Why you should attend styled shoots quarterly!
Attending Styled Shoots is one of the best ways to grow your business! We believe everyone should go to a Styled Shoot at least once a quarter!
You create content for your marketing! No matter what type of vendor you are or where your clients find you you will need marketing materials to show off what your business does! This is a way to create content that aligns with what your ideal client is looking for.
Creative freedom! Seriously, what is the point of being a creative in the wedding industry if you never get to flex your creative wings?! Burn out is a very common thing in this industry. A great way to prevent it is by creating what you want to at least once a quarter! Be sure to sign up for shoots that match with the upcoming season so you have content to share that is appropriate. When you go to Styled Shoots you have the opportunity to be as extra as you want!
Styled shoots allow you to try new things without the pressure from satisfying a paid client. For photographers this means you get to try new poses and different lighting situations. For vendors who attend Styled Shoots you are able to try new techniques or pair up new items to decide how, or if, you like something!
Networking! Networking is so important for running a successful, growing business! Although you’re not usually networking with potential clients you are networking with the best referral partners you could have, potentially even your golden goose! In a world where everything is done electronically meeting face to face will make you stand out and help you truly connect with other industry professionals!
It’s a business write off. Seriously! These are a necessary expense. Your business needs marketing materials, if there is education included then you could write it off as training.
Get in with new venues. Brides love to ask if you have ever had a wedding at their venue. We do not recommend lying to them but we do recommend saying you have shot/doing an event there!
The opportunity to get Published! Although you’re never guaranteed to get published signing up for the right shoots will give you good chances!
It’s fun! Okay, we know that’s not a very good reason to spend business money BUT hear us out! Who says that you can’t work and play at the same time!
