As this is the last blog post for 2016, it seems appropriate to look forward to 2017. Rather than try to predict the future, here are some ideas for New Year resolutions that could help improve business.
Get more organised – In the cut and thrust of everyday business, it’s easy to forget to review how well things are organised. Getting better organised, particularly with production systems, can improve speed to market, save money and enable you to focus on business-building decisions.
Focus production – Less isn’t always more, just mostly. Think about whether you are inundating clients with unwanted images, and if so, do something about it with focused feeds.
Improve your social media presence – If you aren’t already on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, now is the time to start promoting your images and your successes. It helps keep and attract photographers, and aids sales. If you’ve already taken the plunge, have a look at the frequency and quality of your posts – are they achieving what you want, as often as you want.
Work around the clock – If you’re not already engaged in promotional activity and production work 24/7, you need to be. The image/video-buying world simply doesn’t stop at the end of business hours.
Add new revenue streams – Selling images with brands, ready-made image galleries, paid-for research services. The list goes on and on. Make 2017 the year when you pursue new money-making ideas.
