Social Media sounds like a great set of tools for your business, but just what are you signing up for? Turns out there’s a lot more to social media than just getting re-tweets, likes, and +1s. Can we keep our images from escaping our control? How can we use it to our benefit?
Next, hear Jeff Sedlik, President of the PLUS Coalition, past National President of the Advertising Photographers of America, and a Professor at the Art Center College of Design, as he shares advances in PLUS, the Picture Licensing Universal System, and how that might impact social media.
Join us as we uncover some hidden pitfalls of social media sites, what we can do about them, and how we might maximize their advantages. Learn the best ways to get your work seen without losing complete control!
