The Thirty-day Blog Challenge
As a small business owner I get tons of junk snail mail, emails, phone calls and managing that lot can get to be a challenge as customers trying to get a hold of me can get lost in the hot mess sometimes. There was one email though that I allow to get through as I liked it and knew that it was something that I needed to do more of to promote my business. What is this email that I allowed through the riff raff of junk, you ask? It was an email regarding blogging from Learn to blog .com and The Thirty-day blog challenge.
Over the years I’ve learned that customers want to know their photographer just as I want to know them so that their personality comes through in the camera. There is no better way to do this than blogging. You could argue that my personality comes through my pictures but that’s no going to work when one bride wants a dark Halloween wedding in a cemetery and another wants light and airy at her parents white picked fenced home in suburbia. Of course I want both jobs and definitely do not want to get type casted as a photographer that only shoots one particular style of wedding or portraiture. Also befriending customers on my personal FB page is not something I’d recommend so blogging comes across as a good way to get to know me typo’s and bad grammar included.
So what is my plan? Well the Learn To Blog has thrown out a challenge for its customers to post a blog every day for the next thirty days. Today is day one so expect another twenty-nine from this photographer.
Topics? They will be photography lessons, stories I’ve had happen to me on shoots, what inspired a particular shoot (currently my drag queen shoots are a very large source of inspiration), my largest show to date is coming up in May of next year so expect some writing about that and finally I’d like you my audience to suggest a couple of topics, I’ll do the research and then write about it.
So today is day one and my Thirty Day Blog Challenge Begins.
