Social Media for Photo and Video Pros

with Richard Harrington

Video: Welcome

My name is Rich Harrington and in this course we're going to be taking an overview look at social media, and how it benefits both photographers and video professionals. Now there's a lot to social media and chances are you're already an active participant in at least one site. What I like to do is give you some idea of the impact of social media, as well as some general strategies that will help you be more effective with your posts and what you share. Now there's a lot to social media and it's deceivingly simple. When you first look at it just seems like sites where people hangout and share their stuff, but if you're a bit more strategic, and think before you post, you can actually start to see some real-world professional results.
