  • Facebook Promo Ideas- Share

    So I'm putting myself "out there" by posting all these, but hopefully we can all gain something and get some ideas flowing. I use photoshop, but there are a number of free programs that are available that will accomplish the same tasks. The attachments are just simple and creative ways that I've found that generate likes and comments on Facebook. I don't have time to find out if they actually work or not.

     

    • I usually don't post any promo on Monday but I like to throw out a quick blurb about the past weekend's gigs and issue a heart-felt thanks to those that came out. I'll occassionally tag the venue and they seem to like that once in awhile. Not too often though because it can come across cheesy if it's more than a few times a year.
    • I'll normally keep the promo stuff at a minimum until Wednesday. Sometimes I'll post a monthly calendar, a recorded original or a video or something on Tuesday.
    • I'll hit it pretty hard on Thursday and Friday and post a few updates with an attached image throughout the day on Thursday.  
    • Friday- I'll normally add a video, poster or one of the othe things on the venue's Facebook page. And "share" Thursday's image (for consistancy) on my own page.
    • I've found that new pictures on these promo images usually get a lot of likes.

    It can be difficult for us.. because on the weeks where we're playing Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.. getting each gig to seem "special" can be a really hard thing to do.

     

     

    Also.. in the last picture with the hat, you look like Daniel Negraneau.

      Yeah it's the same with me too- more during the summer though. You just change it up to make the "week" seem special. (Happy to hear you're playing that much)

      Daniel Negraneau...lol

      After reading this again I'd have to say don't give up so easily. None of the promo pics I put up advertise a single show. Let me ask you this. Do you use Facebook for "advertising" your gigs? If the answer is "yes" then do you think an image or text will better convey the message? Which one will almost guarentee that it's looked at? It's the image. It's always the image. 

      I'm just throwing some ideas out there- nothing personal of course.

    For a while I was trying to snap pictures of the crowd during shows and post them the following week. Out of that habit lately.

    What free software can you use to do the picture edits?
