Since last summer when I started my business after graduating from Frostburg state, I have learned many things.
a. getting a business off the ground is harder and more involved than it seems.
b. traditional advertising does not work very well and is expensive.
c. social media is the way to go when advertising. (free and very effective)
d. For a photographer, nothing is better than word of mouth referrals.
e. Maryland is a demanding state to do business in.
f. living in city limits and doing business increases former demands.
g. being part of a networking group is great for business. (BNI is my choice, also the Chamber)
h. PHOTOGRAPHY IS FUN NO MATTER WHAT:)
Currently I am developing a brochure to attract soon to be high school seniors to my studio.
Portraiture is fun and always will be, as long as I get to approach it my way:)
