Social media inspiration – black dot styled stock edition


Finding things to post on social media every day can be exhausting! Using styled stock images makes everything a trillion times easier – trust me. Here are three examples I created for the Black Dot Instagram page and why they work.


  1. Promote an event, sale or activity. Social media is made for catchy links. Take advantage and promote your business or shop with a great graphic to tell everyone what is going on. Make it simple and eye catching and make sure your text gives them all the key details.


2. Promote a blog post or some great information your customers need to know. Got something great to share with your best customers? Use social media to link them right to it. Use a catchy headline or leading question and make sure they have to click through to see what you’ve got to say.


3. Post an inspirational quote or message. Yes I know these can be cheesy but a positive little graphic sometimes can just make your day. Get on board and stay authentic by saying something that is true to your brand and don’t forget to make it cute and pinnable.

Styled stock is easy, quick and makes your social media look super professional! Check out our Etsy shop today to see if a styled stock image is right for your brand.



A few pins – Friday edition

It has been a really busy week but I’ve been trying to take time out for myself! My new favourite habit – 10 minutes pinning a day, usually late afternoon or early evening. It is quite therapeutic! Follow my Love Ideas Ink boards here.
