Show the World: Promoting Properties with Tiny Planet Photos

A new photography trend has emerged, and it’s rocking the world of social media. Tiny Planet allows users to easily transform their photos into miniature floating globes, capturing scenery in an eye-catching way without breaking the bank.

For property managers, Tiny Planet offers a creative solution to a common social media struggle, as many companies don’t have the resources to invest in expensive photography equipment or enough time to experiment with creative shots. Oftentimes, the alternative is a collection of drab, poorly lit photos posted on social media channels, doing little to showcase their property and engage an audience.

Instead of snapping an ordinary picture for today’s Instagram post, create a Tiny Planet photo. With one of several mobile apps, you can spend only a few dollars and have unique, shareable images in a matter of seconds. Display your property’s fountain, pool, or common area surrounded by trees and blue skies with a quick snap on your iPhone or Android. And since many apps provide built-in editing technology, you can ensure high picture quality.

Not only do Tiny Planet photos give your social media audience a glimpse into your property, but they show prospective tenants you’re innovative and in touch with the latest social trends. Make sure to include #tinyplanet in your post, and follow the hashtag for inspiration and ideas.
