Social media is one of the best ways and platforms for you to market yourself as a wedding photographer.
If you have not really come to understand the aspect of how powerful social media can be when it comes to extending your reach or your brand as a wedding photographer, make it a point to try it out. There have been so many businesses and professionals out there who have already gained so much from social media.
You certainly should not be missing out on the action.
If you have not started growing your social media presence just yet, stop wasting time and start working on it today right away. Most of the social media platforms out there are for free. This means that you will be able to set up your profiles without any out of pocket costs. Social media is also a great way for you to really get your brand out there. Most people are on their mobile phones all of the time. In order for you to be seen as “legit”, you need to have a fairly strong online presence and social media can really establish that for you when it all comes down to it.
Get on it daily.
You don’t need to be on social media all of the time but you do need to be online at least once a day. This is something that you should really go ahead and make a routine out of. Even during the days wherein you don’t really feel like doing anything, you will still need to go online to make sure that everything is updated on your social media pages. Suffice it to say, it can be a bit demanding and a bit time consuming when you look at it from the surface but as you delve deeper, you will realize that you won’t really have to go ahead and spend too much time on it even if you go online every single day. Limit your time spend online to rough around an hour or two every day. Don’t go beyond that because you might really allotting it for your social media efforts as a wedding photographer anymore.
Be choosy with the way that you spend your time as a wedding photographer on social media.
You need to be very careful about this. The internet can be a rabbit hole that you can easily fall into. It will suck you out of your productivity if you are not watchful enough and as a new wedding photographer, your time is something that is very precious and something that you should guard tightly no matter what happens. Set a timer for so that you can measure the amount of time that you spend online and so that you do not end up wasting time just surfing through for personal reasons.
Reach out to vendors, and to previous and potential clients well on social media.
This is something that can really work well for you as a professional wedding photographer. The whole point of social media is for you to get out of your shell and to be social. Interact with people as much as you can.
