From Facebook images, images on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and on your website; high quality, simple images that get your idea across, and wow your audience, is key in getting noticed with your pet business customers and potential customers.
I'm a big fan of photography...have been for years. I take well over 20 or more photos of my dogs and cats on a daily basis. I keep my camera and my smartphone handy all the time, because you never know when I can capture a great photo of my pets that I can use to market my businesses. I have a library of well over 5,000 photos of my dogs and cats that I can pull from whenever I need. And you should too!
I took these two photos...the first one with my Smartphone of Gracie outside near our cabin, and the second one I took with my simple point and shoot camera of YoYo taking a rest while I work in my office.
But you don't have to be a professional photographer to get some great shots that you can use to market your pet business. Candid, interesting, clean and in focus shots are very popular now with websites and social media. And this makes it easier for you.
Not too long ago, my dog, YoYo (Johann) wrote a great article (with my help of course) about how to take great photos of your pets. Visit his Squidoo lens to get some great ideas to help make your photos pop!
