If you're a florist, consider not only having your flower arrangements photographed but using them for fashion editorials and set designs. then while you are building on that project, capture footage and explain to your audience the different flowers used and their properties. If you're a nightclub consider having a resident event photographer for a while, this way the photographers' style of images become a part of your brand and when the content does the rounds on Facebook everyone knows it is you.
I have worked with event companies before where I have developed a certain style of editing custom to their brand. Here are two examples of brand photography. On the right are images for The 90s Brunch and the image set below for The Garage Brunch. As you can clearly see even though the event was curated by the same company the branding is what keeps them apart.

I feel people often forget that social media is a visual medium and it's important to use brand photography to remind them.
