Three Ways to Drive Traffic to Your Photography Website

[Reading Time: 2 minutes]


What’s the point of having a website for your photography business if nobody sees it?! We’re showing you in this blog post how you can drive more traffic to your website, so you can show off more of your portfolio. And, of course, bring in more inquiries!

So, what can you do to bring more traffic into your website?

  1. Engage with wedding vendors. We’re looking at you, wedding photographers! Even if you’re slower in booking right now, nothing is better than reaching out to vendors you LOVE working with (or you’d love to work with) and building those relationships. They’ll likely refer your services to clients that come in and share any blog posts you write about their business!
  2. Facebook ads.  If you’ve ever started a new Facebook ad, it probably looked like it was in a different language. Well, to us it sure did! Check out Samantha Grant’s Facebook group called Booked Up Photographers + Wedding Pros! Sam has some REALLY amazing resources to help you get started (and feel successful!) with Facebook ads.
  3. Start a mailing list. It can feel intimidating to start a mailing list! But, it’s a great way to get in the email inboxes of clients who you’ve worked with or have expressed interest in working with you. We recommend The Savvy Marketing Co. for all your mailing list needs!
