Instagram Schedule App Planoly, http://tiffanyfarley.com

I started using Planoly, formerly called Planogram, a little over a year ago now- and I cannot IMAGINE running my business without it now!

Instagram is key platform for marketing for me. I love to share images of my work, and connect with my followers there. But it’s also a huge time sucker if you’re not careful! I don’t know about you, but I need all the productivity help I can get. One of my huge goals for 2017 was to get more done well, in less time, so I can have more personal time away from my desk!

I currently manage THREE different Instagram accounts, and it’s a lot of work! Planoly was the game changer for me, so if you’r feeling really overwhelmed by trying to keep up with Instagram posts listen up!

Using Planoly allows me too:

  • Upload all of my planned content right from my computer. (don’t worry- there’s still an app for your phone!) 
  • Visualize my content with a grid, so I can get a good look at what images look well paired together. As an artist, my grid presentation is important to me!
  • Post content consistently and thoughtfully. Instead of always interrupting what I am working on to make a post, I am able to schedule batch scheduling during my week so I hardly have to think about it! When it’s time for a post to go live, I get a notification that takes literally 2 seconds to post.
  • Keep a library of images I plan to post later, so if I take a mobile picture with my phone and know that I will want to share it soon, I can upload it to Planoly as a draft to work with later.
  • PLAN MY STORIES! This is a brand new update that I am so in love with. Yes, I definitely believe there is a value of using the Instagram Stories in a “live” way- but I also share other images there too, and this allows me to plan ahead. When you are working with other vendors who need to be properly credited like we do at The Fount Collective, this allows me to plan their Instagram Story posts at the same time as their blog feature- saving me so much time! I’ve included their how to video so you can see how this new update works!

If you are feeling overwhelmed by this platform, but you know it’s an incredible fit for your business marketing, get in a system in your life and in your week that takes away the overwhelm and makes it a part of your workflow like any other steps. Planoly is hands down one of my FAVORITE business tools to stay on top of my game.

Portland, Yarmouth, Freeport Maine In Home Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.com

I loved photographing this beautiful in-home newborn session for a special project! I wish I could share more, but it will have to stay secret for now! We celebrated baby number four, and got as many of those sweet tiny babe kisses on black and white film as possible. I love in home newborn sessions for so many reasons. It allows the family to have a more restful morning by not having to pack up, thinking of everything they may need for a session elsewhere. It allows them to be comfortable in their own home, and for the photographs to be even more meaningful as they will also remember the very first house they brought their baby home to. They are always so special! I can’t wait to share more of this session!

Portland Maine Maternity ad Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley on The Bearded Tog Podcast

 

Well friends, I guess this is the week of interviews! Earlier this week I hopped on a webinar with my favorite Shanna Skidmore and the team at Once Wed to chat about pricing your creative business. Today, I have a podcast interview that just went live that I can share with you!

As someone who really loves to listen to business podcasts, it’s so crazy to hear my own voice on one! (like really crazy & weird!!) When Adam Mason of the Bearded Tog asked me to be a guest on his recently launched photographer podcast, I was really excited because I know just how much I personally learn from others on almost a daily basis through this free learning platform.

We chat about how I got started as a photographer, my journey into specialization and the turning points along the way, building your brand long term, traveling to clients, business growth, email marketing, and more!

You can listen to the episode HERE! If you are a podcast fan, be sure to subscribe to The Bearded Tog– I know I personally really enjoyed his previous interview with the really talented Abby Grace Photography – so be sure to listen to that episode as well. If you liked the episode, be sure to leave The Bearded Tog a review on iTunes- we all know what it’s like to launch something new and the work of trying to gain traction and be seen, and leaving a review on iTunes is like that first positive comment you got on your first Facebook Fan Page- it’s a big deal- and for podcasts it really helps others to find it! It helps iTunes know that they need to share this podcast because listeners are loving the content, so I would love for you to take two minutes to leave that review if you found the episode enjoyable and helpful!
