3 Ways Branding Photography Saves You Time

Tips 101

One thing all business owners can relate to is time management! We wear a ton of hats and our minds are constantly racing with the next 20 things on our to-do lists. It’s an exhausting game, but one you DO NOT have to do alone!

Outsourcing time-consuming tasks to those who do it professionally is a game changer! At some point in my business, I grew tired of revamping my website and trying to write compelling copy. It had taken me over a year and my website still looked the exact same. That’s when I reached out to professionals in those industries to see if they could help me. Four weeks later I had a full set of insightful copy and a plan for my website!

Think about some of the things that you struggle with and see if there is a professional that can assist you in saving you time, frustration, and money!

Is photography on that list???

At some point in your business, you’ll grow weary of figuring out what to post every day on your social media. Or, maybe it’s getting the right images on your website that portray how you help your clients. Whatever photography needs you have, it’s extremely difficult and time-consuming to do it yourself.

Three ways I can save you time with professional branding photography:

1. THE CONFIDENT HEADSHOT

How wonderful would it be if you didn’t have to search through hundreds of selfies in order to send someone a decent photo of yourself? No more scrolling through your phone, camera roll, or looking through hard drives. Each of my clients gets a personal app on their phone where they can easily access their photos at a moment’s notice. You can feel confident in sharing and posting your headshot in a matter of seconds.

2. YOU NO LONGER HAVE TO SPEND HOURS TRYING TO EDIT ONE PHOTO

Did you know it takes me 5 to edit an image? Yep! You read that right. Of course, this depends on the image, the amount of detailed editing needed, and the specific requests from my clients.

The thing about hiring professionals is that they know how to do their jobs well and efficiently! The keyword there being efficient.

I was recently talking to a google SEO specialist and was telling her how I dreaded going back through my website to shrink the image sizes of all of the photos on my photography website! I knew it was going to take me sooooo long! She chuckled and said, “You know, Lena, I have a program that will do that for me in ten minutes”. Done. I hired her on the spot.

So, if you find yourself sitting in front of a computer attempting to edit a photo and never liking how it turns out, STOP. Hire a professional who can do it incredibly well and quickly.

3. ONCE YOU HAVE YOUR IMAGES, STREAMLINE YOUR POSTS ON SOCIAL MEDIA

This has changed how I look at social media. Instead of it being a daunting chore I dread, I schedule my posts in an app called Plann. This saves me frustration, headaches, stress, and time! After your branding photoshoot, you now have a library of images that you can schedule a month or two of posts in 20 to 30 minutes!
