Have you been hired for work in the past by someone, and never contacted again? It's really easy for people and companies that hire you, to use you once, and forget to use you again. Thats why it is so important, to repeatedly contact clients that have hired you in the past. And no, don't pester them with a barrage of e-mails like it's D-Day.
The occasional message every once in a while will land you more work. I like to think of it as creating more jobs for myself, and motivating the business I contact. Whoever you contact may have not even been thinking about more photos at that time, but your e-mail will get the thought process rolling. I try to send messages out about every 4-6 weeks to my regular customers. Sometimes it seems like the message is doing no good, then *POW* they hit you back a week later with a job!
So sit down today, and spend a half hour composing e-mails to all your past clients. I guarantee it will be worth while, especially since working with pre-existing clients is so much easier and cheaper than landing new ones.
That's the BUZZ for Today! Please check back soon for more.
