| p.1 #9 · Leads for Commercial Photography |
I heard a friend say that for every day he shoots he spends a day prospecting for new clients. I have tried to follow that advice but as Jeffries and Cinseski note it ain't like it was.
In particular I identify with Jeffries aversion to FB. My clients are not trolling FB for photographers. They expect to find them through referrals and web searches as a part of their day job.
FB is critical for portrait, wedding, baby and senior photographers not, IMO, commercial photographers. G+ may be a better place but again it seems to me a lot liked LinkedIn and a Chamber mixer where everyone on there is anxious to be in your network so they can market to you not the other way around.
