Business down or stagnant? When did you last…
Tip #1: Update the images on your website? (Google loves fresh content.)
#2: Refresh the “About Me” page on your website? (Again, Google loves fresh content.)
#3: Mail (using snail mail) a thank you to a client with whom you’ve recently worked? (Snail mail is so much more impressive than email.)
#4: Do an email blast to your existing and prospective clients? (Be sure to include your name or studio name in the subject.)
#5: Attend a networking event… even an art opening at a local gallery?
(EVERY gathering is a networking opportunity.)
#6: Took a client you haven’t worked for in a while out to lunch? (If you worked in a cubicle eight hours a day you’d be delighted to get out of the office!)
#7: Given a framed “fine art” print to a client for his or her office? (Include a note that if they can’t use it to pass it along to someone who can.)
#8: Delivered scones or bagels to a client you’ve recently worked with? (Enough for the entire floor or office!)
#9: Hand delivered an orchid to a client you have (or haven’t) worked with recently? (Orchids are exotic and last quite a long time.)
#10: Offered to photograph a client’s child next Saturday at the local park? (Yes, for free.)
Time to get busy!
