Designer Flower Center Social Media [INSTAGRAM]

This week’s post will be all about Instagram.  Designer Flower Center recently (within the last 5 months) set up an Instagram account and has had some pretty great success.  This blog post will cover a few terms used with instagram, what instagram is and how we think you can be successful using this great social media tool!

Instagram is an app that you use on your smart phone.  You can go to the instagram site on your computer but you cannot upload and post photos from there.  Instagram is kind of like facebook but the sole purpose of instagram is to post your photos and use those awesome filters they have to make you photos really pop!  Below is a screenshot of what instagram looks like on the computer.

And here is a photo of a screenshot of what Instagram looks like on a smart phone.

When uploading a photo onto Instagram they give you space to add a caption under your photo.  Think of something catchy to say under your photo and after wards think of as many “hashtags” you can think of!  A  Hashtag  is the “#” sign and then a word.  A Hashtag makes your photos more searchable on Instagram which means you will get more exposure and more “Likes”.

For Example, If I were going to post a photo of  a Christmas Display I would look at the display and think of as many words as I can to describe it.

#Christmas #Display #MerryChristmas #Merchandising #Red #Green #Santa #holiday

… and so on and so forth…

TIP: When writing up your hashtags, make sure you leave no spaces in-between words,

example Merry Christmas would be typed as #MerryChristmas (no space!)

Also, don’t forget to “Like” other peoples photo’s too!  Let others know you like what you see!

We would love to see your photos! snap a photo of your DFC product in use or your completed project, post it on instagram and use the hashtag #DFCFRESNO so we can see it!  Also, if you follow us, we will follow you back!  Isn’t social media awesome!?

You can “Follow” us on Instagram by searching DFCFRESNO

One of our main goals with having a facebook is not only to share with everyone photos and information, but also so we can interact with all our awesome customers!   So, we are starting something new!  We want you guys to send us in photos of projects you have completed using DFC product! Weather it is using some of our ribbon, or even home decor you bought that you put up, we would love to see!  AND we will post the photos on our facebook to show off your awesome work!

You can either message them to us on Facebook, OR if you post them you can “tag” us in the photo (but in order to tag us you have to “like” us on facebook first!).  When you tag someone in a photo is sends that person a notification saying that they have a photo that they have been tagged in, also letting them know to go look at the photo!

Below is a screenshot of a photo we posted a little while back.  To “Tag” someone you click the “Tag photo” button under the description.  From there click on the photo where you would like to tag the person and you also type in the name of the person you are wanting to tag.
