SEO Tip of the Week 2

SEO Tip of the Week 2

Here's a simple and effective tip. Put the keyword you want to be found on, in your blog post title. If you're publishing an engagement shoot this title doesn't really provide any SEO help "John & Abby Engagement shoot" however if put some keywords in it, you'll start seeing some better luck with search engines.

Bad: "John and Abby Engagement Shoot"

Better: "An Intimate Engagement shoot with John and Abby"

Best: "An intimate engagement at Fall Creek Falls"

Want to start moving up in Search Results? Me too, here's the best way to do it. Get people linking to your site. 

Make connections with local vendors, maybe they'll link to your blog post of a great wedding you worked on together.

Submit to publications and industry blogs. They have amazing focused audiences that are looking for very specific content. Wedding photographer? What would be better than being published by JuneBug Weddings? Nothing.

SEO tip of the Week 5

SEO tip of the Week 5

Last week we discussed that getting external links was great for SEO, so are internal links. Search Engines like it when people click on multiple pages within a site, it's a key indicator that the site is relevant to the search term. 

The more pages guests click on is the more time they spend on the site, and that means your content is relevant and useful, which is why it will start ranking higher and higher, if you have great links to other parts of your page.

Widelux Wednesday 2

Widelux Wednesday 2

Earlier this summer, Cassie and I managed to take a trip out to Fall Creek Falls State Park. We spent an entire Saturday exploring the multiple waterfalls, trails, overlooks, and creeks they have there and I don’t think we ever wanted to leave. You can definitely spend a full weekend here just exploring and seeing all that there is to do. As always, I took my trusty Widelux because I love the way it captures landscapes and waterfalls, it’s unique and I can’t ever get enough. 

Here’s our view from the base of Fall Creek Falls, it’s beautiful from above, but absolutely majestic from below. You need to take the hike down, if you get the opportunity.

Along the trail down to Fall Creek Falls, were these beautiful rocks and view. It was gorgeous going down, and still beautiful but exhausting on the hike back up.

In the distance you can see Piney Creek Falls, this beautiful overlook was very remote and not too far from the parking area, definitely worth seeing.

Before you get to Piney Creek Falls there’s this amazing suspension bridge that looks like it disappears into the foliage. This is the view from the bridge looking towards Piney Creek. If I had more time at this park, I would have been down in this creek and it’s on the list of things I have to do next time we go back to Fall Creek Falls.

As always, my Widelux photos are available for print, if you’re interested in one, send me a message and I’ll provide you with information.

Allow me to Introduce myself

Hi, I'm Michael! 

I'm a photographer with a marketing problem... or a marketer with a photography problem. In the last 10ish years I've been on a dual journey. Professionally working in marketing, focusing on growing brands, building engagement, and working with analytics. 

Personally, I've been experimenting and growing as a photographer just as long. I am a strong believer in personal work, and figuring out what I can reveal about myself thru my photographs. You can catch my photography at This is Michael Kee

 

So let me explain the purpose of this blog to you, throughout my career working around photographers, there are a lot of amazing people out there creating amazing work. However, they can't sustain themselves as a business. Taking a great photo isn't enough to create a growing, profitable business anymore. The barriers to entry in this industry are lower than ever, and I want to start a discussion about the business of photography. I'm going to share different marketing principles here and provide the information you need to build your better brand.
