Talk about everything happening at the same time. I’m sitting in a workshop with freelance creatives, including photographers and journalists, on networking via the web. Lo and behold – a free guide by PhotoShelter on Social Media for Photographers lands in my Inbox. It’s 55-pages long and you can download the report at PhotoShelter. This is the blurb:
“Social Media for Photographers is filled with actionable strategies that photographers can start using immediately. This comprehensive guide covers the ground rules every photographer should know about using social media, choosing where to participate, smart strategies to foster conversation, tips to increase social sharing and generate quality links, measurement, and tools that can help achieve maximum results.
“Whether you’re hoping to build your brand, manage client relationships and find new ones, generate more online image sales, improve your SEO for your photography website, or simply find inspiration – Social Media for Photographers will help you set these goals and determine how to best spend your time on key social media platforms. Plus, for each platform, we’ll look at smart metrics for your success and show you how to monitor them.”
I have to admit that I haven’t had a chance to look at Social Media for Photographers, so I’m offering it out to you in good faith. However, I will check it out over the weekend and feel free to let me know what your thoughts are on the guide. I’ve been in contact with PhotoShelter and will be interviewing someone from the organization later this month for the blog.
