Good content is worth reading again and your posts are worth sharing and re-sharing. As photographers, it is vital to think of your blog posts like stories that can be read again and again. Potential clients will always want to see the work you have done, and existing clients will love having a place to refer their friends. A good social media sharing strategy uses your existing blog posts in multiple ways and at multiple times.
