Tips for success

  • Before and after photos tell an excellent story, but be sure they are clearly marked as "before" and "after".
  • Always ask your client for permission to post a job photo.
  • If your client agrees to the posting, tag them in the job photo so it appears in their social media feeds as well (for example, "Thanks to @client_name for giving us the opportunity to work on another successful sink installation!").
  • Proofread and make sure there are no typos! Potential clients judge attention to detail, even in social media.
