Does marketing your photography business overwhelm you or even stress you out? It seems as if trends and algorithms are always changing but 2024 gives you a new opportunity for growth and profitability. When changing your focus to quality content and an emphasis on video you will be able to strengthen your marketing strategies and connect more deeply with your clients. Read on to learn these valuable ways to better market your photography business.
In an age where the digital noise is louder than ever, you have to stand out with content that resonates rather than overwhelms. By following the “less is more” rule you can prioritize quality over quantity when you’re creating and sharing content online. This approach not only takes away the pressure of constant content production but also aligns with your content’s engagement. People are spending less time on the app and they’re taking a lot of intentional time to make sure that the content they’re engaging with and spending their time scrolling with actually matters.
By creating three to four pieces of high quality feed content per week you have more time to invest in creating messages that truly resonate with your audience. For example, allowing an Instagram story to expire before you hop back on and post new content can be more beneficial in keeping the content fresh and engaging.
Algorithms are forever changing. What this means is your message needs to truly connect with your clients. Connection with your audience is crucial and 2024 emphasizes the importance of having heart and mission behind your photography business.
Building relationships is not about follower counts or engagement metrics; it’s about fostering a community that genuinely connects with your brand and offerings. It’s relationship building that is your foundation for the success and the profitability of your business. By prioritizing meaningful interactions over chasing trends, you can develop a client base rooted in trust and loyalty – critical components for a sustainable photography business.
Buyer hesitancy is higher which means you need to have workflows to nurture your leads – adding them to your email list and showing up consistently.
Although it may be a hard pill to swallow, the evidence is clear: video is still going to be content king in 2024. While this doesn’t mean that you have to do a complete shift to exclusively create video content, there is something to be said about incorporating video into your marketing mix.
Longer form video content, such as website featurettes that express brand messages and behind the scenes snapshots, can captivate an audience more effectively than static images. This doesn’t discount the power of other content forms but recognizes video as an increasingly prioritized subject by most platforms.
Marketing in 2024 is not just about adapting to new trends but more importantly about shifting strategies with a focus on content quality, relationship building, and strategic video. While social media platforms like Instagram continue to change, the main principles behind marketing – delivering value, telling compelling stories, and fostering connections – remain incredibly effective.
By combining insights on content strategy, the value of relationships, and leveraging the compelling nature of video, you can curate a marketing approach that resonates authentically with your audience. The future looks promising for those who can balance these pivotal elements, paving the way for growth and profitability in your photography business.
