@Regrann from principal @amyprifti - TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH THIS PHOTO
@Regrann from @vinecreatives - If Rose Quartz and Serenity were a person or people, what would they look like? That was and is the concept behind our Pretty In Pantone series of shoots we do every year. Each year Pantone release their colour of the year and each year we shoot our interpretation of that colour. Last year's colour was Rose Quartz and Serenity and we wanted to see how these lovely pastel colours worked on these lovely dark skinned beauties. Representing the colours as sisters who complete and complement each other perfectly. We love how it turned out! Amazing group of talented creatives worked with us on this, great team, great work. @pantone

I've been talking about food so much I feel hungry just looking at my posts. Lol. When you guys say you are salivating, trust me, before you, I have πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ *sigh*

Anyways back to fashion. So usually I talk about taking your own images and the samples I give are called flat lays but these kind of pictures are good too: pictures that your customers/clients take. Reason? they are UGC (User Generated Content). What this means is simply when your audience or a customer uses your product, they take a picture of it and put it online.
There are many businesses that have grown drastically just by introducing UGC into their marketing strategy. The first thing of course is to have a great product.
____________
Give an incentive to your customers to post pictures of your products on Instagram and @mention you. Then repost them on your page. Its a great way to build community with your customers. More so, they'll feel closer to your brand. Incentives could be coupons, vouchers, discounts, hangouts e.t.c
People post thousands of images online, give your customers a reason to post your product or service and tag you.
