Organising images on your Facebook page

Images are powerful tool in social media. Good images get shared and can take on a life of their own, As a page owner, how do you get value for your effort when it comes to images?

Here are a few tips I’ve shared with clients in the past –


Artists! Don’t lock up your content

First, two examples –

1) For a Short Time is one of favourite songs on one of my favourite albums (Lethal by the Kilo) performed by one of my favourite bands (The Tiddas). They disbanded a few years ago and I’m so lucky that I have copies of all their albums. But. If you don’t already have a copy of their albums, there’s a really good chance that the only versions you’ll ever have access to are pirated copies (like the one in the YouTube clip above). I’m constantly wanting to tell Australian teachers how For a Short Time (and many other songs from their albums) is a fantastic stimulus text to discover Indigenous history and society. But I have nowhere to send teachers to buy a copy of it.
