As a newborn photographer, your goal is to create beautiful and timeless images that capture the precious early days of a family’s new addition. However, in order to reach your ideal clients and grow your business, you need to get found and SEO is how you can do it!
So let’s talk about search engine optimization (SEO). Here is the official description : SEO is the process of optimizing your website and online content to rank higher in search engine results pages (SERPs) and attract more organic traffic to your site.
When you rank higher you get more inquiries and we all want that! Many of my clients find that they are able to raise their prices when they start ranking because they are booking so many more clients.
In today’s digital age, potential clients are turning to search engines to find photographers. 90% of my photography inquiries come from Google and they are clients who are NOT looking for a deal. They are ready to book now not someday in the future.
SEO can help you rank higher in search results for keywords related to your business, leading to higher engagement and a better user experience. This can result in more leads, bookings, and ultimately, revenue for your business.
SEO can give you a competitive advantage in a crowded market by making your website more visible to potential clients and helping you stand out from the competition. We all know there are tons of photographers in the world, scroll any local FB group and you’ll see them. But can you find them on Google? Probably not!
By optimizing your website for search engines, you can also improve the user experience for your visitors. While the saying goes a picture is worth 1000 words, Google and your ideal clients would like to read some words and learn more about you. We cannot rely on just pretty photos to book clients, they want to know more about what you offer. When you include this info on your website you are showing Google AND potential clients that you are an authority in your niche.
SEO for newborn photographers is a long-term strategy that can deliver consistent results over time. Unlike paid advertising, which can quickly become expensive or constant social media postings which become unsustainable, SEO can provide a steady stream of organic traffic to your site.
