Creating the Online Storefront Your Business Deserves
The goal is to attract your ideal client with design and copy that targets their needs and solves a problem that they have. Most potential brides are looking for a photographer who is like them. They may be the type of person who wears J. Crew on the daily and gets married at the fanciest place in town. They may also be someone who camps in a VW van and gets eloped on a cliffside. The work you show and the website you show it on are important.
A lot of site visitors are only on a site for meer seconds. That means that you have seconds to capture a potential lead. Details matter. You may have been saying “I’ll get to my website I haven’t updated since 2014 eventually”. Your website is your storefront. Would you leave your storefront unattended for 4 years?
It’s time to up your game and attract the clients you want in 2019. Here are a few helpful tips we learned through the process of creating Edited by Artists.
