5 ways to grow your photography business on social media

5. It’s not just about Facebook and Twitter

Don’t forget some of the other great free social media tools.

Pinterest allows you to ‘pin’ and share some of your best recent images, and it’s now the fastest growing social media service in the world.

You can also pin images of behind the scenes stuff, such as how you set up for a landscape shoot, or plan a wedding.

Last but not least, LinkedIn is a fantastic business networking tool.

You can rapidly build up a large list of contacts and it’s very easy to publicise yourself and your current customer base/awards etc.

There is a massive photographic community on LinkedIn and many jobs are ONLY advertised here, particularly by smaller companies.

Remember the etiquette though — don’t pester some representative of a big organisation or company to link with you on LinkedIn if you’ve never properly met them before.

You’re not a spammer, right?
