Looking for better results from your social media presence? Join us online as Jennifer Casey speaks with us about how we can get the most out of all that time we spend "working" on Facebook/Google+. We will be using Google+ Hangout's 'On Air' feature so that we can accommodate everyone who wants to participate.

Here is a preview of some of the information that will be covered during this online presentation on social media.

Hi everyone!

I'm lucky to have connected with Jon Beard through multiple mutual photography friends and I'm very happy to collaborate with Exposure Roanoke. I wanted to share a little bit about myself. I'm a little bit of an everything photographer in the Annapolis MD area. I shoot a lot of landscapes, portraits, and offer photography workshops, workshop trips, and private lessons. Over the last few years I have gained a lot of experience and insights to offer on the topic of social media.

Here is an example of the growth I've experienced in a short time because of social media.

-In it's first year my meet up group Naptown Photo ( http://www.meetup.com/naptownphoto ) has grown to over 350 members.

-In the last 18 months my Facebook fan page has grown to over 2000 fans. ( http://www.facebook.com/photographybyjennifercasey )

-I have also created a Facebook fan page to promote Maryland Photographers focused on cross exposure potential. The Maryland Beauty page ( http://www.facebook.com/marylandbeauty ) is nearing 2000 fans as we approach it's 1 year mark.

-To encourage portrait growth in my photography business I created a separate portrait photography fan page. ( http://www.facebook.com/jennifercaseyportraits ) This page had over 350 fans in it's first month.

-I am selling prints online consistently and just sold out of 2014 calendars. 90% of my prints sales are online and to people I haven't met. They connected with me though social media and purchased online.

If it weren't for Facebook and social media my photography business would not be what it is today by any means. I really just wanted to give you all a little background on myself and my social media growth over the last few years.

During our talk I will share a lot of information with you all including my favorite tips and tricks. What to post, when to post it, and how to know what your fans like and dislike through post insights. We'll talk about the various social media platforms that are available to you and how to choose which to focus on. When we are done you will have a lot of information to soak in but you should have a good understanding on where to start and what to focus on.

Because this is a google hangout on air it will be broadcast and recorded on youtube. Jon will post the link for viewing the broadcast in real time. It will also be available to view for two weeks for those who missed it or those who would like to watch it again. I will also provide a PDF of the most important aspects of social media marketing for photographers so that you all will have materials to refer back to.

If anyone has any questions that they would liked covered please leave it in a comment below.

Again thanks for inviting me to share with Exposure Roanoke!

-Jen Casey
