A couple brief things.
1. I just received my RedOxx Skytrain Bag, the one discussed HERE. First impressions are excellent. It’s the perfect size. Not too big, not too small. This is a solid bag, built like a tank. The shoulder straps are excellent. I wouldn’t want to do a three day trek with it, but for my purposes I am just amazed by the quality. I’ll do a more complete review in the future once I’ve had a chance to test it.
2. Looking for a great way to present your images online? I know I consistently flog Evrium.com’s Fluid Galleries, but if you’re looking for something else, or something with some different price ranges – check out BluDomain. Link HERE. Some very nice flash templates here)
Once in a while Scott Kelby reminds his readers to go calibrate their monitors. Consider this your "go calibrate your marketing" reminder.
A few weeks ago I ran a series on self-promotion for the photographer. One of the fundamentals is that you remain consistent and committed to your marketing. It’s not magic and it’s not a one-time deal. What have you done today to polish your brand, or connect with a new client? Have you sent a thank you card to the clients you shot this weekend? Have you send a reminder email to the clients you’re shooting tomorrow? Have you printed Christmas cards for this year’s clients? Have you got a marketing plan and calendar laid out for the coming year? Have you submitted your stuff to a magazine or competition this month?
Now would be a good time to do that. Do one solid thing daily and the daunting task of consistently marketing yourself becomes manageable.
