As a modern photographer, your website, social media, and other online activities are vital to marketing, branding, client relationships, and lead generation.  This workshop will look at the online world as we move into 2016, offering current tips and tactics to make the most from your website and social media efforts.  As the online world changes, it's important to alter your internet activities to continue to reach the right audience.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • The most important content for your website
  • Why blogs are important for a photography website (probably not the reason you thought)
  • Current, updated best practices for search engine optimization (SEO), and why tactics from 2012-2013 are going to lead to massive failure in 2015-2016.
  • Identifying the best social networks for your photography business. Spoiler: it's probably not Facebook.
  • Balancing your online presence with your offline marketing and networking efforts
  • How to use online tools to provide better service to your clients before, during, and after the shoot
  • Email: the forgotten social network

You'll walk away from the workshop equipped with knowledge and suggestions for tools to help you grow your photography business in an increasingly-online world.

This class is PPA-accredited.  OPPA members will receive one OPPA education merit; PPA members will receive one PPA merit.
