Photography and Social Media

For one of my social media clients I recently did a photoshoot during Mother’s Day. The idea was that the pictures would be published on their blog before the extended buffet lunch was over. That was fast work and hurrying up during photo processing. The result however was great. Within 12 hours after the blog post (with automated links to other social media accounts) went online there were almost 800 hits of which around 90% originated from Facebook and 95% from South Africa. In the meantime, a week after, the number of hits has more than doubled. Not too shabby for a local business. BTW; on FB it was shared on 6 or 7 other pages.

But I do wonder: although most to the blog visitors clicked on virtually every picture most of them did not click the ‘like’ button on FB…… 😀
