Photography Marketing and Studio Magazines
a designer and photographer, I appreciate how a Studio Magazine can elevate
your business to the next level as well become an invaluable tool in the
branding process. They are affordable, versatile and per unit cost
less than what you would spend on a bunch of smaller handouts.
Studio Marketing Magazine's are designed to grab the attention of your prospective clients, for example, my Free People design targets your Senior Market. Inspiration for this design comes from the Free People / Anthropologies design aesthetic and, at the same time, has a timeless, editorial feel.
promotion and branding options with your magazine template are limitless (well
maybe not quite limitless, but if your imagination has no bounds, who knows
right!). Effective ways to market your Studio Magazines are in print - check out www.smartpress.com and becoming increasingly popular and cost effective is online publishing (free) check out www.issuu.com and www.MagCloud.com
Options to market with your magazine template as limitless as your imagination, following are a few suggestions:
- Easily provide your Studio Magazine to clients several ways, either as a printed copy, as an online magazine or email
to prospective clients in a .pdf format.
- Leave a sample with your business cards in hair salons, spa's, local teen shops (don't forgot mom shop's as well, since
they are the ones typically purchasing the shoot and goodies)
- Doctor's offices, Dentist offices, places where people are spending some time waiting for appointments
- Make a point of introducing yourselves to your local merchants, offer them a free product shoot, work out a trade or
offer a referral fee. List them on your website as favored vendors. Get them invested in helping you grow your business
and reciprocate whenever possible. It's pretty much a win, win situation.
- Talk to your local daily or weekly newspaper; request they do an article on you showcasing your magazine and images.
- Work with some local and surrounding area business' to hang your images, great way to get your name out there.
- Building a sustainable business means putting yourself and your work out there. Once you've done all this, don't forget
to check in regularly to make sure there are sufficient materials/business cards available. Build a rapport with these
business owners, managers and employee’s; it will come back in spades. They will respect your attention to your
All visual element goodies and text are included in this template. Text is written to use as is, or easily make small tweaks to fit your studio image. Drop in your logo, change out the studio name to YOUR STUDIO within the text, pricing information, change colors to work with your branding, insert images and voila! You’re done. Don't forget to make the studio name change within the provided text, have a friend or co-worker; better yet several people proof it for errors before sending in to print. There is nothing worse, than getting a marketing piece back and seeing a typo or worse.
