FB. Accidental Marketing Success!! By Guest Contributor Kelly Jo Mitchell It’s that time of year…the time when we all look at our successes and failures from 2011 and decide what we did right and what we need to improve on.
I would love to say that my BEST marketing choice of 2011 was a deliberate ingenious idea, but the truth is, it resulted from under-pricing and overbooking my sessions!

We take a deeper look, and come up with a list of best practices. (Photo by Brad Mangin) Group buying website Groupon.com says they do everything they can to offer “too good to be true” experiences, and consistently deliver on that claim. This can be both good and bad. Last month, when a photographer in Atlanta, Georgia used the service to promote a discounted offer on her portrait photography services, many people cried foul when it was discovered that her online portfolio contained images taken from the websites of other photographers.
