As a photographer, we are always being told how important it is to have a presence on social networking sites. I have accounts on the major sites, but haven’t really kept up to date with them and as such, the information isn’t correct and there aren’t any recent posts on them.
So today I have spent updating my profiles and posts and then I have linked them to my website through my neat little buttons.
The sites I have updated and included on my website are:
- Facebook: I have a page called Blush Photography – South Yorkshire for my lifestyle business. In the past I have always been on top of this page and updated regularly, but I have slipped with this in the past year. Also, I had nearly a thousand members, but when Facebook re-did the groups last year and changed them to the new format, I kept the content of the page, but lost all of my members. This disheartened me as I had to start from square one with it and that’s when I stopped updating it.
- Twitter: I have a twitter account – @skyebecks – and I go in fits and bursts with it. I added a new tweet today and I’m going to try and do at least one a day.
- Linked In: I had registered on Linked In over a year ago – http://www.linkedin.com/pub/rebecca-sykes/53/901/5b0 -, but still hadn’t set up a profile or added any information about myself. This has taken me the most time, but I have now completed my profile, filled in education history, added a picture and included information about my business. There is more I need to do on this profile, but at least now it is active and updated and I can keep adding to it as I go along.
- You Tube: I have an account with You Tube, but at the moment, I only have my time lapse on there. I have embedded this onto my actual website, but as time goes on, I would like to do more time lapses and even try my hand at a stop motion. So I thought I would benefit from having a link to my You Tube page from my Website in the long run.
