My Story: I was blessed with a very creative mind (doctors classified it as ADD). At an early age I found photography. In 2013 I went pro and soon found myself photographing nationally published models, actors, and musicians. My work can be seen on comp cards from high end modeling agencies such as Ford. I have been published on album covers and one actor even credits me for landing a major role in a movie. (Thanks, but I’m sure your amazing talent and hard work had something to do with that.)
As awesome and successful as all that sounds, my clients were word of mouth Only. I didn’t have the volume of clients I wanted and in desperation I tried lowering my packaging prices well below it’s value. I would post an ad on Facebook, thinking that was good marketing and was totally confused when I didn’t make a sale. Despite the compliments and success stories of clients booking gigs based on my work, I began to question my talent and even my own worth.
I was just about to give up thinking my lack of customers and empty bank account was a sure sign I sucked as a photographer. But then I took a really long hard look at my situation. I realized it wasn’t my talent or my personal value that resulted in lack of customers, it was instead my lack of branding and marketing strategy.
That’s when I took a step back and realized my photography was helping entertainers make money. Why can’t it do the same for me? I began to study website design, SEO, branding and social media. What I found was a breath of fresh air. It helped me restore my confidence and my ability to live the dream by being successful at what I love to do.
I realize, I am happiest when I am being creative, sharing my talents AND feeling financially secure. I feel like I am not the only business owner that took a leap of faith and just about drowned financially by their dream career. I decided to restructure my business adding in social media and marketing services to help out business owners that are currently experiencing the same frustration and doubt.
