5 Tips for a Wedding Photographer Blog
Starting a wedding photographer blog has the potential to bring you a lot of exposure that can then be turned into business. It is important to get things right from the onset in order to realize the desired results. Here are a few tips that will help you design your blog so that it can work for you.
Resist the temptation to have a flashy blog design. Keep your pages simple yet pleasant. Your blog design should not make your posted photos look dull by being too flashy. Remember you want to sell the photos and not the blog.
You should make sure that your blog stays on topic and anyone opening any page of your blog should be able to know what you are about in the shortest time possible. It will also help if your blog is only about one thing.
3. Balance Personal and Business Info
Blogs are personal forums and, as such, there will be some personal information and personal happenings that you will post on your blog from time to time. It is, however, important to know how far to go with that as it could be your undoing.
You should update your blog on a regular basis. Updates should include samples you have posted though you could have the pictures for longer. An outdated blog gives a poor impression. Interesting updates will keep people coming back. While updating, remember to comment on posts from your readers.
Especially if you are into photography as a fulltime engagement, you can advertise your blog both online and offline to create awareness.
