Do some engagements on social media.
Engagement is something that wedding photographers should not miss out on when they are in the process of growing their social media profiles. Social media is called as such for a reason. It means that as an entrepreneur, you should really go out of your way to make sure that you get to make your audiences feel inclusive in everything that you do in social media. There’s no point in growing an online profile if you are not going to bring interactions into the mix. It would completely defeat the purpose.
This is something that you have to really prioritize when it all comes down to it and something that you should learn how to do like the back of your hand. If you are a bit of an introvert and you feel as if you’re not that good with facing people per se, this can work out well for you as well. The connections that you make online are just like the connections that you meet in person, minus the awkwardness and the discomfort of trying to mind play each other.
Talk to people
If you are a new wedding photographer looking into getting some marketing action out of social media, make it a point to really talk to people. Respond to any questions that they might have. Make it detailed and friendly as much as possible and make sure that you do so in a timely manner. This makes people feel as if they matter and that they are important to you. Same thing goes for comments on your posts as well as any other comments that you may write up on other people’s posts. Engage them as much as possible. Make them feel that you are a fairly relatable human being and that they can feel free to ask you and talk to you if they want to open up about anything related to your craft. Followers prefer pages that they can relate to or get some kind of info or advice out of so go out of your way to really cater to their interactions, even if it means really sitting down to take care of it.
Visit websites and forums about wedding photography
If you don’t have enough followers to respond to, visit pages and forums that have something to do with wedding photography in general. This should give you more than enough room to spark up a dialogue somewhere somehow. Offer help to people putting up questions in there. If you will be able to establish yourself as an expert in your field, people will look up to you, follow you, and perhaps even wait around for the kind of content that you are putting up in your pages. They will feel as if they have something to learn from their association with you, even if it’s just in social media. This is the beginnings of how wedding photographers Dublin establish trust among their followers. This is how they build relationships with strangers that they haven’t really met before. Pay attention to the way you engage people in social media and see your following rate soar up.
