I have come across many photographers who are past the portfolio-building stage, and still doing photography part time, and surviving by having a separate full time job.
Other family responsibilities keep them from being able to go full-time with their business, but still they dream, that one day they will be a full time professional photographer.
They find themselves at that awkward in-between stage as they don’t have enough clients, and enough cash flow to make the transition to full time professional photographer.
They know that they need to be charging a lot more for their photography and need to do some Marketing.
The catch is that they need more clients before they can go full time, but they struggle because they need more time if they get more clients, to generate the income they need to go full time.
The whole scenario can be very frustrating, and quite stressful.
The sad thing is that they are not only missing out on their family, but have no financial reward to show for their hard efforts.
So what is the solution?
Watch this recorded Webinar where I talk to photographer Sarah Streets about her journey going from frustrated “wanna be” to full time professional photographer.
The first thing that she did when going full time was to get a coach.
Facebook Ads Go Crazy !
Working with Photographers around he world we are having big results with Facebook Marketing.
There is a right and wrong way of doing a Facebook ad.
In testing and measuring with lots of my clients we have found a successful formula that brings them in lots of new customers.
Here is what a few of my coaching clients have said this week………………
“I have already had 60 leads from my Facebook ad- 23 weren’t in target market, and
I have booked 25 so far just waiting for signed contracts, so should be 31 in total.
Pretty good start with 9 days of promoting
I am currently at 69 photography sessions booked in advance.. definitely made it past my aim of 50.”……Kate
“I just booked in 32 clients from a Facebook/Instagram targeted post that Bernie helped me do too.” …..Murielle
“I’m loving the Facebook “Boost” posts also.. I had 59 enquiries from one I did last week and booked 21 sessions so far !!!….Sarah
“I did a voucher promo on Facebook recently for Mother’s Day and I booked over 30 sessions in 24hours”…..Sara
If you are not using Facebook as part of your Marketing mix, you are missing out on a great opportunity to create extra income.
