ShootDotEdit’s Fast Five — 5 useful quick tips you can apply to your photography business right now!

If you’re serious about growing your photography business, outsourcing could be a strategic next step.  

There are many doors and opportunities that could open up when you choose to outsource your photo editing.

5 More Reasons to Outsource Your Photo Editing

Here are five more great reasons to bring in a specialist for your photo editing.

1. See What You’re Missing Out On

Instead of spending half your time in front of your computer screen — editing every single photo, find out what you’ve been missing out on.  Maybe it’s time to take that vacation with the kids. Or maybe there’s a lucrative photography gig waiting in the wings, waiting for an opening in your schedule.  But it won’t be waiting forever. At the very least, you could spend that lost time marketing to your ideal clients. Or even blogging [link to fotoskribe]!

2. Recalibrate Your Workflow Post-Wedding

Instead of heading straight home after the wedding to work on editing, spend time reaching out to new clients or even on a business plan for growth!

3. Turn Your Clients into Referrals

When you increase the turnaround time on your wedding photos, you skyrocket the chance of client referrals.  So don’t keep your brides and grooms waiting. Make sure you look for photo editing service with around a 48-hour turnaround time.

4. Increase Your ROI

Everything you do for your wedding photography business should increase your ROI.  Editing wedding photos isn’t one of them. You may be thinking that you don’t want to pay a specialist for something you could do for free… but your time isn’t exactly free, is it?

Calculate how much time it takes you to edit one wedding, and then look into how much it would cost to outsource the process.  You might find that your time is actually worth more than the outsourcing fee itself.

5. Work On Generating More Income

When you get rid of the editing hanging over your shoulders, you create time to generate more income from your business.  This includes networking, social media marketing, blogging and so much more. 

When you decide to start outsourcing your photo editing, or any process for that matter, you’ll see a whole new world open up.  And when it comes to maximizing your brand as a professional wedding photographer, there no better step you can take. So look into outsourcing your photo editing today.  Who knows what doors it will open up for you.
