The New Strategy
From the earlier data, we can deduce: • Photography and lover are the keywords. • People are more engaged on the photographs posted, they even post their similar photographs, they are more interested in amazing photography through the camera rather than anything else. • Not all of them are professionals, most of them are newbies but are passionate about photography, which is well stated by the type of questions they ask.
Rational Let’s build an emotional connect. Inspire all, those who aspire. While other brands are going on a more rational route. Emotional
