More and more wedding photographers are using Facebook and Twitter today, but relatively few are taking advantage of other useful social networking sites, such as Digg and StumbleUpon. In this video, I look at ways that you can leverage these sites to market your business.

But are the brides on Digg and Stumbleupon? Why hang out where the clients aren't?

Digg and Stumbleupon may be good for a lot of stuff, but I'm not convinced it's the ideal thing for wedding photographers. I would rather suggest putting more effort into writing own blog posts - and link these to the portfolio - which could pop up in various search terms.

I signed up for Stumbleupon, but every time I try to log in, they tell me it's the wrong user name or password. Then I try to have them send a new password and they tell me the email is incorrect. So I try to re-sign up, and they tell me my email is already in use. But like Bjarte said, I don't think couples are on those sites. Karen

When you digg and stumbleupon, it does help your name come up more times out there with searches. The more you are "bookmarked," the better people are able to find you and the more search engines find you "attractive". So, for this particular example, it's not just about the brides hanging out here. While some do hang out here, it's about a larger picture for your marketing pie.

Yes, write your blog posts and link to your portfolio - but THEN digg these and bookmark them in stumbleupon. This isn't about NOT doing those things. It's about taking what you're doing already to the next level to get you more exposure in the marketplace.
