MODERATE A PHOTO COMMUNITY
Make the most of photo-sharing platforms and grow a like-minded following
Grow a successful online following
While online photo-sharing sites such as Flickr, 500px and Google Plus can be a tremendous resource for promoting your photography to a large audience, to fully exploit the usership of such websites, you need to engage with those who are likely to appreciate your style. Joining photo groups is a fantastic way of showing your work to people who are actively seeking the type of images you create. A step further is to create your own community, to invite other photographers from whom you can draw inspiration. Building and maintaining an active, productive group can be quite a challenge – as a moderator you have to curate the content and encourage other users that it is worth their time to become involved. Learn to overcome the main challenges of getting started and foster a positive, motivational online network.
