I started my small firm last year, the whole time I have been doing it part time. At first I mostly shot dogs, people with dogs and kids/families.
Lately it's been more people/pregnant/some bigger family shoots and occasionally a wedding and some dogs.
It started okay with clients, then it went up and up but lately it's been going downhill and right now, I do not have 1 single booking! Auch.
Obviously I am doing something wrong but I don't know what. Giving 20% discount on bookings gave me 0. Paying for advertising on Facebook gave me more site likes but no bookings.
I tried going to a site for babies and wrote I needed some babies for a shooting, I need some more in my album - only 1 wrote me but she lives pretty far away. The shooting was for free but the images would cost a little, I wrote.
Exactly the same story when I was looking for some models for wedding portraits..
One thing I myself know I am doing wrong, are the lack of respond in posts in Facebook but I have no idea how to get people talking.
Guess I should advertise other places but it's so expensive and I'm not really sure where to do it.
I have a gift card coming up in an event which benefits people with cancer.
Have anyone tried something similar? How did you get back on track? Any advise are mostly welcome.
My site can be seen on whatupdog.dk (all text are in Danish). Maybe my prices are just to high.
I will change it a bit for better view, and thinking of including some happy mails from customers..
