This post is for small business owners and entrepreneurs. To my wedding and portrait clients, feel free to skip over this blog post, or enjoy a conversation about a very interesting topic.
Social Media (for example, Facebook, blogging, Twitter, YouTube, Blip.TV and LinkedIn) are a huge part of business today. The traditional forms of marketing are now being complemented, and, in some cases, replaced, with these new, instant-notification, real-time marketing/networking avenues. Businesses today who are participating in the online conversation are seeing huge advantages. Adam White, who’s wedding I photographed last year, has created an amazing resource for small business owners to help them in the transition to social media, social networking, and the “now” economy. He has a website name Social Media Niagara, and he hosts monthly seminars on topics such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn. At the end of this month, I am co-teaching a seminar with him on the topic of “YouTube”, so check back here soon for more information on that.
I had the pleasure of hanging out with Adam last week for an interview on social media and how I am using it to build my business. Adam’s uploaded the video to Social Media Niagara, but I’ve also embedded it here for your convenience:
Check it out and let me know what you think. If you’re interested in this topic and would like further consulting/coaching on it, be sure to get in touch with Adam. He is doing social-media consulting for small businesses, and he’ll do wonders for your company!
