Small World: How SEO and Social Media Close the Gap Between You and Your Fans

They say it’s a big world, but it’s not always true: Photographers (and anyone, really) on the internet are coming to know that search engines and social media are two extremely important ways to bring the world – and new clients – right to your doorstep.

Please join us for our upcoming podcast and webinar that will help you be a better, more reachable photographer on the web.

Plus, read to the end to see how you can use social media to win $50 of SmugMug subscription credit!

Social Media Basics with Aaron Hockley

We’ve recently recorded a podcast all about social media. In it, we define what social media is, discuss how social networking can help your photography business by meeting your mentors to finding new clients. From getting started to becoming a pro with social media– we cover everything!

Aaron Hockley is a professional photographer with a strong tech background, and founding organizer of a conference for WordPress bloggers. He knows the detailed ins and outs of social media for photographers, and we sat down with him to hear his thoughts on common social media questions.

We ask the following:

  • How can social media help a photographer?
  • What do you think the first steps are in jumping into using social media for a photography business?
  • Can you rank some of the social media platforms you use in order and how often you use them?
  • How do you integrate social media into your work day?
  • To share or not to share?
  • What mistakes have you made along the way with social media?
  • How do you measure success?
  • How do you stay current on social media changes, news, research and methodologies?
