Marketing for Chicago Wedding Photographer




By DavidSytsma

Just about anyone with eyes can see that weddings are big
business. Between the church and hall rental, attire, catering,
flowers. Obviously the list goes on and on and on. But the
detail that makes the day live forever is the photographs. In a
thriving, busy city like Chicago, the potential for a talented wedding
photographer is enormous. The trick is to get all of the
excited brides to be to pay attention to your quality work and book you
for the big day. A few marketing ideas may be just what it takes
to put your name at the top of the Chicago wedding photographer list.

First thing first, a website is amazing marketing tool for the Chicago
wedding photographer. In this day and age of Internet surfing,
their computer is the first place many people go to find
anything. A well designed virtual space is a great start in
having your work seen. Even if you had to hire someone to build
the site, you would still have creative license over what material went
on it. Your web page designer could provide the photographer with
a place to display a gallery of previous wedding photos. That is
what people really want to see. They want to know that the
wedding pictures will look beautiful and be a treasure for
always. This is also a great media for providing future clients
with a general pricing guide. Don't forget contact information
and hours of availability.

It seems like a no brainer, but never underestimate the worth of a
bridal convention. Sure there are other Chicago wedding
photographers there, but this gives potential clients the chance to
see if their personality and photo preferences match their chosen
photographer. After all, no bride or groom wants to spend their
wedding day arguing over pictures with the photographer. A
pleasant, easy going demeanor will go further in attracting new
customers than a whole wall full of perfect pictures, though that helps
too.

Like many small businesses, some of the most important marketing you
can do is referrals from previous clients. New brides like
nothing better than to talk about their weddings and you can be sure
they will mention the photographer. For better or for worse, your
name will be mentioned and if the bride or mother in law goes on about
what a great job you did, you can be sure their friends are going to
give you a call. Providing just a few couples with stellar
quality wedding photos at a reasonable price can almost guarantee your
success as a Chicago wedding photographer.

People don't become Chicago wedding photographers because they don't like weddings.
Get your name out there on the Internet, take a full page phone book page
if you can, and enjoy the word of mouth referrals you get just because
you have satisfied customers. Using some or all of these tips
could have you taking the pictures of beautiful, happy brides and
grooms for a long time to come.
