Bulletproofing Efforts

We all know how fast social media changes. Remember MySpace? Social media are platforms. Although some have advantages over others, the strategies are virtually the same.

Understanding this concern — what if I build up my Facebook following and it one day collapses? — I dedicated an entire chapter to methods in securing your digital space in the event of a change of mediums.

Many of the successes I’ve had this far in the short time I’ve been in business I attribute largely to the marketing strategies and knowledge I’ve gained from reading Lawrence’s Tofurious blog and most recently the Social Media Marketing for Digital Photographers book.

After reading it you will undoubtedly think differently about how you market your business and your business will in turn be better for it.

Lawrence outlines the way photographers can create an avid following and attract potential clients using the tools such as Facebook, Linked In and Twitter. Using his signature dry sense of humor, Lawrence uses examples of well known brands and provides parallels on how a digital photographer can apply these marketing strategies to their own businesses.

I picked up many valuable tips to use in my own business as well as insights on my own motivations as a consumer. I’ll for sure be re-reading this one a few times so I don’t miss any nuggets of wisdom.

Where to Get It

Amazon, Barnes, Walmart and other retailers all carry the book in stock. However, I’m a fan of Kindle, so all of my books go through them. Alas, the Kindle version is still be converted, so hard copy for now.

Lawrence has a very unique and keen insight on consumer habits, and does a great job of guiding the reader on how to utilize social media as an effective marketing strategy for growing your business.

If you’re like me and have wondered how to do this, then this material will probably be just what is going to help you, and educate you on how it all works. I was very impressed by his ability to allow us to see “behind the curtain” and understand the mechanism that motivates consumer habits, human behavior, and how to use it to attract quality clientele. Big thumbs up!

P.S. I’m working on a surprise for those who leave a nice comment on Amazon. I believe in positive reinforcement ๐Ÿ™‚

From my perspective: If photographers were “Jedis” and marketing the “lightsaber,” Lawrence Chan [would] be Qui-Gon Jinn whom with maverick and unconventional methods will teach us the proper use of the (marketing) “force.”

P.P.S. I spent about seven months working with a talented team to put this book together. A lot of blood, sweat, brain juice went into this. I’m really really really proud of this. Hope you all feel the same way.

P.P.P.S. Digital iBook, Kindle, Nook, etc. formats coming soon. Wiley Press is still in the process of converting it over. I’m anxious myself.
