Congratulations to my November Gratitude Shared Shoot Grand Prize winners!
Stop motion videos are a great way to shake up your content and are now available as an add-on to your remote product shoot!
They're fun for your fans to watch and interact with, and they can tell a an engaging story - like this rebrand reveal!
I've been taking courses, setting up, and practicing with my new CRM and I just want to thank everyone for their understanding and patience while I work out all the kinks.
It's been a tiresome process but I'm grateful for the time it will save once setup is completed! Wish me luck!
Pricing changes live
In my last newsletter I teased a price increase for the New Year. To all who reached out in support of this thank you so much!
As a small business with expensive gear and software, it's hard to strike a balance in order to remain accessible to other small businesses, and yet afford necessary maintenance and upgrades.
Base prices have increased slightly but more so I am charging for add-ons that I once included, visible during the quote phase of booking. These are things like fresh flowers, gallery extensions, additional items in product shoots, stop motion videos, and advanced photoshop editing (ie: whiting out backgrounds for amazon listings). I have also had to reduce the amount of return shipping I will cover to £3.50.
One of the best FREE ways to support small businesses is to refer them to your contacts - send them to me to start accruing referral points! And you'll be helping them improve their marketing photo at the same time!
Thank you so so much for your support and understanding and please know that my prices would stay low forever if I could afford it.
Remember when you had to get invited to pinterest circa 2011? Yeah, I spent HOURS planning future crafts, recipes, and renovations I rarely got around to but I have to admit, it is inspirational eye candy and guess who's having another go?!
I've said it before and I'll say it again! Small businesses THRIVE off word of mouth recommendations and reviews. If you can think of anyone who would benefit from my photo services, please send them my way.
And if you would like to leave a review on Facebook, I've created a handy guide that takes all the guesswork out of it!
UPDATED GUIDE FOR 2021 FACEBOOK!
THAT'S ALL FOR NOW!
I leave you with a look at how we spent the winter solstice.
