Being a photographer, one of the questions I regularly receive is:
Are you on Instagram
I am not. I have an account but I don’t use it. As I’ve mentioned on CJP Photo News before, my entire reason for being online is to promote my businesses, whether it’s my spiritual blog or my photography business. While Instagram works for some photographers, one reason I don’t use my account is the fact that there is no way to create a link from each picture I share. I want eyes on my website.
When I share photography on Facebook, I do so DIRECTLY from CJP Photos, so that when people on Facebook see my pictures and click on the photo, they are sent to my website. The click doesn’t open another window with the picture.
--This puts more eyes on my site and the more eyes on my site, the better the likelihood of converting them. And when more people visit my website I will rank higher in SEO, because search engines will think I have greater content.
If Instagram ever changes their policy and lets photographers create links for each photo that is shared, I will reconsider. Until or unless they do I will remain on the sidelines. You can still find me on my Facebook Business Page:
In the meantime:
Focus on what's ahead of you.
