I created a website 3 months ago. I am trying to get the hang of marketing myself, but it's an uphill battle for sure. I have had 650+ views to my website and no inquiries, calls, emails, NOTHING. How can this be? What is the norm for this sort of business? Everyone told me my photography was great and I should try to make some money at it. Last Fall I built my portfolio a bit and had many photoshoots with friends and family. I have 180 Facebook fans, many of which I actually know and they all rave about my photos. Yet NO ONE wants to pay me to do it. I had my prices on there for awhile and they were in line with the competition in my area. In fact, I know for a fact my work is better than some of the others around where I live and I'm a better deal. Finally I removed all of the prices but the sitting fee to see if that was hindering people from contacting me. It's made no difference. I guess where I'm at is... I read and study and learn about all these things to tweak and do when you are starting out and how to not overwork yourself and what to charge and this and that. But all of the 'advice' assumes you actually have a customer! I have NONE. I have tried to look at my website objectively and I think it looks fine. Could you please take a look and give me any advice? I am thinking I may shorten the opening slideshow. But I think that little things here or there will always need to be tweaked on anyone's website. The overall shock is that no one has said ONE WORD to me since I launched it. With over 650 hits, averaging 26 hits a week, I'm just standing here with my jaw on the floor. I'm really starting to take it personally. Also, any marketing advice would be great! Facebook and Craigslist are my main ones now. But I also can run promotions on FB and no one cares. Oh they love my stuff, but NO ONE cares even if I said I'd do it free and give them free prints. (Not that I've said that, but I'd lay money no one would even respond.) What gives? Anyone else having this problem? Thanks so much in advance for any advice!
