Pictures!!!! They are so very important....the clearer we can see your cake the better. This does not mean a professional photographer, there are many help videos on this matter so take a few minutes and watch one. My backdrops are just wrapping paper stuck to my wall with tape, you don't have to be fancy. I also have photoshop, but pic monkey and a few other sites can help do the same thing like to add watermarks and just correct coloring if need be. First impressions are the same for cakes. When people have 16 pictures to choose from on a page you want your cake to stand out so make it a good one, it really does help. Also remember watermarking is not just so people can't steal you pictures it is also advertising. I don't know how many times a client has sent me a picture of a cake but it has no watermark so I have no idea who to contact to ask for permission to re-create or to give design credits to. Watermarking allows for people to see you are the designer of that cake.... that is super important people, that is exposure... at least in my opinion!
So here are a few tips I use that hopefully will help you all if you are having trouble getting seen here on Cakes décor. I don't know if these next steps help honestly, but I use them religiously so maybe it does, heck worth a shot I say, lol!!!
Tags....I don't post any cake without using at least 10 tags, get creative they all help. If it is a pink ruffled cake then say pink cake, girl cake, girlie cake, ruffle cake, pretty in pink cake, pink ruffle cake....every tag is a good tag and help you to come up in google searches as well, oh and make sure one of the tags is your name or business name. Post to cakesdecor first then share that picture using the share button to your facebook pages. That way it will be the first time people see your cake and they are more likely to click on it. Use the "Tweet" and "pin it" buttons, even if it is only for your cakes. If you don't have Twitter or Pintrest create one just so as you can share your cakes.
