Making a Good First Impression: 4 Tips for Photographers

Posted on

Its really dificult two read thru a post that the awthur hasnt korrected. Its like their knot even tryng!

That sentence was painful to write, much less read. My retinas hurt.

I want to talk about having a standard of excellence in all areas. In your photos, posts, on your business website, Facebook page, anywhere you have a public space for marketing your product.

We live in an age of Shortcuts and Textese. And, as business people, time is money. Yes, we want to capitalize on every minute, cutting our time wherever we can. However, excellent content and format isn’t the place to cut corners. I can’t tell you how many photography websites I’ve visited once and never returned to because of poor editing, both in photos and content.

Your website, blog, and Facebook page is an extension of yourself and your work and the first representation you give of yourself to others. Do you really want to give the impression that you’re sloppy in your work because you haven’t taken the time to thoroughly edit your content? For all visitors know, sloppy content equals sloppy photography work.

Here are some tips to give a great first impression of excellent product and quality:

1. Edit, edit, edit

Thoroughly edit your work before you publish it. If you’re not a good editor of content, find someone who is that can review your content for you. I’m the editor for a large website that has over 20 contributing authors. Their job is to write well, my job is to make sure it’s perfect. Do your work well and then, if needed, find someone to make it perfect.
