Exploiting social media is no longer just a means of staying connected, but instead crucial for boosting revenue, remaining relevant and ultimately staying ahead of the competition. Premier among graduate schools, Touro College transforms technology from the classroom into the right platform from which to launch commercial and artistic prospects. This January 14th, Touro College is hosting their One Day Winter Institute special with “Taking Advantage of Social Media & Photography” event. Co-hosts Kate DiGiacomo, of LocalVox, and Touro's Professor Jesse Epstein, will explore how social media and photography are setting the curve for how we operate and do business in an increasing digitized world.
With digital media becoming one of the fastest growing areas of eCommerce, it’s not surprising that the UK’s The Guardian newspaper is predicting that 2015 will be the year in which digital media advertising expenditures will overtake all other forms of advertising combined—including cabs, cinema and billboards. When you think of the Web and social media in these terms, it’s incomprehensible that anyone would not explore Web and multimedia opportunities.
The Taking Advantage of Social Media & Photography workshop aims to do just that: explore how individuals and enterprises can exploit the benefits of social media and how new social media demands for photography can aid in doing so. The event is tailored to illuminate the practical aspects of social media and the ways in which good photography captivates social media audiences with memorable storytelling. The format of the workshop follows a combination of presentations with hands-on experience and illustrations by the experts. Register for the event by January 12th and clear your calendar for Wednesday, January 14th, between 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. to participate in the workshop.
