Default Re: How did you get the word out?

Um, business cards. Word of mouth. I've always had an outlet. I worked in studio, people liked my work there there, hired me outside of it. I worked at Cypress Gardens and then the YMCA, took pics at both, people like, hired me outside of it.

I use Cypress now as my outlet where I hand out business cards with a picture of a Belle on it. Works well. And It's like the Disney princesses. So, I guess I'm lucky always having an outlet of some sort. Where do you do sessions? Word of mouth is a powerful thing.
