Design & Promote is partnering up with Procam to bring you this next presentation: SEO for Photographers (or anyone that has images on their website).  Procam Chicago is one of the area’s best cameras, equipment and accessories providers and they are letting us use their workshop space.

Have you ever thought: How do I get my images to show up in Google and other search results? 

To start, you shouldn’t upload your images to the web as they come out of the camera. Mistake #1 is uploading images onto your website with names like: D1588300.jpg.

A thoughtful approach to SEO (search engine optimization) is the solution. 

You don’t have to be a photographer in order to attend our seminar! In fact, understanding the basics of SEO for images WILL help anyone that has a lot of images on their website. So whether you’re in the photography business, a wedding venue manager, someone who manages an online portfolio, or a corporation with lots of images on your site, etc… you will walk away with valuable website optimization tips.

This seminar will be led by Bruce Jones, search engine optimization expert & CEO of Design & Promote. Bruce will show you how to get your website and photo galleries to the top of Google searches and how you can convert more visitors into qualified leads when they get there.
