MY WEDDING SEASON – THE PODCAST

INTERVIEW MAIN TAKEAWAYS

Are you overwhelmed with the many avenues and opportunities available to market your wedding photography business online?

It is understandable especially if you are constantly looking at how other photographers are doing it, but the truth is that it doesn’t have to be that way. Stacey explains that you don’t have to feel pressured to be great at Instagram, blogging or newsletters etc… Her advice is to take a moment and think about what is working for you right now. Ask yourself. What is your purpose? What are your goals? What are you trying to do? And the answer can be: I am trying to gain more leads and book more clients – or certain type of client. She points out that you cannot do the same strategy as everybody else for something that you are trying to achieve for yourself. Therefore, Stacey’s advice is for photographers to lean into what is currently working and to try out one new thing in marketing. And once you have got this one new thing down and in your schedule – analyze it and see how it goes for three months. If it works great, keep going – if it doesn’t, try something else.

“The biggest tool in marketing still is, you know, your word-of-mouth, the relationships you have, and the community around you. So if you want to start somewhere, start there.
Start with your relationships.”

– Stacey Owen, Pepper

Stacey says that it is really important to have a website as your homebase as a photographer. At the same time, no matter where you are present, whether it is your website, social media or newsletter, it is incredibly important that your brand messaging and brand voice is clear so that you can connect with the people with the people you want to connect with, regardless of where they find you.

We also dive into the Online Marketing Course for Photographers that Pepper is launching in March 2022. Stacey talks about the importance of having a marketing strategy in place. She has noticed that many photographers usually hop onto social media to market their business and invest most of their time there, but it is worth figuring out where your type of audience is online e.g. Pinterest. And be sure to use tools like Google Analytics to track where most of your leads are coming from to your website.
