I see it as part of my job to set the scene for you take the best shots you possibly can. I create the moments, you capture them. Whether or not you realize it, we’re a team. There’s no reset switch, we only have one chance to get it right. The better we can work together, the better the outcome is for everyone.
To help us work better together, here’s some things I think you should know:

If a potential client is looking at several different web pages in Google search, what can you do to insure they will click on yours?
The 2 levers you can control on Google are your website’s Title and Meta Description. Get these right, and people will click on your website. Get them wrong, and no matter how good a photographer you are, potential clients won’t pay attention to you online.
Fortunately, more than 50% of your competitors either don’t have a Meta Description or have one that is too long. Your first step to winning clients is to get in the game and follow some basic rules:
If you are using AVG 2012 or 2013 anti-virus program for your Windows PC, you may not be able to install the latest copies of JD’s ROES Pro or JDLab2You. To fix this, you may need to temporarily disable AVG.
Step 1. If you use AVG 2013, update to the latest version. Issues with Java installs on earlier versions have been fixed.
For families on a budget, large, framed wall prints may be out of their price range. At the same time, relatively inexpensive canvas gallery wraps are becoming more popular. That’s why we offer special pricing on Cluster Gallery Wraps in ROES.
With a little advanced planning you can offer your customers a modern alternative to large framed prints that looks great in any size room, and that you can retail them for almost the same amount as a single large print.
The trick is this: when taking a photograph, instead of thinking of an image as a horizontal or a vertical, think of it as a panorama.
New photographers regularly ask us, “how much should I be spending on marketing?” Below are some general guidelines to follow:
