Photography businesses are popping up everywhere. Many people are buying a camera and are starting businesses without much of a plan. I see many photographers having to take a second job to pay for bills or eventually having to close down their shop.
It's important to look at the photography business as a small business. The photographer needs to see himself / herself as an entrepreneur. A person with a passion, a vision and an artistic person who will need to put all this together and earn an income.
Crea8fotos is teaching photographers how to create marketing plans and how to use social media efficiently. Photographers can be responsible for their own advertising but need to know how to do it and how to attract the ideal client.
Writing aimlessly everywhere is not going to attract people to your website.
Marketing results do not happen quickly. Planning takes time and so does research.
I have had people write to me asking me to help them make a certain amount within the next month because they could not pay the bills. I can't do that.
When you do marketing you also plan for the next year and then for the next 2 years and more. There is a process that all this needs to go through. The process is constantly being tweaked to the needs of the target market.
If you are starting your photography business, this is when you want to organize your company and direct it towards earning an income.
If you already have a photo business and want to expand it, you may prefer our business coaching.
Marketing and organizing are not the only things that business people need to do.
You need to create goals. Goals that will be for the next year, the second, third and then for the next five and ten years. These goals can be implemented as part of your company's growth.
When was the last time you took a real vacation? Add it to your plans. Work towards real time off.

Just working and going around in circles trying to figure out what to do next is not a good way to run a business.

When you have a business that needs to expand, coaching will be a good option. Through coaching the fine points can be tweaked and help can be tailored for specific needs.
