    Looks good and I think it will help you stand out as it shows your knowledge and that you really want to help educate them on their decisions.

    I'll get you both if you start stealin! :squint:

    Instead, we should start integrating out stuff. Spread the wealth. Each start publishing little mini articles on different topics, linking each other, guest publishing, etc.

    Build our networks together.

    Thoughts? OTAP > the world.

    I think that's an excellent idea. I wrote up an article for my blog last year that explained what retouching was all about. I included "before" and "after" pics that showed what I was referring to. I need to pull it to the front again.

    I read that earlier. Good stuff, Jared.

    Anyone got a link to that thread where everyone was posting up their blogs? I can't search.

    well, then start tweeting and adding my little article thingy to your blog! And start thinking of some stuff you want to write about and get out there, so I can do the same for you!

    Oh, and go buy inbound marketing. It's nuts.

    IMO!

    When we were looking at wedding photogs, the biggest selling points are the photos! When I opened your blog, first thing that hit me was..damn..that's a lot of reading. When I am browsing photographer's web sites (or blogs), I wanna see pictures first and will continue reading after you get my attention.

    Get my attention with your awesome photos first and then have a link to "how-to" somewhere else.

    Here's a link to our wedding photog's blog. -Personal friend of mine.

    oh, and plus your entry will get pushed down the history list as you make more blog updates. It'd be a great idea to perma link the how-to somewhere.

    I'm not trying to sell you anything on my blog. It's an educational article.

    There will be LOTS more how-to articles, but the plan is to have each of them posted in enough places, and the blog search-able enough that people can find the articles when they need them.

    I plan on becoming a hub of information for people who are getting married. I will have information, articles, links to other photographers, and of course, all of my information regarding my wedding photography business. I don't actually plan on having to 'sell' a wedding ever again.

    I definitely just one one solid cold client off of that article! :bowdown::noes: :eek3:

    an ex-gf that I had NO idea was following me on FB just thanked me and said she's still 'shopping'...

    Which means i've made it to her short list, without ever having talked to her ONCE about shooting her wedding...

    Class.
