Shooting Star : Three FREE Marketing Tips

hosted a photography workshop last week (more on that coming soon!) and one of the most common frustrations and/or worries I heard from photographers dealt with marketing and/or booking weddings. Apparently, I'm loving and/or today. More specifically, how can a wedding photographer market his services with very little money? We had some great conversations, so today I'll be sharing three marketing tips for photographers.

In today's installment of Shooting Star, I'll be talking about... by using photographs from past weddings to connect with vendors... by way of Facebook to allow friends, family and fans to endorse your services... by way of your peers (if you'd like to learn more about this in depth, also check out this video)

If you have feedback, questions, or ideas for future installments of Shooting Star, feel free to holler back in the comment box below. Happy Thursday!
