I think the most asked question with getting into becoming a content creator is “how did you grow so fast in such a short period of time?” Though I haven’t really scratched any surfaces , here’s a couple things that helped —
✅ I became an active member of a niche , before offering a product/service I could monetize on . This helps passively build your contact list in whatever you wanted to get into creatively .
✅ When I wasn’t editing ; I would worry about sharpening skills instead of outright marketing ; if you make a product that’s good , someone down the line will invest in it . Sometimes good work is marketing enough.... sometimes ✅ I don’t fear travel ; some people are afraid to leave their own backyard for any number of reasons , one of my best assets is that I can back a bag and be on a train from Brampton to London tomorrow if I needed too , literally , I did that ...twice .
✅ I became very good at customer relations ; I try my best to avoid poor feedback ( though , you can’t please everybody ) and make sure the actual shoot experience is positive .
✅I’M EITHER FRIENDS OR BECAME FRIENDS WITH MY CLIENTS !!! Keep in mind , you’ll have to set the lines pretty thick when it comes to business and friendship, however , I find the real ones never try to downplay your worth.
✅I see other creators as someone to learn from , not compete with , however , I low key have a very ‘Kendrick Lemar’s - Control verse ‘ type of attitude ..
✅ I try harder to get more work from my ideal customer ; it’s no secret that rookie creators tend to be less costly , however that will seem to change once they feel like they’re being taken advantage of; those aren’t anybody’s ideal customer at all . If making minor exceptions help with sustaining a positive shooting and business experience . Do it 🤗
✅ ASK FOR THE REFERRAL!! — did you just kill a shoot ? Why not ask that client if they can refer you , tag you in a post , or even tell a friend you know would enjoy the same service ! ❓❓❓ , what are some of your growth secrets ???👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾
