5 Tips to Reduce Photo Shoot Stress

5 Tips to Reduce Photo Shoot Stress

Blog photography

Does the thought of a photo shoot make you cringe and want to hide? I know it can be a daunting task. But trust me, if you follow these tips it will be much easier and you might actually enjoy the process. It’s time to take a leap, and have your photos professionally done. You’ll be so glad you did. Let’s get going and talk about how you can manage the process and take the stress out of your photo shoot.

Planning

The key to a successful photo shoot is all in the planning. There are a lot of details to consider and organize. The sooner you have all of the details laid out, the easier it will be. Nobody wants to be worried about what they are going to wear the day before a shoot. I love to use Pinterest to help with my planning. I make private boards with outfits I love, location inspiration and celebrities that always look camera ready. I look at how they pose, their clothing and the general feel of the photograph. Pinterest boards are great to share with anyone involved with your photo shoot. Share with your photographer, makeup artist, stylist…

Make a List (or two)

I am a big list maker. I use Evernote because it helps me stay organized and I can access my lists on all devices. I am never without a list. But, use what makes you comfortable. If you make a list with good old fashioned pencil and paper, good for you. If you like to use Notes on your phone, that works too. I highly suggest that if you are a paper note taker, when you are finished with the list, take a photo of it. Lists can get lost, and you don’t want to stress about that. You have enough to worry about. Here are some lists I make for photo shoots;

  • Locations
  • Outfits
  • Schedule for the day
  • Playlist
  • Props
  • Types of photos
  • Mood of photos

If you are having photos taken for your website or to use on social media, consider shooting in multiple locations. You don’t want all of your photos to look the same. Also choose multiple outfits. This includes jewerly. Mix it up, especially if you are wearing statement necklaces. I shot quite a few in my house, moving furniture around to get the right light and vignettes. Don’t be afraid to mix it up. When the lighting was right, we went outside to shoot. For my most recent shoot, besides my house, we went to the beach, Downtown district and a park. Have fun with locations. Look around your town. Go down streets that you never travel. You might be surprised when you find some hidden gems. It could be as simple as a great brick wall with ivy, an old barn with weathered wood, an historic courthouse or library…

It’s important that you are in the right mood for your photo shoot. That’s where music can help. Make a playlist that you can use when on location. For me, I use Pandora. When I was home prepping for my shoot, I listened to an 80’s Rock station that plays lots of Guns ‘n Roses and Bon Jovi. I also really love Adele, especially Rolling in the Deep and Hello. Not sure why, but as soon as I hear her raspy, deep voice, I am instantly singing along and in a great mood.

Communicate

The most important decision you will make is your choice of photographer. You should connect with her and have confidence that she will help you through the process. Your photographer should understand what your goals are for the photo shoot. Are you looking for horizontal website images? Full body shots? Lifestyle/action images? What is the feel of your brand? Do you want to come across as strong yet approachable? Or are you playful and casual?

For the day of my shoot, I printed out a few pages and put them on a clipboard. This was to help us stay on point and not forget anything. My clipboard list included a few possible logos, my brand colors, details about my brand, location ideas, ideas for props, photos I needed and the moods I needed to express.

An added benefit of communicating with your photographer is that you will feel less stress on the day of the shoot. I don’t have a great track record with photo shoots and I’m not exactly excited about being in front of the camera. I’d much rather direct clients that are in front of the camera. My last professional photo shoot was four years ago. There was little to no planning involved other than what I was going to wear. The photographer showed up, I was dressed and ready to go. One of our last stops was a nature center. The photographer was directing me where to stand. I kept moving and eventually stepped into a bees nest! I was stung dozens of times and ended up at an urgent care. I had sprained my ankle and the doctor was concerned that I could now be allergic to bees since I was stung so many times. For two years I carried an epi-pen, just in case. The visual was straight out of an ’80’s cartoon where a character is being chased by bees and ends up running into a lake.

My recent photo shoot was, thankfully, not as eventful. Although I did end up with a frog in my house. After a super long day of shooting, I was taking off all the makeup. I looked to the right of my sink and saw a frog plastered against the backsplash! I guess it’s better than bees.

Back to communication. With all of the pre-planning that my amazing photographer provided, I was not even a little stressed. I felt completely at ease. In fact, the morning of the shoot, I even had time to go to the gym. I’d highly recommend you consider using Heidi Hapanowicz for your next photo shoot. When you buy one of her packages she gives you Personal Branding Photography Course, a $499. bonus for free. It is pure gold! In this webinar series she teaches you how to;

  • Define your brand
  • Choose locations
  • Find flattering outfits
  • Pose
  • Understand your body language
  • And so much more!

Can’t travel to your shoot? Don’t worry! Heidi does the traveling for you. On her schedule this year, she will shoot in Miami, NYC, Greece, Paris, Italy, Cannes/Nice, London and Chicago!

Organize

Pick a location in your house where you can lay out all of your clothing, shoes, accessories and props. I ordered a garment rack so I could have all of my outfits clearly organized and ready to go. You can get them for around $24.00 here.

Before my photo shoot, I was easily able to line up all of my items, make sure they were pressed and make sure that I had all needed accessories. Looking at everything nicely organized makes it easy to see if something is missing.

If your brand colors are grey, navy and green, you probably don’t want to have your photo taken wearing purple or orange.

Take a Deep Breath

If you are stressed it will show in your images. Remember throughout the process to take a deep breath. Sometimes it helps to just look up at the amazing sky and to think about all the things you are thankful for. It also helps to think about something funny. Lighten the mood a bit and have a great time.

Remember that social media and your online presence should reflect the real you. Not a made-up, fantasy you. If you want to connect with people on a personal level, build their trust and eventually work together, you need to be real and show your personality. People like genuine, down-to-earth, likeable people. Be you, not somebody else.

When was the last time you had your photos taken for business? Tell me what it was like. Where you happy with the final images and the process? What could have been better and why? Lastly, if you loved your photographer, let me know. I’m always happy to meet people that are great at what they do.

Who is Your Ideal Client?

Who is Your Ideal Client?

Blog business tip

What? You can’t find new clients? I bet I can help. There are some basics you need to understand first. Let’s start with a story about knowing your ideal client.

I have a 16 year old daughter. If I send her an email, it would sit in her inbox for eternity. She doesn’t do email. Neither do her friends. What if my ideal client was a teen girl? I can further define, saying my ideal client is;

  • in high school
  • has many friends
  • spends hours on her iPhone
  • has 100’s of selfies on her phone
  • loves fashion and makeup
  • is active and only wears LuluLemon
  • plays multiple sports
  • knows the words to all songs on her playlist
  • is focused on succeeding in school
  • she gives 100% with everything she does
  • has many online only friends

Who Are You Marketing To?

Let’s say my company sells a monthly subscription that includes all things fashion and fitness, geared towards teens. Each month, subscribers receive a workout outfit and a sample of makeup and hair products. If I wanted to reach these teens, would I try and build my email list and send them lots of emails? NO! I’d find them where they naturally spend time. I would figure out what social apps are hot at the moment and spend my time there trying to connect with my ideal client in their usual, comfortable spots.

My daughter recently told me a story about one of her friends asking another friend about Facebook. One said to the other, “I think I’m doing this wrong. You need to teach me Facebook.” For me, that is where most of my friends and peers “hang out’ on social media. It was funny to hear her say that Facebook is basically “foreign” to them. They don’t understand it. They don’t spend time there. They are not interested. They just don’t get it.

But, they are interested in other social networks. I would likely find them on Snapchat and Instagram.

Yes, they both sell coffee and food. But there is a HUGE difference in the way they market and in the customers they attract. For the usual customer at Dunkin’ Donuts, if they can go there and buy a medium coffee for $2.09, why would they go to Starbucks and pay $3.95? As you know, Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts each have very loyal followers.

How Do You Connect?

Back to the teen girl. How do I find her? How do I market to her? I definitely would not email her if I expected any response. So, how would I reach that target market? Simple. You need to know your ideal client avatar. Let’s do an exercise to figure it out.

According to Laura Kinoshita (published on Hubspot), “A customer avatar is a fictional character that represents your ideal prospect. When complete, it will help you understand the motivating beliefs, fears and secret desires that influence your customer’s buying decisions. Your customer avatar will help you fine tune your marketing efforts and help you understand why some products sell better than others.”

Knowing your ideal customer is key to understanding your business and your potential clients. Start by printing this workbook (sign up required) and then let’s work together to fill it out.

An Ideal Client Avatar is a way to get into the mind of your ideal client. I want you to think about who your ideal client is. Think about her life. Figure out as many details as you can. You can’t market to everyone. You can’t please everyone. An ICA is a way to narrow your focus and figure out how to market to the people that you can help the most. If you didn’t already print the worksheet, do it now.

Here’s a excerpt from my workbook:

Are They Telling You the Truth?

Are They Telling You the Truth?

Blog

Are your trusted advisors telling you the truth? When you ask for someone’s opinion about your business, do they say things like,

  • It’s great.
  • I love it.
  • Perfect.
  • Sounds good to me.
  • It looks amazing.

But, do you know deep down that it’s not “perfect” and things just aren’t working? I received an email a while back from a client that was frustrated with her business. She said,

I hate getting feedback from most people because they always say, yes, it’s nice! That’s great! Wonderful!… BUT, I know it’s not… and it’s not working.

How Do I Look?

It’s a bit like when you ask your husband, “how do I look in this dress?” If it’s not your best look and he’s honest with you, you’ll likely be mad. On the other hand, if he says something like, “you look fine” and you later catch yourself in a mirror and KNOW you don’t look fine, you’ll be mad at him for not being honest. I know better than to ask those types of questions and instead opt to trust myself and my own opinions. But what do you do when you have a business and NEED another’s opinion and constructive feedback?

That brings me to the point of this post. Who do you trust to give honest feedback? It’s a tough position to put family and friends in. They want to support you. They want to maintain a healthy relationship with you. So, they are likely not going to tell you the honest truth. Simply put, they don’t want to hurt your feelings. It’s also possible that they just don’t have the background or understanding of what you do to provide constructive criticism. So what do you do? Who do you turn to when you have no team?

That’s Where I Come In

I collaborate with business owners that have no team, or just want an outsider’s honest feedback. Rather that get frustrated with your family and friends, leave them out of your business and seek outside help.

3 Ways to Build Customer Relationships

3 Ways to Build Customer Relationships

Blog Customer Service

What if your customers disappeared tomorrow?

Would you wish that you had nurtured those relationships instead of taking them for granted? If you’re like most of us, you didn’t open your business and have hundreds of customers knocking down your doors. You worked hard for your first customer and likely continue to work hard for each and every new customer. Building a lasting relationship with your customers is much like working out. While it would be great if we could go the the gym once and be fit for life, sadly that is not the reality. If we want to be in great shape, we need to work at it everyday. You need to lift weights, take a spin class or two and make healthy choices in the kitchen. The same goes for building customer relationships. You might be the most energetic, magnetic, memorable person on the planet, but you still need to establish, build and nurture those relationships. It’s time to do some heavy lifting and marathon training where your customers are concerned. Here are three ways to build a relationship with your customers.

#1: Thank Them

I am big on the value of a thank you card. As a business owner, it doesn’t matter if a person is a one-time or a long-term client. Sending a thank you and letting each customer know they are appreciated might turn them into long-term clients. And they will be more likely to recommend your business to family and friends if they have had a positive experience. A thank you is like icing on a cupcake. You would likely have enjoyed the cupcake all by itself, but with the icing it’s that much sweeter. Just this week I received a hand-written note from a person I have only met once. We are connected via a private Facebook group. A note from her was completely unexpected and greatly appreciated. Receiving this note furthers our relationship and makes me feel more connected. People like to feel appreciated. It doesn’t take much effort, but can have measurable, lasting results.

#2: Express Genuine Appreciation

Do you ever receive mailers offering “new customers” a special price or savings? When I receive those, I wonder why new customers are more important than loyal, existing customers. Do you know what it costs to acquire a new customer? If you’ve ever looked into it, you’ll know that is a lot cheaper and easier to keep existing customers. According to an article on Entrepreneur.com, written by Lon Safko,

One miscalculation that many business owners make involves the ease with which they will attract customers. This is called field of dreams marketing. Small-business owners are generally experts in some other areas and somehow they believe that if the core message of their marketing is, “Hey! We are selling XYZ, and we’re now open!” people will start pouring through the door.

When I was researching data for this post, I found many articles all with widely varying statistics about how much it costs to acquire a new customer versus keeping an existing customer. Some sources say it costs 4 – 10 times to acquire a new customer as it does to retain current customers. Other sources say it’s as high as 30 times more! If that doesn’t make you appreciate your current customers, I don’t know what will. They are valuable – make sure they know it!

#3: Connect With Them, As People

This can be as simple as an email. We have all heard the old adage, out of sight out of mind. It’s never a good thing to be “out of mind” of your customers. Do you ever send a message to an existing customer just to say hello? I’m sure you send your usual funnel of emails and offers to purchase your latest products or services. But, do you ever really just send them an email that is completely for them? It could be a free download, a webinar series or other piece of information that would benefit your customers, without benefit to you.

For those of you that work from home, this next one can be tough, but trust me – it’s essential. Networking. Yes, I said it. You need to get out and network. While I’d hope your customers would be happy to receive your emails, I bet they would still prefer to see you in person. Have you ever been friends with someone on social media and then you get the chance to meet in real life? I have and it was amazing, on many levels. Here are a few stories.

Thank You | Gramercy Social | Sonja Pound

In 2013, I decided to attend a Mari Smith event. I had been following and learning from her for years. The event she was promoting was for an intimate group of people (I think it was 20) to spend two days with her to learn about Facebook and online marketing. As an add-on, I chose to spend a third day with her and only 5 other people. For years I knew all about the online Mari, but I had never interacted with her face-to-face. She is genuine and caring online, but meeting her in person and spending real time with her allowed me to get to know more about her. It allowed us to connect on a personal level that had nothing to do with Facebook. We found that we had more than just social media in common.

Have you ever heard of Lisa Larter? She is another woman I had the privilege of meeting in person. I noticed her Facebook group one day in my sidebar. I don’t know if it was an ad or if I had friends that were in the group. Something compelled me to click. I joined one of her private Facebook groups and began interacting with her and the group. I learned a lot from her and months later found out that she lives not too far from me. We arranged to meet in person just a few months ago. She was delightful. I really appreciate strong women that tell it like it is. That’s how I describe Lisa.  She is incredibly smart, giving, thoughtful and savvy. Again, meeting her in person, allowed me to see if the online Lisa was at all like the real person. I couldn’t have been happier that they are one in the same. Her personality really comes across on Facebook Live, her posts and in her book. But if you ever have the opportunity to attend one of her events – hurry up and register! If you aren’t already following her, start here.

You can also connect with people you know online that sell products. I connected with Vickie MacFadden who owns PromoRX, a company that sells upscale promotional items. We have only spoken on the phone once, but we refer work to each other, knowing that we both have the same quality standard and work ethic. We continually build our relationship by referrals, emails and providing feedback for each other.

These three women know exactly how to build and nurture relationships. Just this week I received a wonderful, hand-written note from Lisa. Small gestures like that are meaningful and will make your customers see how important they are. I have probably read the note she sent to me, somewhere in the neighborhood of five times. It makes me smile every time. And, a few months ago Vickie sent me a water bottle that her company sells. Each time I use it, I think of her and it makes me smile.

These two meetings with Mari and Lisa would not have happened if I sat home and decided not to network. Nor would they have happened if they didn’t value relationships. Sometimes, you need to get out of your comfort zone and push yourself. I would not have built relationships with these two women from my home office.

Do you have other ideas for building customer relationships? How do you thank your existing customer? Have you received a thank you that reminded you that the business appreciated and valued you?

How to Stop Information Overload

How to Stop Information Overload

Blog

Are you overwhelmed with too much information? Not sure who to follow and where to focus your time? For a few years I was on webinar overload. I needed a break, a hiatus, almost an intervention. I just couldn’t stand one more webinar series. I already had many that I hadn’t completed. I was determined to finish all of those before considering signing up for another one. It wasn’t easy. Everyday, I receive offers from very talented people offering to share their knowledge that will certainly help my business. I see them in my inbox, on Facebook and Twitter. But, sometimes you just have to say – Enough is Enough. So I did just that. I already had registered for, and not completed a Facebook Ads webinar series by Andrea Vahl, and had countless replays waiting for me in my inbox from amazing people like, Amy Porterfield, Chalene Johnson and Steve Dotto.

Here was my plan;

  1. Watch and learn from the webinars I had already purchased.
  2. Watch and learn from select free webinars I signed up for.

Here comes the BIG plan that worked. I decided to ONLY learn from two people at a time. Maybe this sounds crazy, especially when we are enticed by so many offers everyday. But, I felt pressure and stress to watch them all. And, guess what? That’s not possible nor will it create miracles in your business or life. It will leave you feeling exhausted, overwhelmed and with a to-do list that is physically impossible.

I decided to follow and learn from Darren Hardy and Lisa Larter. Simple. Two very impactful people that I was sure to learn from and have the time to implement their ideas. That is the point, right? Take what you learn and take action. That just isn’t possible if you are spreading yourself so thin that you have no time to implement.

Years ago, the first webinar I purchased was from Mari Smith. To learn more about her courses, go here. One thing she repeated was to ‘master one social media site and then move on to another one’, if it makes sense for your business. It’s the same idea when learning from people.

Enough Information, Already!

I have been listening, via Audible, to Darren Hardy’s latest, The Compound Effect. It’s a great way to learn in times when you aren’t sitting at a desk. My favorite times to listen to audiobooks is when I am driving and walking my dog. My head tends to be clear and I am not focused on five things at once. In the morning, I start my day with a green juice and a little Lisa Larter. I sit quietly and read or reread parts of her book, Pilot to Profit: Navigating Modern Entrepreneurship to Build Your Business Using Online Marketing, Social Media, Content Marketing and Sales.

You can learn more about Lisa’s book here. http://gramercysocial.com/transform-business-30-minutes/

Pilot to Profit | Sonja Pound | Gramercy Social | Information

When reading an actual book, I like to sit quietly with no distractions. And, I always have a highlighter and a pencil nearby. I make notes in the margins and highlight the most important elements for my business. I take notes on how and when I can implement and of any questions I have. Lisa has a private Facebook group where she hosts a book club. It’s the perfect place to ask questions about her book. She can clarify or offer more details on areas I was unsure of.

I know it sounds too simple. But, allowing yourself to say NO to all that is offered can be a huge relief. I can almost guarantee that you will be more productive and more focused. I strongly believe that you will be able to get more out of the teachings you choose and be able to implement them without the stress of having too much to do.

Now it’s your turn to stop information overload. How many courses are you signed up for? Do you complete one before you start another one?

Question: Do you think you could commit to learning from only two people? If so, what two people are you going to start with?

Two Steps to Take Control of Your Task List

Two Steps to Take Control of Your Task List

Blog productivity small business

I am pretty sure I am not alone feeling that I have way too much to do and not enough time. Work, house, kids, dog… The task list, also known as a to-do list, goes on forever. I used to feel overwhelmed with my lists. I would have a list on a notecard, and start another list on my phone. I would cross of three items from my list and add five new items. It truly was like a hamster running in a wheel. I could never catch up. That is until I started using learning from these two virtual mentors.

Step 1: Chalene Johnson

My first trusted virtual mentor is Chalene Johnson. As a fitness enthusiast, I have completed most of Chalene’s workouts (Chalean Extreme, Turbo Fire, PIYO) and follow her on social media. She is not only a fitness coach, but a life coach. She is a person that leads and teaches. Her New York Times bestseller, PUSH: 30 Days to Turbocharged Habits, a Bangin’ Body, and the Life You Deserve was life changing.

In my opinion, one of the most important sentences in Chalene’s book is, “Your goals should mesh with your priorities.” She continues to explain saying,

“Your goals should mesh with your priorities. All of them. Ask yourself if the goal could compromise one or all of your priorities. If so, is there a way to accomplish nearly the same results in a creative way that doesn’t compromise your priorities?”

Task List Productivity | Gramercy Social

What does that mean and how will it help you take control of your to do list? Simple. It means that if an item on your to do list is not going to directly help you reach your goals and takes your time away from priorities, then don’t do it. It’s that simple. For example, let’s say you run a retail store selling custom stationery, invitations and housewarming/hostess gifts. Your priority is to increase sales by reaching out to the community and giving back, while still having ample free time to spend with your family. Some items that would mesh with your priorities are;

  • Creating invitations for a community fundraising event.
  • Creating custom baskets or auction items for a well-attended charity event.
  • Scheduling time for work and time for family.

Some items that would NOT mesh with your priorities are;

  • Attending Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas and missing your child’s recital.
  • Managing all aspects of your business, including items that can be delegated like creating social media images, traditional marketing and email marketing.
  • Saying yes to any requests, such as pet sitting, managing the soccer team…

Step 2: Brian Tracy

The one-and-only Brian Tracy is my second virtual mentor. Remember that list I was talking about? Brian Tracy was instrumental in helping me manage that never-ending list. Eat That Frog was the first book of his that I read. There were so many takeaways that I can’t even begin to write about all of them. It is a book that you need to read and highlight items as you go along.

Purchase Eat That Frog here.

Brian Tracy suggests that in order to be productive, you need to plan your day in advance. An important part of that plan is to break down larger tasks into manageable parts. For instance, if you have to write an e-book for a client, instead of your list saying “write e-book”, your list should look something like this;

✔️Define the audience

✔️Determine scope of project

✔️Craft a working title

✔️Create an outline

✔️Work on rough draft for outline items 1 and 2

✔️Research quotes to support your points

✔️Write a first draft

✔️Send first draft to editor

✔️Revise as suggested

✔️Decide on graphic designer to create final look

To read more about Brian’s thoughts on productivity, read this blog post.

Brian and Chalene quickly became my virtual mentors. By following their simple advice, I have been able to accomplish more in less time. I no longer feel like my list controls me. I am in complete control and can easily manage my day while being more productive in less time. Who doesn’t want to do that? How do you manage your lists? Any advice to share? Please comment below.
