We’ve all seen what social media can do for a photographer’s career. Some relative newcomers have used it to propel themselves into the stratosphere. Others have used it to supplement their core business, and establish a formidable presence in the electronic marketplace.

We all know about SEO, blogging, tweeting, FBing, linking in, etc. — or do we? What can we do to stand out even MORE than our competitors?
