Work on your visual identity

Publish appealing content on Facebook

On Facebook, video content works much better (click on the image to see the video):

If you have a more dense content to publish, favor Facebook. Type a concise introductory text (without going over 100 characters preferably - except for a particular occasion) : if your texts are too long, they may not be read.

Once you have written your introductory text, insert a link that directs to an article of your choice (press, blog, etc.), or you have penned (published on your website, or blog, etc.).

Publish appealing content on Instagram

Instagram is all about publishing pictures. However, you can play around with these guidelines to stand out from the crowd.

Publish appealing content on Twitter

On Twitter, the content you publish must necessarily be very short and concise. It is a channel for simple and quick information.

You can, for instance, keep art amateurs informed concerning your exhibitions and more generally your news :

In making sure the content you publish is distinct from one social media to the next, you will encourage users to follow you on each of your social media pages. Pay attention to what others around you publish, they may have put in place a trending practice on social media that you have not yet caught on to!
