    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. Just Travelin' Thru January 4, 2017 at 3:47 pm

    Here is question I have…I try to post only the BEST shots…BUT some of the photos I post do not get a response like other photos do…IF the photo you post does not go over well..(likes, comments, etc) Should you take the photo down and replace with another?

  3. Melissa Toledo January 5, 2017 at 10:13 pm

    Great words of wisdom Joe! I think I'm ready for a new selfie 🙂

  4. Joe williams January 6, 2017 at 2:26 pm

  14. Torgeir Rørvik March 12, 2017 at 5:16 pm

    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!

  15. Edgar Barrios March 14, 2017 at 3:01 pm

    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.

    can't wait for the next video.

  23. Jimivega May 2, 2017 at 5:27 pm

    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.

  25. Jan Engels May 7, 2017 at 2:33 pm

    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 …

  26. Scott Night79 May 8, 2017 at 6:36 am

    Awesome and insightful video Joe thank you.

  27. Riccardo Duò May 9, 2017 at 6:35 pm

  33. Sonny Joseph July 4, 2017 at 12:53 pm

    Great stuff! Following your example, Thanks,

  34. Carlos Benjamin July 13, 2017 at 10:33 pm

    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.

  35. Lance Krueger July 17, 2017 at 7:55 pm

    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 ! 🙂

  36. Patricio Gómez July 19, 2017 at 5:26 pm

    First Video, I just suscribe, really good work man!!! keep it going!!!

  37. Caroline Krueger July 20, 2017 at 7:09 pm

    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?

  38. Jamal Batawi July 26, 2017 at 10:51 am

    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

  39. Vernon Nash July 26, 2017 at 8:49 pm

    This is business gold. Your content is superb. Many thanks Joe.

  40. Pav August 1, 2017 at 12:09 am

    Thanks Joe! Love your work. Keep it up!

  41. Antonio Avolio August 20, 2017 at 1:42 am

  42. Al Fath Terry September 6, 2017 at 3:39 am

    I have to learn how to speak english properly before i connect with people around the world, sorry for my bad english

  43. agus joharudin September 6, 2017 at 5:15 pm

    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.

  44. Marcos Enrique Ruiz Rivero II September 13, 2017 at 1:16 pm

    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…

  45. photogonboard September 20, 2017 at 5:23 pm

    minute 12, enough to suscribe!

  46. David Smith September 26, 2017 at 10:54 am

  82. Nuts and Bolts August 23, 2018 at 9:19 pm

    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.

  83. Joey Castellon August 29, 2018 at 8:27 pm

    I didn't get the "CC Welcome" part. Would anybody mind explaining this to me? Thanks!

  84. Jeremy Lerman September 6, 2018 at 1:58 pm

    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.

  85. Positive Ageing September 20, 2018 at 4:20 pm

    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.

  90. German Bueso October 27, 2018 at 5:34 am

    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.

  91. Alex Grebench November 9, 2018 at 6:57 am

    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!!!

  92. Saket Singh November 15, 2018 at 9:01 pm

    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.

  93. Photo Panda December 20, 2018 at 9:42 pm

    Yes I m ready. And it was very helpful.

  94. Axis Imagery January 1, 2019 at 1:29 pm
