10 Australian & New Zealand Flower Folks to Follow on Instagram

Which Social Media Platform is Your Favorite?

The Question:

Which Social Media Platform is your favorite and why?

The Answers:

My favorite social media platform is Instagram.  Like all social media, it has it’s positives and negatives. Positives: I have made some amazing connections with photographers and wedding planners – which has translated into a good bit of business for me.  I’ve also found some terrific local flower growers and can easily stay current with what they have coming out of their fields.
Negative:  If you let it, it can stifle your creativity and make you question your abilities.  Be mindful to only follow people who lift you up and inspire you.

I love Instagram – its visual nature lends well to the kind of work we do.  I’ve been able to run successful shop promos and contests through instagram without spending a dime.  And it links to Facebook & Twitter easily.

I love using Instagram and Facebook – I can easily post current photos of weddings for prospective brides to peruse. They love seeing new ideas in the location where they are getting married.  It often leads to add-ons because they fall in love with a look.

Instagram is our favorite social media platform, because our work is so heavily based on visual aesthetics.  Instagram is the best way to give a quick and varied pitch to potential clients and brides because it shows a collection of our work in a simple and fun way.  I love setting up weddings all weekend, and then getting inquiries on Monday with pictures that I posted, saying that they want to book me based on what they had seen.

Instagram is my favorite social media platform.  It is easy to use and I love the visual aspect.
