      How to Start a Flickr Photo Account for Business Image Marketing

      Please Share this page!

        Flickr is a top global photography/image hosting website that is considered to be a photo social media network where photos of your business can get increased exposure plus drive traffic to your website.   It’s easy to upload photos and free to sign up, however I recommend allocated $25/yr to upgrade your account to a Flickr Pro membership.  This will increase your photo account storage room that will be able to feature all of your business photos to the world (your target markets) and keep them backed up in case something goes wrong with your computer.  Here’s a step by step walkthrough on how to start a Flickr photo account for business image marketing.

        Five steps to getting started on Flickr

        1. Go to flickr.com and click the Sign up button.

        2. You will be taken to a new page that requires you to fill in your name, choose a Yahoo email account that will become your username and select a password.  Please make note of all of your information, as this is what you will use to sign-in to Flickr.  (Note: The reason that it’s a Yahoo email account is because Yahoo owns Flickr, just like Google owns Youtube.)

        3. Once you fill out everything properly you will get a success page.

        4. Now you can go over to flickr.com once again and click on the button that reads Sign In.  Click in and you will be taken to a Yahoo sign-in page. Simply type in your yahoo email address and password and then click the purple Sign In button.

        5. Yay!  You have a free Flickr account started. Now the real fun begins once your logged into Flickr. You will find yourself at your main Flickr area “dashboard” where you now have the option to search other people’s photos globally, manage your profile and/or start uploading you photos.  I suggest you start by using the search bar in the upper right to find photos you would be interested in your industry or geography area.  This will show you people who are sharing their photos to start giving you an idea of the quality and quantity of photos.

                Social Media manager terms of serviceSo, you want to manage a bunch of Social Media Networks? Maybe you want to organize your own small business accounts or maybe you are in the social media rat race and have multiple clients. The single most important first step is to get to know every platform’s Social Media Terms of Service pages.

                This could take the better part of a week if you are being paid to do a very thorough job of reading all the fine print. You need to be the expert of all social media networks and all their ever changing most recent rules. I stress “recent rules” because another responsibility of a social media manager is to keep up to date on any changes to #SM TOS’s that occur.

                Since you have a lot of reading ahead of you, here is a handy reference of  the locations for the most popular social media networks. A sure way to impress your supervisors, or just to remind yourself what you are supposed to be the expert at, is to print this out and stick it somewhere really noticeable. Hopefully, your supervisor that hangs out over your shoulder will believe you’re on top of it.
