  1. New subscriber and loving your content. This was really helpful! I just have one question. There are quite a few like and comment bots on Instagram. Usually you can tell them apart by how generic their comments are, but most of the time they are the only comments I get. Should I even bother replying to them or just leave them be?

  2. Thanks Joe, great video, once again. The lessons taught and learned in this one are useful for so many other businesses as well. Looking forward to part 2.

  3. i've seen just a couple of your videos and told my daughter to watch them also,. I like how down to earth you are and how easy you make things look. I just became a subscribe with this video. Thumbs UP!!!

  4. Love your videos Joe, keep it up. But there is one thing I love the most and I absolutely need to get the answer 😀 Where do you get your shirts from? 😀

  5. Im a generally new subscriber, and i love your videos, they are very informative and has me reflecting on my techniques. I hope to be as knowledgable as you or more one day !

  6. Hey Joe Edelman! I am currently working on a Facebook page for myself as a photographer, and wondered if I should or should not have reviews on it? The place where you can rank me from 1 to 5 stars and leave a comment. I am afraid this is to much "try to sell"? I hope you understand, an want to answer 🙂 I like your videos and think you have good quality on your content!

  7. Eres brillante Joe, tienes una manera de captar la atención de tus seguidores y es por la manera tan natural de decir lo que quieres enseñar, te felicito, saludos desde Caracas.

  9. Hello! My name is C'say, from Ghana. I must say that this is definitely worth watching over and over again! It is full of helpful tips that you can use throughout your career. Thanks a lot!

  10. Thank you so so very much. I really needed this especially the engagement part because I had never taken time to reply to the comments on my work, I always thought it was unnecessary but now I know the importance of it..
    can't wait for the next video.

  11. Fantastic video. A lot of good stuff 😊 Thank you. I just would like to ask if you have any advice for me if is about the knowledge of tonne able to write the stories to my pictures as I am not good with writing and I need to do this in English which is not my first language. Will be very appreciated for any help and advice.

  12. Hi… Joe… Thanks for sharing your experience and knowledge with us, I started to join the facebook group too … You can not calculate the amount of time I spent trying to find a video about marketing for serious photographers … the vast majority are just Junk … I wanted to have known your channel years ago … What I like best about it is that the language and content seems to have been directed to me … Thank you very much …

  13. Just subscribed! Wonderful video. I'm new to photography and have just started to learn how to share my photography online.

  14. this is an outstanding video. very good content and I learned a lot. I'm a new photographer and am trying to be the very best I can be. thankyou

  15. This is better (and more needed) than some of the photography content, which is itself worth checking out. Thanks for breaking this down so well.

  16. What do you mean "you don't need to be an expert. People don't like experts…" I think of you as an expert in people photography as a full time professional people photographer. And as a full time professional wildlife photographer for the past 25 years (and yes, somewhat of a dinosaur that's researching into social media and trying to find out how to properly do this. Ie. I'm in the research and planning stage), I was thinking about slanting my social media in the future toward me being an "expert" in my niche within the large genera of wildlife photography. Please flesh this out, that I quoted above. When I look to YouTube for info about anything, the guys that I look at who have the most experience, and have been doing this longer than anyone else, and are doing a better job at it than anyone else, are experts, and are the ones that I want to invest my time in to watch and learn from. Could you please flesh this out, Joe? I really appreciate your "expert" opinion ! 🙂

  17. Hey, Joe. I've got a question regarding commenting back to every person that comments on your videos and posts. Is it necessary to comment back to EVERYONE? I feel like that would get very overwhelming very fast. What's your strategy for tackling that obstacle on a daily basis? Do you comment back on every social media platform?

  18. This was really helpful, i am having difficulties in building my own reputation since my society is a bet more preserved. Thank you for the information

  19. Joe, will it be too much consuming to reply every comment on your new and old videos? That is youtube alone, let alone other social medias.

  20. 13:12 Joel that is not 100% true you answer all comment on your channels; i asked you once a questioned; i used to follow others photographers but stop doing it because they never answer any of my questions or comments. so…

  21. Thank you! This video helped me a lot 🙂 I just started to take pictures as a professional photographer and i have a hard time finding clients, hope your good advices will help me getting more customers! (i'm sorry if my english isn't perfect, i'm from Quebec 🙂 )

  22. A bit late to the party to see this video, but it's very informative and a few things I never gave much thought. Great content mate, cheers!

  23. Thank you for this extremely valuable information sir. I needed to have found your channel long ago. I'm going to apply what you are teaching. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Dennis M.

  24. Hey Joe, I just stumbled across this video. I've never heard of you but I am very impressed and I am now a subscriber. Thanks for the common sense and plain talk advice.

  25. Well worth watching and following Joe's advice – why wouldn't you when he is a social media success! Extremely insightful and very well presented! Joe engages from the beginning, never misses a beat, is straight to the point and entertaining. Thank you Joe – see you in Part II.

  26. Great video Joe! So many obvious things that we just don't think about that can make a big difference. Wrote down a few that I'm going to start doing! Thank you!

  27. Thank you for the great perspective. It's helpful to be reminded of things like this. I need to be more social on social media for sure.

  28. This is amazing advice! Thank you for the tips! I look forward to using these principles to create the foundation of my own brand! Wish me luck!🙏

  29. Recently I watch a lot of photography tutorials on yt. To put it simply – You are the best of the bunch. Great advices, great photos, great experience and most importantly, I get the impression, thay You genuinly want to share the knowledge and not holding anything back. Great channel. Thank You.

  30. Other methods such as influencer marketing can be an effective way in marketing your business, especially when you use reliable platforms for it like phlanx

  31. I am so thrilled that I subscribed to your channel! Great advise for a new photographer like myself! Thank you for sharing your knowledge! off to watch part 2…

  32. Dude…stop. Dinosaur? Really? You know you see them everywhere right? From the arctics to the deserts. On every tree. etcetera.

  33. Great video! Thanks for sharing all of this tips! By the way i could not find your facebook page?

  34. This guy, is the Gary Vaynerchuk of the camera , my prediction we are all gonna snap this intellect info up. Joe Edelman wished I found you sooner.

  35. Great information! Wished you would have started the video by saying “grab a pen and paper, your going to want to write this down”. Now I’ll have to rewatch the video and make some notes.

  36. This 2-part clip of yours, Joe, has become the most vital, useful and most important content I've watched in 2018. Learned so much. Can't thank you enough for posting and sharing your wisdom. Sitting here completely astonished, mainly about how poor I've been with social media now that you've drawn my attention to it. You've taught us how to relate to social media in such an eloquent easy to comprehend manner. Wow. The clip of the year for sure. Thank you, Joe, thank you.

  37. Hi Joe. I really enjoyed your video. The content was wonderful, helpful and insightful. The way you come across on the video attracts viewers. I found your advice to be spot on and truly useful. Thanks so much for the pep talk and for encouraging others to take up a camera and enjoy the experience. Photography should be fun first and anything else is a bonus. Best wishes for now and yes I did subscribe.

  38. Hi Joe! I really love all your videos, my little work as a photographer has improved a lot since I started to follow you and I think there is a lot, a lot, and a lot of wisdom on each of your videos, I would love to see maybe a series of a revisited version of some of your best early videos but this time with your new gear.
    BTW… Thanks for your videos, "Your best shot is your next shot" means a lot to me in my daily basis.

  39. This is a fantastic tutorial! I absolutely love how it skips the gimmicks and goes straight to the essence of what needs to be done. Thank you!!!

  40. Your maximum points got matched with my view, but I am really very shy to post photos too frequently (atleast twice a week). I'm not sure but it feels like I'm moreover doing show-off, though I have enough photos clicked and is stored in my library.

  41. Joe, that was one of the best YouTube videos I have ever seen. I love that you promote social discipline and respect! Do you have any plans on writing a book covering all of this? Thanks for the video! Chris

  42. Your videos came to me right on time. I appreciate all the tips and advice and will start engaging more.

  43. Look man, I feel trapped. I can’t post consistently to my social media because I just don’t have enough photos to post. I got 2 paid gigs over the last 2 years and I’ve taken the photos of all my friends several times at this point. Sadly I get no referrals, I can’t get more photos to even post online to ‘market’ myself. Sure I have room to grow but I can’t even practice to get better at this point since there’s literally no one to do photo shoots with. I tried to do TFP shoots but every model has flaked and I don’t know what to do. Maybe my work is shit, but from what I can tell it’s at least halfway decent. I apologize if I came across as quite negative, it’s just that I feel so hopeless and helpless when it comes to actually doing photography. Nothing I do makes it better. I don’t want to quit but I also don’t know how to go forward

  44. Great video ) Thx a lot for it and Hello. I just started my photography journey and I have few month to try it professionally) Sounds stupid probably, but Ilike it too much, will not forgive myself if I do not try. I learn a lot photography and decided to use Facebook as my starting social media platform. The question is: how much % do you rate own web site in total social media photographers life? Do not know if asked correctly, but assume we have 100%, YouTube 40%, Facebook 40%, site 20%. It is just an example) How do you think it really is for your business? Thx a lot for any reply.
