This will be the last Bro-Sis Photography Marketing update for little while. I’m happy to say that the Madison event was beyond successful and we couldn’t be happier! It sounds like we’ll be doing some future workshops for photographer groups as well as more speaking engagements. Special thanks to Lew Everling who spoke the morning session.
It’s tough to present about search marketing, local search and social media in just two hours. There’s no way to present a “how to” session as that would take a whole week. However, we were able to “demystify” the concepts and common fallacies for these smart photographers. @JillWhalen would be proud because we did our part to take the BS out of absolutely everything.
I wish I wrote down their names, but a married couple from Wisconsin Dells came up to me afterward and thanked both Heather and I so very much! They get the big-box sales calls and pitches, they vaguely understand the concepts and now have a clear path of what they need to do in search/social as professional photographers. Thank you!
More thanks goes to Krystal Stankowski from Krystal Images Photography for her help to put this on. After the event, I sat with her at the hotel’s business center computer to show things we talked about including Google Alerts, Facebook Pages and grey-hat anchor text. 🙂
Ok, a picture story…
Here’s Heather talking about the difference between Facebook profiles and Facebook Pages.
Being pretty passionate on how to easily create your own Google Local Business Center for free while other companies literally charge thousands of dollars to do it for you.
Talking about good Twitter examples while Heather’s loading a hilarious cartoon parody video of Twitter. You can see the parody video at Twouble with Twitter.
Awesome audience during a break
Lew Everling in a fantastic morning presentation.
Fantastic presentation from Lew Everling. The whole day brought some sweet synergy. I look forward to co-presenting with him again.
