Caitlyn Barron will present the topic "Utilizing Social Media to Promote Your Photography." There’s an app for that, a platform for this, but where and how does it all work? Or does it? Together we’ll walk step-by-step through the finer points of what it takes to ready your imagery and content to post on Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram as seen through the eyes of a brand. This Learnshop is geared for those who are interested in learning how to market themselves via social learning the latest media insights of trends and forecasts of social media down to the understanding what all the hoopla is about for this “hashtag” thing.
