Shooting Star : Three FREE Marketing Tips


I hosted a photography workshop last week (more on that coming soon!) and one of the most common frustrations and/or worries I heard from photographers dealt with marketing and/or booking weddings. Apparently, I’m loving and/or today. More specifically, how can a wedding photographer market his services with very little money? We had some great conversations, so today I’ll be sharing three marketing tips for photographers.

In today’s installment of Shooting Star, I’ll be talking about…
…marketing by using photographs from past weddings to connect with vendors…
…marketing by way of Facebook to allow friends, family and fans to endorse your services…
…marketing by way of your peers (if you’d like to learn more about this in depth, also check out this video)

If you have feedback, questions, or ideas for future installments of Shooting Star, feel free to holler back in the comment box below. Happy Thursday!

    I liked the notes at the bottom of the video very high tech…go JD! And most importantly, your sequin cheveron top…it made the whole video.

    @Sara: You’re an awesome detective! 😉 I bought it at J. Crew…but it was on clearance, so be sure to see if you can snag a bargain instead of paying full price! 🙂

    Howwwww did you know that November had me in a tizzy? 😉 And yes, I agree, the shirt is a damn distraction. I am going to JCrew to snag that up with a gazillion pairs of sale shorts. xo

    PS: Making friends (photographers and vendors) here has been the BIGGEST reason that I have booked and passed my goals, so great true tip I can attest to. Make friends–hollerrrrrrrrr. It also helps that I love them long time.
