How to Make Every Day a Terrific Day
Selling Your Photo Booth as a Social Media Tool
Social Media stats commonly report that Photo based posts make up 93% of the most engaging posts on Facebook (Socialbakers). As an industry we have unwittingly built the best tools available to take advantage of a massive market for big brands – and we should be leading it. I will take you through some of our most successful case studies in depth and share valuable techniques and strategies for winning this work. In one campaign during the music festival season in Australia our Photo Booths were integral to a 30,000 increase in likes for a major drink brand. At the other end of the spectrum we generated over 500,000 online branded impressions for a small boutique cafe. But half a million impressions and 30,000 likes doesn’t mean much unless you can turn it into real ROI. You will walk away with an understanding of the potential for your business and the skills to pitch and sell your Photo Booth as a Social Media marketing powerhouse.
