In a step-by-step tutorial video published on his photography resource blog SmokingStrobes.com, Michael Zelbel shares a fresh strategy on how aspiring photographers can leverage Google Buzz social status updates and a Google profile to their ultimate advantage.
With Google releasing its brand new Buzz social networking site, everybody keeps “buzzing” about its probable success – built directly into Gmail, with a resource of over 150 million users, it’s bound to explode the Internet. Given the massive promotion campaign and abundant features, Google Buzz will potentially rival Facebook (over 200 million users) and Twitter (over 20 million users) in the usual “let’s-see-who-gets-the-most-users” competition.
However, from the very beginning, the question on Zelbel’s mind was – what’s in it for glamour photographers? He has discovered the answer and would like to share it with.
It comes as no surprise that nowadays many artists experience difficulties attracting attention to their works, even online – in order to draw more inspired admirers, they have to be inventive. Zelbel sees social media as a perfect technique for beguiling the audience – and for good reason, Google Buzz can be better at it than most social networking sites. Unlike Twitter, it doesn’t have 140 symbols length limit for posts, and in comparison to Facebook, it is much more delicate to photographs. Photographers will probably see it as a great opportunity to “speak up” with their works – even though Flickr is a great resource for online portfolios and networking, it doesn’t attract half as much people as other social media.
Google Buzz is to become the first weighty word of Google’s on the rapidly growing market of social media – until recently the Orkut network has been its only major project, which gained quite some popularity in Brazil and India. For photographers, Google Buzz will hopefully become a powerful instrument for showcasing their talents and spreading the word and image about themselves.
The video released on SmokingStrobes shows exactly, in a comprehensive and step by step manner, how to set up Google Buzz and combine it at maximum efficiency with other social media – in order to attract more viewers by working smartly rather than much.
Michael Zelbel, the person behind SmokingStrobes and this particular tutorial, jokes, “This tactics is really so simple even I couldn’t mess it up – and the most wonderful thing about it is that it actually works! I hope fellow photographers around the globe will find it just as promising as I do”.
