Social Media, Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, etc... Necessary for today's professional?
Mar 21, 2013

How important is social media presence, social networking like Facebook, Twitter, blogging, Youtube, etc to today's photographer?

For the strictly B2B freelancer, eh...I don't think it means as much. Not as much as it means to a B2C or direct sales to client photog. Like a little league baseball photog or portrait or senior shooter or wedding shooter. Is having a social media presence really driving sales anywhere? What is the value of a social media presence? It it a facade?

Personally, I really don't want to get into Facebook or things like that. It's been said before, but it seems that on a free platform like Facebook, no one wants to actually pay money. It seems no one wants to pay money on the internet.

What's your take? Experiences?
