5 Pimped-Out Photographer Facebook Pages

5 Pimped-Out Photographer Facebook Pages

Fact: 47% of businesses attribute social media to increased website visitors (2011 HubSpot ROI Study). 

Fact: Since September 2010, we’ve observed a 180% increase in traffic to PhotoShelter photographers’ websites coming direct from Facebook. (Google Analytics)

Conclusion: Creating a dedicated Facebook Fan Page for your photography business can help gain more online exposure, helping you to get new clients and sell your work. 

Below are 5 five-star examples of photographer fan pages, chosen not only because they’re awesomely attractive, but also because they each implement an app or customization that make them “pimped out”.

“Like-Gating”: You can encourage visitors to “like” your page with a nice welcome image and message, like Jon did on his page. Customize your own (we explain how to customize apps in our free ebook Facebook Fan Pages for Photographers under “Creating a Custom App”). Or you can search online for a “like-gating” app.

Offers: Tried and true, special offers and promos often draw in new customers. Why not advertise it on your fan page for more exposure? Sarah Cornish of My Four Hens Photography uses an app by North Social to display hers.

(PhotoShelter members, creating coupon codes and discount promotions is easy inside your account.)

Reviews: Did you know that you can ask people to review your business right from on your fan page? It’s easy to set up, easy for visitors to use, and an easy way for new clients to learn more about you.

    I clicked through from Facebook! And a great post. I’m new to the whole Facebook page (and Photoshelter archive!) and managed to pickup some basics- but this shows alot more potential!Cheers. Being able to write reviews is something i’ll be sure to look into once i build up a client base. I have designed a front landing page like the above examples which works well i think. What do you reckon? Here it is. https://www.facebook.com/Outdoorstockphotography

    Thank you very much, this list actually really helped me out to compile a list of Facebook pages I liked for my web developer to give me pointers on how to do what other successful photographers do.

    I’m pretty proud of where we’re going with the page so far seeing as Neo has only been operating for a couple of months!
