5 Ways to Use Your Facebook Photo Album to Engage Your Fans

You need to make your Facebook page stand out from the crowd. The share-ability and tag-ability of pics makes optimizing your page’s photo album a priority.

Here are some suggestions from Hubspot:

1. Upload pictures of your products in creative ways.

Take visually appealing pics and add them to an album on your page. If you sell cakes then share some of your most mouth-watering creations.

2. Educate your audience with images

Try posting informational images with stats about your company or other interesting facts. (You can’t go wrong with humor either.)  We <3 infographics.

3. Engage your customers by posting pictures of them:

a. Upload pics of people using your product. This does double-duty:

1) it showcases what you’re selling and

2) it engages your existing customers by making it about THEM!  People are more  likely to share pics of themselves on their own Facebook profiles.

Here’s a Community Coffee customer showing off her morning cup of coffee.

If you can, try to tag the people in the photos. (Read: you can only tag friends in photos; not fans.  You can at least email the image on Facebook to whomever is in it; then they can know about it and hopefully share it with their friends.)

b. Fan of the Week: Many Facebook pages, such as those for Dunkin Donuts, The West Bend Public Library and The Hunger Games,  have a Fan of the Week promotion to encourage followers to participate in conversations. Each week one fan is chosen from among those who have participated the most, or,  in some cases, from among those who have submitted their picture, and they are rewarded in some way.

Hunger Games fans can enter to be chosen as Fans of the Week by creating something inspired by The Hunger Games books or movie. Winners receive a limited edition Mockingjay pin and are featured on the Hunger Games Facebook page.

Dunkin Donuts awards their chosen Fan of the Week by posting a picture of them on a digital billboard on Times Square, as well as on their Facebook page.

c. Another way to engage your fans is by encouraging them to send in their own pictures for your page, as Zappos did for their Most Worn and Loved Converse Chucks Sweepstakes.

Marian Schembari has some other good ideas for how pictures can be used on Facebook:

4. Post a pic with a question your fans can respond to. You can ask for their opinion on an image or for  suggestions for a good caption.

Here’s an example of Publishers Clearing House giving that a go.

5. Share fun pics of your staff.  This is how your fans will get to know the people on the other end of the line.  Have an album just for this.

The travel website, Gadling,  has an album with pictures of their writers in all kinds of interesting locations.

I’ll leave you with an image from our Facebook page.  We had been documenting on Facebook Shmuel’s recent trip to Israel to shoot for both Bnei Akiva and The ARK Report.  We made this image using HalfTone, a new app we downloaded for free, courtesy of Starbucks.

    Exercising: Stringent and laborious exercising is over blown
    by many diet programs today. Going through long hours of workouts can definitely be changed
    with this unique program so it is best that you
    are able to try it out yourself. If you just catch something quick on the run instead of eating a full meal, it negatively impacts on
    your workout and everything else you do during the day.

  13. Green coffee is easy to explain and understand’hence my attraction
    to it. A normal and healthy diet won’t have to change significantly as long as junk foods or other
    high calorie food are not part of them. Fruits and Vegetables: Not only do fruits and vegetables contain
    essential vitamins and minerals, they play an important role in the fat-burning process.

  14. If you hate going to the gym or would prefer not to dance your way to slimness then
    you can use an exercise bike at home. Considering
    how much strength and agility is needed to perform the largely gymnastics oriented pole tricks similar to what gymnasts
    do in the Olympics, more men will eventually participate.

    The foundation for any successful athletic software is
    a good combination of a well-thought based on whole foods (veggies,
    fruits, whole grains, and proteins, remember the Greeks.

  15. Suitable for up to 175 guests, Prestwold has a stunning 18th Century interior and extensive gardens overlooking the beautiful Midlands countryside.
    Studios and photographers that belong to the Australian Institute of Professional Photography have taken part in an accreditation process that have appraised their business
    practices and assessed their photography skills.
    It seems like a simple task, but capturing that special day with wedding photography is
    more difficult than you may realise.

  16. Like many Facebook games the missions really aren’t very challenging but they will help you to level up.
    While playing video games, Jeremy and Damon discuss the
    hot-weird Anna and then Stefan shows up. Jenna told him that he couldn’t stay there and she
    was the kids’ legal guardian.

  17. (this will help search engines display your site when people search
    for you or what you do) 3) Preferably no hypens, dashes, or numbers (these are harder to remember and often come off as scammy).
    In addition, you’ll find even explicit colors the folks react to superior than the others,
    so if you wish to exploit the subliminal result the personal website has.
    If you are unsure how to start your own website check with your Internet provider first.

  18. Your landscaping design should make use of much more than just plants and trees.
    These days, no one works for cheap, and so even basic landscaping is likely to cost home owners
    a bomb. Fig trees are among the most popular backyard trees.
