I am proud to introduce a new personal project I have been working on. I’ve been thinking a lot recently about the importance of community and citizens supporting one another. I’ve also been pondering the difficulties small businesses face in today’s commercial market.
Business funds are tight, and advertising budgets for small businesses are often small or non-existent. Yet in today’s world of social media it is essential to consistently put forward content that is professional, engaging and current to sell our brand/products and maintain an active presence amongst our clientele.
Over the next year I am making a commitment to seek out, establish and nurture symbiotic relationships with other small businesses so that together we can continue to provide wonderful, unique and community based services to our clients.
I will be working with other small businesses in my community and offering them complimentary photography services. Business owners will receive headshots as well as images of their staff, products and services – digitally ready and available to use to promote themselves in marketing materials and social media. In return I am able to create additional content for my portfolio, build positive relationships with other small business owners, lay the groundwork for future collaborations and get a warm fuzzy feeling for helping others out who may not otherwise have room in their current budget for custom photography services.
There is power in a collective front, and I believe it is important for small businesses to harness the potential to work together and support each other.
There will be a limited number of collaborations available, so if you own a small business or know of somebody who could benefit from being involved in this project contact me through www.photographybyalanalee.com !
