‘ole pure EEP fun. PHOTOS… a media built for PHOTOS… I only ask myself what took me so long (ok, I know the answer but I’ll spare you the excuses)! So please – don’t be shy… follow @epicedgephotography on Instagram.
