  • I may have downplayed the effect of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) a little in the first part of this series – which covered the importance of word of mouth marketing. However, it does not mean that SEO should be ignored by any means. In fact doing so would be folly. For the most part, photographers and creative professionals  don’t want to spend time obsessing about SEO. However, we realize that it’s an important aspect of running a successful operation online. The good news is that  setting up the basic parameters of SEO best practices is not difficult, and doing so will give you a leg up on competitors who are not inclined to put in the little bit of extra effort. Where Do I Start? Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a technique that helps search engines find and rank your site within their organic search results.  The higher you rank in results, the more web traffic can come through to your site, which in turn gives you more opportunities to convert prospective clients into buying  customers. Search engines strive to provide its users with relevant search results.They analyze your site and what is on your site. If the search parameters match, then the Search Engine will offer up your site as a result. Where your site ends up in the results will depend on how relevant the search engines think it is, and how many competitor sites seem equally relevant.

You may think that what you do is obvious to anyone that sees your site. Though that might be true, it won’t be obvious to search engines, and if...
  • Karrie Ann Snure introduces her passion for life and her harnessed craft, Living Shasta Photography, much like a dream. I found myself  happily singing that popular nursery rhyme – Row, row, row your boat, Gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, Life is but a dream. – as I explored the magnetic energy that Karrie Ann created throughout her website.  Essentially she created an online meeting place that very nicely embodied her ethereal imagination as a photographer. Living beside Mount Shasta since 1985, she spent years discovering “the many special places that can capture the mystery and magic of any occasion.”  Often finding herself relishing in the ever changing moods and compelling forces of Mt. Shasta’s beauty. Redframe offers the full versatility Karrie Ann needs to epitomize her eye for detail as she captures magic on land and in the virtual world.  She credits her adventures “backpacking, rafting, traveling the mountains on horseback”, as well as her family for providing the fuel for her creative vision. Karrie Ann puts her heart into her craft and this is clearly expressed through her thoughtful composition of her Redframe website space. She effectively illustrates her passion for giving her clients a highly creative experience unlike any other. She smartly utilizes many of Redframe’s advanced features and tools to create her effect. Photo Sharing Many of us would agree that what makes photography so magical is the ability to allow us to remember vividly a moment in life perpetually. Oftentimes moments pass by much too quickly so when we do capture them and the feelings they invoke in us, most often we want to share them. Karrie Ann provides her clients with the option to share photos by using our drop-down Menu button to link to her Picasa web albums for shared events....
