This month the PhotoServe Editors would like to guide our audience to a learning tool that can help with the fantastic opportunities that Social Media and networking offer to connect and promote photographers and creatives to a stronger and more successful business. The first step to using Social Media is knowing how to use it – all the DOs and Don’ts – to reap all the benefits. The American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), the premier association for the world's most respected and professional photographers, can provide some of the most informative details to help with career and smart business choices..
For example, did you know
that there are three main types of blogging platforms? WordPress,
Blogger and Typepad offer traditional, full-service long-form blogging
platforms. Tumblr and Posterous are designed for short-form blogging.
Micro-blogging is very popular and the most widely known micro-blog
platform is Twitter. Which one is right for you?
ASMP is a leader in business education for imaging professionals and wants to give you that edge by offering its Social Media Guide: Marketing + More — FREE of charge.
