Wedding photography is one of the most difficult industries to break through in. A dissatisfied spouse can turn your thriving business into a flop with one harsh comment. For wedding photographers to find their flow and build a name for themselves, a lot of hard work, patience and digital exposure needs to be invested in,
The digital age is not only among us, but lightyears ahead of us in the ideas of exposure, connectivity and representation – using digital marketing to give your wedding photography business the upper hand is how you can beat your competition and take your artistry to the next level.
Here are 3 ways you can promote your wedding photography business and draw in more clients:
Create a website that explains all your services
Your website should capture the style and messaging that you wish to portray to your new clients. This is the first point of reference your new market will meet. Apart from the obvious home page, about you and your style and examples of your work, be sure to connect your website to a multifunctional blog.
Blogs are powerful tools in digital marketing, with the power to create SEO content and boost it across the globe, blogs are there to help you rank higher on Google and therefore create more visibility for your brand.
Also make sure that you connect your website to Google Business Profile and any social media platform that you will grow throughout your professional journey. At 4Sight, our team is equipped with experienced writers and SEO gurus ready to give your wedding photography brand the boost it needs.
Promos are everything in the art world
When a prospective or potential client jumps onto a photographer’s website, they’re hoping to see a number of samples that they can aspire to for their big day. Wedding professionals emphasize the importance of the wedding outfits, the venue, the music, the bar and the food but in atual fact, the photography is what will be your lasting memory of the big day.
After all the rented items are hauled back into storage, the food eaten and the outfits sold or stored away, only the photo album remains to remind the happy couple of the fun and excitement shared with family and friends. Wedding photography should capture emotions and experiences, this is what your new clients are looking for in your promotional video.
