Besides pairing them with your social posts, use the images in other places like your website, newsletters, and marketing materials.

Add an introduction (1-2 sentences) and a call to action at the end to personalize.

Add some of the images from the gallery to it.

Email your blog out to your followers and promote it on social media.

 

VIDEO

Post to your social media platforms and add it to your website using the URL. We don’t recommend embedding the video on your website. Just embed the link. However, the actual video file is perfect for social media posts.

HOW TO ADD YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS

We recommend starting out with just one or two.  Facebook and Instagram are awesome platforms for food and beverage businesses.

Later.com will store your images for you and will even tell you if you have used that image before in a post.

You can schedule and post on all of your social channels at once.  We recommend that you watch this video to make sure your Instagram posts auto schedule correctly.
