Happy new year everyone! To start us off, I thought I’d share a great inspiration board from fabulous weddings we were a part of in 2010! If you can’t decide on just one color, don’t worry: mixing colors of the same palette makes for a powerful and rich effect. Here are ideas for use of oranges, reds with touches of purple. The mix of flowers also makes for great textures, especially for your bridesmaids’ bouquets and your centerpieces!

5 five minute tips to promote your photography business

Who doesn’t have five minutes to help get the word out for their photography business?
Here are 5 things that take five minutes, and what you should’ve done instead:

 

1. get more out of your email

What you did:
Write an email to mom trying to explain why you didn’t call last Sunday (well, that may take more than 5mn)

What you should’ve done instead:
Use Wisestamp for your email and embed your business website, your Facebook fan page, etc. in your email automagically so that anyone you email knows about your business (yes, your mom, and the thousands of other people you email every year). Works seamlessly with Gmail and Yahoo Mail, and seriously takes 3mn to install.

Creating a unique html signature in Gmail and Yahoo Mail

2. Put your face out on Facebook

What you did:
Wrote on your BFF’s wall about your latest photoshoot

What you should’ve done instead:
Create a Facebook Page for your business and suggest to friends (and tell them to suggest to their friends!). Bonus to get traction: add an original profile pic or take photos for a local charity and invite participants to tag themselves on the photos you upload to your page’s wall.

Also make sure that you add a friendly message when you ask friends, like “Hey, come write something on my newly created Facebook page!”. So… if you like these tips, come and write something on the Sphynge Photography Facebook wall!

3. Make the latte extra sweet for your business

What you did:
Wait in line for you latte (5mn is a short lane!)

What you should’ve done instead:
Think of the number of other people waiting in line for their latte! Ask your local coffee shop if they’ll let you offer a free photo shoot – add a fish bowl for people to drop their business card into, and voila! You’ve got yourself a winner to try your services & tell their friends – along with new customer list of people you can send photo tips to.

4. Give more than your business card

What you did:
Spend 5 hours working on your business card, only to give it to a guy in the coffee shop line, who then tossed it with his cup.

What you should’ve done instead:
While most photographers think of putting their latest photo on their business card, few think about the back of the business card… how about putting 3 tips to look better in photographs on the back of your card? That will help you be remembered, and lessen the chance your card gets tossed away.

Tip to make a photography business card that'll stand out

5. give your laptop a makeover

What you did:
You spent 5 minutes scratching off the old promotional stickers from your laptop (damn those things are resilient!)

What you should’ve done instead:
Make your very own promotional tool! Create a unique branded laptop cover with GelaSkins Inc. – uploading your photo with the name of your business and website only takes five minutes.… and think of the number of times you’re working at that coffee shop looking at that laptop!
