    My biggest marketing issue is having to move constantly. My husband is an officer in the Army + we move all the time, lately on average every 6 months! It’s so hard to build up my reputation + if we stay some place ‘long’ (more than 6 months), I have to leave by the time the word of mouth clients come calling. IT IS SO FRUSTRATING!

    What is your biggest struggle marketing your business?
    Money and the time to research what will work best and the time to put together good marketing campaigns.

    My biggest struggle is deciding what marketing techniques will be useful and which are a waste of money.

    My biggest marketing obstacle is finding the right kind of clients. The ones who not only can afford to go somewhere other than a chain, but know and appreciate the difference.

  22. 922

    my biggest obstacle with marketing is what will set me apart from the rest as the photographer of choice for future clients? Word of mouth? The picture(s) i use to advertise? who i am as a photographer?

    My biggest obstacle is confidence in myself and my work. I doubt myself and wonder if my work is where it needs to be to go pro.

    My biggest struggle is print materials. Big time!

  29. 929

    My biggest struggle in marketing my business is the cost; I lack the necessary funds to get into any print advertising and am having to rely on word of mouth – not that word of mouth isn’t working! :-) Just isn’t working as well as I need it to.

    My biggest struggle is delegating my time evenly amongst business and work time and personal time.

    I think the biggest obstacle is having the time to do it all right at the same time–same look, quality of pieces, etc.

    Lindsay says:

    My biggest trouble marketing is getting started! I don’t know how to market, what audience to market or where the best first step would be.

    Joel Locaylocay says:

    I haven’t started a business yet. I believe what has kept me from getting started is figuring out the details on the business end (ex. pricing).

    Sandra Finch says:

    Never having enough hours in the day, lol … I work full-time as well, so finding a balance between marketing effectively, yet not too aggressively so that I become overwhelmed and unable to service the clientele …

    My biggest struggle is time, not having enough of it. I have actually been very blessed, the majority of my business has been from word of mouth. now I want to hit the next step and get my name out there more, have the ideas and creativity…no time.

    My biggest hurdle is finding the time to learn the basics of Photoshop editing to give my photos the “professional edge”. I find images that I love right out of the camera, but I’d like to know how to make them just a little extra special.

    My biggest marketing obstacle is trying to spread the word cheaply. Since it’s part time for me I can’t earn enough to justify spending a lot on marketing.

    lisa says:

    Toughest has been the steep learning curve. Wow! But with diligence and a LOT of reading I feel like I am getting somewhere. (Mostly to that place where you realize that the more you learn the less you know!).
    I’m an amateur, just looking to improve my straight out of the camera shots, AND my photoshop skills.
