Recently, after spending a few minutes answering questions about marketing on Facebook for a group of photographers, I was left with the uneasy feeling that social media should really come with an instruction manual. Instead, it’s been kind of thrown at us as if we should instinctively know the rules of how to use it properly.

Like so many other things in our lives, there’s a certain assumption about social media that using it for business ought to feel like second nature.

I mean, it’s a collection of online networking platforms where we can be social with our customers – how much more obvious does it have to be?

The trouble is, I don’t think it’s really all that obvious at all, especially if we look at how so many photographers are trying to use it to promote their business.
Sadly, on the whole, I’m not sure we’re doing a very good job of putting social media to great use for marketing.

In fact, by trying so hard, we often make it even less likely that people will hire us. Often, we’re overly promotional or blatantly trying to get our social media friends and followers to turn themselves into customers directly so they can pose in front of our cameras in exchange for money.

In this episode we look at how we can use social media networks as part of a larger marketing strategy, rather than seeing them as separate or standalone tools.
