How To Use Done-For-You Recipes & Food Images In Your Business
Do you use recipes and food images in your business or on your blog? Are you finding it hard to take all the photos that you need and create enough recipes to be consistent on your blog?
I’d like to introduce you to Trish Lindemood. She owns KitchenBloggers and provides done-for-you recipes and food images. She creates the recipes herself and then she takes amazing food images for you to use in your business.
But how can you use these? Won’t you get in trouble using someone else’s recipes and food images on your blog? In most cases, this would be the case, but Trish creates this for you to use. There are some restrictions so make sure you’re checking her terms but you can do a lot with these.
Most of her recipes are made with healthy, whole ingredients – not only that but the Bite-Sized Bundles she creates do not have any added sugar or preservatives.
Ways To Use Done-For-You Recipes & Food Images In Your Business:
- How-to guides (on specific dishes – give more details then the recipe)
- Create a list of your favorite recipes (link to each recipe)
- Versus images (take two photos and post on one of your social media platforms to ask which are you a cake or cookie person (or a different engaging question)
- Grocery Shopping List
- Recipe Images (take an image or two that is provided and add the recipe on the image)
- Pinterest Pins
- Add food quotes (on the food images)
- Round-up list (make it themed and use your recipe blog post, as well as other bloggers recipes)
- Research and write about creating budget-friendly recipes (from the recipes)
- Blank recipe book with a few of your favorite recipes included
- Recipe series (Slow cookers, quick meals, busy parent meals, etc)
- Informational How-To Graphic
- Menu plans
- Recipe cards
- Instagram Stories
- Instagram Posts
- Blog Posts
- Step By Step Recipe Blog Post
- Food Challenge
- Behind the scenes social media posts (use the “in process” photos that you can add-on to some of the done-for-you recipes packs that you can purchase)
- Email Newsletter
- Food Newsletter
Some of these ways will take you only a few minutes or very little time to do and then some of this list will take you more time. Pick one of the strategies, start doing it, get into a habit and then move on to the next one.
Food is a topic that people enjoying talking about. They love to look at food images and they also like to try new ideas.
Take a look at this Decadent Desserts, Cakes & Cookies. Wouldn’t you be proud to use these amazing food photos?
If your blog isn’t about desserts – she has plenty of other packs to pick from. What about these Slow Cooker recipes and images:
You can also use done-for-you recipes and food images on so many different types of blogs and sites. Some examples would be health and wellness sites, lifestyle blogs, mom blogs, coaching blogs, and health lifestyle diet blogs.
If you don’t have recipes on your blog – you might want to consider adding them because people go online to get recipes all the time. That is my go-to when I’m looking up any kind of recipe.
Over the last few days, I’ve been making dough for all types of food – flatbread, rolls, and bread. Each time I search something different: easy rolls without yeast, easy no-knead bread, flatbread, sandwich bread recipes, etc.
I often look for quick and easy meals and recipes as well. I search for specific ingredient related recipes as well – depending on what is in my fridge.
You can use the done-for-you recipes with SEO to get in the search engines for people to find when they need it most. I would also create Pins and start using Pinterest for traffic as well. I normally go to the search engines but my sister-in-law starts on Pinterest, as I’m sure many people do.
You’ll find hundreds of recipes on KitchenBloggers that you can use to start creating a recipe index for your audience. Most of these recipes have beautifully photographed food images and some of them offer in-process so that you can make different types of content types on your blog.
You’ll find recipes for:
- Slow Cookers Recipes
- Instant Pot Recipes
- Sheet Pan Recipes
- Dessert Recipes
- Keto Recipes
- Whole30 Recipes
- Low Carb Recipes
- Meatless Recipes
- Breakfast Recipes
- 5-Ingredient Recipes
- Soups & Comfort Food Recipes
- And so much more….
You can take a look at all of these recipes on the KitchenBlogger site.
What you’ll need to do is decide what works with your audience, add them to your site, create PINS and publish them.
They are easy to work with. You can add stories at the beginning of the recipes or you can make a recipe only post.
