I want to give a huge thank you to Heidi for taking the time to chat with us! I consider myself as much a student as the listening audience, and appreciate her sharing her extensive knowledge with us.
In this interview, we discuss:
- Communicating the benefits and values, as opposed to the features
- Example of communicating your value: “8 hours of coverage so that [insert benefit here].”
- Analyzing your past “perfect” clients, and know where their clients are, email marketing
- Blogging regularly: Sit down and make a list of the most common questions, their concerns, things you’d wish your clients would ask.
- Being fiercely protective of your time, scheduling meetings with yourself
- Being realistic about the amount of items we put on our to-do list
- Batching tasks
- Undervaluing in mindset and pricing
- If you’re looking to outsource your photo editing, then Photographer’s Edit and ShootdotEdit are high quality services that do just that.
