We know the massive collection of photography social media templates we have in our shop can be overwhelming – especially for photographers who want to get their Instagram branded and beautiful, but are starting from scratch. So we’ve decided to put together a list of MUST HAVE SOCIAL MEDIA TEMPLATES for those of you who are ready to elevate your brand presence on your social media platforms while saving a ton of design time too!

Let’s talk about the four main places to focus on for an elevated IG presence:

  1. Bio: this is your online shop window, so don’t let it go unnoticed! Most photographers use the single url space to post their website, but this could actually hurt your conversion rate instead of boost it.
  2. Highlights: these are the nuggets of featured content on your IG that will help your potential clients see what you want them to, no matter how long ago you posted it. It also allows you to categorize your content so you can add to it at any time, all in one place.
  3. Posts: this is your permanent content home and where your brand can post high value education, engaging captions, session sneak peeks, and your portfolio billboards.
  4. Stories: these are where you can post time relevant information, engage with your audience using IG stickers, post behind the scenes of your sessions, and cross promote your posts for more views and engagement.

Now that we’ve gone over those prime pieces of Instagram real estate, let’s discuss what A-List templates can really help your brand in those specific places:

IG BIO: Social Links

Instagram Templates for Photographers

Why not EXPAND the one link real-estate that Instagram gives you in your bio? Imagine not having to use a third party app to send your IG audience to a plain white link page with buttons. Imagine being able to send your IG audience to a customized & beautifully branded IG quick link page with your images on it and the quick links to where you want them to go. That is what SOCIAL LINKS is all about! We created these templates with photographers in mind to specifically host their own IG quick links on their own website with the ability to showcase their work to further motivate their audience to book with them.

You need these templates if…

  • you are using a third party site to host your IG quick links
  • you’re still sending your IG link to your website’s home page
  • you want to hook your IG audience when they click on your bio link
  • you want a more custom bio link page with images & beautiful design
  • you want to send your IG audience to multiple specific pages on your site

What’s included? We offer three different design options to complement your brand.
