I drove out to Shelton, WA last night to make a very specific image that isn't part of my ongoing #WE35 research, I will be sharing that image later, along with a blog post about it, but while I was waiting for it to get dark, a nice sunset started to appear.

The members of the Cincinnati Railroad Club undertook the daunting task of restoring Tower A which became their home. CRRC has been a tenant at Union Terminal since the club's formation in 1938 & club members provide staffing during the operating hours for Tower A.

How Baby Photographers Can Connect With OB/GYN Offices

photographer-marketing-obgynA really interesting topic came up in a Facebook group that I thought was well worth sharing with Photocrati customers.

The question was basically asking how to market a business through an OB/GYN office. What’s the best approach?

Before I get into some advice, I thought I’d also mention that this same approach can be done for a pediatric office.

Photography Marketing w/ OB/GYN

First thing I would recommend is to create drop cards that can be placed on a counter, or side table in the waiting room.  Pick up a bunch of acrylic stands for the cards from a Staples or similar type of store. That way the case is clear and all you see are your beautiful cards.  When my wife was pregnant and I would go with her to the doctor, every time she left I noticed a case filled with cards right next to the secretary’s window.

Promo material for you and the office can also be a winner. But there’s a trick to it, because the products need to market both you and the office.  Examples of this would be notepads with your photo in the background and credit at the bottom, with the office information at the top. These can be used by the office staff and also left in the waiting room with pens that have your photo wrapped around them. You never know when expecting mothers will need to write something down.

cake-smash

Taking this a step further would be custom appointment cards. Pick up a card from the doctor and then create an identical copy of it, but with the backside being your information.  When the cards come in, offer them to the office for free.  Many doctors will jump on the opportunity to save some money (I know…), even when it’s a simple business card sized appointment card.

If you want to make a huge impression, then step it up a notch by getting super friendly with the office manager and eventually requesting a wall to hang your photos on. Pick out your absolute best photographs, frame them nicely to match the waiting room’s decor and get those things hung so people see your work large.  On the same note, you could contact interior designers to partner with and they can potentially get your photos hung in many offices.

Something else to consider is including the doctors and interior designers on your freebie which you give away on your website.  By recommending them to your clients you’re giving them business and yourself business. Aside from the promo materials you are offering the office to use, you’re also giving back to the partnership with strategic lead generation. I created a kit which details this strategy, for wedding photographers. But it can be adopted for baby photographers as well.

Advice reworded from responses in the Facebook group.

How To Use Google’s Search Analytics in Webmaster Tools

google-search-analytics-webmaster-toolsGoogle recently updated their Webmaster Tools with a new feature called Search Analytics.

Basically the new feature (currently in beta) allows you to see how your content is ranking based on search keywords. From there you can drill down into various search formats like web versus images, or by location or time frame and so on.

The actually results are displayed by the search query, and filtered by:

  • Click count
  • Click through rate
  • Impressions
  • Rank position

I explored the new search analytics features to show you how useful it is for your website.

Now please head over to your Webmaster Tools area and check out Search Analytics.

Then begin optimizing your content even better based on your findings.

Featured Member Profile: Cheryl Machat Dorskind

Cheryl Machat Dorskind is a photographerCheryl Machat Dorskind, artist and author from Westhampton, New York.  She also happens to be a super happy Photocrati customer and we’re delighted to share some of her books with the rest of the community.

Currently Cheryl’s website is broken into two components. The main website is HTML based, made on her own in Dreamweaver. The blog portion is done on WordPress using the Photocrati Theme. Very soon Cheryl is converting 100% to WordPress and will be utilizing the Photocrati Theme combined with NextGEN Pro to sell prints and license photos.

To top off all of Cheryl’s business, she also mentors newer artists, so switching completely to WordPress opens the doors for how she can market her business online.

With that said, today we’re focusing on her latest eBook, published by Flatbooks (the same publishing company for some of my own eBooks).

photographing-children-naturally-cheryl-machat-dorskind-cover

Photographing Children Naturally is Cheryl’s latest book, and it’s super awesome.  In the book, she shares her knowledge and approach to photographing children in natural light.  But she also goes beyond just working with natural light.  She talks about the reasons behind photographing children and what it means for parents.  She discusses outfits and how you should present yourself as the photographer.

Page 96 of Photographing Children Naturally

Cheryl also includes checklists for how to prepare for the session, and a variety of resources to be prepared. Resources include equipment for working with light, backgrounds, software and more.

Cheryl is not only doing great things with our products, but she out there educating the photo community in such awesome ways. So we hope you will check out her website and books.
