Social media has been and is a place where businesses can create an online presence. You are able to create photo albums, run ads, invite customers to events and so much more! Sometimes to create an online presence, you need to curate and obtain the correct content. We had a customer “Ask Us” on where to find useable images from a particular vendor on to use on social media. Let’s see what Jessica Stevens-Car, Mud Pie’s Social Media Coordinator, had to say!
Q: How do I get images of Mud Pie [products] to post on my social media sites?
A: Social Media is the number one player in today’s fashion and gift industry. Social platforms continue to make headlines as being a key revenue generator for retail brands. I believe in diving head first into the social pool and taking on this so called “beast.”
Hi there! I’m Jessica, Social Media Coordinator for Mud Pie. I may be biased, but I believe that it is a huge disservice for brands to not have a voice on social media. It is a tool that goes beyond selling a product. It is a method to build your brand name, interact with your biggest fans, grow your reputation…I could go on, but I’ll hold my thoughts or I’d be talking for days. And the best part about it all? You can virtually do it all for FREE (besides advertising dollars, should you choose to).
I get it…social media can be intimidating. I want to take that fear away and replace it with LOTS of excitement for the future of your brand across social platforms.
To start, retailers have access to Mud Pie’s photos through our FTP site – ftpmudpie.com. Here is where you can find lifestyle images for download. You can fill out the form at this link to gain access to the FTP site.
Once you gain access, posting is easy. Simply save the Mud Pie image you wish to use on social and post to your handles. For any photo your repost, you must tag us @MudPieGift and use hashtag #MudPieGift.
I know, social media can be hard to grasp, but it is also a tool beneficial to your brand!
