Creating Photo Sharing Accounts

While you can upload photos to your website, there are other options available to put a social spin on them. Photo sharing sites allow you to share and promote content, including:

  • Photos and videos from rallies and events.
  • Photos and videos of candidate speeches and commercials.
  • Photos from posts on other platforms (blogs, Facebook, etc.).
  • Images from campaign promotional materials (yard signs, stickers, flyers, etc.).
  • Images of volunteers or supporters with captions describing why they are working for or voting for the candidate.

Photo sharing helps provide transparency and give followers an ‘insiders’ view of the campaign. It can help voters learn more about a candidate on a personal level, too.

When posting image to any service, be sure to add good captions and appropriate hashtags. It is easier for others to share your images when you’ve already provided a good context for them.

Photo sharing accounts aren’t for everyone. If you have limited resources, focus on posting to Facebook, Twitter and your campaign website. If you don’t plan on maintaining other photo sharing accounts, don’t create them.

What Should Your Campaign Share On Pinterest?

Pinterest is a website that allows people to organize and share things found on the web. Users can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things.  It is basically a virtual pinboard – and a site that many politicians are using in their online marketing efforts.

A few years back, Pinterest has become one of the five most popular social networking sites in the U.S. At the time, a study found the site actually drives more traffic to blogs than Twitter. (It’s not quite the traffic driver today.)

Here are some ways campaign have used Pinterest effectively.

Top Tips for Pinterest Success

Is your campaign on Pinterest yet? Yes, it’s yet another social network to manage, but Pinterest is a bit different than the others. Pinterest is more visual than Facebook and Twitter. It enables users to share ideas, photos and anything one might find of interest to someone else. It’s a more image, less status social network.

Your ‘page’ on Pinterest is in the format of a push-pin bulletin board. You can pin videos, images, photos, etc., to your pinboard and share it with your followers. More and more content from Pinterest goes viral these days. Posted content is often liked to on Facebook or tweeted about on Twitter.

If you are unfamiliar with Pinterest, here are some top tips to help you get your campaign started with the service:
