I couldn’t figure it out… I really wanted to be a professional photographer, but how can you be a professional photographer if you have no clients?
I couldn’t figure it out… I knew I had to raise my prices, but the clients I had weren’t willing to pay my new rates.
I couldn’t figure it out… I was tired of attracting the bargain shoppers, but somehow that’s who I always got.
These were ALL very real frustrations and worries that I had in the beginning of my photography career. I was a new photographer in a new town. And I lost all my clients when I made the jump from $200 to $400. It was like I was starting over… And then imagine the jump from $400 to $2,000.00… Starting over again!
There is one very obvious answer to all of these concerns. It’s Marketing.
I understand personally exactly why you might be shrinking from it. Marketing can be insanely intimidating… But the true reality is that for every week that you sit without taking action, you’re letting the dream of being a thriving professional photographer slip further away.
I remember feeling those same fears!! But one day I woke up and threw away all my excuses… and I just did it! I took all of the ideas I had, and I started trying them one by one. Some were flops and some produced huge successes. The key all along had been action.
