Instagram Emerges As Current Powerhouse in Social Networking Media

There’s nothing like the shifting sands of social networking.

It isn’t enough to drag someone kicking and screaming into owning a website anymore – even if it’s for their own profit! Nowadays a website is just a single, and some would argue less relevant, cog in the wheels of marketing and self promotion.

Today’s emphasis is on impermanence and eliminating your digital footprint – if you are a child playing with social media such as SnapChat, or running from the law. For those who need to leave a footprint, and be found? The rules are substantially different – they’re changing but different from their kid’s and outlaw’s philosophies.

INSTAGRAM

Instagram is the single media that is easy enough for a kid or an old geezer to handle – for the most part – and is the single source that values images at more than a word, and often more than a thousand words. Your phone is your ability to advertise, inform, and post to your WORDPRESS website – without even touching the damn thing.

Inside INSTAGRAM things are changing as well. We’ve seen the development of videos, stories and more that give weight and value to the platform as an advertising outlet – a VERY GOOD ADVERTISING OUTLET. And change at INSTAGRAM is always on the horizon.

INSTAGRAM & WORDPRESS – A One-Two PUNCH

If you have a wordpress website, or want me to build one for you, it is quite easy to then implement an INSTAGRAM feed that takes images straight from your feed and puts them on the site. All you do is – do your thing on Instagram. Of course, you’ll want to use good words and hashtags to get a little more traction. You’ll want to follow people who matter, and be CONSISTENT in posting. If you spam captions, or never post images, guess what? Those who followed at first will SOON LEAVE, and once they’re gone, it’s pretty hard to get them back. A word that comes to mind is DISCIPLINE. I know it’s out of favor along many generational and government branches, but if you use DISCIPLINE to work your FREE social media outlets, like INSTAGRAM, it should pay dividends.

New Website Local Business J Brooks Mitchell Cabinet

J Brooks Mitchell Cabinet Millwork

The folks from J Brooks Mitchell Cabinet and Millwork came to me to bring their online presence to life – not back to life – but for the company’s first ever website. That is the kind of challenge I like.

To say the least, we needed to start from scratch with the usual list of elements that make great searchable content:

  • Words – History / Customers / Services/ Work / Future / Attitude
  • Photography – I put on my Shannon Drawe Photography hat and went to work on  images that told their story from scratch.
  • Design – It just seemed natural for a company who has such a great client base, and does all their work by hand – to feature hands, and that’s what I did with the photography. The website layout is unlike any of their competition.
  • Function – WordPress underneath, and optimized pages, images and content.
