We've been talking a lot about social media lately with our "Be More...Social" blog series. So far, we've provided some social media tips for photographers on why you should get involved with social media (and the lingo you should know), the top six social platforms to consider using and how to develop a social media strategy.
We hope these blog posts have gotten you pumped up to be involved with social media (or if you're already involved, we hope you got some great ideas), but if you're looking for even more social media advice, consider watching the PPAedu online course "Best Practices for Social Networking."
In this course, instructor Lindsay Adler, who authored the book "Social Networking Essentials for Photographers," will share her 10 best ways to be efficient and effective with your social networking efforts. Topics she'll cover include Search Engine Optimization (for more SEO advice, watch the "Pitfalls of SEO" course with Brett Snyder, Director of SEO at Nebo) and how to become a resource for your target audience.
So what's PPAedu? It's the latest member benefit from PPA - a personalized, online education platform with over 150 HD videos available 24/7 and more being added every month! If you're a PPA member the video of the class is available to watch at your convenience 24/7... at no extra cost. For those who aren't PPA members, you can always subscribe to PPAedu and enjoy this big educational buffet.
On the PPAedu dashboard, once you answer a series of questions that focus on your business, you'll get your personalized recommendations for courses in four technical and four business categories of online courses. You'll then be able to watch any of these courses, tutorials, classes, coaching sessions, etc. on-demand for free, as long as your PPA membership or PPAedu subscription is valid.
