Currently I have been in the internet industry for almost nine years and only recently have decided to make a push to turn my hobby of photography into a semi-professional career. With that I started to sign up for online forums and Facebook Groups related to the niche market that I was looking to break into.
After a few weeks of trolling these groups and forums I noticed that the topic of Search Engine Optimization and Social Networking was a common question amongst the Photographers. So naturally with my current experience as a seasoned Web Developer, I started to respond to some of these questions. Next thing I know, I’m getting emails and requests to help with some photographers websites.
So over the next couple weeks I am going to produce a series of 101 style blog postings relating to the topics of Search Engine Optimization, Social Marketing (which includes using Twitter, Facebook) to your advantages.
In closing I’m going to throw this right out there. In my industry I am in no way considered an SEO or Social Networking expert. I however have learned a lot of what I know about SEO and Social Marketing from trial and error, and have applied it to my own personal projects. I consistently have seen positive results to make me believe that I have an above-average knowledge on these subjects.
