Blogging. Facebooking. Tweeting. Pinning. Scoping. Chances are you know what at least 4 of these are. Social media is as much, if not more, a part of any photographer’s business as taking actual photos.
While social media is enjoyable for the most part, it can be a bit daunting when combined with all of the other aspects of running a business. Just like anything, the more you feel like you HAVE to do, the less you want to!
Furthermore, with new platforms popping up seemingly on a weekly basis, social media can be overwhelming! I get asked all the time by photographers, “Where should I spend my time on social media? Where should I spend my money?”
Well, I am very excited to let you all know about an amazing blog series starting this week! Myself and 6 other amazingly talented marketers/ photographers will be sharing our best social media tips for photographers.
The knowledge and talent between these women is pretty astounding, so be sure to follow all of their blogs (listed below) so you don’t miss a post.
Without futher ado, let me introduce our Killer Social Media for Photographers Blog Series Lineup!
