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!"

We have seen time and time again. Clients are more likely to order and upgrade their photo albums when they see a  pre-designed layout. After a year or more planning every little detail of their wedding; the last thing clients want to do is make more decisions. When you pre-design an album that blows them away, chances are high that they will approve and order the album as you've designed it.

About eight years ago, I was reading a recipe blog and somehow ended up on the blogger’s photography posts. I spent a ton of time going through her photography posts and just couldn’t stop thinking about how I had to give it a try too! My husband (who is amazingly supportive) got on board immediately and we bought a camera. From there, I read, practiced, and photographed family and friends, and it naturally spiraled into what it has become today.
