When I first started my photography business, I quickly realized the life of a young entrepreneur was filled with many twists and turns. Not only did I have to learn how to run a business, I had to learn how to work with clients. I struggled finding a balance between effective communication, professionalism and my personality…all while not wanting to spend the majority of my day drafting countless emails.
Over the years, I drafted template emails to streamline initial correspondence with clients. Soon I discovered I spent less time with my inbox and more time with my camera…which is exactly what I wanted. In a series of 10 sample emails, I show how to effortlessly correspond with clients while maintaining an efficient workflow.
The following emails are included:
- Email Requesting Personalized Client Information
- Response to Email Inquiry for Wedding Photography Services
- Response if Unavailable for a Wedding Date
- Follow Up Email
- Response If Prospective Client is Inquiring Too Far in Advance of Booking Season
- Response to a Prospective Client Requesting Discounted Prices
- Following Up with a Prospective Client When Another Prospective Client Expresses Interest for the Same Wedding Date
- How to Prepare Clients for an Engagement Session
- How to Prepare Clients for the Wedding
- Response if Prospective Client is Requesting Photography Outside of Specialty
