Social Media has quickly changed the way people communicate and do business. If you're like most photographers you have Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts and maybe you've done a bit of blogging, but you haven't figured out how this fits into your marketing plan. You're not alone, long established media and advertising businesses were caught off guard as social media revolutionized their industry. Staying informed, making a plan and taking action is essential for anyone running a business in this new environment. In this presentation I will help you make sense of how these new tools work, show you photographers who are finding success with social media and inspire you to take action.
