Get Listed on Review Sites
Welcome to this next lesson in expanding your online presence in this lesson. I want to just briefly mention expanding your horizons to other sorts of review sites, but they might be more specific to your industry now, I'm using wedding as an example because it's a popular industry and they have this set up for the wedding industry, two sides the knot dot com and Wedding wire dot com. These are places that brides and grooms, anyone getting married can go and it helps them plan their wedding, they can find local vendors, they can create a wedding website, a registry, all kinds of stuff. But if you go to the knot dot com for example, you can just find local wedding photographers. So let's go ahead and again, site look for san luis Obispo. Now this isn't where I live, but this is if I want to have another wedding with Isabel renew our vows, maybe we'd go up to slow. It's a beautiful, beautiful place. So again, just like yeah, just like google when you search for wedding photographers, dif...
ferent ones are going to appear. So you need to create this profile. Some of these are featured. I'm not sure exactly what featured means based off of their algorithm. But even on the not not many of these companies have that many reviews, I am sure that most of these results and the ranking of the results are based off of reviews as you go down, there are some lower reviews but at the top, it's a lot of five star reviews and so you want to make sure that you're asking your clients to leave reviews for you. So just like any of these other places you're gonna have your about section details, even pricing. So a lot of the stuff that's on your website, you can also add here. So definitely add your business here at the location, at your about section front that you took from your website. And then similarly, wedding wire is basically the same exact website. So if you go under vendors, you look up photography, we will again look up san luis Obisbo. I'm curious to see if they are going to be the same results or not. So it looks like wedding wire. Um, I'm not sure which one is more popular because I think both of them are pretty popular. Seacrest wedding photography 100 40 reviews. So maybe wedding wire is a little bit more popular. I don't see Seacrest in one of the top results here. No, so maybe they have a not profile. Maybe they don't, but that's why it's important to set it up on these sites. So, again, this one looks like with wedding wire, there are pricing prices on there. Sorry, I scrolled through that really fast and just want to make sure how you can actually set up your vendor down at the bottom. If you click on, learn about wedding wire for business. Some of these things cost though on a place like wedding wire or the not. Um, sometimes there's a free option if you want to be featured, you might have a paid spot and that might be something you do later on your in your business, when you reinvest and you into your business and you want to do that kind of advertising. So now is the time to go out. Set up your profile on those websites. If you are a wedding photographer, if you're not a wedding photographer, there are some other sites for general photography that you can set up a profile. One of them is scoop Shot dot com. Um this is a place where people can find professional photographers and you can again, if you're a photographer set up, set up a profile here. You just never know when people are going to be using a site like this to find a photographer in their area and you might as well have a profile ready. If someone is alright, see you in the next lesson.
