Using Flickr To Show Off The Cars You Have Detailed
Flickr is an image-hosting and video-hosting website, web services suite, and online community that’s now owned by Yahoo! In addition to being a popular website for users to share and embed photographs, the service is widely used by bloggers to host images that they embed in blogs and social media.
The benefit to auto-detailing businesses, of course, is that owners can upload photos and products and services and tag them so they show up when that particular detailing service is searched online in your territory. Flickr also enables you to organize your finest detail work in photos and present them in “sets” or groups of photos that fall under the same heading. These sets can be displayed as a slideshow, offering potential clients a close-up view of your detailing prowess. As a bonus, these photos can also be embedded into your web site.
Flickr provides both private and public image storage. A user uploading an image can set his account’s privacy settings to determine who can view the image. Private images are visible by default only to the account holder, but they can also be viewable by others when changing the privacy settings.
Flickr is another social media networking tool that enables you to promote your auto-detailing services by using images and videos on the Internet without breaking the bank. This inexpensive advertising platform should encourage you to take before and after pictures of every car you detail. All you need to get underway is sign up for a free Flickr account and start uploading pix! It’s that easy.
Each photo can be titled and tagged by the name of the services you provided. Not only does this impart important information about the photos, but titling and tagging each image with a description makes it easier to be seen by the search engines.
