Using online resources to drive your business

Technology, Tutorials

A few days ago PDN (Photo District News) magazine published an article titled “The Five Biggest Photographers on the Internet“.  In this article, they interviewed 5 iconic photographers about how they use online resources such as Facebook, Twitter and Flickr to drive their business.  One of the photographers, Christopher Becker (http://www.beckersblog.com) is my personal icon when it comes to wedding photography and self-promotion.  He is an incredibly talented photographer who managed to build an amazingly profitable wedding photography business and is generally considered one of the highest-paid wedding photographers in the world. I decided to learn from TheBecker and from the others and expanded my online presence to Facebook and Flickr.  From now on, I`ll be posting my photographs not only on this side and on WideOpenLens.com like I`ve been doing so far – my photographs will also appear in my Facebook album and in my Flickr photostream.
