While you're out soaking up the sun, take advantage of your everyday adventures by documenting your food, sightseeing and experiences to bank up evergreen content in your camera roll! You never know when it'll come in handy for brands later down the track. 

EAT, DRINK AND BE MERRY!

The app is overflowing with mouth-watering food and drink brands all year round, but these campaigns really crave content during summer.

The warmer months give you so many ways to snap the perfect foodie pic: picnics in the park, cocktails by the pool, dinner on the deck, brunch on the beach – the possibilities are endless!

Consider using Cinemagraphs or Boomerangs to add lil’ spice to your submission and capture those moving moments, like pouring milk in your coffee, drizzling syrup over your pancakes or cracking pepper on your smashed avo. 🤤

DOCUMENT YOUR EVENTS

While gettin’ out and about is always a popular pastime for influencers, it is at an all time peak during the summer season! The warm weather inspires all kinds of events - parties, functions, fashion shows, sports games, live music… the list goes on and on.

Brands used to only use celebrities to promote and raise interest in their events, these days though, they’re much more interested in passionate content creators pushin’ their promo.

Suss out campaigns for upcoming summer soirees, or simply document the glitz and glamour of your own summer events to use in the future.

SHARE YOUR SUMMER STORIES

In addition to giving your followers a glimpse into your summer lifestyle, Stories allow you to engage your followers multiple times a day, without having to actually post multiple times per day.
