You can share special offers, new services, and connect with them on a regular bases. Styled stock mockups are perfect for promoting your email list. You can overlay an image of your email/newsletter opt-in page, share it on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and direct new people to sign up for your email list.

PROMOTE A NEW PRODUCT 

Now that you are using mocks-ups to grow your email list, you can now use mock-ups to share your new products or services. One of my favorite ways to use mocks-up is to overlay pdfs for e-courses. Whether you have an e-course, an e-book, a work guide, a biz guide, a cheat sheet... you can overlay them on to a mock-up and share them with your customers and audience. 

PROMOTE YOUR WORK

Are you an artist or a calligrapher, or maybe you just love sharing quotes? You can promote your work with mockups. Or if you're a lifestyle blogger you can share your favorite quotes. Leave a lasting impression with your customers and overlay one of your favorite designs over a mock-up.

Because each styled stock image is high-res you can use them in your social media accounts as banners. You can get creative and add text, or use a mock-up and add your own design work. You can even create a banner to use across all of your social media accounts to create brand consistency. See below of an example I did for the Elah Tree Facebook page

QUALITY AND CONSISTENCY ON INSTAGRAM 

Social media, whether it's Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest, are great for engaging with our customers and audience. We can create brand consistency, share new products, share new services, and build community. I think as business owners, creating quality and consistency on Instagram can sometimes be tough because it takes time. Curating quality images take time and if we're not great at styling props or using a camera it can even be discouraging and frustrating. Styled stock is perfect for building brand consistency on Instagram. Another great thing about styled stock is you can purchase a single image and crop it a variety of ways to get even more!
