I ask because I during a recent brainstorm session, I had great idea. You see, I’ve been studying a lot about business so I can enhance my photography business, so I’ve been entertaining my brain with all kinds of helpful information.
Anyways, I realized what a great idea it would be to network with owners of limo companies, along with others that are in the ‘party’ industry like photo booth rental companies, bounce house rental companies and well, you get the picture – haha, see what I did there. My learning is making me more creative!
In forming relationships with people like these, photographers like me can possible get more business. Think about it…
People hire limo services all the time for their weddings so that they can be transported away from their wedding in a Cinderella like fashion.
People are also starting to hire photo booth and bounce house rental companies more and more for their weddings so the kids won’t get bored. If wedding photography doesn’t work out for me, maybe I should try out the photo booth rental business; after all, I would still be getting to take pictures at weddings. ;D
So I hope you see what I am saying.
It may take a little while to build a business relationship with someone, but it will totally be worth it in the end.
My hopes are to do this and to eventually have these people recommend my photography services to some of their customers, and I can do the same for them. It will be a win-win situation for the both of us.
If you’re wondering how I plan to go about doing this, here are some of my ideas so far.
3 Ways To Network With Limo, Bounce House & Photo Booth Company Owners
1.) Rent a service from them and then make a good first impression. If the opportunity presents itself, I will work towards breaking the ice with them and then possible taking the conversation to a deeper level.
2.) If this doesn’t work with one company then I will just keep on trying. With that attitude, I will surely find some one to work with in renting a limo, bounce house, or photo booth haha. That’s really what it’s about, folks. If you want something bad enough then you will make it happen.
3.) Reach out to them via email and start a conversation. Take the time to ask them genuine questions and learn about what they do in their business on a daily basis. People love to talk about themselves and more importantly, about their business if they have one. Wouldn’t you be?
These are all I have come up with so far, but plan to report back in the near future to give you an update on my progress.
Here’s to photography and limo services coming together in a networking event that is sure to change the lives of all that are involved. Meaning? The business owner I work with, the customers we help along the way, and of course, little ‘ole me.
Talk soon folks.
