If you're yet to realize your goal -- or dream -- of becoming an Instagram celebrity, you could get yourself on the way by enlisting the help of a chatbot. Not your Instagram junkie friends, your photography mentor, or a social media marketing expert.
Two years ago, you couldn’t find me without a camera. Throwing a party? I’ll photograph it. Need a new profile picture? I got you. After a year or so, I really found myself drawn to photographing people.
Whether you're just getting started or someone far along, you're most likely using Facebook as one of your online tools for promoting your photography business. With Facebook's recent announcement regarding changes on the News Feed, there's been a lot of buzz about the repercussions these will bring to brands and businesses.
It is the life of a photographer these days, constantly posting our work on social media, constantly trying to get our work in front of the right people to hopefully gain new clients. Often this means using hashtags to help those who may be interested in our work be able to find it easier.

It's a new year and most of us probably have some new years resolutions for our personal lives, but what about your business? Surely you have at least the generic goal to make more money during 2017, and beyond that many of you have likely set goals to improve your marketing - either through social media, advertisements, SEO, etc.
Social Media Week reports that Instagram is currently experimenting with “shoppable photos” hoping to make a stronger push towards e-commerce for the app. Currently a limited number of iOS users are testing out the ability to tap on photos that provide info and links about the items pictured.
