Social Media 25th Apr 2017 HDSLR Shooter


Raising awareness of your projects over social media doesn’t have to be a chore. Yes, it can be a lot of work, but if you have a clear game plan before you start, everything is going to have a much better chance of falling into place when you need it to. Maximizing the impact that each social media platform provides will make all that hard work of shooting your film mean that much more in the end.

Content

The content you post for social media is both the easiest and hardest thing to develop. It needs to be impactful while coming out on a regular basis without coming out too often to be annoying to your users.

Here you are going to want to create a schedule before you start. The schedule should include when you are going to post content and what sort of content you are going to post. This is also a good time to start building a cache of images like concept art or posters that you can send out at a moment’s notice. You can also use online tools such as HootSuite to pre-schedule posts.

Some examples of good content to publish are casting announcements, the start and end of shooting, and behind the scene photos.
