If you haven’t started yet or are still in the process, January is a good time to kick your planning into gear for this year’s marketing strategy, which should include new or refreshed branding photos and seasonal branding photos. So, what is seasonal branding photos?
Why do Seasonal Branding?
Seasonal branding takes your brand to the next level by connecting it to what is happening now; like current trends, seasons, holidays, weather, etc. It's a way to connect to your clients in a personal, real-time experience. The best way to do this is through brand photos. Brand photos express the emotions and mood of a holiday while also showcasing your brand in a new way.
What are the benefits of Seasonal Brand Photos?
-> The most common reason is for business owners to showcase their seasonal products and/or services or limited editions.
-> Keep your content fresh with photos that set the tone and mood for special times like using autumn colors in fall and beachy vibes in the summer months.
-> Seasonal content is powerful when it exposes your brand values. People are drawn to businesses whose values align to their own. This creates personal connection that can build into a business relationship and more.
-> Have fun with seasonal photos. These photos are perfect for showing off your own style whether it is playful, trendy, glamorous, sporty…and they are sure to capture the attention of your target audience.
