I love starting my blogs with a little background about myself. Reflections, if you will, of gratitude, about how I got to this point. The main thing that comes to mind is my recent quest to promote my photography business to attract growth. It wasn’t always a thing. I was actually usually always shy and a little embarrassed, never wanting to be taken as boastful or self centered. I almost wanted people to somehow find out I was a photographer by their own means (through indirect inception) and let them, on their own, get mind blown about how amazing, and Humble for not bragging about my talents, I was . ;)
Like most situations in life, this sort of marketing, or lack of, doesn’t really work if you’re looking to expand and grow your service. At best, it may produce results at a glacial pace. If you’re going to want your business to grow, networking/marketing is essential.
I’ve noticed the increase in word of mouth referrals since I’ve decided to be more present and less discreet about my hustle. It’s even from people that I’ve never worked with, but that I’ve made great connections with and presented myself as a photographer to. That’s how I met the ladies of PMS Box. A Facebook inquiry, that led to a post-forward from a coworker/friend of mine, that resulted in me replying to it, and then the rest is history.
Damla, the COO of the company reached out to me. The one thing that was undeniable was her excitement about being a part of such an awesome startup. Her energy made wanting to be a part of this movement an easy decision. Being that it was a company that was in its infancy stage (2wks old) and already they were seeing interest and growth, made pursuing the venture beyond its startup realm a very attractive feat. Their current mission, establish a core team! And every company needs a photographer. Or three.
