Welcome to Your New Favorite Photography Blog
Photographers, this new blog is for you! “Another photography blog”, you might ask. Indeed, the Web is full of articles produced by talented folks, who discovered they were as nimble-fingered with a keyboard as with their DSLR. You can find quality content for virtually all genres, professional techniques or photo equipment. Yet, there is one crucial topic that has been left (almost) unexplored: how to build a strong online presence as a photographer.
For better or for worst (did someone say selfies?), the Internet has become a central part of everybody’s life, particularly for photographers. Today, new clients are more likely to contact you through your online portfolio and devour your pictures on your social accounts. Speaking of eating, this blog’s devoted team will prepare two articles per week just for you! That’s right. Delicious, hearty, yet easy to digest, we’ve got the magic potion to help grow your online visibility. If you don’t want to miss it, you simply have to subscribe here – we deliver straight to your inbox, no tips needed!
What’s on the menu? Glad you asked! As a starter, we’ll teach you how to create a complete photography website. Being an artist, your main desire is to showcase your talent in a unique way and to do that, you need a website that resembles no other. Our upcoming web design articles, tailored for photographers’ needs, will show you how to create a photo portfolio that is the true emanation of your persona on the Internet. And since you don’t want to rest on your laurels, we’ll also let you in on secret tips and features to improve your masterpiece.
Now comes the main dish. Once your website is created, you’ll want to get the word out and bring in some traffic. Indeed, your site will serve as your business card and will help get you more clients. In parallel, you’ll try to catch the biggest fish of all: Google. In other words, you’ll need to learn the basics of online promotion. The problem? You were probably born with a camera in your hands, but you may have left your PhD in SEO back in your mom’s belly. Fear no more! This is the kind of knowledge that we have, and we’re super excited to share it with you. In a nutshell: on this blog, you’ll learn the “what”, the “why” and the “how” of the tools a 21st century photographer needs to know in order to succeed online.
Finally, because no good meal is complete without dessert, the Wix Photography Blog will also include fresh showcases, interviews, feature stories and more to keep your brain bubbling and your creativity flowing. Bon appétit!
