PhotoShelter (http://www.photoshelter.com), the worldwide leader in photography portfolio websites, sales and marketing tools for photographers, today released a new free educational guide, The Photographer’s Guide to Twitter. This guide is filled with insights to help photographers use Twitter as a powerful marketing tool to engage potential customers, grow a quality following, and advance their photography careers. The Photographer’s Guide to Twitter can be downloaded directly here: http://bit.ly/jm35rltys.
PhotoShelter is releasing this guide in partnership with the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), the premier trade association for the world’s most respected still and motion photographers, and the leader in promoting photographers’ rights.
“For many photographers looking to expand their network, Twitter has been the key to breaking into their marketplace, connecting with photography fans and potential clients, meeting experts in their field of interest, and staying on top of industry news,” says PhotoShelter CEO Andrew Fingerman. “That’s why it’s crucial for photographers to take advantage of the service to help highlight their work and establish a voice in the industry.”
Adds ASMP’s Director of Content Strategy, Judy Hermann, “Used strategically, Twitter can be a powerful promotional, networking and audience building tool but, like many other social media platforms, it’s not without some risks and potential liabilities. The information in this guide will help photographers make smart choices about how to use Twitter to grow their businesses and protect their assets.”
In this guide, photographers will also learn:
- 10 ways to grow a Twitter following and increase engagement – including sharing behind-the-scenes photos and tweeting about what’s trending
- Top Twitter features for businesses that will help you market your work better
- Legal considerations before using Twitter, plus best practices to help keep your work safe
