Make the Best Possible First Impression with Potential Co-Marketing Partners

Make the Best Possible First Impression with Potential Co-Marketing Partners

We love seeing the creative ways photographers are marketing their studios. Rya of Rya Duncklee Studios shares, "My goal in creating a professional and polished marketing kit geared specifically to potential co-marketing partners was to create a fantastic first impression, thus locking down a long-lasting mutually beneficial relationship. I used a variety of products to complete the kits including the Small Welcome Folders from the Paper Shop, the Vendor Marketing Kit, and the Frame Shop Show & Sell Kit. The 4x6 Frame Shop samples are a great way to display my studio's gift certificates that I include as part of the kit.

After ordering the Vendor Marketing Kit templates, I ordered everything for print through my pro lab, including a set of 5x7 prints to include in the kits. I included 5 of my best images in each kit and bordered the images with the included image borders. I ordered the 5x7 prints with a white thick border, which is a great-looking option that gives your sample prints a gallery-type feel. To take it a step further, I made a small slit on each side of the folder where I would lay the prints and strung a small piece of ribbon through the welcome folder and tied it around the prints. I loved seeing this idea in Design Aglow's sample image. I think it gives that final added touch and adds a bit of a wow factor immediately upon opening the kit.

Finally, I neatly packaged everything up in Design Aglow's Small Welcome Folders and used a business card sprayed with tacky spray adhesive to seal the kit. Voila!

I like the the Vendor Marketing Kit product because it allows me to put my best foot forward and make the best possible first impression with a potential co-marketing partner. What's more is there are several useful templates included in the kit that I know I will modify and adapt to other marketing materials.

I'm about to distribute these to a few local vendor partners this week and am so excited to see what they think!"

As a photographer based in Charleston, SC, summer is my busiest time of the year. So instead of vacationing elsewhere, I like to escape in my own city for a few days at a time. Given that Charleston won the 2016  “World’s Best City” award by Travel & Leisure, after being a top city for the past four years, there’s plenty to see and do and see as a guest in my own city!

There are the obvious benefits to being your own boss. You control your own schedule. You decide what direction you want your business to go in. You deal with your clients directly. The business is 100% YOU. Then there are the not so obvious obstacles to being your own boss. You control your own schedule. You decide what direction you want your business to go in. You deal with your clients directly. The business is 100% YOU! Everything is on your shoulders. You must have self-discipline to get things done on your own time, all while wearing 100 different hats. I am my own editor, creative director, location scouter, accountant, marketing material designer, client care and customer support team, the photographer, and so much more!
