Tuesday’s Bits and Bobs: Trying to Advertise

The year has well and truly started and I need to get on with things.  Some things are about to start and others have just gone by.

Newsletter

The first newsletter went out last week, and thank you to those that have let me know how they found it, I do appreciate it.  It was a bit light, and I am hoping that I will get more information for it.  I want to do more tutorials in it, have some for Lightroom and maybe some more advanced ones for Photoshop, will have to work on those.  I like the idea of the newsletter being more a learning and information thing.

IMG_20150116_140023If you missed out on the first newsletter, but don’t want to miss out on the next one, there is a button in the sidebar that says Sign up LCP Newsletter, if you click on that it will take you to where you can subscribe to it.

Advertising Social Snappers

The first Social Snappers is coming up this week and I am still trying to get women interested in doing them.  I really am not very good at the whole advertising and marketing thing.  I’m trying a couple of new things, so hopefully something will work.  I really want these to work, I love the idea, and so many people have said they love it too.  The Sunday one seems more popular, but I am hoping the Thursday one just school hours will also be successful.

 Instagram

I’ve been having lots of fun taking photos mainly with my DSLR, but also with my phone.  Yesterday I went to Flinders and the friend I was with was using her phone to take photos, and I might say having a ball doing it.  I did find her copying what I was doing as well.  She didn’t have Instagram, but I did, so I was having fun trying to get some images for it.

All the images in this post are ones that I have posted on Instagram.  I tend to use only photos that I have taken with my phone for it, since Instagram have the same rules as Facebook and they can use your photos I only use photos that I don’t really care about.  They aren’t always good, but I have a lot of fun doing them.IMG_20150112_161811

I tend to use Instagram only when I go out.  I thought those that follow me would enjoy seeing where I’ve been and get a heads up of what photos might be coming up.

That is about all for this week. As this image publishes I am hoping I will be catching a sunrise over on the Bellarine  Peninsula.  I hope I wake up to my 3am alarm.  I know I will love it, but I am not looking forward to it.

  6. Hi Leanne, I love your newsletter. I didn’t see it at first, but I saw on your blog that it went out. I think I have it so it will sort to my primary inbox now. I loved what you said about taking your time to work with photo editing and you might stumble on something that is uniquely yours. That inspires me.

    • Hey Nicci, that is great, so good to get some feedback. Oh, did it go in your spam folder? Maybe next time I will try and do the post and send it out at the same time so people know to look for it. That is great to hear, I love that concept though, it is good. I’ve discovered so many new things.
