I was about to call it a day when I ran into this cool article that our previous client wrote about us. A few months ago, Joe & I did a corporate shoot for a really cool person. Not only did we have a blast with our shoot, we ended up booking a massage with her a few weeks later. And you know what they say about how difficult it is to find a real good hairstylist? Well, it’s the same for a massage therapist. So needless to say, now we know where to go. And for all of you looking for a great massage therapist who will actually spend time listening to your concerns and work to find healthy solutions, give Evonne from Nature’s Healing Arts a call. Treat yourself to a soothing massage from Evonne. You’re worth it!
Oh…and here’s what Evonne had to say about her marketing photo shoot with Joe & I…
Get Your Picture Out There
I have read many business and marketing books in my time as a small business owner and have tried many marketing tools and tricks. Some have worked and of course some have not. I try to keep the amount of time and money loss to a minimum and so have not really gone out on a limb with anything fancy to promote myself. That is until recently.
Last month I dropped a small chunck of change to get professional marketing photographs to use in my promotional materials and on the web. The company I got to do the photography is called Tonic Design Studio. They can be found at http://www.tonic-studio.com. This husband and wife team came to my office and took pictures of me and my office surroundings. They made me feel so comfortable and at ease that they were able to get some great shots. In general I am relatively non-photogentic, but they have such talent that I now have some incredible marketing shots of myself and my work. I am so impressed with the quality ot their work that I just can’t stop talking about it.
The main reason I wanted to get a good ‘head shot’ was for the purpose of business cards. I read somewhere in one of the many books on marketing, that a business card with your head shot on it will generate something like 20% more interest than a card without. Now that I have all these great pictures, I’ve also been posting them on all the networking groups I’m associated with on the internet. Hopefully generating some interest there, as well as making up new fliers, brochures, posters etc. I’m so pleased with the results so far, it is true, people actually open the brochures now instead of just tossing them, I’ve watched ’em do it 🙂
Thanks again to Tonic Design Studio for your excellent work and service!
