When it comes to time spent for income earned, mini sessions are king. A survey of some of our ShootDotEdit photographers revealed that a successful mini session campaign around the holidays can make or break the year for many small businesses.
Here are three tips we learned from other Professional Wedding and Portrait Photographers for making mini sessions work year-round — especially during the holidays.
Featuring an interview with Ryan Burhop, SDE Client and EXTRA pro user.
For many wedding photographers, the income stream from a wedding ends when the images have been delivered to the clients. Digital images delivered means job done. Right!
But what if that wasn’t the final answer? What if you could continue to make money after the wedding with no more work than you’re already doing? You’d be all in on that, right? Do I hear a “heck yes!” from the crowd? If so, let me introduce you to Extra — a stunning wedding photo gallery site that sells prints for ShootDotEdit clients and ALSO offers free storage, free hosting, an automated state-of-the-art sales & marketing engine, and takes zero commission.
Simply put, taking advantage of Extra after every wedding generates the closest thing to free money you can get.
Once the hard work of shooting a wedding is over, many photographers continue to earn extra income by selling products and print sales.
Make Good Use of Holiday Coupon Codes for Print Sales
We conducted a survey of some of our best ShootDotEdit photographers to get tips on how they increase their income in the off-season. Across the board, coupon codes and vouchers seem to be a foolproof way of encouraging clients to buy printed products in the winter months.
As a wedding photographer, learning how to start a photography blog is essential to the success of your wedding photography business. Blogging is a way to highlight your photographic talents, while also showcasing your personality. With a blog, you can generate interest in you and your photography brand. Your blog can then lead to building an even larger client-base.
In-Person Sales (IPS) can be one of the most challenging parts of your role as a professional wedding photographer. IPS photography sales include products and services you provide for your wedding clients, some of which are easier to sell than others.
