Confession time: while I love photography, I love branding and business more. After two years in the photography business I’ve discovered that while being an amazing photographer that consistently works magic with your camera is huge, creating a memorable brand just might be even bigger. Don’t shake your head yet; hear me out!
That’s right…I said it…you can make $1000 (or more) from any type of session. When I first started out in photography I couldn’t come to terms with the fact that I was going to have to shoot weddings if I wanted to make a living. I HATE WEDDINGS! I’m not exaggerating when I say hate..I really hate them, I dread them, I stay as far away from them as possible…well unless I’m a guest and there’s an open bar and some awesome tunes…but whatever you do don’t ask me to bring my camera!
“Do I really need a website? I mean I’ve got Facebook.” The answer to that question is YES! You need a website! If not a website then a blog site (either way you’re in the right spot!). A great website is a surefire way to make a great first impression! Lets face it, the thought of creating a website can be overwhelming. You may feel like a you don’t have time to figure out how to set it up or even where to begin. SURPRISE! We’ve figured it out for you! Not only have we created a video tutorial to explain just how to get a WordPress site up and running, we’ve shown you how to do it in just 5 minutes!
If you don’t already have a website, consider this a swift kick in the behind. You TOTALLY need a website. Facebook just won’t cut it. Neither will Etsy. Fact is, you don’t actually own either of those sites, and that’s scary! Having your own site gives you control of how your content is displayed, and frankly, it just looks good. You look like a legitimate business if you have a website you can direct people to. Creating one (or updating the one you already have!) is easy. Check out this list of the things your website absolutely must have, and tips on how to make each page stand out!
