I’m a huge fan of Instagram…
And as it’s Florist Friday today, I thought I’d share with you six fabulous UK florists who use this app beautifully to showcase their work and share ‘behind the scenes’ photos.
They include Nikki Tibbles of Wild at Heart, Fairy Nuff Flowers, Euphoric Flowers, Wild About Flowers, Scarlet & Violet and Jane Packer.
Below, you’ll see each of their Instagram pages followed by three images that I’ve selected from each florist’s profile.
So, if you’d like to know more, here’s a little summary…
What is Instagram?
Instagram is an online photo-sharing, video-sharing and social networking service.
It enables you to take pictures and videos, apply digital filters to them, and share them on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr.
Why should you use Instagram?
Instead of just taking a picture using your phone’s camera and loading it up onto a social media site, by using Instagram you can improve the image by adding a filter and also emphasise a particular part of the photo.
Then you can put the image with a caption on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or Flickr. You can follow people and they can follow you. Plus you can add comments and have a conversation.
How can florists benefit from using Instagram?
Using Instagram is a way for florists to build their online community, connect with customers and also complementary businesses such as venues, wedding cake designers and event planners.
You’re able to capture bang up-to-date photographs of your current work and people can see your style and floral designs. It’ll also help people know which flowers are in season during a particular month.
If you’re a florist, I highly recommend that you start using Instagram asap. It’s a free app, which is quick and easy to use.
