Most photographers I know have a Facebook page that they keep updated regularly. And with 8 gazillion users (I'm guestimating here :), your clients will most likely have their own Facebook profiles they update regularly. With the most shared thing on Facebook being images I figured it was about time to give photographers a new way to showcase their photos and bring some originality to the standard single images being shared.
Now, of course you can put your logo onto a standard sized photo and share it on Facebook, or send it to your client for them to share. But often times these images are uploaded as cover photos which don't fit the horizontal landscape size or they are shared on the timeline and cut-off again. This can be frustrating and for people who scroll through timelines, images can be quickly overlooked.
Another issue is that some clients (not all) will want to share low-res photos that you gave to them on a disk for proofing purposes on Facebook, which end up looking bad and either have zero branding on them or they've been cropped off. It's sad, but it does happen.
Now what if you provided unique and perfectly sized graphics your clients could use immediately on their Facebook profiles? Do you think your clients would use any of the graphics below once they are customized with their new photos from their photo shoot? Do you think they'd be excited to use something customized for them, over standard images you probably already send? I think so.
