    New subscriber and loving your content. This was really helpful! I just have one question. There are quite a few like and comment bots on Instagram. Usually you can tell them apart by how generic their comments are, but most of the time they are the only comments I get. Should I even bother replying to them or just leave them be?

  2. m Cruzado says:

    Hey Joe Edelman! I am currently working on a Facebook page for myself as a photographer, and wondered if I should or should not have reviews on it? The place where you can rank me from 1 to 5 stars and leave a comment. I am afraid this is to much "try to sell"? I hope you understand, an want to answer 🙂 I like your videos and think you have good quality on your content!

  19. Jan Engels says:

    Hi… Joe… Thanks for sharing your experience and knowledge with us, I started to join the facebook group too … You can not calculate the amount of time I spent trying to find a video about marketing for serious photographers … the vast majority are just Junk … I wanted to have known your channel years ago … What I like best about it is that the language and content seems to have been directed to me … Thank you very much …

  28. Carlos Benjamin says:

    This is better (and more needed) than some of the photography content, which is itself worth checking out. Thanks for breaking this down so well.

  29. Lance Krueger says:

    What do you mean "you don't need to be an expert. People don't like experts…" I think of you as an expert in people photography as a full time professional people photographer. And as a full time professional wildlife photographer for the past 25 years (and yes, somewhat of a dinosaur that's researching into social media and trying to find out how to properly do this. Ie. I'm in the research and planning stage), I was thinking about slanting my social media in the future toward me being an "expert" in my niche within the large genera of wildlife photography. Please flesh this out, that I quoted above. When I look to YouTube for info about anything, the guys that I look at who have the most experience, and have been doing this longer than anyone else, and are doing a better job at it than anyone else, are experts, and are the ones that I want to invest my time in to watch and learn from. Could you please flesh this out, Joe? I really appreciate your "expert" opinion ! 🙂

  30. Patricio Gómez says:

    First Video, I just suscribe, really good work man!!! keep it going!!!

  31. Caroline Krueger says:

    Hey, Joe. I've got a question regarding commenting back to every person that comments on your videos and posts. Is it necessary to comment back to EVERYONE? I feel like that would get very overwhelming very fast. What's your strategy for tackling that obstacle on a daily basis? Do you comment back on every social media platform?

  36. Al Fath Terry says:

    I have to learn how to speak english properly before i connect with people around the world, sorry for my bad english

  37. agus joharudin says:

    Joe, will it be too much consuming to reply every comment on your new and old videos? That is youtube alone, let alone other social medias.

  38. Marcos Enrique Ruiz Rivero II says:

    13:12 Joel that is not 100% true you answer all comment on your channels; i asked you once a questioned; i used to follow others photographers but stop doing it because they never answer any of my questions or comments. so…

  39. photogonboard says:

    This 2-part clip of yours, Joe, has become the most vital, useful and most important content I've watched in 2018. Learned so much. Can't thank you enough for posting and sharing your wisdom. Sitting here completely astonished, mainly about how poor I've been with social media now that you've drawn my attention to it. You've taught us how to relate to social media in such an eloquent easy to comprehend manner. Wow. The clip of the year for sure. Thank you, Joe, thank you.

Best wishes for now and yes I did subscribe.

    Hi Joe! I really love all your videos, my little work as a photographer has improved a lot since I started to follow you and I think there is a lot, a lot, and a lot of wisdom on each of your videos, I would love to see maybe a series of a revisited version of some of your best early videos but this time with your new gear.
    BTW… Thanks for your videos, "Your best shot is your next shot" means a lot to me in my daily basis.

  84. Alex Grebench says:

    This is a fantastic tutorial! I absolutely love how it skips the gimmicks and goes straight to the essence of what needs to be done. Thank you!!!

  85. Saket Singh says:

    Your maximum points got matched with my view, but I am really very shy to post photos too frequently (atleast twice a week). I'm not sure but it feels like I'm moreover doing show-off, though I have enough photos clicked and is stored in my library.

  86. Photo Panda says:

    Yes I m ready. And it was very helpful.

  87. Axis Imagery says:

  93. Flex With Geoff says:

    Your videos came to me right on time. I appreciate all the tips and advice and will start engaging more.

  94. Alex Grebench says:

    Look man, I feel trapped. I can’t post consistently to my social media because I just don’t have enough photos to post. I got 2 paid gigs over the last 2 years and I’ve taken the photos of all my friends several times at this point. Sadly I get no referrals, I can’t get more photos to even post online to ‘market’ myself. Sure I have room to grow but I can’t even practice to get better at this point since there’s literally no one to do photo shoots with. I tried to do TFP shoots but every model has flaked and I don’t know what to do. Maybe my work is shit, but from what I can tell it’s at least halfway decent. I apologize if I came across as quite negative, it’s just that I feel so hopeless and helpless when it comes to actually doing photography. Nothing I do makes it better. I don’t want to quit but I also don’t know how to go forward

  95. Super Creative says:

    Great video, Joe! Your energy and presentation is wonderful.

  96. Alexandr Vasiliev says:

    Great video ) Thx a lot for it and Hello. I just started my photography journey and I have few month to try it professionally) Sounds stupid probably, but Ilike it too much, will not forgive myself if I do not try. I learn a lot photography and decided to use Facebook as my starting social media platform. The question is: how much % do you rate own web site in total social media photographers life? Do not know if asked correctly, but assume we have 100%, YouTube 40%, Facebook 40%, site 20%. It is just an example) How do you think it really is for your business? Thx a lot for any reply.

  97. Ed French says:

    Joe, just found this video and it is golden. Solid advice from a sincere pro. Thank you for it!

  98. Elizabeth Marie Photography says:

    Great video! A lot of helpful tips. Where can I find part 2?

  99. Sandra Chatwin says:

    This is GOLD! I feel like I need a notebook to take notes, it is that good. Thanks for sharing your wisdom!
