Online Etiquette for Wedding Photographers

wedding photographyIf there is one important aspect of online activity that people should be looking into, whether they are wedding photographers or not, is the observance of online etiquette. There are certain social standards to be observed when it comes to the in person interactions and the same thing should be observed when it comes to online interactions as well. Although the experience and the medium can turn out to be something extremely different, the interactions are still more or less the same, although not as direct as how the in person interactions usually pan out when it all comes down to it.

Keep things current

If you are a fairly new wedding photographer and you would like to work on growing your social media profiles or online presence in a way or so, you should start on a reality check at first. You need to make sure that you are able to really keep things current and that you are fairly sensitive as well to the way that you handle yourself online in pretty much the same way that you handle yourself in person. A lot of people tend to get disconnected they moment that they get behind their phones and behind their computers and although this isn’t necessarily supposed to happen, it is a reality that is currently happening.

Keep posts of high quality

First off, although you will be required to post on your social media profiles on a daily basis or fairly frequently, you will need to make sure that you are able to keep your posts high quality. The quality of your content should come first and foremost. Quality is something that should always come up top above everything else. You can have tons and tons of posts but if they are fairly random and they don’t really hold value to the audience that you are trying to share them to, it will all be futile at the end of the day. Always work on producing great content as much as possible because people will keep following you and more and more people will end up following you if they know for a fact that they will be able to get something out of it.

Stay polite

It is important that you are able to stay polite all throughout the time that you are navigating online. Although it would be important for you to make sure that you are able to spark some kind of engagement or form of discourse with your followers as well as with the other potential followers and clients out there, you must be careful enough not to end up spamming them in the process.

Avoid sending reminders and spam messages

Don’t badger people by keeping on sending reminders for them to accept the friend requests that you have been sending them. Another thing for you to avoid is sending them a bunch of spam messages that you have copy pasted and sent as well to a bunch of other followers of your page or of people that you would like to follow your social media profiles. Keep the conversation light and keep it coherent. That’s how wedding photographers have turned out to gain success in social media.
