Show Notes:

182 – I know it's nice to think you can just put up a website, post a few times on Instagram and get found by tons of clients.

I sure wish it was that easy.

 

It isn't. You have to actively market your pet photography business to get found.

 

One of the best ways to do that, according to Zoe Hiljemark, is local PR.

 

Public relations. AKA earned media.

 

We're talking about getting your name and work out there in your community through local news media, from newspapers to TV stations and social media influencers.

Guys, getting your story into local media outlets helps establish you as an expert in your field. A feature in the local newspaper or lifestyle magazine can do wonders to showcase your knowledge and skill as a pet photographer.

 

You build trust within your community and get the attention of potential clients.

 

Make sure you listen to this episode with Zoe and find the confidence to put yourself out there.

 

People love pets. People will love your work. People will love you. But they need to know about you first.
