What to post on media sites

Hi,  I remember in the last Seller's Bootcamp we learned tips of what to post on specified media sites, so if there's a link, can you re-post the link?

Specifically, I have accounts on Facebook and Instagram.  What types of photos should be posted on either site? 
Normally, I post everyday pics and new products on Instagram, and keep Facebook for new products only.

Is this the optimal way to do it?

Hi Red Rock Designs,

I suspect its different for everyone and probably depends on who your followers are on FB & Instagram, and what they like when you share on those 2 social media sites. Your friends and family would want to see more personal images, while potential buyers would be more interested in your latest work and upcoming sales.

I don't have either but I'm opinionated, so I'm going to toss in my wild guess!

Truly, I don't think it matters much what outlets you use for what purpose.  What matters is who you wan to attract.

Having said that, I think it is common for Facebook to have an element of commerce.  There are a lot business pages on Facebook.  So, those who frequent it might be more predisposed to product awareness types of posts.  I would recommend continuing with the new product there (and announcing sales and vendor booths and consignment shops).

Instagram seems more like a sharing-the-moment kind of site.  I wonder if audiences there would respond better to pieces "in action".  LIke: Here's someone wearing my XYZ with their ABC outfit or with a specific colour scheme or achieving a special look.  Perhaps a more demonstrative view of your work?  Even showing how your display in a brick'n'mortar shop looks is more like real life that just product.

Just thoughts.

Thank  you both for responding.  I'm starting to see what other vendors on media sites are posting as well, to get a clearer idea.
