Tonight I attended a presentation by Keven Elliff, a local business and marketing consultant. He spoke at the Jefferson County Library in Port Hadlock. Keven gave a very informative presentation on social networking and covered a lot of different mediums in a short period of time. He discussed Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and Ning which is one I hadn't heard of.
I actually hadn't heard of any of these until I attended the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International Convention in Las Vegas in March. Of the 12,000 attendees I felt I was one of the few that didn't have a Facebook account, Blog daily and use Twitter to keep up with my friends. Since March I opened a Facebook account which is a great way to keep up with my family back in Wisconsin. Several months ago I started this Blog, using my Google account, and a couple months ago I created a Twitter account. With Twitter I'm able to follow some of my favorite photographers like Joe McNally and view specials with several of the vendors including those that offer canvas prints that I now offer my clients.
Keven has a Blog filled with lots of great information on marketing and links with even more articles and info.
