Ya know, I don’t go on Facebook a ton. Between shoots every weekend, weekday editing and all the daily business “stuff” that goes on behind-the-scenes, plus volunteering at my son’s school, dishes, laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, blah, blah, blah…who has time for Facebook?!?
So, when I hopped on yesterday (because if I don’t every once in a while I have no idea what’s going on with my family these days), and saw my Facebook business page had been tagged, of course it spiked my curiosity. My website and blog (or blogsite) has been ranked WORLDWIDE at #60 for one of the Top 75 Maternity Photography Blogs & Websites on the Web!!!! How cool is that?
I’ve known since starting my business in 2011 that SEO and blogging needed to play a large role in my marketing for my online business because I knew deep down that social media isn’t my thing. I’m a private person, I like small groups, and I don’t like being front and center. To me, keeping up on social media feels like pressure and I don’t do well under pressure. I love posting and sharing for my clients that love social media, but for those that don’t, I offer the opt-out in my Portrait Agreement, which I’m more than happy to oblige.
I guess all my website work (100% done by me) and SEO and Blogging has paid off! I will give a big shout out to Clickin’ Moms and the SEO course I took earlier this year by Beth Wade (another photographer who is an SEO expert and fantastic photographer) that I believe really gave my website the boost it needed.
