How to Get More Customers with FREE Pro Photos
Updated: Sep 12, 2022
You made the decision to start a business. You invested in the lease, equipment, inventory, and perhaps even a hefty franchise fee. You followed all the rules for starting a successful business. And yet, you still don’t have enough customers to reach the profit you were expecting. Why not?
Well, I’m no Wall Street business expert, but I can tell you what I see missing with most small business start-ups….and that’s web presence.
You see, most of your customers are online…a LOT! You might even be surprised to know that the average person spends seven hours PER DAY online. And if you’re not in the mix with them, they simply don’t know you exist.
In fact, lack of web presence is one of the primary reasons small businesses fail within the first five years. That’s because most small business managers simply don’t have time or money for social media. But trust me, your competition knows that NO web presence means NO customers, and NO customers means NO company.
No Time or Money for Social Media
And that’s exactly why professional marketing firms exist, and why the average salary for a Social Media Manager is almost $80,000 per year.
Of course if you have an extra 80 grand, you should probably consider hiring someone. But most small businesses need another option, preferably one that doesn’t involve a major investment.
If you've studied marketing and sales, you know that one of the most effective marketing strategies is to offer prospects a free gift to convert them into paying custoers. You can offer anything you like but, as an entrepreneur, this is something I think about daily and I recently developed a plan that will benefit you, your customers, and maybe even me! (See what I did there!?)
Exclusive Gift for Your Customers
Let me just start by saying you can always take photos yourself, but on my FAQ Page I explain why it's better to enlist a pro. Plus, I have an offer that makes it super easy (and FREE) for small companies to convert prospective customers with a photo shoot from Beach Street Virtual Tours.
This exclusive gift is not available to the general public. In fact, it’s valued at $298 on my website, but I’m offering it to local small business entrepreneurs completely free on a very limited basis. This offer is perfect for small companies that specialize in home services like designers, decorators, cleaning services, and renovation pros.
You simply offer free photos as a gift to your new customers and the photo shoot takes place AFTER installation of product(s) or services. Your customers get fresh photos to share and display, essentially making them brand ambassadors for your company and you get an edge over the competition. Plus you get the opportunity to build good will with your client base by adding value to your service without the expense of physical gifts. You also get photos to share and display, making them vital tools in developing your company's web presence. Use them to…

Remember, converting local customers will result in converting more local customers. That’s why custom LOCAL photography (not generic stock) can help provide the social proof you need to GET GROWING!
In case you’re wondering…I’ll also use the images for my own marketing and social media making me another brand ambassador for YOUR company!
It’s a win-win-win!
Since web presence is strongly built around visual tools, it's hard to think of an industry that wouldn't benefit from pro photography. So, if you're ready to get more customers with a FREE Photo Shoot Gift from BSVT, click HERE to book a Complimentary Discovery Meeting TODAY!
