Create unique murals outside and inside
People like to take photos of the things they enjoy looking at. Sometimes this will be inside your business or shop, and sometimes we can use art on the external walls of our building to encourage user generated content. Remember to include handles or hashtags you want your audiences to use.
Create an Insta Wall
Picking one key wall to create something unique on could be the difference between news of your business spreading like wildfire, or burning out into ashes across social media. Whether you create a wing design for selfies, a branded frame for group photos or even just something unexpected like a wall covered in board games, create a space that deserves attention, and your customers won't let you down.
