Photographers and Social Media – What NOT to Do

Photographers and Social Media – What NOT to Do We all know there are the people on Facebook who are constantly whining and complaining through their Facebook pages. But if you are using Facebook to market your own business, this is definitely not the kind of thing you want to be posting. You don’t want a negative attitude to be associated with your business, especially through something as public as Facebook. We have to remember that anything we say and do through social media is now permanent on the Internet somewhere. So if you have to think twice about whether or not you should post something on your social media pages, you probably shouldn’t.

The same kind of thing goes for those who advertise for their business on their car. If you have your business name and logo on your car, it’s probably not the best idea to be an angry and aggressive driver. You never know what kind of business you could be turning away from a mean glare or from cutting someone off. When I had my car magnets on my car, I was always more aware of how I was driving. I was actually overly considerate (if there is such a thing!) to make sure I was putting the kind of message about me that I’d be happy about.

People are always watching, talking and making opinions, judgments and assumptions. Always.

Marketing is meant to be a positive thing, not negative. So if you’re not 100% okay with what you post always being linked to you, don’t say it! And if you don’t want to scare away customers with reckless driving, don’t do it! This also goes for your competition. Watch what you say and what you post. It will come back to you later, so make sure that you’ll be happy when it comes back around. You don’t want something to come back and haunt you later.
