5 Fun Ways to Use Social Media for Your Summer Cookout
June 18, 2015
Get everyone in on the fun with these cool new social media tricks
Keep it Social!
Keep the hashtag fun but short. It should stay consistent throughout all social media platforms. When hosting a summer cookout, you’re the disc jockey, the grillmaster, the mixologist, and the host. The hashtag will allow your friends to be the photographer and join the conversation.
There is a lot of hard work that goes along with planning a summer cookout, from trendy décor to your market trip. Tease your friends and upload a photo of your shopping basket from your trip to the local market.
If you prefer to dress really stylish, set the tone by Instagramming a photo of your outfit inspirations.
The night before your cookout, create a Snapchat story. Get your guests excited by showing them how you prep their cocktails.
There’s an entire DIY community on social media. Make sure to capture any DIY task performed, whether it’s the floral arrangement you created or the table runner you made with textiles sourced from the local fabric store.
Food porn has become a huge trend. Why not create a contest around it? Award a bottle of rosé for the road to the guest who food styles their plate the best and shares photos using the hashtag.
