7 Tips for Starting a Newborn Photography Business

Are you thinking about starting a photography business specializing in newborn photography?  Then here are seven tips that can help your newborn photography business be a huge success!

Form an LLC

If you start a business, you need to protect yourself legally.  Because if 2020 taught us anything, you never know what the future holds!  Every business I have formed has been an LLC.  I go over the benefits of an LLC here.

Have a Website

Having a website if you are a photographer is a definite must.  It is a wonderful way to display your work.  And you can set it up yourself without any experience – and at a reasonable rate.  We tell you how to do it here.

Work on Your Website’s SEO

Once you have a website, you are going to want to make sure people can find you in search engines.  One way to do that is to work on your website’s SEO, or search engine optimization.  There are great tools that can help you if you don’t have any experience with this.  We talk about twelve of the best here.

Run Bing Ads

SEO is really important, but it can take time.  One way to go ahead and get your website at the top of search engines is to run ads.  That way, your ad jumps over other search results.

You can run Google ads, but I have found a lot more success with Bing ads.  Less people run Bing ads, so you don’t have to pay as much money for them.  But a lot of people use Bing, so I’ve been able to make sales for my businesses without having to spend a lot of money.  And one way to save even more money is to take advantage of this amazing great deal where you get $100 of free advertising.

Have Social Media Accounts

Your website isn’t the only place online you can get new customers.  You can also get social media accounts like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for your business.  Here are some tips to help you with your social media accounts.

Get Business Cards

Business cards are a great way to spread the word about your business.  If you’re telling someone about your business, you can hand them out.  You can also put them up on local bulletin boards like at Starbucks or Panera Bread.  And they’re very affordable, too.  Website Tips & Tutorials can find great deals for business cards, too, by clicking here.

Take Classes to Improve Your Skills

So I’ve told you ways to get the word out about your business.  But some of the best advertising is word of mouth.  And the best way to get good word of mouth advertising is by having a wonderful product.  So if you want to improve your newborn photography, consider taking these classes.
